Draught @ Beer Temple. Slightly unclear yellow / orange / golden colour, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell malts, hops, resin, pine, a hint of sticky sweetness. Just superb, this is what an Imperial IPA should smell like. Taste malts, hops, resin, pine, slightly alcohol, fruityness, grapefruit and bitter! Light to medium sticky textures, medium to full body, medium carbonation.

Bottle (nice) - dark gold with slim white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, honey maybe. Excellent taste - citrus hops mainly, with touch of floral, nicely dry, good malt backbone. Medium to full bodied, softly carbonated. Nice long bitter finish, touch of late warming alcohol. An excellent DIPA.

Taste: hoppy taste and resin notes. Woody taste and alcohol finish. Aftertaste: resin and caramel with alcohol notes. Maybe it was to late to drink this beer....

On tap at Dexters, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a thin white head and some lacing in the glass, the aroma is of heavy citrus and hop resin with a pine touch as well, the flavor has a nice citrus front end with a pine and hop like finish, smooth mouthfeel, not bad.

Taste comprises orange pith, bitter hoppy wash, grapefruit, mandarina, pine, caramel malt - less so than the aroma dictated.
Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.

Keg at the drygate. Pours clear golden amber, merest white head that appears to be forming into a map of Scotland. I know where I am now at least. Aromas are lemon verbena, floral, light syrup. Taste is light bitter, floral notes, almost perfumed and quite intense. Sweet, syrupy finish. Ok.
