IPA that is super drinkable with a big dry hop character and plenty of malt body. If we could only produce one beer this would be it.

NonOperational (55) - - AUG 31, 2013
The taste initially reminds me of Goose Island IPA with its reassuringly woody resin, but then a soft, grapey, gooseberry fool taste emerges, and is really New Zealandy. The hops have a fantastic leafy, fresh quality (best before 22/1/14). Next, the 7%ness of the malt bill politely makes itself known, with oat & breadcrust. Couldn?t be better balanced. Really a world class IPA.

Pours clear light amber with low white head. Aroma of pine, citrus and grapefruit, passion fruit and light pineapple. Taste is hoppy grapefruit and blood orange bitter, mellow bitter finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

Bottle from Oddbins. (£2.40) Another good beer from Tempest. First, a big - almost overwhelming - sweet hit followed by a touch of bitterness. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

New 330ml Bottle from beerhive (but have drunk many times.) golden Amber, white head. Tropical resin. Sweet, sticky, medium body. Big citrus and grapefruit IPA, bitter finish. Fantastic and great to see the new wee bottles are just as good as ever.

sebletitje (7411) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle sample @ English evening tasting at Malt Attacks, Brussels. Bouteille 50cl, BB 25/07/2015. Petit clin d’œil à Huxley et Bernard Marx ou alors à Shakespeare’s Tempest. Couleur légèrement orangée, col fin blanc crémeux. Arôme offre e suite un bouquet très anglais avec cette impression de foin/fourrage, sorte de cave et venant certainement de la levure. Retrouve le bouquet essentiel d’une ale anglaise au rétro-nasal de houblons nobles anglais. Palais reste pareil à l’arôme. Un côté très anglais tirant sur le Fuggles ou EKG et un léger coté agrumes. Le tout est sec et terreux sur un fini levure prononcé. Malt reste dans un style pâle, Marris. Pour moi, la bouteille, malgré sa date, semble un peu passée.

Bottle. Hazy golden brown with an off white foam. Aromas are floral, woody pine with spiced oranges and traces of banana. Brown sugar with tropical fruit and a solid malt backbone. Flavours are sweet, bready malts with candy sugar. Citrus rind with mixed tropical fruit. Pithy, bitter grapefruit and pine. Some lime with a bready finish. Good.
