3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I malty ipa with subdued hop bitterness. A very enjoyable beer but I do prefer more of an American ipa with more up front hop flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 5.4%. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, not citrusy, but earthy, floral. Taste is more of the same, dry hops and roast malts dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Definitely a british style IPA, not cascadey in the sli Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Delicious.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Grains and tea. Gold and no head. Grains and some nice bitterness. I would consider this a nice English bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice peach colour. Nice sweet citrus and honey aromas. Similar malty flavours with a fairly mild hop finish

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep yellow color with a very small, dense white head. Aroma has a mild grassy presence with some light orange citrus and a modest grainy malt presence. Flavor is good but there is a bit of a skunk to it my opinion. Malt is a bit more of a presence than you typically see in an IPA. Body is light and pretty fizzy with some light dryness and a great lacing left on the glass. Overall a decent brew and I understand where the brewer was going. Not a lot of weakness but lacks some of the "umph" to make it an IPA and less of a Pale Ale.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Head that disappears quickly and leaves little to no lace. The aroma is underwhelming as is the aroma, hopping is faint, definintely not what I’m looking for in an IPA. Mouthfeel is nice and carbonation isn’t too prickly. Wont be revisiting this beer again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden amber colour with big initial white head that quickly dissolves into a a light ring around the glass and leaves a little lace up the sides. Aromas of grass, mild citrus, and some british caramel malt. Flavour consists of a moderate bitterness, faint british malts coming through with a touch of biscuit but overall a bit thin on the malts for an english ipa. Though must give props for the 6abv and doing a quite session-able beer out of the norm.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden with a nice frothy white hat. Aroma of some citrus but really grassy & malty. Smells of the fuggle variety. Taste is a little something else surprised that it’s six percent as it’s really thin and could benefit from more hops and a bigger malt profile. Taste is light malts with some bitterness on the finish. Entry Level ipa.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bitter, golden beer with a mild bitterness and hay-like sugary notes. Light bodied. Unremarkable IPA.
