Hoppier than a (insert joke here), and bitter as..... Blah,blah, just drink it! This double IPA is brewed with the same grain bill each time and to the same IBU, but the late hops in each versin will be whatever we think will wreak most havoc on your palates.

Hazy deep amber beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Smooth malts, little dry cream. Well integrated smooth bourbon, tangy. Mild vanilla. Good orange and marmalade hops, not super fresh but bringing good fruity flavours. Light semi dry finish. Not quite the knockout of Batch 2 but a tasty and interesting number all the same.

teorn88 (3585) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Backlog rating. Bottle from Mother Kelly’s. It pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is fresh fruity hops with grapefruit, apricots and citrus. Sweet with some notes of wood. Taste is also sweet with huge hops to provide a bitter kick in the finish. More sweet resiny flavour to this one. Body is quite thick with good carbonation. Overall, quite good.
