chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2014
From keg at the Euston Tap on 9 September 2014. Not had this chappie in a while and it was a pleasure to renew acquaintance (note to self: where are my old and more extensive notes?). Really lovely fruity, tropical hop character on the nose. Excellent balance of roast and bitter/grapefruit hop character on the palate. Just as a black IPA should be.

On gravity at the Factoberfest, Tobacco Factory, Bristol September 2012. Near black with a slight, off-white head. Big aroma of citrus fruits, grassy hops, pine and a touch of sweetness. Flavour had plenty of dark fruits and tangerines, a hint of fruit cake and a dry, resinous finish. Excellent.
