4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at The Cock Tavern, Hackney, Saturday 1st March 2013 This was another winner for me from Brodies, this and the raspberry beer were both truly excellent.Pours black but not so black you could see it peeling away to brown at the edges. This was just a cracking IPA, clean, refreshing, crisp with plenty of citrus zipping through and a little layer of roastiness that really added to this, bitter, clean fruity, but so, so easy to drink for the abv, in fact I can hardly believe its 7.4% Great beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask @ ACBF 2012, Moen.
Cuivrée/acajou, col fin beige.
Arôme malté léger avec pointe de houblon citronné, le tout reste dans la lignée d’une black IPA restant plus légère que ne le montre les 7% et conserve néanmoins un profile très anglais dans son approche. Malt pale léger, le tout avec un houblon fruité ajoutant un côté citron et agrumes.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle.
Pours murky brown color with a large, thick off-white head. Aroma has the intense hops and roast malts familiar to most black ipas, pine needles, nice floral notes, some resin and caramel are there too. Lots of citrus fruits, mostly mandarin, on the flavor, roasted dry malts and resiny hops follow. Quite bitter but still somewhat dry palate with a nice refreshing effect. Very nice brew altogether.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of roasted malts, floral hops, blackcurrant and passion fruit. Flavour of strong roasted malts, burnt wood, floral hops, rubber, sweet juiciness and pungent salty licorice. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and rather high carbonation. Finish is very bitter and roasty with surprisingly strong saltiness. Saltiness disturbs, but otherwise a strong black IPA.
