3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Birmingham Beer Bash 2013. Poured a hazy chesnut brown colour with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma is rich red berry fruit leading to a medium to strong bitter flavour with lots of spice, pepper and liqourice on the super smooth palate. A great DIPA I must say.

Gravity, Leicester BF, 22/03/13. Misted red-copper topped with cream froth. Juicy tropical chew nose suggesting melon, papaya, strawberry chew. Bitter husky nut backing behind soapy floral hop. Back of tongue linger. Hints of well done sausage. Good. But not too good for The Trough with a bus to catch..

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Craft Beer Rising. It pours hazy deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is pungent hop, farmyard, urine, citrus and earth. The taste is resinous, oily hop, earth, assertive bitterness, pithy citrus, salty wood and sherbet with a big bitter finish.Medium body, soft carbonation and slightly cloying mouth-feel. Big, brash and bitter...but definitely not elegent.
