3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml corked bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a massive white head that leaves some nice spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrusy hops with some earthy notes. Taste is dominated by citrus and earthy hop bitterness with some malty sweetness underneath. Medium bodied with abundant carbonation. This is quite a nice india pale ale that was worthy of sampling.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle #1951 to tulip. Unbelievable 5 finger head that is dense at the bottom and foamy with large bubbles on the top. It dissipates at about the rate of two fingers per minute. After a couple of minutes the head aerated and looks like off white pork rinds stuffed into the glass on top of the cloudy, brushed copper elixir. It’s hard to get a sense of the aroma through such a thick head. I’m getting brewed iced tea, watermelon rind, and quomquat, and pinot grigio. Interesting flavor is a bouquet of hops up front. I imagine that this bottle has been on the shelf for a while because th flavors seem a little muted. Even still I can taste the care that was made to add numerous complementary hop varieties to this beer. After that is a thin malt body followed by a moderate Earthy hop bitterness that reminds of dry fill dirt. Palate is moderate. The bottle says this will age for 5 years but I’m guessing it would be best fresh. That said, there are some De Moelen beers want to hold onto and age after several years.

Keg. Cloudy blonde body, thick white head, very light and fluffy. Aroma is a faint waft of yeasty malt, with a slight suggestion of peach and apples. Flavours of sweety candy, pears, some peach, smooth progression into a sour but pleasing bitter finish. The mouthfeel is big, creamy, and lovely.

Wowzer! What a great beer this was. Drank at Birmingham Post Office vaults last weekend, and I highly recommend you go out and try this one.
I got a strong passion fruit/exotic fruit aroma, with a delicate malty background. This one’s all about the american hops and the explosive exotic fruits and citrus fruit taste was amazing. No big harsh hop bitterness either, which I find can often detract from the overall taste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear amber colour with a dense white head on top. Grassy aroma and pinewood present. Also some good amount of citrus hops detected. Flavour is full, fresh and citrussy, like grapefruit. Good hop presence again in the flavour, making it bitter. Good IPA.
