We pushed our small brewery right to the limit to create this bad boy. We selected half a dozen of our favourite American hops, grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington State, and added bucket loads of each. With twice the hop rate of most of our other beers, it really is very hoppy indeed.

Cask, Ale House, Chelmsford, 22nd May 2015. White lacing. Copper bronze. Typically Yakima profile. Zest oranges, citrus fruit and pine on aroma. Taste is orange zest, orange peel and Clementines. Juicy. At the end-of-the-barrel but still pretty good!

jamestulloch (2049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Murky amber body with a thin white head. Steady lacing. Lots of lacing. Aroma of blood orange, caramelised sugar, earth and grapefruit. Flavour of juicy hops - orange, peach, nettles and pine - with a tangy, honeyed finish. Very easy drinking. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A triumph.

Very blueberry fruity aroma with apricot, pures hazy amber with a very small white head. Looks like cloudy apple juice. Mouthfeel is strikingly thick and sudden bitter and bright orange like flavours soon give way to a lingering bitter graininess and dirty hay with the juice of some yellow fruit spilt unevenly upon’t. The flavour is complex and later leads to a more marmitey essence. There could almost be said to be a bit too much different stuff going on but of course this would be purely down to personal opinon and preference. To me, the flavours seem to clash a bit within itself but what is certain is that this beer is subtantial on many levels. The texture of the liquid itself is reassuringly wholesome and at 7% it doesn’t slip through your brain-veins without effect. More of a pleasant kineasthetic and psychological experience than a straight up flavour sensation but still a winner.

Fashawn (412) - Montesarchio, ITALY - MAR 10, 2015
Flavour had plenty more fruits, with the pineapple and the grapefruits to the fore, balancing with caramalt, and dry at the finish.

gasparino (3) - valmontone, ITALY - MAR 5, 2015 does not count
Bevuta freschissima alla spina, ben spillata con un cappello di schiuma pannosa e persistente color avorio, colore dorato carico leggermente velato al naso è esplosiva, l’aroma di luppolo si sente ad un metro di distanza, note sia erbacee che fruttate ed agrumate, al palato le note maltate fanno capolino ad inizio corsa per poi essere sommerse dai sapori decisi dati dalla imponente luppolatura, ideale per gli Hop addicts! L’amaro del finale è deciso e persistente senza mai essere fastidioso. Grande IPA in stile Yankee!
