2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Quite malty, some nut, smooth and oily texture making it somewhat cloying. Not what I was expecting from an IPA, nor particularly good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hay Wines, Ledbury, Herefordshire. Lightly hazed, pale amber. Bubbly, broken, white head. Aroma is buttered granary bread. Some raspberry. Pithy, grapefruit hoppiness too. Taste is fruity dry, a little toffee sweetness. Fairly oily palate. Bitter, grapefruit finish. Not the hop bomb I expected. Enjoyed this.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Floral, candy-like, oily, resinous, fruity (pineapple, lime, peach). Truly great.
Mouthfeel: Solid and oily. Two thumbs up.
Taste: Very bitter (unripe olives, anyone?) and somewhat astringent, peppery, citrusy. Flavours of darker malt underneath. Very drinkable ( Only 5.5% ABV).
Finish: Bitter and astringent, peppery notes. A tiny touch of honey-like malt. Makes you ask for more.
Overall: A great, tasty session IPA.
