2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is malty and sweet, scarcely hoppy, not much like an IPA. It pours a clear, dark golden amber with a respectable, if not too persistent, pale cream head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor is fairly hoppy, but as much malty as hoppy, with a fruity undertone of pear and orange. Smooth texture has average body and fizz, and leaves a malty, slightly fruity, slightly hop bitter finish. Average, but still acceptable.

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
