Bottle from cotteridge wines. Damn, another great beer from these dudes! Pours light copper with a thin head. Aroma is fruity hops. Taste is pure American hops, and feels like a fair amount of them. Lots of pineapple and grapefruit coming through with a fair bitter wack. Low carb and quite light but man it packs a punch in the mouth. Very nice.

(Cask at Cock Tavern, Hackney, London, 28 Nov 2014) Reddish amber colour with brief, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with caramel, orange peel, grapefruit and a touch of resin. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, caramel and a generous resiny bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Fresh and tasty with a generous hop presence. Nice one.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Cask at the Cock. It pours lightly hazy amber with a decent beige head. The nose is bitter-sweet, juicy fruits, oily, stewed orange and light toffee. The taste is bitter-sweet, wood, resin, leather, stewed orange, grapefruit, mild astringency and pepper with a dry finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Oily mouth-feel. Quaffable and enjoyable stuff.

Cask at the Cock Tavern. Golden amber. Blimey quite bitter. Oily palate, big grapefruit. Bitterness lingers. Long finish. Pretty good, if not balanced.
