bellinghamd (6) - - MAR 4, 2013 does not count
Aroma: subtle: very very light hops Appearance: syruppy amber; dense worn ivory head Taste: Suprisingly three-dimensional given the almost total lack of aroma: exciting mix of salt, sweet, sour and bitter - very strong grapefruit. Palate: medium body; slightly oily texture; lively carbonation disappearing rapidly; quite rough but lasting finish Overall: Very interesting bitter, with three-dimensional qualities which don’t quite hold together for top marks; the after-taste keeps you thinking as it shifts from salt to sweet to sour. Not a social beer as it’s too intriguing in its own right. Aptly titled Pipedream !

Cask at the Red Lion, Isleworth, Bank Holiday Festival, 27th August 2010. Pale amber. Quite hoppy nose. Not quite resiny but getting there. Strange fruitiness - tashi commented that it smelled of black cherry yoghurt. Jam notes too, a bit of bramble. Decently full palate, a bit heavy.
