On tap at Seven Monks in Traverse City. Pours amber with a white head. Citrus and spicy hop aromas. Hoppy citrus, spicy, pine, and floral hop mix in the flavor, biscuit, marijuana hints along with a caramel/butterscotch hints. Very tasty blending of the British hop flavors into the beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from the tap at the 15th annual MBGSF. Named "A Great Big Cluster Fuggle" at the fest. Pours a deep amber orange with a slight haze and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a pretty nice hop note with some light citrus but more grass hops and a hint of a sweet grain backing. Flavor has much more earthy grass notes with a bit of pine a backing earthy grain note making it a bit musty.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange brown pour. Nearly no head. Faint flowery scent. Sweet. Super balanced between ingredients. Slight taste of hops, not much else. DIPA like this don’t do anything for me, would prefer a more hop forward imperial. Next to no aftertaste, left a sweet taste.
