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.

Bottle. Orange and clear.Hoppy but not overpoweringly so. Medium body and a lingering hoppiness with no lacing.Not as good as most American IPAís that I have tried but still quite pleasant.

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2011
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. No aroma. No real flavour at all, until right at the back of the tongue, when itís glassy, sweet, furniture polish, honey and face screwing alcohol. Harsh on finish. I donít get this at all - what is the point?

After a long journey from my friend wyzzywyz22 in England. Very nice fruity aroma from cloudy amber pour with a fluffy white head. Nice lacing as it goes down. Flavor is quite different with a sweet caramel start followed by a nice hop bang with an alcohol burn especially as it warms. Finishes very dry.

Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton. Poured a hazy bronze colour with a fading white head. Sweet, demerera and ripe fruit aroma with some leafy hop presence. Booze is pretty upfront in the flavour which is compensated for by the overall tasty nature; which whilst caramel malt heavy has enough hop character and fruit to make this a winner.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bright gold, good nicotine-stained head. Vanilla and hops on the nose. Sweet and oakey vanilla flavours abound. Tingly and smooth textured. Good and rich with a hoppy bite.

Cask @ NWAF í14, Derby. Dark gold. Grassy, sweet shop (barley sugar) aroma. Heavenly sweet taste punctuated by alcohol. Nice sticky palette. This is a tasty beer thatíll knock you out and is well worth the state itíll put you in.

Pours cloudy amber with a thick off white head. Smells of hops, and flowers. Tastes fruity, hops, bitter, and grass. Long bitter on the tongue with medium/heavy carbonation. Delicious beer.
