Bottle, thanks to yespr on 30 April 2013. Golden amber colour. Intense floral and grassy hop aroma. Lasting off-white head. Good firm bitterness on the palate to go with the aromatic elements. Not too boozy or sticky but does have a little more residual sweetness than I like.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle pours with an opaque dirty gold body (hop hazed I hope) that supports an off white head. The aroma offers up citrus hoppy goodness mixed with mineral notes and some spicy hops, floral hops and resiny pine. The taste is juicy malt sweetened grapefruit as well as orange and tangerine notes and then moving into slivers of earthy lime, floral hops and pine hops. Behind all of the hops are modest notes of yeastiness and a mineral sensation. Juicy citrusy goodness here. I like it and I really enjoy just about everything from this brewery.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Cloudy yellow body, whipped white head. Pungent oily citrus hop character, some gooseberry, cat pee, resin. The malts here are just sweet enough and offer just enough body to keep this balanced, although it seems absurd to use that term. Can an imperial IPA be poundable? Is it wrong that I lied to Parksy and told him that his beer spilled when he was in the bathroom, but I secretly drank it? I can live with myself.
