COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This complex double India pale ale has an intense citrus and floral hop aroma balanced by a velvety malt body which has been augmented with lactose milk sugar. With this different take on an IPA we have brewed an ale that is both pleasing to drink and, once again, “not normal.” Cheers! 100 IBU 11.0%ABV (used to be 9.5%)

From a bomber, pours hazy gold with pronounced white head which quickly fades. Strong citrus and tropical fruit aromas, balanced with solid malt presence and a mellow mouth feel, is that the milk sugar? It works... Outstanding ... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle via trade with George, shared at Jack’s farewell tasting. It pours clear golden-amber with a large off-white head. The nose is juicy tangerine, orange, passion fruit, sherbet and light pine. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, pine, zesty orange, grapefruit, tangerine, passion fruit, icing sugar and some alcohol with a clean finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. In reality probably a touch sweet for my liking, but it is smooth, tasty and rather easy drinking....

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s in London. Many thanks to Paul. Pours lightly hazy with a bubbly white head. Semi-ripe citrus aroma, a bit of dry pine, tangerine. Medium sweet flavor, lots of dry, bitter pine and straw, orange, mango, light alcohol. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finish is warming and fairly resinous, some sugary citrus, orange, a bit of white bread, nectarine. Quite tasty.

22oz bottle poured into an english pint. Pours a clear rust orange with minimal head. Aroma of light citrus and pine with caramel. Taste is light bitter and medium sweet. Citrus and resinous pine with loads of caramel and toffee on the back end. Full bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long boozy finish. Overall, not bad. Not as good as i was expecting.

Bottle. The pour is a hazy subtle orange. The aroma is big hops. The taste is more hops, very smooth. Don't get much from the milk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a great beer. The further through it you get the more it's complexity reveals itself. One of the best ipa's I've ever had. Full bodied but not overwhelming and the lactose provides some smoother qualities normally found in stouts. Go getem. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden orangish pour with nice white head and some decent lacing. Nose is a citrus bomb. Taste is heavy citrus, sweet malt, and a touch of piney resin. You don't get the lactose sweetness in the taste but you do in the creaminess of the mouthfeel. Decent malt backbone on this. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a light gold color, citrusy aroma, citrusy hop flavor with a sweet malt finish, very drinkable which could be dangerous

Bottle from Matt McCue, Thanks, brother. Pours golden honey color with nice head that leaves minimal lacing. Nose is blood oranges, sweet perfume, and fresh onion grass. first sip is big juicy tropical fruits (especially pineapple and passionfruit), stone fruits. does not taste anywhere near 11.5%. mild lingering orange peal bitterness in the finish. great beer.
