Keg at CBC Clerkenwell during the Second Birthday Celebration - London. Pours clear, deep gold with a creamy white head. Big ripe tropical fruit aroma, light cheese, orange, papaya. Big sweet flavor with more ripe and juicy tropical fruits, mango, papaya, light alcohol punch, sweet bread. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Juicy and fruity to finish, lightly warming, slightly resinous, with pale wood and further notes of mango and papaya. Not the most subtle DIPA out there but pretty tasty.

Keg @ CBC Clerkenwell’s 2nd Birthday Party. The pour’s deep gold with a small head. The nose is herb garden. Grassy meadow. Sharp earth. Hints of sweet syrup. The taste is more earthy hops. Quite bitter, fresh. Quite sugary and sweet. White grape and golden syrup. Full on the palate, somewhat oily. Overall, quite nice, vibrant. Electric Nurse have impressed me thus far.

Bottle at RBESG ’13 Grand Tasting. Pours almost clear orange with a medium off-white head leaving nice lacing. Aroma is not that strong with some fruity hops, pine and quite some caramel. Taste is more fruity with mango, pine, tropical fruits and a medium to heavy bitter finish. A bit on the harsh side.

Bottle at the RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head and a little lace. The aroma is a little hoppy with some malt. The flavour is medium bitter with lots of alcohol liquorice on the palate. A great DIPA and ideal for a session.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled @ RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting. Aroma of ice tea, citrus. Biscuity malt. Quite bitter. Started a bit off, but gets better while drinking. The hops dont really shine, probably because of too much caramelly and toffee malts, or just not enough dryhopping. It lacks the fresh hoppiness, especially with these well known hops. Doesnt smell like that usually.
