660ml bottle pours a copper color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is caramel and lighter fruits with some grapefruit hops. Taste is a bold grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness and a hint of alcohol with a grainy finish. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. Overall, this is like a hoppy barley wine and I really enjoyed sampling this one.
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pesca giallona, opalescente, schiuma leggera. Al naso sentori di malto, frutta gialla, mango, melone, resina. In bocca ha una base di malto importante con amaro finale deciso. Corpo pieno, carbonazione medio-leggera. Birra sui generis, una sorta di american barley wine. Molto buona!

330ml can. Pours a deep amber/copper colour with a medium off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma: pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit, tropical fruit, orange. Taste: lots of fruity hops, citrus, tropical, orange, grapefruit, sweet malt, caramel. Pretty bitter but pleasant, touch of alcohol but overall it’s fairly well hidden, medium bodied, fairly well balanced. A very drinkable DIPA. I’m sure this would have been one of the best beers ever when it was first brewed 9 years ago, still holds up well today. fletchfighters (1520) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 28, 2017
Not copper color but a lighter shade of orange amber. Off white head. Rocky but very good retention for the AVB. Big strips of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Very muted nose. Soft pine and citrus, soft caramel backbone. Faint bubblegum lollypop nose.
Taste is very candied. Candied, sweet malt, Notes of watermelon bubblegum, candied citrus. Some soft bitterness that does grow. Some resin and oil but to be the profile says Imperial pale, not IIPA.
Feel says big, bold pale, more about malt than hops, that is OK. Well hidden alcohol and well balanced. solid Samma (166) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2017
Canned. Big, big citrus pine nose. Pours golden. Packed full of citrus bitterness but somehow well balanced. The abv is incredibly well hidden. john44 (3078) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2017
Cask Half Pint at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London in Feb 2011 - Deep Amber in colour. Hazy. Intensely Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Very Fruity; citrus grapefruit, orange and tropical fruit. Malty; biscuity malts, caramel. Great hop/fruit/malt balance. Sweet-bitter citrus hoppy fruity and slightly dry throughout. Liked this a lot. Lovely IIPA! (2011-02-05)

On tap. Colore arancio ambrato scuro opalescente con leggera schiuma soapy. Olfatto intenso di luppolo terroso piccante. Aroma completamente dominato dal luppolo, terroso e cupo, marcatamente alcolico con finale di malto scuro crespo e lievito. Gusto amaro pieno e molto secco. Corpo pieno, trama concretamente terrosa con i luppoli quasi in masticazione. Carbonazione molto presente con sensazione di solidificazione. Finale di bocca secco e cremoso. Dopo beva alcolico e maltato cupo. Una IIPA assolutamente concreta e densa nella luppolatura, agli estremi del genere ma tuttavia alquanto godibile e non così forzata. Robeperse (86) - - DEC 17, 2016
On tap. Colore ambrato, schiuma bianca persistente. Al naso odori floreali ed erbacei. Al gusto si sente un intensità di luppoli ben amalgamati, note di caramello, malti tostati. Retrogusto medio. ippopotamo36 (2356) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 15, 2016
Tap at Buskers in Rome-Italy with Mortlach. Cloudy amber pour, creamy ivory foam. Nose: sweet citric, cookies, malt. Mouth is an attack of sweet/bitter notes, amber malts, alcohol is quite strong. Garrold (5185) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Can. Beer Central, Sheffield. Holy shit, I never would’ve imagined this beer was first brewed so long ago. Just shows how much Moor is such an influential, progressive brewery, who popped up on the cusp of a beer revolution in the U.K. I imagine drinking this, then, is like the first time trying Summer Lightning, or a bottle of White Shield or Orval. Super juicy. Super easy drinking. Awesome. dambor (680) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2016
Pours dark orange with nice head. Aroma: herbs, nice spices, citrus and ripe oranges. Taste: nice full body, a bit biscuits, herbs and oranges. Very good. ABV well hidden
