Poured on tap into a 10 oz. pilsner glass at Barley Brother's. From notes.
Bit of a dark amber brown body with a slight hazy appearance, and some gold dark apricot hues. Head is quite creamy and almost nitrous looking with one finger presented and lots of lacing while finishing.
Nose has a big mushy fruit sense of tropical and herbal notes. Lots of mushy mango, papaya and soft tropical body. It's a bit odd in a way and not very bright though, almost as if it was over ripe rotten hop fruity sensations coming off.
Palate has more of a malt backbone and toned down hop angle. Very dry airy malt, with washing tropical hop softness on the mid palate. Lots of dense cookie and biscuit sensations more like a thick English Bitter. Mouthfeel continues those notes with a very creamy and chewy English Bitter quality. Aftertaste has limited hop flavors and minor aromas of pine and herbal tea. The tropical notes hit matching the nose on first sips but wash away quite quickly.
Overall it's a well made beer but for an IPA even for English it's lacking some hope presence (which some might say and could be argued it's more to style) a bit, but it's quite decent.

A solid sessional IPA that pours copper orange with some decent off-white foam. Aroma is citrus hops, berries, a bit of sourdough, a touch of caramel. Palate is more impressive than the aroma. Citrus (grapefuit, orange), some sweet caramel malt (but much more subdued than many other IPAs), a lingering bitter like green tea ... In fact, the citrus bitter reminds me a bit of a cup of Earl Gray. Resembles its big brother Loki in being smooth and well-balanced between malt and hops, although I notice some batch to batch variation: At times you get the nice fruity cup of tea and at others there is more harsh bitterness with some pine resin/cannabis notes. Perhaps this is an artifact of my palate. Finish is a bit oily and sweet, pleasant. All in all a very drinkable if mellow beer for hopheads and a good "starter IPA" for your beer friends who need a nudge past macrobrews or wheat ales.

A really great intro IPA. It won;t completely satisfy hopheads, but for someone trying to break into the ever difficult style of IPA, this is a wonderful beer to start with.
It delivers everything you'd want in a classic IPA, but without too much hop bitterness, which might scare away some less than adventerous beer drinkers. It's also one of the more sessional IPA's out there, and Paddock Wood is a brewery that everyone should support and keep thier eye's on.

2.7/5 rDev -26.6%
A - Half finger head, good retention.
S - Pine, sweet, hoppy.
T - Bit watery, some hops up front, but not the expected sweetness.
M - Little carbonation, bit too smooth for an IPA.
O - Admittedly I'm not a big fan of English IPA's compared to the hoppier versions this side of the pond. That said, the lingering aftertaste and feel of this beer were not pleasant.

355ml brown bottle with pry-off cap poured in a pint glass. From a "Big Box o Beer" 12 pack mixer with Red Hammer, Loki and London Porter.
Copper-orange and just a little hazy. Cream coloured head is 1/2 inch on the pour and recedes to a few islands with strings of lace down the sides.
Strong scent of hops in the aroma. Mostly citrus and pine. Grapefruit, lemon and pine with a hint of caramel.
Bold hops off the start. Some malty balance through the middle then back to a bitter hop finish of pine. Citrus, malt and caramel blending smoothly in a long lasting piney hop finish.
Medium bodied with minimal carbonation.
One of my go to beers when I can get it. Not outstanding, but very solid and satisfying.
