ctipping (1168) - Florida, USA - APR 4, 2016
375 mL bottle. Red body. Smells intensely acidic. Raspberry. Vinegar. And some chemical aromas like plastic and acetone. Tastes of a pretty pleasant raspberry for one brief moment. Then it turns acetic and vinegary. And then it turns chemical. Really sour. Very difficult to drink. At least the fleeting moment of raspberry is decent.

Level 42 Tasting. Thanks to Mr Bois. Hazy amber beer, untidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and finely crisp. Acid! Glue and acetone. Burning lemon acid lingers on after an unpleasant swallow. God awful!

Scopey (12014) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle shared at level 42. It pours amber - orange with a tiny off-white head. The nose is big, punchy, juicy, tangy raspberry, jammy, Victoria sponge, mild acetone, Bakewell tart and candy. The taste is tart, big tangy action, bracing acidity, tart raspberry, lemon peel, sherbet and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A bit acidic if truth be told. Juicy anyhow, but a touch harsh.
