3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: light flowers and resin, light honey. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, hardly any head. Taste: medium sweet, Palate: fizzy carbonation, heavy bitters coming back after initial sweets, intense hips. Overall: not my favourite IIPA, somewhat bland, not complex enough. Pint at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home from ales by mail
dark amber, pillowy beoge head colapses to a lacing. Hot and heavy, sticky malt, pithy bitterness but lacking flavour and aroma (at end of BBE range). Light carbonatio but v full bodied. A struggle

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
500 ml bottle conditioned, a gift from my beerpal Olav. Orange colour with floaties, hardly any head. Strong spicy (weird) and hoppy aroma, also notes of red wine vinegar. Nearly void of carbonation. The flavour has an unpleasant peppery and hoppy bitterness, and not much else. In other words: A fucked up bottle. Drainpour.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at SIBA BeerX - Rich red body, foamy white top. Big citrus nose, grapefruit and tart lemons, expecting a big hop taste which you get. Smooth bitter-sweet grapefruit again, after taste of kumquat and tangerine. Very nice and deceptively dangerous!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg @ The Rake. Pours an auburn colour, mildly carbonated with pithy lemon and orange and an almost medicinal tongue-numbing bitterness. A great double IPA.
