3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Fest2013)
Very nice hoppy fruity aroam. Hazy deep straw, small light head. Rubber taste. After the plastic, the body deos show the aromatic nature of the hops. Some sugary taste too. Finish has more and more hop bitterness with every sip, until the whole mouth throbs with hops. Good IPA, but a little OTT.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask, handpump at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell, London 6th Jan 2012 This would have walked away as beer of the evening if it weren’t for the fact that Tom decided to crack open a Magnum of Gueuze (cheers mate!) Still this beer was utterly wonderful and despite the superb selection on in here, I had two ’Wild Boars’ and would have had more were it not for the fact that it ran out, sometimes something just hits the spot and you don’t want to try anything else and this was that beer this evening after a hard days brewing. Gold in colour moving towards light amber with a slim white head. Juicy, fruity with plenty of hops, I get mango, pineapple along with some sweet citrus fruits such as tangerine and clementine, lovely, lovely beer. A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.2

BC from the brewery. WHAT an aroma; cracked peppercorns, pineapple jelly and whipped cream; pine, Hubba Bubba, blackcurrant, greenery, passion fruit..I dunno. Pours brilliant gold slicked with white. Stewed, densely floral and tropical-accented with big, brazen, perfumed hop flavours..and a peppery lick of booze. Long, balanced finish at once hop-bitter and lingering with malt. Bittersweet, beautiful, blackcurranty stuff.
