3.4/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into an English pub-glass.

A - Pours with a thin head that has no retention. Not too impressive, but the color is nice.

S - Smells like a biscuit with a slight citrusy smell. Very dry smell.

T - Starts off with a spicy, citrusy, earthy hoppy taste. Then gives way to a toffee-like malty sweetness. It is very nicely balanced bitterness to sweetness, but the combination isn't working so great for me.

M - Has a twangy bubbly feeling in the mouth. Not great, not bad.

O - Not a bad beer, but not one for me. I'd have it again if on tap.

3.74/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A- nice head on this medium bodies IPA
M- carbonation is adequate and pleasant, not too fine or heavy CO2
S- definite roasted malt aroma, with a subtle hop after drop
T- the malt seems to overpower the hops, but there is a nice bitterness to the mid and finish points. A sweet malt flavour does dominate
O- drinkable, but not overly memorable

3.68/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Brilliant copper with minimal ivory head. Very sweet caramel malt aroma, slightly nutty. Flavor is overly sweet, very malty, with a fairly bitter and resiny finish. There's a bit of a minerally note. Hop character is bitter dominant. Didn't expect as much malt character, which is pleasant, but the rest is somewhat nondescript.
