Keg at Mother Kelly’s, London. It pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is citrusy, hoppy, fruity, zesty, with notes of grapefruit skin, herbs, grass, sea salt. Taste is lightly bitter and sweet fruity, with notes of ripe mango, grapefruit, herbs, grass. Finishes dry and quite bitter. Overall, a nice IPA

2014. Pours a hazy orange with rocky head. Nose is musty ipa, a bit of floral hops, dank. Taste matches, a hoppy, dank, dries out, maybe there's some cocoa on the finish. Theres a vegetal/planty thing going on in the taste. This is a good ipa, but the cocoa vegetal note I don't love.

Bottle from a trade with KornWallace, thanks! Pours a deep opaque black with a layer of brown foam on top, a brown head forms whens pouring but disappears. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and roast malt. Taste is chocolate which leads on to a chocolate bitterness with a coffee/roast malt finish. Body is a bit thin but otherwise an awesome chocolate-y beer.

Draft. Maybe the 2nd chestnut beer I have had, these are smoke chestnuts nad the beer in result is kind of 1 dimensional nutty adn smoky, not a bad beer but completely devoid of any complexity.
