Clear amber beer, very large and frothy off white head. Good malt base, trace of toffee and a pinch of salt. Pine hops and some faded orange. Are all these Hopshackle IPAs really IPAs - this is yet another that comes over as barleywine and not a great one.

FatPhil (15961) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 26, 2011
Gravicask (Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2010)
Peachy fruity hoppy aromas. Dull orange, small head. Taste echos the the the (thanks for the correction, Anna) aroma. Lots of peachy bitterness, full, succulent, and just a little sweet.

imdownthepub (14440) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest ’10. Amber to gold with white head. American style IPA and yes intensely hoppy, in fact incredibly so. The bitterness is on the tongue stripping side, I felt as though my mouth had been dried out with a hair dryer. Having said that the pleasure is in the flavour delivery from the American hops, playing a tune across the taste buds. They say you need saliva to taste, this proves otherwise.
