Slightly funky, oakey aroma. Pours with light head, muddy orange. Velvety caramel with prickly edge, nicely balanced. Soft on palate, with a good hint of upper mouth/nasal spice.

Pours hazy brown with thick soapy white head. Spotty lacing. Aromas are balanced heavily on the sweet side for a DIPA. Taste is sweet caramel, grassy, with an oily dough flavor as well. Reminds me more of an American Barleywine.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Colour: Orange Amber with a fine head.
Nose: Fruity, fragrant (citrus, blood orange), floral with a yeasty sweetness
Flavours: Mango sweet start, classic IPA bitterness with a strong hop flavour. Intense and indeed hardcore.
Finish: Bitter, alcoholic and slightly medicinal.
Verdict: Nice, but not quite great in comparision to Raging Bitch. But to be honest, IPA still isn’t my favourite style.

It smells like a fruity pool, tempting you do dive in. Once you taste it you want more. It tastes more like a mead.

Smells like a barley wine, golden blonde appearance, wouldn’t call this an outstanding ale, nothing to go out of your way to get.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2014 I first tried to spare a couple of years ago when i first started to get into craft beer. Back then it was a shock to the system, I rated it 1-3-4-3-(8). Now after trying many craft beers it is time to give it another go. The aroma is amazing fresh hops, citrus, lime, and tropical fruits. It’s a beautiful colour in a glass very little carbonation the whay there is a spot on. A gorgeous sharp bitter taste, sweet and well balanced. Not easy to drink, but just right. A sipper. A real bargain at £1.99 per bottle.
