It poured a cloudy, orangey amber color. The flavor up front was like Fruity Pebbles, and in the finish you get some hop bitterness and boozy warmth. It had a syrupy mouthfeel. "Freakin’ Unbelievable" is one way to put it...

Piney hoppy dominance on the aroma. Copper in color with clear-white soap-like bubbles. Super malty w buttery finish before the hops kick in, giving a mouth-coating citrus flavor. Notes: On Cask (I think at GBBF? Forget)

5th August 2010. GBBF.
Hazy brown beer. Little suddy tan head. Smooth and fairly lo carbonation palate. Rich caramal malt - slightly syrupy. Piney sweet hops. Sweet pineapple and some subtle citrus. A warming dry finish. Pretty full on IPA - could do with some fresher hop flavours but it’s pretty good.

Cask@GBBF2010. Hazy amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is fruits, wood, alcohol and some rather bready malts. Flavour is grass, fruits, wood, alcohol and some very pleasantly balanced hoppyness.

From cask. Pours cloudy dark orange with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma is caramelish and mild grapefruity. Sweet caramelish, a bit cloying. Quite fruity, citrusy, peachy and dominantly grapefruit. Bitter and sweet finish. Dry into the far finish.

Half of my Dave at GBBF. Hazy amber, no head. Strong sweet leather and flower nose, very artificial smelling, like fake chocolate covered rum-plums. Tastes like honeyed Diesel. Very bitter end. Maybe a tad to strong, my tongue is still peeling.
