4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint on-tap at Drygate Brewery, Glasgow, Scotland (£3.90):
Fresh & hoppy with lots of tropical fruits & floral notes initially. A good helping of pine with some background fruits feature too & the beer was lively on the nose.
Cloudy amber to orange with a foamy surafce lacing & some on the sides. A lot of sediment was floating in the middle of the pint & it looked quite thick, almost like bits of hops. Very unusual.
Taste matched aroma well with some hops, followed by some nice pine & tropical fruits plus some floral flavours too. I could detect some peach & apricot around the middle & overall the taste was excellent.
Smooth with a medium body complimented by some faint hints of alcohol & a fresh taste that takes a solid, bitter feel from the hops. Carbonation is lively & the beer is refreshingly easy to drink.
A very nice American style IPA that went down very well indeed. It was heavy on the hops but all the better for it and the fact that it didn’t get off to a great start with the abundance of sediment sitting in the glass was a minor issue once I smelt and tasted the beer. An excellent beer and one that I’ll be on the lookout for again, with any luck I’ll pick a bottle up sometime soon.
