4.1
zacgillbanks (5726) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2016
Bottle from Booths, Keswick. Very dark brown-black in colour with a thin tan head. It has a rich pine, plum, currants and citrus flavour followed by a malty and smooth chocolate-coffee finish with more pine notes. Very Nice!

2.8
ManVsBeer (11451) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Clear brown coloured with a small off-white head. Quite floral in character, although there’s a few roasted malts in here, however the fusion of both is quite strange. Its tropical fruit is most evident in its nose.

jamesie1857 (1989) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
500ml bottle from Booths in Windermere - Deep mahogany brown body, thin off white head. Nose is thick piney resin, some tart tropical fruits, grapefruit and strong citrus. A bit thin in the body, but the taste is great. Long bitter finish goes on forever, giving the kumquat and spruce flavour a massive boost. I’d struggle to find a supermarket beer as good.

gegwilson (3835) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle from Booths in Ripon. Pours mahogany with a cream head. Sweet, slightly perfumey pine aroma. The taste is pine and spice with a good bitter finish and roasty chocolate malt flavours in the background. Quite light and refreshing. Very tasty.

mike_77 (7369) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2015
Brewed by Hawkshead. Very dark brown with thin lacy head. Strong aroma of fruity and piney hops. Quite a rich and oily feel. Very full flavoured with plenty of hop bitterness up front but with some dark dried fruits to balance. The finish has some roast malt bitterness.

3.7
Garrold (5937) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Clear, dark red. Film, and a few bubbles of beige head. Lots of peachy fruit. Some grapefruit. Blackcurrant. Roast malt behind that. Plenty of liquorice. Taste is soft bitter, with some sweet, to start. Turns a little dry, whilst the bitterness rises. Smooth palate. Soft carbonation. Finishes moderate, lingering bitter. Opened up as it warmed. Tasty and very drinkable.

spacecube (1822) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
500ml bottle, pours deep brown / black with a tan head. Aroma is roasty malt with burnt, light smokey edge, grapefruit and mango zesty hop flavour. Very fresh and good balance, finish is dry and bitter. Body is medium, texture oily, average carbonation. Very tasty BIPA.

3.5
dynamiteninja (1953) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle. Deep mahogany body. Thin tan head. Nose is citrus and roasted malt. Oak wood. Bitter with a dry finish.

3.6
McNeillR (2336) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Solid shady brown, decent laced sandy brown head. Bullish earthy pine, soft brassy juiciness. Initial taste, clean and down the middle. Gummy citrus and bumpy bitterness throughout a gleaming dark malt. Finishes a gleam of windolene lemon that rings out a wee bit too much - little fade on the linger.
