COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned; Regular. Cask; Regular, but made on a rotational basis.
Based on the recipe for the very popular Momentum IPA but with twice the amount of hops added at all stages - hence the name! It is a golden beer with an aroma of vinous fruit with a hoppy edge. It has a coarse white head and an intense taste of malt, fruit and alcohol with a bitter finish. This beer is conditioned for at least one month before release to allow the complex flavours to develop.

Fin (7278) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2009
Tasted at the brewery (new cask) 23-01-09 and in bottle 25-01-09 The sample that I had at the brewery at 110 IBU’s courtesy of Nigel the brewer was a little more bitter than the bottle currently being consumed. Pours hazy light amber, aroma is lovely old leather and old oak wardrobe (I know that sounds strange but thats what I get) , touch musty but also with fruit and some alcohol. Initially sweet with banana and spices but the bitterness carries this along quite marvellously, lovely warmth from the alcohol, slight numbing across the tongue from the bitterness, sweet malts throughout, quite lovely. Many thanks to Nigel for the sample of this. A8 A3 F9 P4 OV17 4.1

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2008
A Mes rate: gravicask at Peterborough Beer Festival.
Lovely bright gold colour with a good white head. Big and fruity aroma with a fairly high but very enjoyable level of sweetness. Similar flavour but with an unexpected but really interesting hit of whisky. Sweet, candy sugar notes and some really good fruit in the finish. A typical English strong but a very good one.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2009 Cask, Leicester 09. Bright tawny amber slicked with white. Heady apple, sultana and toffee aroma. Slick and smooth with a faint afterglow but no abrasive alcohol, some almond creeping in. Clean and dried fruity with underlying biscuit and discreet herbal noble presence. Good, but not as good as the Historic Porter. 737314. (Bottle conditioned) Dusty orange with a fine white slick. Orange rind and Fruit Salad chew aroma with hints of honey,biscuit and ground coriander. Slick and fruity; marmalade, coriander, red apple,wheat and Fruit salad in the mix. Dusty with spice, yeast and citrus like Belgium. Not the same beer as the one I sampled at Leicester. 374715.
