Purchased from the brewery recently, coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; bottled on 08/10/2013, BB 08/01/2014, served lightly-chilled in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: pours a murky, dim amber colour, coming with a nicely lasting off-white froth head leaving laces behind, on top of very mild carbonation.
S: upfront comes barley-candy-ish sweetness probably from caramel malts, coupled with a rather settled aroma of pine needles, mild grapefruits and even some hints at tropical fruits; a good swirl gives rise to overripe fruit esters and lightly acidic yeasty notes. Overall, the aroma is quietly pleasant, but not well-structured, under-shadowed by yeastiness, and quite restrained in general.
T: not refreshing enough on the palate, suggesting under-conditioning in the bottle; the flavour is generally moderate, with random acidic-sweet and mixed notes of hawthorn fruits, pines, faint prunes, etc., followed by lightly earthy bitterness and muddy yeasty flavour, while the maltiness only manifests itself in the end of a bit rustic & gristy quality. Alc. hides very well all in all, only giving a belated warming feel when each sip goes down the throat.
M&O: as mentioned above, the mouthfeel is generally softly effervescent from the base beer before bottling I assume, as the bottle doesn't seem to have undergone a sufficient period of secondary fermentation and conditioning afterwards so it renders an interestingly contrasting mouthfeel on the entry and on the palate. All in all, this is a medium-bodied, mixed-flavoured and ill-structured IPA that is somehow victimised by the unfined quality and under-conditioning issue which I’ve come across recently from another Bermondsey-based brewery, The Kernel. Quite drinkable, though.
