tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle, Christmas gift.
Poured into Tree House glass. Nice white lacing which is long-lasting. Orange colour which is murky and also has evidence of crystal malt. Aroma is soapy and mangoes, some lemons but also sweet and socky. It tastes soapy but the Simcoe notes are good. Nice orange tango and lemons coming through but I think there’s a bit too much crystal for me.
Biscuity malt base from Maris Otter. Pretty clean but it could be better. I think it got hot in travelling or it is badly bottled as it shouldn’t have the sock/soapy elements. Makaveli (34) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle / From Brewery / Norwich / £3ish. Bottled as Double W IPA. Little hazy. Pours with a nice medium sized white head that lasts. I get an unusual sweet piney aroma...almost a little cheesy. Taste is powerful, it contains sweet candy and strong orange/citrus hop. Grumbo (3086) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014

Bottle. Dark golden, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel with some floral - tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light piney hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel - light bread and light tropical fruitiness, some piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel - light bread and light fruitiness, sharp piney - some citrus hoppyness, light alco-hol. IPA with caramel and light bread. Finish has too much alcohol considering the body - also bitterness gets bit sharp/soapy. Geiserich (4530) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 26, 2013
