Cask gravity at GBBF 2015. It pours lightly hazy orange - amber with a decent bubbly white head.

The taste is bitter, grassy, earthy, stickiness, oily hops, varnish, pine, resin, pepper, dank hoppage, light herbal and grapefruit rind with a dry, peppery finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Flavoursome and rather drinkable. Good one.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 2015 batch. Pours a hazy honey-gold with a dense cap of off-white foam. Aroma is, obviously, dank, with guava, grass, grapefruit peel and weed blending into one. The flavor’s less complex and more straightforwardly bitter, blending grapefruit pith with a splash of honey before a clean, balanced yet slightly weak finish. Slick medium body; mild CO2. Decent, but I much prefer La Cumbre’s Elevated to this.

Draft. Mildly wet, dank (duh) aroma. Slightly cloudy. Flavors are kind of mocha-y, with hazelnuts, toffee and a hint of caramel. Smooth, balanced, considered. Tasted on July 18.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
First wiff of this batch is catty, lemon and floral background. This batch is much lighter than previous batches of dank. Nice hoppy burst to the tongue with a balanced malt body. Excellent

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery Sat 5/22, Irish pint glass. Pours dark amber-red. Smells of wet earthy hops, some vegetable. Soft hop character, earthy/wet, rounded. Not crazy bitter on the back which is nice for an earthy IPA.
