Bottle from SB. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber with small off-white to tan head. Aroma is citrus, grape, some tropical fruits, a bit of pine, and caramel. Taste is very hoppy and bitter from the start, slightly pungent midway through and then very fresh hoppy in the long finish. Creamy, full body.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ home. The aroma has caramel sweetness, even some raisin, grapefruits. Clear (but probably a bit hazy), dar red - brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweet, moderate bitter, has raisin, caramel, grapefruits, pine. Very full and powerfull. Initial bit sticky mouthfeel but this becomes more dry in the end. This is a very nice, balanced and complex beer. More like a hoppy barley wine. Anyway, great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 500ml bottle on 19/3/2012 (batch number 682, brewed on 22/8/2011, bb 22/8/2014). Pours a very cloudy deep orange with a very small head. Has a strong aroma of stewed fruit, resiny hops, and some spices. The flavour is big, sweet and fruity, with orange, peach, apricot, and marmalade, along with lots of caramel malt, brown sugar and a little honey. Has a big, spicy, lingering hop finish, though its bitterness is certainly less grapefruity than yank brews in this style. Lovely stuff.
