4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at North Bar, Leeds. Pours a slightly murky red-brown-orange, finger of head with nice retention. Aroma is juicy, resinous, grassy HOPS. Many, many hops. Taste is very hoppy too, with a lot of pine and a woody character too. Comes in phases - malt base cones first, balanced out by a big, yet not overly brash hop hit towards the finish. Full body, long finish. ’Tis good.

Lovely. Massive grapefruit nose and taste. Like drinking a big boozy grapefruit... but the booze is subtle. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Corks, Bristol. Deep gold with a slight white head and trace of carbonation. Big, hoppy aroma of tropical fruits, with some orange and slightly sweet malts. Flavour had much more grapefruit and pineapple, biscuits malts and led to a very dry, resinous finish. Excellent.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Light brown, with a creamy, frothy off white head. Pine hops, hay, citrus peel, bready and just plain great. Full bitter flavour, but never astringent. Very smooth. Not neccessarily the most complex DIPA but it doesn’t even need that. So flavourful and easy to drink. Dangerous maybe at this (totally hidden) ABV. Nomnom. (50cl bottle, bit pricy)
