Perfect cask IPA! Hand pumped had a thin white foam and floral green aroma. True to style grapefruit bitterness and pleasantly sticky mouth feel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask handpull, PoW, Hinckley. Bright gold with a slender, draping white foam. Aroma mature cheese, pissy fur, tripel-like Cointreau, stewed green, sweaty pits and mandarin hop. Good marmalade and orange in syrup thickness; warm booze, liquorice hints. Malts steal show in a clean, oily, peanut-like aftertaste. Some balancing biscuit sweetness but overall pretty bitter. Hops demolished a little by syrupy booze. Generally solid EIPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask, gravity at XT Brewery Open day, Saturday 30th November 2013 Warm gold, slight haze, buzzy bitterness, bubbly white head. At once this is crisp green fresh hops but with a persistent buzz, bit like a more gentle Ruination. Fruity, blisteringly hoppy, marvellous. Despite the hoppy onslaught this is actually dangerously drinkable. Big citrussy punch with grapefruit prominent, we’ve missed out on this beer before, so really glad we got to try it today.

Hand pump at Chesterfield Ale House - Nice golden look to this one, thin white head. Nose of tropicals, picked out mango and guava, with a taste that builds on this. Robust syrupy mouthfeel, with a good bitter finish. Best XT I’ve had.
