4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Cask P&C, London. It pours a slightly hazy deep golden orange color with nice creamy off-white head. Aroma is hop forward with tropical fruits and peaches over a nice caramely malty backbone. Taste is nicely balanced between the bitter hoppy notes and the sweetness from malt and alcohol. Mango, papaya, violets, grass, caramel, spices, pink peppercorns and a tad of acidity that gives great drinkability to a 10% ABV beer. Mouthfeel is oily with good carbonation. Overall, this would be a nice DIPA in its own merit, but spices and that slight acidity make it unique and amazing.
