3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Lovely deep copper in colour with a decent, off-white head. Peach, tangerine and sherbet aroma with some grassy hops. Big, caramel and unripe tropical fruit flavours, with some solid, savoury malts, black pepper and a lingering, dry finish. Unusual.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle, which I really enjoyed
Lively head, good retention, a little lacing.
Decent aroma, but it’s all about that taste.
Some strong IPAs strip your mouth, but this is sophisticated.
Great taste of grapefruit, rich brown sugar.
Bitter and hoppy, but pleasant mouthfeel and warm, happy feelings.

Tap@angle. Orange hazy. Malty. Caramel toffee, orange fruity nose. Med bodied, feels a bit thick on the tongue, sweet, but with balancing bitters. Feels substantial, malty. Like eating it. Bit yeasty dirty green hoppy finish. Ok.
