DE14

End Point, The IPA (5.6% ABV, can)
Light amber with a thick white head. A well made IPA which combines English traits with American brashness. On the nose, piney hops with an orange citrus edge. The palate offers a typically English IPA taste of marmalade orange notes, but the hop notes have been ramped up, with hints of honeydew melon sweetness and a decent malt base of reminiscent of sweet pancakes one might serve for breakfast. There’s a cracking bitter finish which retains the hop depth well. Really enjoyed this. (11-06-2018)

Flight Suit, Orange Pale Ale (5.1% ABV, can)
Amber with a thick white head. On the nose, there are notes of orange — reminiscent of a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. Quite an assertive orange smell. Quite pithy. That carries through to the palate, with some balancing light biscuit malt. It does what it says on the can: it’s a pale ale with a big orange hit. Decent, but not in the same league as the IPA, End Point. (11-06-2018)
