3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It was a brutally hot day and I was offered this self proclaimed "obnoxious deranged intense" bottle and I thought "it's just too hot for a intense IPA".But what a great beer! Malty on the tongue at first followed by that hoppy middle taste and a smooth finish of hops. It was a nice IPA and not as extreme as advertised

Sampled from the tap at Lucette. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has notes of flora and citrus supported by sweet grains and grass. Flavor combines flora and citrus with some light fruits and sweet grain supporting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is strongly hoppy of grapefruit, mango, pine, some orange and caramel. Taste is similar of grapefruit, mango, orange, pine, resin and balanced with caramel sweetness. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, citrusy hop bitterness in the finish. A nice and simple IPA but o’so tasty. Citrusy, hoppy and slighly sweet. Easy drinking for a 7% beer and so smooth, but not as bitter as it claims though.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer smells of citrus hops, peppery, sprucey pine notes . Color is golden yellow with thin layer of foam which dissipates quickly. As the name implies, the taste of this beer is hop whoopin’ yet enjoyable with hop notes beginning to end. Hop whoopin’ is smooth on the palate with mild pleasant oiliness. Overall, an excellent hop forward IPA.

Draft at stone tap. Literally no aroma but that is made up for by the creamy white nitro head. That’s a really good nitro IPA. Sheet lace. Fantastic brew and best one from O’so I’ve had in memory.
