2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle. Aroma is fairly nondescript. Maybe some fruit in there but hard to tell what. Flavour is bigger, with a lovely refreshing citrusy start. It all blends into a decidedly English hop finish though, and for me it doesn’t work. Perhaps it’s true to the original definition of the style, but there’s a reason the American version is so much more popular. Certainly drinkable, but not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle into glass. Golden bronze beer with solid foamy white head. Tiny bubbles, smells sweet and earthy. Light body, oily texture. Finish is bitter lemon. Refreshing, nice beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
From bottle. Cracked the cap and instant foam. After taking the first sip I understand why. Over carbed. The bitterness is within my range. Strangely thick and sweet. Like it wasn’t allowed to ferment out properly or they have added too much corn syrup. No real hoppy aroma noticeable. It’s not real bad but I wouldn’t buy it again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice aroma of resin and hops with a hint of hops. Pours a clear Amber color with a well laced white head. Tastes of resin, hops and fruit, dry feel medium body with a lasting hop finish.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Okay foamy head and gold body. Kind of an odd nut and hop aroma that when put together is really off-putting. Like someone just farted in the bathroom. Flavour is balanced between malt and sharp hoppiness, some hazelnut and crunchy chocolate cookie in there. In terms of IPAs it doesn’t go the distance.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pale amber color, clear liquid, no head. Sour smell. Malty taste but flat bitterness, too light for IPA. Good, but average.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a mixed six pack from this brewery- turning out to be one of the best in BZ. This one is a rich reddish colour. Decently floral aroma. Bitter more than floral flavour. Good. Crystal Toffee malt balance.
