22 oz. bottle from CelticBrew-thanks, Jim. Light amber/gold body, medium off white head, rings of lace that cling to the glass after each swallow. Lots of aromatic pine, grapefruit zest, and a backdrop of toffee and caramel. Medium body and carbonation, quite resinous, very dry on the palate. Although the malt provides a solid base here, it’s the hops that shine through with a big citrus rind bitterness, and a long, dry finish. A solid double IPA with plenty of hop kick.
12 oz. bottle. Pours clear, golden color, with a big, frothy, white head. The aroma is pine and resin, with some floral notes, tar, and caramel. Sweet at first, with a strong, smooth bitterness. Medium to heavy body, with a creamy, astringent mouthfeel. Solid, and clearly well made, but not my favorite. spacecube (1705) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2017
355ml bottle, pours hazy bronze gold, small white head. Aroma is piney resin hop, grapefruit, apricot and hop spice. Medium body, oily texture, syrup caramel with good balance from the heavy hopping. Finish is long and bitter with a little spice. OsuStu (262) - - MAY 10, 2017

8%ABV. Double IPA.
Nose is spicy with scallion, grapefruit peel and pine.
Palate is hop forward. Malts are clear, sweet and light. Full bodied. Hops are resin, bitter melon, oleander sap. Overall, the palate for me was dichotomous and balanced on 2 separate but equal tracks as opposed to the palate on Stigbergets Beer Week 2016, another excellent IPA I had recently.
Lingers with bitter melon at the back of the throat and tongue.
