sam_uk93 (72) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2017
Pours a very clear pale amber with a small light head. Aroma is a sweet, piney. Taste is a nice hoppy slight bitterness upfront, leading to a sweet piney middle, finishing with a nice, fairly heavy bitterness that lingers for a good while! Medium bodied, low carbonation. Goes down very smooth, lovely stuff.

Gravicask (StABF2016)

Bold sweet fruity aroma. Gold, brief head. Sweet malty taste, very full in the mouth, definitely niticeably sweet. Tingly bitterness, some almonds too perhaps. Sweet bitterness. I do like the throb it gives the roof of the mouth.

Three Cask Pints at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Oct/Nov 2012 - Very Hoppy; intense hop bitterness; resinous leafy and grassy hops. Fruity; bitter grapefruit and orange. Malty; sweet malt base. Nice hop/fruit/malty balance. Good hop bite. Assertively bitter hoppy citrus fruity throughout. Liked this a lot. Lovely IPA. Terrific Beer! (2012-10 & 11)
