3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Brew Box. Slightly hazy gold with a small white head. For the first half of the glass or so, I was having a hard time figuring out why this was called an IPA. I was getting a strong grainy malt character, with just a hint of citrus and minimal bitterness. But then it suddenly opened up - in the flavour at least - with citrus, pineapple, and pine notes bursting out, all lingering nicely on the palate. The aroma is still fairly muted, though, and the body is a bit light and watery. An odd one.
Bottle from brewery. Great tropical fruit aroma. Bready malts in the taste, great bitter and sweet balance. Light tropical notes and a long bitter finish. Terrific. Block Three is nailing the (I)PAs lately.
