A full bodied biscuit base and warming alcohol allows the best grounding for the mighty, valley grown; Willamette hop. The self proclaimed king of US aroma. A right cocky hop boasting a full range of flavours with fresh fruity herbal notes, a wooded spice with floral and low earthy notes.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear gold with a tight, off-white cream head. Well now, from the nose Iím not very excited about this one. Itís all tangy berries and a bit of funk, which to me smacks of an infection. Huh, you know what? The beer actually tastes pretty good. Itís like a brett-laced IPA - seriously. The tangy edge is nowhere near lip-puckeringly strong, and really just adds some extra nuance to the beer. Otherwise, itís light to medium sweet with some bitter citrus, grapefruit, hints of pine, berries. Medium bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with mild resinous stickiness, more brett funk, pine needles that have been aging on a basement floor, lightly toasted bread, some further grapefruit, a bit of tangerine. In the end this was a pretty dynamic beer, although I have to doubt the funkiness was unintentional. Having tasted - and enjoyed - the beer overall, Iíll bump the aroma score up a bit as thatís just one piece of this package. Good one.
