COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Special;
What started out as a little bit of fun quickly became the favourite of many die hard ale fans and has become permanent. Probably best described stylistically as a Californian IPA, this beer has all the rich malt and fruit flavours of a Barley Wine combined with the hoppy crispness of a Pale Ale. And as best said by one of its biggest fans, "Hoppiness = Happiness."

Bouteille de 660ml bue à Paris chez «À la bière comme à la bière» rue Custine dans le 18ème. Bière dorée avec une belle mousse blanche. Un nez méga houblonné avec des notes de malt pâle. Les effluves d’agrumes (pamplemousse et orange) sont au rendez-vous. Une bouche ferme, amère tout en houblon. Une finale houblonnée avec une amertume franche. Un régal.

Keg at Three Tuns, Bristol. Absolutely belting/blinding etc. The hops are MASSIVE and clean. Beautiful. This chimes like a bell.

jonas (6081) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2013
Tap at Animale, bottom of the barrel, apparently this is the awesome bit. Cloudy golden, amber big head. Nice fruity hop notes, tropical - Amarillo ? Light earthy minerally notes, a hint salt, great fruity hop profile. Fruitsalad finish. Nice

VsXsV (2778) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2013
Draught. Muddy deep amber liquid with small white head. Aroma of mango, toffee, pine, marmalade, tangerine, biscuit, sweet alcohol and dried fruit. Taste is light sweet and medium to high bitter with notes of mango, toffee, candy, caramel and sweet alcohol. A bit husky grainy notes as well. Medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Quite malt driven, not really a favorite.

Mortlach (1253) - Rome, ITALY - APR 30, 2013
30/04/2013 Bibere (tap). Ambrata scarica, torbida, schiuma liquida leggera ma persistente. Al naso sentori di pesca, agrumi ed erbaceo, note di malto ben presenti. In bocca è luppolata decisa, con base di malto ben presente, resina, finale non secchissimo ma discreto, ottima persistenza dell’amaro. Corpo medio, lievemente superiore alle attese, carbonazione corretta. Non male, ma avrei gradito sentire un po’ di "English touch".
