Jan 2008:

These guys kick ass. Packaged on the 3rd of this month according to the sticker on the 6 pack (thanks for the info!). Picked up at 10 to 9 at the good old liquor board store on 8th St on a Saturday night.

A dark amber, tinged with bronze. Gentle pour barely raised a head over this mildly carbonated ale. No retention or lacings, but this was not a problem with other bottles sampled on this trip.

Biscuit with hints of honey and caramel, and a touch of grapefruit also present in the nose.

Damn tasty. Biscuit and whole grain crusty bread, a touch of honey sweetness and leseer nuances of caramel. Very clean and very deceptive hop bitterness, hint of apricot compliments the grapefruit very nicely.

Somewhere between light and medium bodied. Hops deceptively smooth, yet manage to leave a pleasant tingle on the palate as the bitterness lingers long into the finish with hints of pine resin. Perhaps too well balanced, but then again perhaps not.

Insanely drinkable and sessionable IPA. The clean and deceptive hop bitterness allows for the subtle qualities of this brew to shine through. A good and approachable example of the style, one that would be very easy to enjoy all night long.

Another interesting brew from Paddock Wood. The hops have an interesting way of sneaking up on you. Not as in your face as the American IPA style, but the hops are definately there, and their presence grows as the beer is enjoyed.

Old review:
Appearance
Poured a slightly hazy ale with the colour of reddish copper tinged amber. Nice 1 finger off white head formed on the pour. Thin yet intricate lacings graced this finely carbonated brew.

Aroma
Nice malt aroma of bready, toasted biscuit. Hops present in the nose, but while they have a big presence its not huge. A pleasing, pronounced, floral grassiness, leafy earthiness, and a touch of white grapefruit great the nose.

Taste
Have to say that the hops have an interesting way of subtly building while drinking this ale. The solid, toasty character of the malt backbone is nicely complimented by the hops. Their leafy, green character is mildly resinous, and carries an initially mild white grapefruit bite which seems to gradually build as this ale is enjoyed. Im definately wishing I was lucky enough to have tried the dry hopped cask version of this ale.

Mouthfeel
Well made and well balanced ale. Solid malt backbone nicely balanced and complimented by slightly resinous hops, whose lingering bitterness grows and becomes more apparent as the ale is drank. The fine carbonation is another nice compliment to this light to medium bodied brew.

Drinkability
A very drinkable and very sessionable brew. Would make great session fare and also a great brew for an introduction to hoppier brews. Very nice toasty malts and leafy and slightly resinous hops. Will be looking for this again when I make it west again!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
