Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Batch 53 - Mosaic hops. Pours hazy golden yellow. White creamy frothy head. Aroma is orange, mango, juicy tropical fruit, booze, some residual sugar sweetness, some pine. Bit of malt backbone but the juicy tropical fruit bursts. Flavor is dank hops, orange, some tropical notes, maybe mango, bit of boozy burn. Appropriate mouthfeel for the abv (9.4%). I like it a lot.

Bottle from GBBF 2016 and drunk at home. Clear orange colour lasting cream coloured head. Mosaic hops I think the label said. They bring a lovely tropical fruit to it. It’s a lovely DIPA. Enough malt but not overly sweet, hoppy without being too bitter. Almost easy drinking apart from a little heat on the finish. Lovely mouthfeel. Fresh hops. Really lovely. Top marks. Mango, pineapple grapefruit. Tangerine. Lovely fruits.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strong bubbly carbonation transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy and musty. The sharp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The flavor was rather mild for an Imperial IPA which contained notes of mildly bitter mild dough and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.
