3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Clear amber lasting cream head. Hop resiny aroma. Some toffee biscuit sweetness in the mouth. Very smooth in the mouth. Quite hoppy but not over the top. No real burn on the finish. The ABV is hidden well. If I made a DIPA this is how I would want it to turn out, balanced and hoppy but not super hoppy, good biscuit and sweetness in the mouth and good bitterness on the finish. Good

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber. Not much head. Sort of a dull hop aroma - there’s lots in there, but they’re dull. Earthy, but the bitterness is low for the style. The malts, which are slightly caramelly and a little bit earthy, don’t mix well with the hop character... not something I’d get excited about.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper with a good beige head. Aromas of floral and fruit. Fullish body with froth carbonation. It’s quite nutty, and very floral. I don’t get the nutty, but that’s how I’m interpreting it. There’s a lot of flavor. Some citrus rind. Finishes more bitter than sweet. I’d say it’s better than DFH 90M. My mouth is starting to shrink. Really good stuff.
