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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a taster showing tea brown and a light webbing of foam on top.
The nose shows a very sweet biscuit maltiness.
The palate is lightly carbonated and light bodied. Very malty but only slightly sweet biscuit flavor. A nice lager-like malty bitterness at the finish. Surprisingly, an IPA made in the traditional style, this isn’t bad. I wouldn’t buy another bottle, but it’s done competently. Probably would have been better on cask.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Not really my type of beer, way too bitter. Though I did like how that bitterness coupled with the sort of sour/sweet taste on the tip of your toungue, but that’s a minor plus to a very big negative.

Not overly impressed. Great bottle but sour to my palate. Malt, malt and more malt. Perhaps better fresh from keg
