On tap at PP C’Bad. Pours deep amber with a thin offwhite head and good lace. Smells very sweet and caramelly malty, slight cereal, not much hops. Tastes malty and sweet up front, very sweet. Hops build after the sip and mimic an alcohol burn in the throat. Medium/full body, good carbonation.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 Boy! You really really need to let this beer warm up to get it’s full explosion of flavor. If you do that, wow! Really fabulous flavorful double. Heavy duty and has that English Thumper personality.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Keg Liquor.
Poured a clear copper color with a average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick dry texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.
This is a very drinkable beer and my expectations where met.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber with a rocky light tan head.
Citrusy aroma but also some sweet caramel malt.
The bitterness on the flavour remind me, at first, of extra strength cough lozenges. Not in a bad way, mind. I swear there are medicinal flavours skulking about that remind me of Fernet Branca.
Thick, caramel malts kick it off with a tinge of sweetness and then the bitterness and all sorts of stuff rolls in. Well, this one won’t be accused of not having body to carry the bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a clear amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma of pine, malt, and fruit. Flavor is malty, pine, citrus, faint sweetness. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with high carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber. Pours a clear copper color that produces a brilliant white head and a load of lacing that coats the glass throughout drinking. Aroma is quite sweet, with lots of candy butterscotch and ripe grapefruit and medium strength hops. Flavor follows suit with a solid malt profile, a touch of apricot and more grapefruit. Finish is dry with medium bitterness. Hops are a bit lacking throughout, and a touch unbalanced. Pretty tasty.

A very nice surprise from Shipyard--much better than their regular beers. This has lots of carmel up front, a dry bitter finish with a smooth alcohol warmth at the end. Very drinkable.
