COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
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.

IlGagario (108) - Modena, ITALY - MAY 9, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore oro scuro, da vetrato a opalescente. Bella testa bianco avorio, da soapy a cremosa/pannosa, di buona persistenza. Naso etilico di lievito, agrumi crespi, frutta tropicale più mascherata. Carbonazione flat. Aroma etilico, citrico, di lievito, agrumi crespi con la loro scorza, luppolo fruttato crespo, resina, uva e percezione di marmellata. Gusto amaro da medio a pieno, con leggera dolcezza etilica. Corpo da più che medio a pieno, trama oleosa abbastanza grassa. Finale nettamente amaro, ruvido, con bocca pulita. Alcool parecchio presente, che sacrifica un po’ gli elementi aromatici. Comunque ottimo l’IPA punch e la solidità, con una generale sensazione di buonissima qualità. Siamo di fronte ad una ottima IPA, concreta e di collaudata fattura.

nihtila (2655) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2016
Keg at The Hanging Bat. Pours murky orange. Aroma is rather light, red fruits, hops, passionfruit. Taste is sweet, a bit boozy, fruits, sweet caramel, grass, citrus. Ok but seems slightly unbalanced and almost like that not all went perfectly ok.

gegwilson (2853) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle as a birthday gift from the parents. Cheers! A hazy amber colour with a frothy off white head. The aroma is fairly hoppy with slightly musty grapefruit. The taste is spicy with grapefruit, mango, gooseberry and quite a bit of caramel underlying. Quite full flavoured and tasty.

jercraigs (9439) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
2015-09-20. Hazy dark orange amber body with a nice creamy off-white head and lace. 3++ Aroma of fruity hops, light hop resin, citrus, more fruit that I can’t put a name to right now but it is rather pleasant. 7+ Flavour is moderately bitter, it has a good amount of sweet malt at the core but loads of citrusy hops, whisper of green hops and something I can’t quite put my finger on, some other fruit notes. Alcohol is very restrained and mostly obscured by the growing bitterness. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. Dangerously drinkable at 7%. Does not improve performance at video games. Bottle at Kongs, Bristol.

SanDiego1 (42) - ITALY - SEP 18, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore ramato, leggermente velata, schiuma fine, pannosa e persistente. Aroma di frutta rossa, arancia pompelmo, lievemente scarichi. Al palato corpo maltato, caramello che poi vira sul territorio amaro fruttato e lievemente terroso

imdownthepub (12792) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Keg at The Norwich Tap House, Norwich. Hazy gold with white head. This proved to be a particularly hoppy beer, dry and full on the palate. There is a citric, then tropical fruit character, drying bitterness, very fresh tasting. Enjoyable beer.
