3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask conditioned at The Craven Arms, Birmingham. Gold with white head. This proved to be a big, hoppy beer, lots of nasal grapefruity notes, citrus bitterness, lasting and with a slight alcohol burn note. Full on IPA and very decent indeed.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. Minimally milky, dark amber colour with small to average, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Piney, slightly sweaty, resinous, hoppy aroma, biscuity malty background with a nuttily touch, fruity hints of dried apricot. Taste is dry, piney hoppy, nuttily and biscuity malty background, remnants of malt sweetness in homoeopathic dosis, cautious hints of dried apricot; bone-dry, slightly astringent and minimally soapy finish. Nice composition, but could be much better off if the hop flavours left behind a feeling of widening dispersion instead of astringent shortage.

some beers are great in cask or keg, few make the transition to bottle without losing something. Having tried this in both formats, both rock.

Taste of orange peel, grapefruit, melon, some caramel, some resin and honey. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A citrusy bitterness with some sweetness. A balanced IPA with citrusy and malty flavours. Average overall but good bitterness and sweetness......................................... Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, subtle pine, melon, some peach and slight caramel. Taste is similar of grapefruit, orange, melon, slight caramel, resin and some honey. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A lingering, resinous hop bitterness in the finish.
