4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask (gravity dispense), Ealing Beer Festival, May 2006. Clear gold colour. Very pungent herbaceous, juicy, floral hop aroma. US hops are obvious in the big grapefruit rush on the palate. Bags of flavour. Quite sharp and bitter, but backed up by juicy fruit and light biscuity malt. Excellent. Almost APA in character.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Ealing Beer on Broadway, 2006. Clear gold and sparklingly clear. Hop aroma. Sweet, thick malt and plenty of hops to taste. Another hoppy beer from the brewer, this incarnation being quite alcoholic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask@Ealing Beer On Broadway. Liked this one. Sappy/piney orangey hop characters. Slightly sticky (but pleasant) hop characters, yet fairly smooth. Finish is slightly warming and bitter, this is quite close to a true IPA in flavour, quite hoppy indeed.
