Based on the recipe for the very popular Momentum IPA but with twice the amount of hops added at all stages - hence the name! It is a golden beer with an aroma of vinous fruit with a hoppy edge. It has a coarse white head and an intense taste of malt, fruit and alcohol with a bitter finish. This beer is conditioned for at least one month before release to allow the complex flavours to develop.

Clear gold beer, tidy white head. Honey malt nose. Softish dry palate. Minerally soft malt, sweetish orange, trace of honey. Turns pretty creamy with a whisper of peach. Finishes soft and dry but with a trailing carbonated sting. Nice beer, needs to warm up from the fridge to get the best of it.

Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle with Nick. Pours cloudy gold with a soft, white head. Aroma holds some doughy malts and juicy hops. Fairly sweet flavor, good bit of bread and cereal, some light grass, slight herbals. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Warm finish, heavy malts, some faint pine, white sugar. Not bad.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 26, 2015
Gravicask (CWAF2015) (7:4:7+:4:15=3.7+)
Sweet and fruity, packed full of esters. Super drinkability, even though the malts are chewy and toffee-ey. Delicious bitter resins in the finish. Very complex - want more!

imdownthepub (14554) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2009
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’09. Bronze with white head. Sweetness and nasal alcohol predominate this big beer, there is a vanilla, custard cream biscuit flavour to the beer with a cidery alcohol banging in. Some oakwood notes, almost barrel like. Sturdy beer.
