[500ml bottle, gift from Jim - cheers!] Amber with a moderate creamy head and moderate fizz. Piney, floral aroma. Creamy, almost cloying mouthfeel. Muted flavour of caramel and earth, with just a hint of tropical fruits. A mouth-numbing dry and hoppy finish. Rather disappointing compared to the IPAs I had yesterday from Chiltern and Lovibonds.

Bottle. Clear deep golden with small off-white head. Flaovur is malt, caramel, little sweet, hops, little bitter, citrus and a little toffee.

(Bottle 5/7-2011) Clear yellow color, creamy taste, no real bitterness, medium sweet. I would not call it an IPA but an APA, it still got American hops.

To me IPAs should have something to say on a given axis but this is too wimpy. Pours almost flat from the bottle, taste is fine but a little too cat-piss and ultimately has a nasty off taste from lack of carbonation.
