COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special.
With the previous week’s brewing cancelled and Gazza away on a birthday scooping trip in Warsaw, Dave (and guest brewer Danny) stepped up to create a strong pale ale absolutely stuffed full of three of his favourite hops; Citra, Columbus and Chinook. The name, in case you’ve not realised, is from another of our Musical heroes this time Industrial Goth-metal top geezer Mortiis from Norway...
This won’t be a beer for those who think British beer needs to be brown, toffeeish, vaguely dry and with the merest suggestion of dusty old hops; no, this will be a very pale, very bitter (120+ IBU) and ludicrously hoppy monster which might even top the awesomeness of CTZ, our last brew, in the hop stakes!

Handbottled from Gazza who brought this along to share with Fin & Loz 18.08.11 Pours gold with a white head. Sweetness on the nose, some maltiness but there is a tropical squishy fruit that reminds me a little of those rubicon exotic drinks, as Gazza point’s out it is the mango coming through from the Citra. Really nice in the mouth, furry bitterness running across the roof of the mouth, bit dry, but good stuff. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

chriso (7569) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2011
Cask (handpump) at Reading Beer Festival on 28 April 2011. Clear, pale straw colour. Loose white head. Pungent hoppy aroma with strong grassy, tropical fruit and citrus notes. Good firm hoppy flavour - same elements but maybe a little toned down compared to the aroma. Very bitter but retained a good drinkability. Certainly nowhere near "undrinkable"!

Cask handpull at Reading BF 2011. Gold clear lasting thin bubbly white head. Simcoe and Citra on the aroma. This is good. Better than the BAGS I thought. Really easy drinking delightfully hoppy beer. Tasty hoppy beer.
