3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz from cask at the brewery. I’m surprised to see this beer rated so highly on this site. I figured this clean, balanced, delicious IPA would just be trashed left and right. The appearance is great: rich, clear gold body with a creamy white head. Genuine hop aroma with citrus and flowers. Malt body is pleasantly crackery. The bitterness is spot on and even for each sip. Nothing explodes in the flavor, but it’s all cohesive. Fairly assertive citrusy hops with a crisp, clean finish. Hogshead is making some expert beers.

(En fût/cask à la source): Des céréales richement protéinées, des houblons gazonnés et herbacés mais surtout une texture indécente.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Golden-amber, light haze. No sparkler on this one. Assertive hop, leafy grapefruit, lemon balm, very appetizing. Yeah, it’s a bit syrupy, no surprise there, but some nice floral and pithy hop notes, too. Finishes a bit too cloying- gotta keep it light for cask- but not bad.
