Bottle from ’Jacks’ Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon Tuesday 19th February 2013 consumed at home Tuesday 26th Feb 2013 Pours light amber with a veiled cloud of haze sitting within, head is white and slim. This tastes marvellous, softened by the oak it has a light vanilla edge, the citrussyness of the nose is also blunted a little by this as well. Taste is great, wonderfully citrussy but the oak ageing is marvellous, still it makes me do the ’snake flicky out tongue thing’ with a late double clack, very lemony, very good. In fact I have to say better than the very decent Buxton Wyoming. Dry towards the end, lovely lovely beer. A8 A4 T9 P4 Ov17 4.2 Leighton (21092) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle at the Euston Tap, London, shared with Thomas. Pours lightly hazy gold with a sturdy, white cream head. Big ripe citrus nose, some minerals, faint pine. Big sweet flavour, good bit of juicy citrus, some pale malts, bit of straw. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Mild warmth to finish, lots of sugary citrus, some toasty sugars, good bit of pectin. Quite a nice beverage. johndoughty (5403) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle. At one time a lot of British micro’s produced run of the mill bitters frequently not very well bottled. How times have changed! This is a powerful beer overflowing with flavour. A combination of hops and fruitiness with a few other flavours thrown in. This could have come from the West Coat of America. Long may the micro revolution continue.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into an Orval goblet glass.
Pours a mid-amber colour with not a huge head but good lacing.
Smells extremely fresh (because it was when I opened it). You can really smell those hops coming through, quite piney and fruity but above all fresh like a breezy summer day.
Tastes at first quite mellow and smooth but a bitter sharpness builds up as you taste. Mostly quite citrusy and fruity, though those pale malts ease off the citrus. Very nice and refreshing with a good lingering and lip-smacking bitterness.
Overall a really lovely beer, I wish I had more. Can’t wait for their future Tiny Batch releases. BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Slighly hazy amber with nice off white head. Slightly dusty resinous pine, orange and just a little oak. Taste of caramel and resinous hops with a balanced measure of oak vanilla. Decent body, slightly sweet. If I had to nit pick, it could do with more bitterness. Not really sure about oak aged dipa in principal but this is the second one I’ve had that I’ve really enjoyed

from cotteridge wines.
pithy resin on the nose with underlying butterscotch, surely the influence of the wood. On the swirl comes Seville oranges. Mid amber with lacing of fluffy white head. Gentle carbonation with full tangerines and a dab of resin on tip of the tongue followed by a full mouthfeel with vanilla and caramel replaced by orange peel in the lingering finish. A touch of oatcakes and marmite.
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Brum. Pours with only a ring of froth. Thick, sticky and still. Smells sweetly floral, with some boiled toffee. Disconcertingly gentle. Big sweet caramel accompanies the thick, sticky, building alc. Not harsh and the hops are anything but booming, yet it is quietly big. Nice, but hops are a bit too leafy/organic for me. essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2013
