Cask Small off-white rim over cognac-coloured beer. Ureum-filled (again) hops, with some quite flowery, fruity or even blossom notes. Even more ureum in the flavour; some creambiscuits as maltbacking and even quite balanced. Vanilla hints as well, and sulphur. Quite slick; long, grapey aftertaste. Again, a very British IPA despite the new world hops.

Bottle. It’s a semi-clear, dark orange-golden beer with a dense, off-white to beige head of finger-thick size. The aroma has a meaty touch, but oranges and green pine cones are pulling the heaviest load. It’s bitter on the palate, with orange peel and pine cones, as well as maltyness in the back. Full-bodied and not too sweet, finishing mostly bitter. A tasteful and pleasant IPA well worth a revisit. 121130

Keg at The Old Coffee Shop. Pours a murky orange/brown with a thin off-white head. Nice aroma. Smoky, sweet, overripe fruits, dark fruit, toffee. Medium to light body, a touch powdery, medium carbonation. It's smoky, toffee, a touch of banana, nice funky overripe tropical fruit, darker fruits, dark sugar and a pleasant earthiness next to a warming hit of booze with a touch of citrus at the end. Fairly mild bitterness. Tasty.

Big red from James. Up front malts that are truly hypnotic. Lovely balanced malt and hop taste. Deep and satisfying. Good dry finish. Hides alcohol well.
