Keg @ Hanging Bat [150713]
Dark brown, hazy, bubbly white head that dissipates
Nose of gtapefruit, soft floral undertones, some pine, mellow dark caramel malts underneath, soft dark malts, good citrus fruity hops
Taste of bitter citrus hops, grapefruit pith, sharp citrus, dark caramel malts background, plenty of hops in this
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, bitter fruity tangy zesty grapefruit finish with soft dark roast malt finish, bitter bit dry slightly salty linger. Palate is a little rough
Overall - Decent BIPA, perhaps the palate just needs to be smoother

mR_fr0g (3662) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle at home from cotteridge wines. Arom is realy big bold sweet, sharp lemon rind and piney hops. There is also some fruit salad, mineral and some slight roast. Clearish dark caramel red pour with a steadfast dense light cream head. Flavour is sweet toffee, berry hop, pine. The finish is ashy roast and big piney clean aggressive bitterness. Some slight soapyness. Fine tingling carbonation dryish fiinish. The bitterness is a bit too much for me.
