Cask conditioned at The Old Coffee House, Soho, London. Amber with white head. There is an oily, resinous note to the start of this, a slightly aggressive hop not, bitterness but also a hint of caramel. Pretty reasonable.

Bottle. Golden and fruity. The hoppiness hits you from the start. Medium body with a lot of impact. Good but not as outstanding as I expected.

Keg at the Grove, Huddersfield. Slightly hazy and light. Clean fruity taste with leaves, grapes, perfume, grandma. Bit of weiss beer character to it. Pretty well balanced. Lemony. Pleasant mouthfeels. Pretty solid, slightly unusual take on an IPA.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
September 15, 2014 - at Old Coffee House; handpull. Bubbly yellow pour, decent creamy/bubbly off-white head. The aroma surprised the hell out of me - lush tropical fruit, moderate alcohol, and hints of pine and spruce in behind - my my!! The taste followed - definite sticky icky cannabis resin bitterness jumps up and asserts itself against the solid ripe fruit malt backbone - full-bodied, bitter, surprisingly balanced, with a nice long juicy finish to it. Beer of the day at the pub.

Tap. Tapped, Leeds. Clear, amber colour. Sturdy halo of white head. Very pungent, verging on medicinal, hop. Pine resin, and a hint of smoke. Touch of oily herb. Taste is herby, oily bitter. Malty sweetness just balances out the hoppage. Smooth, full mouthfeel. Finishes, long, lightly smoked bitter.
