3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask pour at the Borefts 12. I have heard great things about this ipa but wanted to try it fresh and not ruin the experience out of a bottle. It was very good but not all I expected from the hype. Aromas and taste were very floral and soily there was some tropical fruits but not as much as I hoped. Taste had some mango, cracker malt, and pine. Body lacked carbonation but it was a cask.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask @ Borefts 2012. Clear bright orange, creamy white head. Nose is chokefull or pine resin, tangerines, mandarins, lychee, damn juicy. Sweet, lots of exotic fruits flavour, mango, orange peel and tangerines, lychee, juice, pine resin in the back. Flat cask body, which is an UK thing of sorts as far as I am concerned but the lovely juicy fruitiness compensates.
