India Pale Ale
Diablo is our flagship IPA, loaded with US hop varieties, dominated by the ‘Citra’ variety. Big tropical flavours & aroma punctuate, mango, lychee & papaya fruits abound, with notes of resinous pine leading to a lasting bitterness. A devilishly good US West Coast inspired IPA.

Garrold (4013) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2015
Bottle. Mr. Pickle, Sheffield. One of those, "Have I really not rated this?" beers. Very hazy gold. Messy white head. Pink grapefruit and nectarine. Clean and fresh. Taste is zingy bitter. Pithy gear. Bit of a pronounced yeasty thing. Finishes long, pithy bitter. Very drinkable, if a little muted on the hoppage.

Smithld1 (177) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle in red lion. Fairly tedious ipa, faintly chemically. Of little ongoing interest. Way behind the game.

NosirIwont (2309) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. 6.0%. Best before 31.05.15. 10 cl. sample. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Decent lacing. Citrus hop aroma, sweet, with a sugary hint. Feels a bit flat though. Tart, fruity note as it warms. Flavour is hoppy, light citrus, and fruity. Dry finish, a bit tart. Lingering bitterness with a dry note. A bit too much carbonation. Overall not bad, but pretty forgettable; middle of the line. 01.05.15.
