4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the brewery, London. Pours lightly hazy gold with a fine, foamy white head. Well toasted malts in the nose, ripe citrus, hints of smoke, caramel. Huge sweet flavor, tons of fruit sugars, modest ham and smoke, honey, ripe grapefruit and orange, toasty sugars. Full bodiwd with fine carbonatiIon. A touch syrupy. Big resinous finish, mild warmth, plenty more ripe citrus fruits and accompanying sugars, mellow smokey ham. Very interesting stuff. Somewhere between a DIPA and a barley wine, with a hint of some tossed in for good measure. I happen to love it, but a straight-ahead DIPA it is not.
