4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my all time favourite beers. Massive hops but superbly balanced, even at a whopping 9.5%abv.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber color with red shades; small head. Good malty aroma, with a cheesy/yeasty head, and some fruits. Strong body, round, sweet caramel/toffee, fruity hops; but the yeast character quite clashes with the American IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at CPK. Pours a clear, rich amber with a soft, white head. Rich caramel, leaves and pineapple hops in the nose. Damn good flavor, very sweet but backed by the hops as well. Loads of candied sugar, fruits, caramel and toffee, alongside a potent bitterness that is resinous and piney. Full bodied with fine carbonation and quite warming. Finishes sticky and sugary, warming, with hints of booze. The bitterness coats the throat. Nice heat. Overall pretty awesome.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Cask and Kitchen, Pimlico. The colour is cloudy amber with a medium beige head. The nose is of cheese, farmyard, hay, grass and some resin. The taste is cheesy, with varnish, nuts, pineapple, lemon, and grapefruit, ending with some alcohol warmth. Decent enough but found the cheese notes a bit off-putting.
