4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, courtesy of Giorgio from Yenn B&B in Leuven (great Real Ales fanatic). Pours a very interesting amber, white consistent foam, clear and intense. Fantastic nose of hoppy notes along with BBQ meat, caramel, malts. Mouth: bitterness all around the palate, bitter aftertaste (constant bitterness). Liquor feel (whiskey?), sharp end and very balanced overall taste. A very specific beer, good use of ingredients.

Bottle from Trembling Madness, York. Amber coloured with burnt toffee, orange marmalade and woody flavours, malty notes followed by a zesty, spicy finish. Excellent!

Cask in Craft Islington. Amber in colour, looks like a luscious IPA. Well balanced, sure it’s hoppy but there is some sweetish malt in there too. But lots of hops. I wonder what the six are? I got a nice blend of major hop characteristics without any one (pine/citrus/floral/spice etc) being overly dominant. Oily hop texture, oozes round the mouth. Rather nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home from Battersea Beer Fest. Aroma is sweet caramel, toffe malts, spicy hop with light earthy orange notes. Nice golden orange colour with lasting frothy off white head. Flavour is Caramel orange, biscuity malt, touch of pine, mineral. Stuff berry esters. Quite sweet caramel. Balance is pretty good malt / hops. Low bitterness, slighlty earthy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Bought Feb 2014; BB date March 2014; Drank Feb 2014. Amber in colour. Fruity; tangy citrus grapefruit and orange, hints of tropical fruit. Hoppy; floral, grassy, spicy hops. Malty base; sweet malts and caramel. Moderately bitter citrus fruity hoppy and dry throughout. Liked this. Decent, BUT (with hindsight) presumably NOT particularly fresh and the hops have mellowed out. Certainly a disappointment compared with the stunning Cask Pint of Six Hop which I had at the Cask Pub, Pimlico, London in March 2010. That Cask pint was Mega-Hoppy, fresh and in excellent condition. I would rate the cask pint at 3.8 but this bottle at 3.4. Therefore I have averaged this rate as 3.6. Moral: for hoppy English beers, drink fresh on cask if you can, otherwise avoid short dated bottles.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: strong floral hops, some grass. Appearance: clear medium dark brown, small to medium white head. Taste: light sweet and bitter. Palate: sweets at first intenser, then malty bitters coming up, but not too strong, massive grassy and floral hops again, average-long finish. Overall: atypical IPA, nice, but does not stand out. Bottle from Hogs Back Brewery, Tongham.

330ml bottle at home. Pours dark gold, thin, long-lasting white head. Aromas are tropical fruit, grapefruit, resin, caramel. Sweet malt is the first taste, hops coming through shortly after. Good bitterness, and a mineral, near saline note and the end. Very nice.
