500ml bottle. Clear, reddish glowing amber colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Piney hop aroma with a herbal touch, caramel malty basis with a touch of almond. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, a touch of almond, marzipan, and toffee, piney hoppy overtones, fruity hints of orange; moderate hoppy, minimally grassy finish. IPA that has its strengths on the malty side.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by Joes. Very hazy orange color, medium to full sized, fairly long lasting white head. Smell lightly malts, hops, some old hops and a bit hayish. Taste malts, hops, again some old hops, slightly a hint of fruity sourness, or maybe not fruity sourness but fruitpeel sour-bitter. Can’t really put my finger on it. Weird. Not a bad beer but not a really good IPA either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber coloured, hazy, quite stable off-white foamy head with a little lace, bready and distinctive herbal to piney hoppy nose; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering herbal-hoppy finish with bready-toasty flavours. Quite OK, surely not earth-shaking…

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops is quite dominant with light sweet malt notes. Taste is dominated by citrusy and grapefruit hoppy notes with some non-descript lightly sweet malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not the most complex or powerful IPA but well brewed for the style with nice showcasing of c-hops.
