47574xeCD (1132) - Coventry, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2016
Cask at MABFest @ Twisted Barrel Coventry 27/02/16 Poured clear deep gold with white head. Nose is malt, cereal, caramel. Taste is caramel, toffee, dark fruit and malt, slight hop presence in the finish

Towey1989 (2825) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A clear amber colour with thick, medium white head. Aroma of orange, some peach, slight grapefruit, a little pine and subtle rum. Taste of orange marmalade, some grapefruit, slight peach, a little pepper, soft resin, caramel and subtle alcohol. Full bodied but a syrupy texture. A lingering, syrupy, orange marmalade bitterness in the finish. Difficult one to rate, nice flavours, reminiscent of a good imperial IPA but it feels too syrupy and heavy(probably because it’s on cask) Ok but hard work.

johndoughty (5448) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle. Brown with a big head that slowly dissipated. Strong presence of alcohol that subdues any other flavours. Drinkable but a bit crude.

AshtonMcCobb (6604) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - bright orange with a generous head. Actually a bit of a gusher. Nose - sherbet a bit too much, but there are citrus hops in there too. Then light funky. Taste - oranges, actually going into burnt oranges. Palate - medium to full bodied with a tangy texture and a dry but slightly too fizzy, eluding to a wild yeast issue. Overall - is this a barley wine? But there’s a wild yeast issue.

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2015
500ml bottle thanks to Ashton McCobb. Gusher! Pours coat golden with a massive rocky head. Aromas of sherbet, probably a bit of wild yeast. Taste is oranges, marmalade, funk again. Too fizzy. Sweet finish.

imdownthepub (14553) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
