Tasted this direct from the cask, gravity dispensed at the Lion, Trellech during their summer beer fest. A great example of a British version of a US West coast Double IPA, loved it, wish I could buy this stuff regularly in Bottle. Well done Otley, more power, - please convert this to the regular line up.

justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Cask at Tap East. Pours a dark amber resembling peaty single-malt, with a white ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Sweet pineapple, grapefruit and grassy pine aroma. It eases itself smoothly over the tongue with a boozy tropical fruit flavour that hits the roof of the mouth before melting into a real tropical fruit caramel on the tongue. Quite an abrupt, slightly dry finish but leaving a wonderful if faint echo of roast pineapple and toffee. Satisfying and delicious.

shoulderbroken (2418) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 11, 2011
On tap at the Southampton Arms. Looks very orange with a small head which lasts the whole way down. Feel like I could taste the alcohol. Taste is quite citrussy, particularly orange with a bit of sherbet in there too. Nice pint.

EdKing (2051) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2011
Half at The Rake. Nice dark amber colour with a thin white head. Nose is pine, with toffee/caramel malt. Taste is pine, resiny with grapefruit really only a minor note. In my opinion the pine coming from the hops is overpowering the fruit a bit. Oily and full bodied in the mouth. Nice toffee malt on the finish.
