Hand-pulled. Deep rich amber with a thin white head. A small malty nose with a light hoppy bite to it. Malts threaten to take over in the mouth, but there’s a lovely grapefruit and mango hop biting right through it. Malt finally overcomes and wins the finish though, making it smooth and sippable, rather than light and quaffable. Really nice brew.

Cask, handpump at The Grove, Huddersfield 17.03.12 in company of dad & Barry Good double IPA but for me very much in the style of an American DIPA. Malty up front and a little sweet but though I suggested it is very much American in style I think that is not to be take to literally as it has a very English edge, touch syrupy, thick in the mouth, hoppy but not too much. Good stuff. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Cask at North Bar, Leeds on 4th Fed - launch day for Kirkstall’s 100th brew. Which is this one. Obviously. Anyway, pours a slightly cloudy orangey copper, with a well-retained small head. Aroma is hops, citrus, malt, a touch of caramel. Taste is great - brilliant hop/malt balance with the two tastes blending perfectly. Citrus, pineapple, caramel malt. Perfect beer for cask - a little CO2 prickle, smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied. Good finish as well - bitter at the start balancing out the long sweet aftertaste. Excellent, very impressed.
