3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Kris Wines, London. Poured a murky orange colour with a small white head. Aroma was piney hop, orange and peach. Flavour was sweet malts, booze and a fair dollop of hop and tropical fruits. Nearly very good, but somehow lacks any real finesse.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 330ml ABM. Batch 0006 Apr 13. Dark murky orange-brown color, small white head. Fruity, alcoholic, resiny bitter aroma, yeasty too. Medium-bodied. Base has lots of caramalt, this is sweet and a bit yeasty DIPA. Fruity-resiny bitterness. Perhaps slightly better on tap? Now I bit too sweet for me.

Big bashy double IPA, sherbet and tropical syrup mega-power kind of thing. Good effort for the team.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bootle from Euston Tap. Batch 19 with citra / pacific gem hops. Unctuous dirty dirty orange. Foamin’ nice. Caramel, cheese, overripe peach on a warm day. Big big hit - this is better than The Kernel’s Double Citra. Gorgeous thick velvet malt and hop kick - zesty, dry, funky as hell. Oh it’s good to back from Greece where the beer made me cry.
