UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 Had a sample at the Great World Beer Festival. Big beer here. Strong hop aroma, notes of pine. Taste is lightly tangy and bitter, like grapefruit. Finish is clean. I had another try of this at The Diamond recently and noted: "Fresh, very floral, very sweet. Some caramel, slight grass. Full bodied with average carbonation. Bit of stickiness to finish. Very clean. Solid." I gave it the same rating, 3.8. I like it when I blindly stay consistent.

Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - GBBF 2008. A dark gold to copper coloured beer. A lovely piney, hoppy aroma, which hits you from afar. The beer is very bitter with more great piney hops and a top blast of alcohol. Very full flavoured and tasty.
