The_Osprey (9999) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2018
June 2017 - Can shared at Leighton's. Thanks! As 'Cloudwater IIPA Centetnnial', 9%. Also had a full can at home. Hazy golden yellow, still with a foamy off-white head which leaves dotted lacing. Aroma leads with an almost cheesy vibe, also vanilla. Some plastic and pungent tropical notes, candied orange. I found it a bit odd. Body is smooth or maybe slightly frothy with soft carbonation. Taste is spicy, stones, boozy and quite dry, resinous and with a raspy dryness. (6-4-7-4-15=3.6)

It is great that you don't have to wait in line at breweries in New England to get beer like this anymore. Exactly what you want from a New England DIPA -- juicy, turbid, wildly aromatic, and just a bit bitter. The Centennial is showcased nicely, with a slightly more resin-y Citra. Great stuff -- is Cloudwater making the best beer in Britain right now?

_angst_ (5009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2017
Can courtesy of Linus. Hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Dank nose with grapefruit & moist grass. Slightly sweet, bitter, fruity, grassy & floral. Round, astringent & tiny boozy mouthfeel. Good, but below expectation.

jinroh (2660) - ESTONIA - OCT 13, 2017
Manchester beers tasting at Tokyo Midtown. Hazy yellow, just a hint of foam on the top. Lots of sweet tropics in the nose, ripe mango and melon with papaya. Orange marmelade with hop topping. Taste is marmelade, probably getting a bit old, good nontheless. Switching towards honey and marmelade, fresh would be different but this still gives a good hint of what it was.

TimE (6401) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 13, 2017
Minty lime nose with modest heaviness. Creamy mouth with modest bitterness, heady with honey and marmalade. Modest bitterness in the finish. Nice

Erasmus_ro (3293) - Alabama, USA - SEP 19, 2017
Can, 09/09/17. Aroma is citrus, passionfruit, papaija, slight detergent, conifer. Taste is conifer, caramel, citrus, more caramel, turns slightly herbal, hard fruit candy.

Davros IX (635) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2017
Can at home from the Bishop's Cave. Poured nicely with a lovely golden cloudy appearance. An exceptionally smooth beer with pine, mango and pineapple flavours across the profile. I couldn't detect the alcohol; which was worrying. An exceptionally well made beer that I thoroughly enjoyed.

jmgreenuk (10691) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 13, 2017
Can from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is dry mineral, light barnyard, hop bitter. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a dry, crisp, fresh, big woody alcohol hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

13/20 bitterness overpowers the juicyness. still a nice imperial ipa but prefer it juicier

beeebon (510) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2017
440ml can from Red Elephant Beer Cellar in Truro. Pours a hazy pale golden colour with small white head which doesn't last long but does cling to the top throughout. Aroma is pine, mango, spruce, grapefruit, spruce and some caramel. Taste is medium to strong bitter with some sweetness. Rich foamy texture on the palate and a pleasingly lingering finish. A mighty fine Imperial IPA!
