COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a pale version of Occultation. We’ve used the same hop profile and coffee beans, but altered the malt bill, and we think this version really lets the dank hoppiness of the vic’s secret and chinook shine.

November 2016 - Bottle picked up online and shared at Canary Wharf. As ’Mad Hatter Occultation Nova’. Translucent golden yellow, big foamy dense white head, full lacing. Aroma is flinty, light coffee, papery. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is floral and earthy up front, light coffee vibes, a touch watery into the finish. OK. (3.2)

Garrold (5507) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2016
Bottle. Dram Shop, Sheffield. Hazy, yellow gold. Thin, dense, messy, lasting, sticky, white head. Looks great. Nose has a vegetal, green coffee bean note, first off. Nicely juicy hoppage thereafter. Pineapple. Melon. Orange pulp. Background of sweet, biscuity malts. Taste is light bitter. Some earthy coffee. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Hop bitterness rises and lingers toward the finish. Quite unusual, but seems to work well.

Hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and has good fine minerally crispness. Light malts, mildly sweet. Nice light piney lime with a little tangerine - mandarin - orange and a trace of lemon. A mild tang runs throughout. Try as I may, no coffee I can discern. Smooth tangy citric finish. Nice.
