Wow. Like a Stone Ruination in a kilt. Had no idea something like this could come from somewhere other than California. Picked this up in Seville in a multipack of several other heavy hitters and really enjoyed it. Wonderful head retention and lacing. Pouts a murky orange in my smitten and smells of sweet fruits and pine and grapefruit. Nice and sweet taste. Full bodied and the ABV is well hidden. Overall an excellent UK craft beer and something I will seek out again.

In bocca ha un attacco di malto caramellato, quindi č amara, molto amara, molto persistente. Birra complessa, di gran corpo, carbonazione corretta. Ottima Double IPA.

Tesco bottling. Big robust flavour packed brew, rich heady hoppy aroma, really well balanced for such a high ABV, great stuff!

pours a thick golden orange with a thin white head, hit’s the nose with a heavy maltyness and a good hopping not far behind. taste magnifies the aroma with earthy and citrusy hops being held together with a strong malt backbone, quite impressive.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Smell is sweet and very tropical fruit like, grapefruit and mango mostly. Appearance is amber with a thick head considering the abv. Palate is medium and taste is bitter with a sharp fininsh. A great example of a British Double IPA - comparable to the Punk IPA but kicked up with more flavour and alcohol.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark amber, minimal white head. Aroma: candy, grapefruit, then some peaches. Taste: bitter, very bitter. No subtlety. Fizzy, dry finish, medium body. Bottle past its prime, very hoppy and skunky.
