Rough day at work? Crack open a Five O’clock Shadow and be at one with your stubble. This American IPA is the real Desperate Dan of the beer world, hoppy uncompromising and goes well with a cow pie. Embrace your inner cowboy. Yee Ha!

Bottle at home, 25th May 2013. Pours quite dark, copper colour. Aroma is pleasant, taste is hop, gritty sweet malt on the finish. Not bad, but would not fill the cellar

Cask @ CPK. Amber pour with a small head. Sweet candy on the nose. Lots of bubblegum, fruit by the foot. Sweet biscuity malts, some toffee and caramel. The taste is tropical fruit salad. A bit of grapefruit, cantaloupe, mango, grassy bitter finish. Light body, soft carbonation. Pleasant.

Are you desperate Dan? I am. I would love to have a hint of a five o’clock shadow but I don’t even get an inkling after a few days. Seriously though, Keith Morris, geezer.

Dark copper with a cream head, quite clear. There is a great tropical aroma. The flavour is mango, grass, pine and melon. There is a bitterness at the back of the tongue and a nice slight sweetness. Great beer.

Keg Friends Of Ham Leeds 01/05/13. A ginger coloured beer with a white head and lace. Rather hoppy and rather fruity with sweetness which doesn’t annoy. Lots of berry like flavour. Malts are not intrusive but give a good body. Candy sugar suggestions. Really good and the keg temperature was far from being too cold.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; slightly hazy copper pour with minimal off white head, piney hop aroma, grapefruit taste some pine, I would estimate 68.97 IBU’s so decent bitter. I’m enjoying this.

Bottle from cotteridge wines. this has a lovely hop aroma on pouring. Very resinous. Pours a dark amber with small white head. Taste is initially light but with a big hop bitterness coming in right after. Hints of spice then are overtaken by a real grapefruity peachy mouth. I enjoyed this the more i drank it. the taste remained in my mouth for a good while after. reminded me of Arbors Yakima valley from a few years back. pretty good id say.
