Bottle. Hazy golden with a medium sized white head. Pine, lots of citrus, candied fruit and tropical fruits in the nose. Flavor is also hop forward with pine, wood, citrus, light hay and white bread, light alcohol. Medium body, fine carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. The alcohol feels a little, but otherwise very drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Excellent IPA from a microbrewery which is very much on the ascendent.
Sold in 1/3 of a pint at their Cardiff outlet.
Big alcohol content, certainly couldnít have a long session on this!
Hops+++ Citrus. Very bitter.
If íProper Jobí didnít exist this might be my new favourite ale, on 2nd thoughts itís much stronger than íProper Jobí so may need a few more samplings. Needs to get a much more widespread distribution.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - deep orange and cloudy. Nice head.
Nose - resin, earthy, light citrus and toffee.
Taste - more earthiness, then marmalade. A touch of spice.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry and persistent finish.
Overall - not as fruity as many strong ipas but a good balance between sweet and bitter elements.

Pours golden, almost amber. Clear. Aroma is resiny and almost medicinal, liquid hops. Taste is similar, lots of resins. Pine needles and some herbal hops. Aftertaste is quite pleasant, lingering and not too bitter.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Een onbekende brouwer voor mij. De geur is hoppig en wat fruitig (mango), ook moutig. De smaak gaat richting een Imp IPA: hoppig, moutig, fruitig en wat zoetig (de amplification?), maar toch slechts 7,4%, hence de term amplificated IPA. De nasmaak is lekker bitter en wat droog. Lekker, toch net even anders dan de reguliere IPAís en dat is positief!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fresh brew and thatís very import to what they u did here. As it does certainly not carry the cleanliness and is more malty than your average American example, this ipa had to, and does, stand on straight through its fresh hops, giving an aroma that justifies the higher abv. It still isnít as drinkable as a top class American, but itís certainly enjoyable as a slower sipper. Thereís enough character to do with. (33cl bottle from Saveur BiŤre)
