Keg at smallBAR, Bristol. A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, resin, caramel, some orange, grapefruit, wood, slight liquorice and subtle peppery hops. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, pine, lots of resin and a little wood. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A bittersweet, resinous hop finish. Quite sweet overall but packed full of US resinous hops, very drinkable and tasty. Like a stronger amber ale.

50cl bottle. BBe 12/07/2015 Pours beautifull full orange, with thick white head. Some lacing. Aroma of apples, beautiful bouquet of hops and a decent malt background. Lightly sweet first mouthful and then immediately heavy bitterness. Extremely complex, and saturated. Slightly less than full bodied beer. Stil extremely thick, with pleasant lively carbonation and a dry, rugged texture. After drinking this, I do not want any hoppy brews for a week.
