Cask at GBBF 2010. Deep orange coloured pour with a medium white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Tastes quite bitter, hoppy, fruity, malty. Not the best DIPA that I’ve had but I’d certainly drink it again.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral sopa hop aroma. Gold with a soap bubble-like sudsy head. Light body but nice maltiness; there’s an earthy hop flavor that coats the mouth and lingers.
Notes: On Cask at the GBBF ’10

From cask at GBBF, RB#15000. Pours clear and golden orange with a fully gone head. Aroma is mild herbal and hops fruity. Grapefruity too. Sweet, bitter and peachy. Distinct grapefruity bite into a dry bitter finish. Bonedry finish.

On tap at GBBF ’10. Gold pour with a white head. Pear, peaches, plenty of hops, some caramel in the nose. Herby, spicy flavours with a splash of citrus and caramel. Malty, hoppy finish. Not too bad but expected a little better.
