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.

DanielBrown (3700) - 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 it’s glassy, sweet, furniture polish, honey and face screwing alcohol. Harsh on finish. I don’t get this at all - what is the point?
