3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap in a snifter at their new Grove brewery. I’ve had this excellent double IPA before, not sure why I never rated it. It poured a clear orange amber with deep white foam, long-lasting with lace. Intense aromas and flavours, mainly American hoppy notes but nice caramelly malt base too. Grapefruit, black currant, woodsy, earthy, resiny, pine cones. Medium body and carbonation, well-rounded mouthfeel, lingering multi-layered aftertaste. It doesn’t take long to feel the high alcohol, but it’s otherwise very well-hidden. Very good stuff.
