Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; wow this is a glorious hop medley of a beer pours clear orange with a small white head, great pine hop aroma, the taste is is resiny piney hop with clementine. Great slick mouth feel really impressed with this DIPA up there with USA ones.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a really light yellow colour with a nice frothy white cap. Nose showcases citrus, passionfrut and mango. Punch bowl like fruitiness. Taste has a subtle grapefruit bitterness about it. Hint of saltiness too. Pretty decent stuff. Not for an English ipa!!

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks alright; light for an IPA though (even by English standards). A slightly hazy gold with white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; nicely balanced with pine and citrushop notes. Good on the palate. Solid beer.

On tap. Mostly hazy golden yellow color. Good thin white head, leaves plenty lace. Great, big piney nose, some citrus, light resin. Nice smooth lighter carbonation, kind of crisp, lightly dry finish. Good mild bitter taste, light zesty sweet. Light floral note, mildly perfumey. Great IPA. Probably the best English one I’ve had yet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yellow beer with a hint of orange. Small white head. Medium strong fruity aroma. Medium body. Lots of grassy bitterness. Some roundness and grapy fruitiness in the hops too but not in a similar way than in typical American style IIPA’s. Quite good and very bitter beer but this lacks something that I love in imperial IPA’s. It’s the softness, fullness, roundness and a bit stronger sweetness that I like in this genre. Definitely worth a try though! Very good.
