Cask @ OT. Sweet, grainy and highly alcoholic brew with notes of grape fruit and orange cest. Not the best one I’ve had from Salopian.

Appearance - golden with a proportionate head.
Nose - lime and overripe melon.
Taste - more tropical with lime finish. Edging into lime marmalade.
Palate - medium bodied with a big tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish.
Overall - tasty. Would say this was an imperial ipa just.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A murky amber pour with a billowing white head; quite a gentle aroma with some grass from the Saaz hops coming through the citrus from the Citra; the Citra hops dominate the taste though, with a rich sweet grapefruit taste, and a creamy body, perhaps from the barley; the finish is smooth with a lasting grapefruit bitterness, and a pleasant rounded warmth. A subtle and very drinkable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky gold beer with frothy white head. Citrus aromas, and massive pine flavours with citrus in the background. Really good beer, and makes a nice change from hop bomb IPAs. Great stuff.

A bottle via beer52. Always like to see a beer with live yeast. No malt/hop balance just an overpowering hop taste.

On cask at Congress, Longton. Pours amber with off white head. Well hopped but a little too boozy so a little hard work. Decent IPA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Appleyards Deli, Shrewsbury. Murky golden-amber with a thin white head. Good resinous mouthfeel. Pine up front then lots of citrus- sour lemon and grapefruit- followed by some mango and then a dirty, earthy bitterness to finish. Didn’t do it for me at all- I’m quite surprised by the high scores here.
