Bottle. Don’t think that this has been retired. Bronze with a small head. Quite sharp hoppy bitterness. In your face but still quite pleasant to drink.

Not retired it seems. Tap at Cherry Reds, Birmingham. 6.8%. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head and a few bubbles. The aroma is big orange marmalade citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with some sweet notes and a rich, fruity, hop bitter, light alcohol palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

Hazy amber beer which is very lively out of the bottle with an enormous, frothy head. Yeasty, fruity, hoppy scent. Flavour is initially quite mellow. Some tropical fruit, bitter earthy hop and some sharp malty flavour in there too. Not a huge amount of aftertaste but there is a lingering citric bitterness. Good, strong, crisp beer.

6.5% version seems to have been brought out of retirement. Pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Aromas of orchard fruits, citrus, caramel. Taste is more of the same. Good texture, long bitter finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle purchased at Stirchley Wine and Spirits and consumed later that week in Dubai on 27/02/15. Label stated as a rye IPA with an ABV of 6.4%. Cloudy amber colour and light body. Thick white head which quickly disappears. Aroma of apricot and hops. Well carbonated. Dry and bitter taste, which continues on the palate. Some citrus - reminiscent of bitter oranges. Good for an early stage effort from a relatively new brewery but room for improvement.

Bottle picked up from Beer Gonzo, Earlsdon, Coventry, Sunday 9th November 2014 Pours murky amber with a little white film atop. Buzzy citus in mouth, sweet but slightly underipe orangesleaving a fuzzy, furry, pithiness (but sweeter than pithy) across tongue and roof of mouth. I like this its got an ever so slightly rough around the edges quality but. Lovely bitterness, marvellous. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov17. 3.9

23rd October 2014
Persistent slow gusher. Hazy amber beer, big pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and dry, good fine carbonation. Light caramel malts, a little rye spice. Soap! Light marmalade and citrus on the back end as well some emerging malt cream sweetness. Finishes light. Would be good if not for the infected soapy note. Second infected bottle on the trot from this brewer. Not impressed.
