Gravity Dispense at the Battersea Beer festival, (Feb ’12).
Pours a dark golden / amber colour with a very thin white head.
Fruits (dried) and malts dominate the nose, a good all round earthy aroma, you just know that this beer has some bite in it!
Rich fruity hop flavours in the taste, slight hint of apple and maybe a pinch of spice in the background?
A full bodied ale, sticky in the mouth and a fairly dry finish.
Overall not a ’hop bomb’ but a good earthy hoppy chewy beer, will re-visit in the future hopefully!

Tasted this direct from the cask, gravity dispensed at the Lion, Trellech during their summer beer fest. A great example of a British version of a US West coast Double IPA, loved it, wish I could buy this stuff regularly in Bottle. Well done Otley, more power, - please convert this to the regular line up. justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Cask at Tap East. Pours a dark amber resembling peaty single-malt, with a white ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass. Sweet pineapple, grapefruit and grassy pine aroma. It eases itself smoothly over the tongue with a boozy tropical fruit flavour that hits the roof of the mouth before melting into a real tropical fruit caramel on the tongue. Quite an abrupt, slightly dry finish but leaving a wonderful if faint echo of roast pineapple and toffee. Satisfying and delicious.
