Clear golden color with a fine white head. This one had a strange phenol aroma at start. Thank god it vanished after a while. Otherwise this would have been undrinkable. Malty, citric and fruity ale. Medium body and a soft to average carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness.
[On tap at Drygate in Glasgow, Scotland]

Bottle. Bought at Tesco, St. Andrews. What an aroma! Exudes fantastic hoppy whiffs and the aroma is fruity, hoppy and even some spice. A well-composed and very drinkable IPA. Very good,

Keg at Henry’s Cellar Bar, Edinburgh. Pretty boring, honestly. From memory out of a bottle I had a couple years ago it was "OK", but was actually still disappointed by this. Bready, soft, grassy, not ’fruity’ or ’new world’ in any way. Hugely forgettable. Basic and in no way offensive. Tasted like beer.

mR_fr0g (6536) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear golden/ light orange coloured pour with big off white frothy white head. Aroma is grassy grapefruit skin, lime, metalic, biscuity malts. Flavour is composed of grainy biscuity malts, grassy citrus, leaves, little metalic in the finish. Palate is medium light bodies, grainy, little hop resin on the tongue. Assertive slightly rough grassy bitterness. Good UK IPA.

Aroma: some fruitiness, light floral hops, some sweet oranges. Appearance: clear gold, small, creamy head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, floral hops, some grapefruit, grass. Overall: OK for an English-style IPA, light, quite floral palate. Pint at the Devil’s Advocate, Edinburgh.

Nothing earth shattering but it’s perfectly pleasant and available in Chamonix (Cha Cha Cha), a town sadly lacking in nice beers.

This can be the worst one this summer. Aroma? Nope! Smell. And it smells pretty damm bad. Tastes even worse. Roasted dishcloth aged in aluminum barrel for 12 years. Terrible. Yuck!
