Boring UK bitter aroma. Flattish bitter in the mouth, but does have some nice esters in the retronasals. No signs of 6%. A little boring, but a pretty solid british style traditional IPA. Comes together nicely, and is better than any of its components.

Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, some wood, mild earth as well as quite biscuity and bready maltiness to it. Flavour is fruity, floral, wooden, some resiny and mild caramelly and bready notes.
Cask @HBF2015. Clear golden-amber color. Tiny to almost no head. Sweet, caramel, chalky, malty and some fruity notes in aroma. Sweet, grainy, malty, starch and some fruits in taste. Soft carbonation. Mild bitterness. So-so. Hermod (7900) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
Cask@ HBF15. Clear amber, thin white head. Sweet fruity, leather, wood aroma. Flavor has gooseberries, hops, dried fruits. Very dry stuff. Almonds, slightly alcoholic finish. mjs (7410) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2015
(Cask at HBF2015) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness and earth. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, berries, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had berries, fruitiness and bitterness. The berries felt like very foreign here. ALLOVATE (3015) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2015
At just on chilled and into a tulip it goes. Looks good. Healthy, snow-white crown settles at about a half inch and daubs a thin lace. The body is just shy of bright; a deep orange amber in colour with fine carbonation. Floral, honey licked toasted, sweet malt and English hop nose underlied by bready, doughy notes. On the palate it is at first typically English. Bready, toasted malts meet floral, zesty and spicy hops. Length of peppery, softly bitter hops changes it to Noble as it tapers off. Body is big with a mild malt astringency and dryish end. Hops are enjoyable. Not quite a refreshing, quaffable number; sits quite heavy in the stomach. Had elements I loved, and some that didn’t work. Okay, but average. (33cL, 28/04/16, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
