3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma is dry pine hops with a hint of oak and passion fruit. Very faint hint of funk/Brett. Taste is more barley wine with good carbonation rather tag hoppy ipa. I expected more. Good carbonation for the ABV and great mouth feel for an IPA. There is a hint of tropical fruit with dry, semi bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nose is pleasant but muted for the style: malt, marmalade, honey, booze, gentle tropical fruits. Taste is marmalade, pine, leading to pineapple, hints of lychee, tropical juice, then a bone dry resin finish. Moutfeel is slick.
It’s a very nice beer, but such is the volume of high quality DIPA in the North of England in 2016, it doesn’t have the impact it would have had, had I drank it 5 years ago.

A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt, fish, and petroleum. The flavor is sweet with notes of lemons, over ripe fruits, yeast, and grass, leading to a dry finish.

Pours hazy golden yellow with a big white head. Massive tropical fruit aromas that follow through to the taste, along with resinous pine, caramel malt... assertive bitterness, not too sweet. Fantastic beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg @ 57 Thomas St, Manchester. Dangerous stuff for its strength, as it’s very fruity and hides much of the aforementioned in its tropical fruit flavours. Pale orange in colour with a thin head, you can feel the alcohol on your breath in its aftertaste. Has lots of tropical fruit aromas.
