3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Volo (Monday post IPA Challenge). Pours a cloudy orange colour with thin white-ish cap. Aroma is predominantly fruity and grainy with some light herbal charachter. Flavour is also (slightly sour) fruit and grains with floral/herbal hoppiness. Distinctly different from most of the other beers I tried from the Challenge - not necessarily in a good or bad way, just different.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012-04-21. Murky dark orange amber body, small off-white head. 3+ Very leafy hop aroma, green leafy character gains tea like notes as it warms, mild muddle fruit character is pleasant. 6+ Flavour is similar, modest sweet fruity character, green leafy hops with tea like character as in the aroma. 6+ Average plus palate, light carbonation. Your take on this beer will likely hinge on how you like the hop profile, and I did not care for it, particularly the tanniny-tea like quality. Blind Tasting on Cask at Volo IPA Challenge
