Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol 21/8/2014. Copper in colour with a decent, off-white, head. Big, hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pineapple, with some resin and touch of sweetish malts. Flavour had crisp mlats, much more tropical fruit and ended with a dry kick. Excellent.

Nose is pine needles, punchy hop notes, bitter tropicana, spice, orange pith, grapefruit. Taste comprises dankish hops, pine, bitter grapefruit, caramel malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close laced with hop bitterness. Solid stuff, one of the best collabs to date for me.
