Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2014, Olympia, London. An orange/amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Hoppy, citrus, pine aroma. Tastes similar, hoppy, citrus, pine, rather bitter and lacking in complexity. I was expecting a lot from this but it didn’t really deliver.

Solid double IPA. Good malty body, with some nice fruity hops, a lot of hops fortunately. They did everything right, but the beer lacks some characteristic touch.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this on tap and I was surprised to see it as a double IPA. Clear brew with a muted but hoppy aroma profile, resinous and is filled with leafy hoppy notes. On the palate it found it a little sticky, bitter and leafy hoppy notes but overall I didn’t think it was overly strong or hoppy like other Double’s. Meh, decent stuff but there are better representations of this style.
