3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. Itís ok, itís not making me bursting into a Mexican Wave of appreciation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Blue Glass, Bedford. Amber/copper, decent carbonation with very little head. Heavy malt scent with caramel and papaya overtones. Taste is very malty for an IPA, more a English than American really. Bittersweet taste leads to a sweetish umami finish. Proper stuff, although nowhere near what I was expecting!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darker amber pour than a typical IPA. Beige head. Malty flavors, kind of a one hop pony but not too bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Crystal clear amber pour with a fizzy beige head. Toffee and light hops in the aroma. Flavour is not particularly hoppy for an IPA, but a nice flavour profile and balance. Tastes halfway between an IPA and an ESB. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the Bottle Stop, Bramhall. Poured amber coloured with a thin quickly fading off white head. Aroma is floral hops, some caramel sweetness, faint ginger person. Flavour definitely needs more hops, clearly UK and not USA in style. I didnít find the hops intense and itís a bit too sweet for my liking.
