Cask at Windsor Castle, Lye. Golden, with cream top. Smells real good. It’s a sweet beast to be sure, but the warming, thick, genuinely rich hop flavour comes through and asserts itself. Booming. Some plastic dryness meshed in the finish, but this is excellent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Golden looks with a meek white head. Aroma a tad lacking with some muted hop and caramel. Sweet boozy flavour with some tropical fruit notes. Ok but not quite the phat hop hit I was hoping for.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 16/09/14. A golden coloured beer with a whitish ring of head. Pretty good. Very boozy, fruity and hoppy. Sharp bitterness. Not in your face big like most IIPAs. Almost more like a golden barley wine. Malts merge well. A long finish. I like it. Strong and tasty although the aroma is thin.

Pours a clear, orangey golden color, topped with a decent just slightly off-white head. A very pleasant malty aroma, mild citruses easily picked up. The taste is bittery, develops a more sweet taste later. Some fruity and biscuity notes towards the end and a bit metallic in the aftertaste. Apart from that, very nice.

Bottle B&M Bargains. Sweet syrup dominates everything unfortunately and the big hops are pretty much out of the picture. Metallic characteristics, could almost be a tinned beer. Hope the cask version is a lot better - I assume it is, given the high score.
