Unlabelled bottle courtersy of Keen Massey - cheers ears! Based on colour and tasting notes, fairly sure it’s the Double Chinook version. Very hazy amber beer, big fluffy pale cream colour head. Rich hoppy nose with a little toffee as well. Palate is softish and slightly dry, fine minerally carbonation. Toffee malts. Little salt. Light floralness. Light marmalade. Finishes soft with a strong bitter linger. Really quite barleywine like. Tasty but needs a different balance for a DIPA.
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours hazy copper amber, nose is zesty grapefruit, taste is bitter and fruity. The_Osprey (7985) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Keg at Draft House as ’Redchurch Double IPA 9.1%’. Hazy orange, still, almost no head at all. Aroma is tangerine orange, peachy. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is peach schnapps up front, a little boozy, no real bitterness, quite sweet. It’s a bit soupy to be a DIPA - it’s much more of a barley wine. Slow drinker, but very fruity. I’d be more impressed if they billed it as a barley wine! Feels a bit like a failed DIPA. But still very good. Pyrmir (6094) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2014
On tap @O’Connors. Slightly hazy golden with thin white head. Aroma soft and fruity, caramel, grapefruit and faint resin. Taste is dry and bitter, lots of resin and grapefruit, some wood in the finish together with a long resiny bitterness. Light and nice considering the abv oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2013

Nice flavour with a lot of fruit taste is som sweetness with some fruit and some edgy bitterness. Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2013
Tap at the brewery, London. Pours lightly hazy gold with a fine, foamy white head. Well toasted malts in the nose, ripe citrus, hints of smoke, caramel. Huge sweet flavor, tons of fruit sugars, modest ham and smoke, honey, ripe grapefruit and orange, toasty sugars. Full bodiwd with fine carbonatiIon. A touch syrupy. Big resinous finish, mild warmth, plenty more ripe citrus fruits and accompanying sugars, mellow smokey ham. Very interesting stuff. Somewhere between a DIPA and a barley wine, with a hint of some tossed in for good measure. I happen to love it, but a straight-ahead DIPA it is not. dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2013
Keg at Bat. Hazy dark copper/orange, no head to speak of. Pithy, oily grapefruit and blood orange on the nose. Touch of light alcohol. Oily, petrol flavour but mostly dry, with resinous pine and grapefruit notes. Soft bittersweet finish at first, then crescendos to an arresting bitterness. A soft alcohol warmth. Needs a few more hops, but a pretty decent effort. Sadly absolutely zero carbonation here though.
