Nose is deceptively gentle with banana/clove notes and some burnt, candied orange peel. Flavour brings in the powerful hops in spades with pine sap, bubblegum, peppered mango and some cabbage. Finish is intensely dry and achingly moreish. Nice.

Pours a light brown with thick slight head. A mild IPA with a build in the middle with a mild citrusy taste. Smooth very smooth for an IPA.

Smells sweet with grapefruit notes and spruce needles. Pours golden, small white head moderate looking carbonation.
Very hoppy flavour, on the edge of too bitter, grapefruit peel, spruce, slightly floral, burnt caramel. Super hoppy and bitter.
Heavy body, bitter finish, slightly oily, slightly astringent, but very well balanced.
Rock solid, hoppy with body to back it up. Well balanced considering how hoppy it is.

Resinous hops, spruce and citrus are in full force. Clear golden pour great lacing. Nice head. Overall a wonderfully intense and flavorful IIPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours light amber with around a half finger of white head, which leaves behind a fair bit of lacing. Aroma mostly consists of earthy, floral hops, though a malt presence is detectable with notes of honey and some minor fruity characteristics. These are somewhat more pronounced in the taste, with caramel and perhaps cereal notes arising, but still take second billing to that absolutely MASSIVE hop character, which supplies a hefty amount of bitterness on the back end.

Keg from the Sheffield tap. Amber with heavy white lacing. Strong tropical aroma, very inviting. Tastes relatively mild considering the aroma and strength. Huge bitterness after though. Good stuff.

Dark gold. Caramel malt and fresh picked hops on the nose. Taste - fresh resinous hops, tropical fruit, chewy caramel malt. Full body, bitter, tasty.
