3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Winerack, Henley on Thames, Oxon, Saturday 2nd August consumed at home Tuesday 5th August 2014 Light amber in colour with filmy head. This is quite American in style in that it is a little malty, its hoppy but the malts are a little too pushy. Mid bitterness, soft in mouth, washing up liquid, I like this (not hugely) despite my apparent remarks. Fine. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12. 3.1

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Clear, amber colour with small, frtohy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Piney hoppy aroma, a touch of orange, caramel malty background. Taste is bitter hoppy, piney, minimally resinous in the middle part, slightly mineral, chalky and herbal from the last third on and throughout the finish, caramel malty background. Round and balanced but not exciting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can at home. A clear amber colour with an off-white head (after a fairly lively pour). Sweet, lightly nutty, caramel aroma with a light fustiness and a little sticky dark fruit there too. Medium body, medium carbonation. Tastes similar to aroma - caramel, light rum, a cakey maltiness, light rye bread, some lemon, marmalade too. Its OK, but perhaps mislabelled as an ’American IPA’.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, a long way from home in a Kaufland Romania. Pours hazy chestnut, medium creamy beige head that lasts forever and leaves great lacing. Aroma is strong caramel, bread, pine, spruce. Flavor follows, definitely an aged IPA, but a welcome change of pace here. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Undated unfortunately.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear light amber body with a short-lived off-white head. Nose has piney and resiny notes, along with some caramel and citrus fruits. Taste is nicely bitter, with some sweetness to balance it off. Lots of lingering bitterness on the finish. Carbonation is on the soft side and the palate is medium-rich. A nice decent IPA, well balanced and easy to drink.

Its more sweet than it is bitter, with high noshes of toffee, Aroma has a lot of spice in it. So a mixed bag of things. It’s ok, it’s not making me bursting into a Mexican Wave of appreciation.
