500ml bottle. Pours dark copper with large foamy head. Light aroma with little depth. Nice heavy citrus hops followed by a little toffee malt and a substantial bitterness. Very high carbonation which makes it much harder to drink - very frothy and bloating, which is a shame for this very nice-tasting beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask. Maltings, York. Amber colour. Light haze. Dense, creamy, lasting, milky white head. Huge, juicy, fruity, dank hop. Notes of ripe peach. Melon. Pine resin. Some strawberry. Sweet, toffee malts in the background. Smells fantastic. Taste sets off sweet, getting fruity, resinous bitter. Smooth, hop oily mouthfeel. A bit chewy. Long, resinous, oily bitter finish. Great stuff. Can’t help thinking it’d be a 4.6er if it was kegged, though!

Pours hazy amber with a nice big frothy cream head. Sweet caramel and mango aroma. The taste has fruity mango and pine, especiallly in the bitter finish. Nice full mouthfeel. Good beer.

Fra fat på Piccadilly Tap 15 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Gyldenbrun. Skum langs glasset. Lett ferskenaroma. Smaken det samme. Bra - men vel søt.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask ale, half, shared with Finn while waiting for a train at Piccadilly Tap. Near-clear amber coloured body, covering beige layer, fair lacing. Restrained aromas of caramel, dried fruit and grass. Fruity taste of lemony hops and grapefruit backed by malty sweetness. Dry bitter end with a twist of citrus shells. Fine bodied. Pleasing stuff (Manchester 15.02.2016).

Full of powerful malty flavour. One pint is never enough... Still my favourite strong hopped IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright, slightly cloudy orange with a thin head leaving light lace. Firm malt aroma with tropical hops. Marmaladey bitterness, and a stale/musty component which doesn’t actually detract from the beer that much. Some light hops aromatics peek through, but this is an older example. Still a fine beer.
