DIPA with massive malt backbone, hopped with Galena, Chinook, Pacific Jade and Simcoe in the kettle, and two dry hop additions to boot! Massive pine-wood aromas up front with a hint of exotic spice in the background. Big bitterness of 132 IBU’s provides a soft, lingering bite, balanced by the 8.5% ABV.

50cl bottle from a trade with beersiveknown, many thanks Steve! Pours clear amber colour with a huge most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of bitter fruity hops, zest, grapefruits and resins. Taste of intense bitter hops, zest, mango, apricot, resinous bitter finish, good stuff!

Leighton (22820) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2015. Thanks! Pours unclear, dark gold with a foamy white head. The nose is heavy with minerals and rindy orange. Bitter and minerally flavor, lightly sweet, with oppressive rind notes, some oily pine, grainy bread. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Resinous finish with more orange rind. OK. Perhaps not as fresh as it could be.

Bottle slpit at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to Steve (BIK), 24/01/14. Lightly hazed orange amber with a moderately appointed off white covering. Nose is pine, earthy hops, candied fruit peel, passionfruit, mandarin, citric sherbets. Taste drops a little for me when contrasted with the nose, caramel malt, touch of pine needle, citric sherbet strokes, orange pith, light tropiciana, mineral wash. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a dose of hop bitterness. Decent easy drinking DIPA but no game changer.

On tap at The Black Sheep, pours a clear amber with a large off-white head. Nose brings a big caramel malt backbone, with lots of citrus and resinous hops. Flavour is impeccably balanced, with loads of resinous hops and just enough caramel malt. It’s a big meaty body, but also blasts hops through to perfection. Wonderfully crafted. Excellent stuff.
