@ The Wharf. The aroma is tense maltieness and American citrus hops. Colour is murky copper what looks like hop haze. Flavor is intense citrus and grape with a nice strong maltyness backbone. It is very like Avery Brewing Co’s Maharaja double IPA. A very intense malt and hops beer.

One of my all time favourite beers. Massive hops but superbly balanced, even at a whopping 9.5%abv.

What can only be described as an explosion of flavour! Although unsessionable, I just wanted to sip it all night. A full bodied richness. More like a barley wine but with subtle IPA hops!

Wow. Balance. Mix of the best of the US with the best of British. If only the Americans could get subtlety and the British weren’t so stuffy.

Cask conditioned gravity, White Cliffs BF 08. Even though the Oakham’s was good, this was beer of the festival for me. A genuine English IIPA. Reddy russet colour with very lasting dark beige head. Big PNW grapefruit aroma. Raspberry/strawberry too. Stunningly well balanced. Malts are syrupy, but not too much so. Then this big hit of hop kicks in. Stunning grapefruit hop. I’ve not had an English beer like it.

What a beatiful headbanger!!! If you dont like hops, alcohol or generally flavour please run the other way. This is an exceptionally grand beer. a heavy lemony nose. Dark copper colour and hop hop hoppy in flavour. Deep round palate. yum, yum if you can stand it!!!

[cask at the Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh] Deep, hazy orangey-bronze from the cask pour, nice white head. Aroma of sweet, sticky caramel and resinous hop. Really syrupy on the flavour – perfect on cask, as the resinous hop flavours really come out. It’s like drinking that sticky amber you see running down tree trunks, trapping insects. Yet despite that – and the abv – it’s really very smooth. One of the best beers I’ve had this year, and a real shame it’s now so rare on cask in the UK

As with Ian, recommended by Ian... great beer, and so good. Blind, I would have said, US made. About time that a UK brewer has made a beer this noteworthy. Off to a DIPA fest in an hour, so will compare. And, I know it will favourably.

Cask in Blackfriars. This was a special that Jon boy got in for me on the fly without telling me, had it straight after venting, a day after venting and 2 days after also, amazing the way it has developed. Pours like SN Bigfoot, aroma is bursting with american aroma hops to start with, however as it developes the caramalt shows a big presence, infact by the end you’d have mistaken this for a barley wine easily. Taste is wonderfully balanced, yes its very sweet due to the massive caramalt presence, however the american hops are excellent also, itsa pritty full body, but still dangerously drinkable.This for me is infact an american hoppy barleywine rather than an imp ipa, but either way its such an awsome beer, and im very very happy indeed about the fact i have another 8 gallons of the stuff for tonight.

Bottle from beermerchants.com. Amber-brown pour with a huge off white head that lasts for ages. Very nice, fruity aroma. Quite different to anything i’ve sampled recently. There’s definately some peaches, mangoes, strawberries, pineapple in there. A veritible fruit salad of a nose. Great lacing. Flavours of chocolate, caramel, citrus, summer fruits. Lots of tastes in there that shouldn’t work together but by jiminy they do! Friuty-hoppy mouthfeel. Finishes pleasantly hop heavy with a little sweetness. Very well balanced, well constructed Double IPA. Moor of this please! (sorry).
