Garrold (2015) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
750ml swing top bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Clear, dark, orangey gold. Thick, fairly dense, sticky, lasting, off white head. Good looker. Sweet orange hop. Raspberry. Ripe peach. All quite sweet, and luscious. Bit of pine resin in the background. Taste is rich sweet, with a nettle type bitterness creeping in, and lingering. Slick, oily rich palate. Carbonation to match. Finishes quite short bitter. Good stuff, although the slick palate and short finish don’t quite match the aroma and taste. Still very enjoyable, mind.

omhper (20325) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2015
Bottled. Hazy amber, small head. Rich sweaty grapefruit aroma. Mid sweet with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Grapefruit, lychee and resin, some caramel. Really bitter piney finish. While Fyne Ales traditionaal beers are world class, this is more... meh. But then double IPA´s are often just that,,,
