3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, mango, subtle pine and grassy hops. Taste of orange, grapefruit, lemon, some resin, subtle caramel and grassy hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A good, resinous hop bitterness in the finish. The infinity was decent and I like this much more, hoppy and so drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the Beer Emporium, Bristol, Saturday 30th May 2015 consumed in Frank with Lynn and Barry Pours light amber in colour with a white head. Aroma is citrussy but a bit muted. Taste also starts with a little citrus burst but there is a bit of tropicalness going on here as well, but flavours are a little indistinct and wishy-washy. Blue Monkey in a bottle just donít seem anywhere near as good as they do in cask. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Bottle. Mitchellís Wines, Sheffield. Clear, pale amber. Film of sticky, white head. Sweaty, chewy, fusty malts. Big, chewy, orange hop. Big aroma overall. Iíd have guessed at easy 6%. Taste is fruity, orangey sweet. Light dry. Big, pithy, zesty bitter. Full palate. Oily, and zesty bitter finish. Punches well over its weight, this. Not the most refined IPA, but itís chunky and tasty. Very good.

Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours a gold colour with a thin white head. Light earthy veg, with caramel, hint of pineapple, fairly sweet. Medium body, mild carbonation. Slight sourness (might gave been kicking around a while) next to caramel, some marmalade, lemon. Just about OK, but it might be on is last legs and on the turn.
