Bottled The Big Bang Oxford 19/10/13. An orange gold coloured beer with a nice white head. A nicely balanced beer where the hops are strong and fruity and the malts have some sweet berry notes. Very drinkable.

Keg?@FyneFest. Wonderful hoppy aroma. Pale yellow, firm white head, good lace. Light sweet, very hoppy, malty backbone, pretty bitter, perfume, floral. Pretty dry. Very well balanced, very refreshing.

Keg at Brewdog Brum. Very nicely fizzed. Drinkable and highly flavoursome hops. Incredibly bitter. Would have like a Parkin of sweetness to go with that bitterness.

Bit of a disappointment. Big hazy dark amber average head and lacing. Clearly hoppy on the nose but way too malty on the buds. Doesn’t hide its alcohol well enough for me, and there’s just no lightness to it, no refreshing glow.

Very memorable beer. A little on the malty side, but exceedingly well balanced with good hop notes. One of the best beers I’ve had in a long time. Well worth hunting out.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
keg at The Font, Manchester. A subtle hop note leading to a biggish caramel flavour. Doesn’t have the expected punch, more a slow building warmth that creeps up slowly. A clean sparkling gold beer that finishes dry and hangs around on the tongue for a long time. Really good.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Keg @ Earl of Essex 2013/3/26 Initially a horrible musty aroma until swillable, then a nice Crystal malty sweet aroma not dissimilar to US style IPAs but with massive alcohol notes. Very alcoholic taste, some hops, burnt rubber. Astringent. Not pleasant. Glad they serve 1/3 pints here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Green, leafy hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, grass, caramel and pine.
Appearance: Hazy amber body with a thin white head that gradually fades. Lively carbonation. Good lacing.
Taste: Very hoppy - mouth puckeringly bitter. Fruity and slightly peppery with sweet toffee/candy notes.
Palate: Medium body with an oily texture. Nice carbonation fizz.
Overall: A heavily hopped, modern style IPA with lovely hints of candy sweetness.
