3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours a deep copper color with a large white head. A sweet fruity, yeasty and sugary nose. Low bitterness, but it’s there, caramel, toast, tea, peppery. Something off, perhaps too much age on this, cardboard perhaps. Marmalade. Satisfying despite it not suiting a IPA flavor. Interesting with character. This was 5 months old I believe.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper coloured with a bubbly head. Has a medium to high bitterness but there’s a mix of grain and malts for its aroma and flavours.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taste is fantastic. A perfect taste of English IPA as you can get. Full fruity hop characters, nice and juicy, with a nice malt backing, honey flavours, almost tarty finish. Superb.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber with a big frothy off white head that leaves some lacing. Malty sweet sour smell with some yeast. Clean smooth balanced mouth-feel. A true English IPA that is not over hopped like most American versions. Finishes slightly dry.

Mid amber pour. Hoppy delight. Impressed. I see Danyul taking about SoCal. Wonder if the Family Dog like this?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 0.5l from Edeka Mohr Bonn. Pours copper with a fast vanishing off white head. Medium to low carbonation. Aroma is very malty. Taste is also predominantly malt. There is quite some bitter aftertaste but I really miss the punch from hops. Definitely not my preferred IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Notes of bread, cookies, and cereal. Not too much, but there is definitely more malty sweetness than your typical IPA. Some pepper, and mild bitterness in the finish. Yeasty. Full-bodied for the style.
