3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
16th November 2012
Craft Islington - opening night. Hazy amber beer, little pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish with fine carbonation. Marmalade hops. Mild minerals. A little aniseed alcohol, nothing serious. Dry hop citrus. Not really getting much oak here - a trace of vanilla. Finish is semi dry with a mild bitter linger. Nice beer but I would have liked a bit more barrel.

Big sweet flavour, good bit of juicy citrus, some pale malts, bit of straw. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Mild warmth to finish, lots of sugary citrus, some toasty sugars, good bit of pectin. Quite a nice beverage.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon Tuesday 19th February 2013 consumed at home Tuesday 26th Feb 2013 Pours light amber with a veiled cloud of haze sitting within, head is white and slim. This tastes marvellous, softened by the oak it has a light vanilla edge, the citrussyness of the nose is also blunted a little by this as well. Taste is great, wonderfully citrussy but the oak ageing is marvellous, still it makes me do the ’snake flicky out tongue thing’ with a late double clack, very lemony, very good. In fact I have to say better than the very decent Buxton Wyoming. Dry towards the end, lovely lovely beer. A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.2

Keg at Cask Pub & Kitchen. It pours clear golden yellow with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is pine, resin, orange citrus, tangy marmalade, leaf and spice. The taste is pine, assertive bitterness, varnish, resin, booze, tangerine, orange, marmalade, creaminess and spice with a long warming, bitter finish. A big, boozy bitter beast. A tasty brew indeed.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ The Euston Tap. The pour’s hazy amber with a creamy eggshell white head. The nose is sweet mango and orange peel. Jammy malts, wood, toffee. The taste is sticky sweet tropical fruit salad, some banana and mango smoothie. Oaky booze, some shredded coconut meat. Medium bitterness on the slightly syrupy finish. Fat, sweet body. A touch boozy. Overall, despite the sweetness, this somehow holds it together. Tasty, entertaining stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a slightly hazy amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is typical of a DIPA with a rich, uber hoppy nasal experience! The flavour is something of an extension of the aroma, with the American hops dominating the rich oaky flavour and with that lovely gorgeous dry spicy pepperness on the palate. There’s no fruit. It was murdered by the hops! This really is a super DIPA. Shame it’s only a special.

Bottle. At one time a lot of British micro’s produced run of the mill bitters frequently not very well bottled. How times have changed! This is a powerful beer overflowing with flavour. A combination of hops and fruitiness with a few other flavours thrown in. This could have come from the West Coat of America. Long may the micro revolution continue.
