Cask @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours red-orange with a small, bubbly, off-white head. Fruity aroma, strawberries, melons, caramel and grapes. Low carbonation, okay mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit weaker than expected, light bitterness. Long aftertaste that redeems something, sweet maltiness and light fruitiness.

(Cask) Very hazy reddish brown with a small head. Strong aroma of (straw)berries and aromatic hops. Initially smooth and fruity flavor turns very bitter in the middle, and the finish is fruity again. Medium to full body, low carbonation. A berry-fruity, dangerously drinkable, hop-kicking, pleasant double ipa. Something between the regular IPA and #100, but feels fresher overall - probably since the absence of yeast.
