Cask pint at Volo 2011-02-18. Sammy’s absolutely right - this one is halfway to being a DIPA - reminded me a lot of Flying Monkeys Smashbomb when it’s at its best. Borderline murky orange-amber pour with a solid and long-lasting creamy tan head - lovely for cask. Smells like .... C-hops for days, citrus bitterness and juiciness - hell, this is like a fresh fruit cocktail but with all the hops I like instead of cherries and pear chunks ... although it has tropical fruit character too, and hardly any alcohol. Taste - just the same - fresh citrus and pine resin bitterness, pineapple, mango, just the right amount of alcohol - heck, this is a little brother to a solid damned west coast IPA, no leaf, burnt grain, generic hop oil taste here! Solid mouthfeel, decent carbonation for cask, no booziness, bitter of course, but it starts slow and really builds up - damn this is fine. Ralph, this needs to be on offer all the time!
