4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From notes. On cask. Pours slightly cloudy orange with a nice foamy off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, pine and floral bitters; some alcohol as well. Flavour is very bitter; noticeable citrus, tangerines and resin, with a sweet malt backbone. Nice cask mouthfeel, slightly astringent, strong alcohol, but quite balanced.

Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper with a nice big sticky white head that leaves good head. Aroma is earthy, caramel, grapefruit, toffee. Flavour is caramel, toffee, toast, earthy, grapefruit, pine and a medium bitterness. I’m guessing harder water would make the hop bitterness pop more but this beer is really smooth!

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy copper with a dense off white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, grapefruit, citrus hops, pine and resin. Taste is caramel, resin, pine, grapefruit and a well balance of hops and bitterness on the flavor that’s never astringent. Great double!
