Yep what he said. Too much carbonation kills might what otherwise is a decent beer. Nose is classic mod strong IPA with chunky sweet malts and resin. Fizzy disjoints the palate; some hard ripe malts and hop bitterness but the penetration suffers from the bubbles.

Bottle, 11C. Copper with a huge off-white head. Thumping pine, grapefruit and toffee aroma. A whiff of booze. Rather overcarbonated, better after a few swirls. and after warming a little more. Somewhat sweet spiced toffee, peach; massive pine, grapefruit, kumquat. Very strong bitterness. Rambunctious. They haven’t got the bottle quite sorted on this one, but it’s still pretty good.

Pours amber with a large white head.
Nose shows pine, resionous hops and some sweet clean malt.
Sweet, malty flavours. More pine and resinous hops. Malt overload.
Carbonation is too high.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Well balanced and very flavoursome DIPA. Brownish amber and murky appearance with quite a thick mouthfeel. The aroma and taste are similar and include stone fruit, gooseberry, toffee, and a little bit resinous pine. Hard to pour due to high carbonation but the bubbles are not too aggressive on the palate. Pretty enjoyable beer overall just the flavours are a bit cluttered and do not shine as bright as some more minimal and cleverly designed DIPAs.

On tap at Scratch Bar 090814. Big beer packed full of hops that strip the lining of your mouth. Just like a junkyard dog this beer grabs you and won’t let go.

Caramel colour. Aroma is caramel. Taste is bitter resinous malt. Yuck! Just bitter with some crazy sweetness alongside. Finish is pure resinous bitterness. Overall, not my sort of hop character. Just don’t love any of these guys’ hoppy stuff - tastes like home brew. But their saison, stout and black IPA are great.
