Norwich Tap House. Dark brown with a small head that quickly disappeared. Tasted like woodland -with pine, earth plus some dark malty cake and coffee. A tad thin with fine carbonation. Didn’t really feel like I was drinking a BIPA, more of a rebellious porter.

One third pint, keg menu at the Hanging Bat. Opaque coal black body, spotty lacing. Dark fruity nose joined by cocoa hints. Red orange and earthy malty flavours. Roasted bitter ending. Semi-dry. Fine bodied, in fact, and good to drink (Edinburgh 08.08.2013).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
August 22, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Craft Beer Co (Brixton). Deep and clear mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma is light nutty roast, a lot of pungent green herbal bitterness and ... Peat? Taste - yep - peat; pungent and quite greenly bitter, for a lighter bodied beer - malty initially, then dry and earthy and pungently coating in the finish. Doesn’t feel fully gelled but very nice at that.

Cask at CBC Clerkenwell. Roasty, hoppy nose, coffee, citrus hop, some chocolate. Dark brown with orange tints and bubbles. Rosty flavor of coffee. A bit thin and light. Earthy, grassy, well bitter finish. Not so much of the IPA character, just a slightly hoppy dry stout. Not so special.
