UPDATED: MAR 16, 2014 Re-rated from a fresh bottle. Massive bitter hops, very zingy and hitting the spot a lot more than last time! Crazy good.
330ml bottle from Borough Wines, Hackney. Pours Mahogany brown, alcoholic liquored nose, extremely bitter with a little zest but shying away from any sweetness. Modest carbonation. Probably a little too bitter for me.

Nice red / brown with a deep off white head. Very hoppy and a smooth bitterness. Lots of the usual citrus, floral, and some tropical notes. Good beer!

Cask at the Cock Tavern. It pours red-amber with a small white head. The nose is earth, oily hop, tropical fruits... mango, tangerine and touch of barnyard. The taste is red berry, zesty citrus, red grapefruit, assertive bitterness, resin, varnish and a touch of alcohol with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Pretty delicious! Great brew from this new brewery!

Aroma: High hops, fruity, floral, passion fruit
Appearance: Clear copper body. Medium tan head. Good retention.
Flavour: Medium-high bitterness, medium sweetness, grassy, floral. bready, spicy (nutmeg), lingering bitterness, passion fruit
Palate: Medium-light body, high, creamy carbonation. dry finish.
Overall: Again, the high bitterness is not something I would recommend. I enjoy it, bit not something I would give to a noob.
