4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask gravity, Leicester BF, 08/03/12. Brilliant and pale with a loose head- who gives? Outstanding pissy Citra, humid flowers aroma with dribble-making tropical bubblegum, red apple, melon and fresh apricot. Stewed Darjeeling with biscuit dunks, lime-dappled sweetness, big bag of blackcurranty and Tropical Starburst loveliness. Beer of The Fest. Don’t know if it’s bitter or sweet. Dry out of hops. Went down like the devil in velvet trousers.

Cask handpull at Tap East Stratford. Clear yellow gold colour with thick white head. Aroma of sweaty citra hops. Wow that is hoppy. Creamy mouthfeel. Wow that is hoppy as hell. Good though. My god that is good. All the Oakham easy drinking know how with a hop kick from the devil himself. Seriously bitter on the finish. Thats pretty damn good. Lovely. 4.3/5

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Originally on cask at The George, Croydon. It pours golden yellow, with a decent off-white head. The nose is sweet orange, tangerine, lime, sweaty sock, urine, rhubarb and custard cream sweets and grass. The taste is resin, juicy orange, mango, tangy marmalade, big hop bite, spice, pepper, pine and alcohol warmth, with a big bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Massive flavour and drinkability. The best cask IPA I’ve ever had.... I have now sampled this sucker on numerous occasions and it surprises just how truly brilliant it is. Crisp, flavoursome, well-balanced and eminently drinkable. Wow!

Cask at St Albans beer festival 2011. A golden coloured pour with a small white fluffy head on top. Healthy hoppy, fruity aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit and really quite bitter. Clearly a well made beer but too bitter for my palate, their Dream Catcher is more my kind of thing.
