Nice sticky resinous nose, with a touch of cotton candy. Taste is lightly sweetand fairly bitter with lots of sticky hops, pine and citrus, some darkness and light golden fruit. Finishes with sweet honey and pithy bitterness.

Right as you pour it you can smell the fruity aroma. Comes with a bit of pine, and lemon zest. Dark ginger colored and clear like a west coast ipa. Bubbles fizz fast to the top and clears out quickly. White head with inconsistent sized bubbles. Palate comes with a light-medium texture. Taste of citrus, grapefruit, hops, pine, biscuit, some sweetness that gets cut with a dry bitter hop finish. Even though it leaves the mouth dry, it's oddly thirst quenching that makes me keep grabbing the glass.

Sampled at UCBC Wolpertinger 2018 - It pours orangish yellow with a white head. The aroma has pineapple, grapefruit and dry malt. It has a medium body with soft carbonation. The taste has smooth malt, pine and zest. Lots of balance going on here, especially for something listed as 100 IBUs.

GBBF Day 2. Cask. Lightly hazy gold beer, small white head. Palate is smooth, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Smooth malts, lightly sweet. Tangy citrus and tangy orange peel. Little hop spice. Trace of pine. Light finish. Tidy if unspectacular.

TH28 (495) - - AUG 25, 2017
16oz can. 7/4/17 can date. Appearance: Deep golden orange, mostly clear with a light haze, and a moderate thick foam head and decent lacing. Aroma: Dank, resinous, grassy hop aroma dominates, with a touch of grapefruit pulp and toasted malt. Taste: Bready, caramel maltiness with a touch of toast turns spicy and grassy resin and a strong bitter finish with some grapefruit. Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy bodied for the style, with a moderate carbonation. Finish: Dry, sticky resinous bitterness remains on the tongue long after the swallow. Touch of toasted malt comes back retronasally. Overall: Well made take on a true traditional American IPA. Has the resinous grapefruit character against a strong malt base that brings the body and balance of a traditional AIPA as opposed to West Coast

Clear copper pour with nice big white head. Good nose of citrus and touch of caramel. Flavor is a boost of hops that mellows out to a nice balance of malt.

Scopey (16548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Cask gravity at GBBF. It pours clear copper with a small bubbly white head. The aroma is rich, sticky, oily, resin, pine, stewed orange, peachy, dank and leather. The taste is bitter, pine, resin, stickiness, oily, slick, alcohol sting, grapefruit, peppery spice, some sticky dank notes with a drying and resinous finish. Medium+ body, low carbonation and oily mouth - feel. Pretty punchy stuff. Good fun.
