COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and draft.

At 8.5%, its one of the best examples of this style of beer that you are likely to taste. It’s all about the hops & so in addition to the normal hop additions for bittering & late addition we have added to 2 dry hop additions post fermentation to really ram home the message.
The blend of Simcoe, Citra, Amarillo and Centennial hops really give you the full American Double IPA experience – whilst keeping the bitterness very clean and crisp. Hop aromas are one of the first characteristics of a beer that diminish and so it is essential to drink this beer fresh – as close to the bottling time as possible – this is the reason why we put the date that is bottled as well as a best before date. It is available in 330ml and 750ml bottles and also in keg.

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Bottle at home in London. Pours totally clear honey-gold with a dense, frothy white head. The aroma holds crackery pale malts, aged orange peel, pine needles, peach, Medium sweet flavour with more dry, pale bready malts, some marmalade, juicy tangerine, oily pine. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation and oily texture. Finishes with light boozy warmth, mild resin, more jammy citrus, dry biscuits, rindy bitterness, orange. Pretty good stuff overall.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy yellow coloured with a thin white head. It has a sweet pineapple and lemon flavour with tropical fruit flavours and a peppery, earthy, smooth finish. Very Nice!

33cl bottle on 10-Oct-2015. Hazy orange colour with a thin white head. Soft to medium carbonation. Aroma of citrus, pineapple and pine. Flavour of caramel, tropical fruit, sweet malt. A little boozy, but lits of hops. A nice fruity bittersweet finish.

Maris (1587) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 28/7/2015. Pours a cloudy golden with minimal head. The aroma is dense, sweet and fruity. The flavour features caramel malt, sweet stone fruit, a fair bit of honey, followed by a decent hop kick. The texture is slightly creamy and the carbonation relatively soft. Not particularly notable as far as DIPAs go, but very enjoyable none the less.

Sausagedog (15) - Scarborough, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2015
First up, this may not be a fair review, this is 3 months past its use by date. But still amazing aroma, leaping out of the glass. Pineapple, citrus, fruit. Not very carbonated or bitter at all, but may be due to age. Great example of a bi g hitting American style double. Very crisp and clean. Ticks all my boxes, you?ll love it if you love hops and a real piney resin taste. Gets you pissed quick!

planky84 (3429) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle from Oddbins Beer Shop, Blackheath. Hazy orange pour with a white head. Aromas of tangerine, chives, light spice and cucumber. Fresh orange and pineapple flavour. Bags of juicy fruit in there. Long fruity finish. Tasty stuff.

3.8
McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Bright burnt golden, clear enough with a decent white contrasting head. Bright, tinned peachy and caramel sweetness, ropey lime and flashes of dusty mango. Initial taste is merciful sweetness, proper one two of sweet seedy passionfruit and bitter grapefruit with a gummy citrus backbone. Clean, simple and forgiving booziness with decent carbonation and syruppy simple mouthfeel. Finishes clean, cooling limey good times and linger is clean, breathlessly simple.

Bottle, Little Leeds Beer House

Smithld1 (324) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle from utobeer. Born in March last year and I’m drinking it now so presumably not ideal. Fragrant, floral. A bit soapy. Doesn’t feel like 8.5 per cent. Very pleasant. I’m a fan

jmgreenuk (9988) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is citrus, nettle hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big, smooth citrus, woody, light resin, dry pepper spice hop bitter palate and a dry spicy finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A superb DIPA where the alcohol does not dominate for a change.
