3.66/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Nice shade of light amber-copper, thin half-finger head that leaves sparse lacing.

S - Marmalade, heavy citrus and hop earthiness.

T - Again definitely leaning towards the hops with a sweet citrus, caramel sweetness, and a little resin flavor.

MF - Quite nice carbonation, though I'd prefer if there was a little more. There is just slim traces of bubbles edging toward the surface but the liquid still contains a decent amount.

O - A decent IPA, it seems this style is all the rage nowadays with brewery's attempting it with great or less than stellar results. This one has just made it over 'the line'. I'd try it again.

Clear amber with loose eggshell head that leaves the odd trail.
Cut peel marmalade and a bit of yellow cake on the nose.
Jaffa cakes and bit of mango with mild orange hops.
Cointreau finish and tightening linger.
Light to medium, crisp, oily.

This was brewed and bottled for the Belfast Beer Festival at the end of November. I didn't get the fuss then (even on cask) and I still don't now. Round and please premium bitter with a nice dose of EKG, but nothing that should have a hop bine on the label.

Hop mallet, more like.
