Bottle tasted at Oxford Tasting Nov 2012. Pours a deep red, with a nice sticky head. Big hop grapefruit aroma. Caramel and citrus hop flavors play nice together, bitterness up front, finishes long with a thick mouthfeel,. Should age nicely.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a murky deep copper with think tan head that quickly dissipates and some solid lacing. Notes of sweet caramel, burnt toffee, vanilla, citrus, pine, nail polish remover, grain alcohol. Too boozy and slightly astringent for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Samís, Durham, at a recent takeover. Surprisingly light and elegant when sipped alongside the goliath BA 9000, this brew had a massive, bright fruitiness to it that is often obscured in the face-shredding ASA category. Certainly as a red there were substantial sweet malts in there, but the tropical notes and occasional bitter ones were more assertive, to the beerís benefit. Enjoyed it.

Pours an orange red color with a nice creamy tan head. Nose is heavy fruit with some spice and pleasant hoppiness, with the sweetness of raisins and currants. Sweet hoppy taste with heavy fruit and strong complex malts. Taste is lingering fruit, alcohol, and spice. Itís Bells and itís good. Quaff Score 8 / 10
