COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional;
A strong, well-hopped ale. Powerful golden coloured beer with a fruity, citrus nose and flavour. A veritable Hop Bomb, with over a kilo of hops per brewers barrel, it avoids being too bitter with a skillful blend of American hops, making this a beer to be reckoned with. Handle with caution. Silver Medals at Reading Beer Festival 2007 and Peterborough Beer Festival 2006, as well as at SIBA SE Competition 2008 & 2009.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2009
Handpull @ Sporks, Crosse Keys. Pale amber with a thin white head. Extremely sweet malty nose with a little citrus hop beneath. Offensively sweet and cloying but has a nice bitter finish. Way too sweet for my taste, I couldnt even finish a half.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2008
Cask at SIBA beer festival, Kent: Amber coloured beer. Very sweet but not overly cloying. Hides it’s strength extremely well. Lots of citrus with a nice amount of hops. Yeah, good beer.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Cask at The Bricklayers Arms, Putney, 29th Sept 2007. Very slightly hazy gold appearance. Aroma of caramel and butterscotch which carries over into the flavour - its sweet butterscotch and toffee. The characteristic slickness of diacetyl is evident in the palate (along with alcoholic warmth) and overall, I found it distastefully sweet and sickly. Given the other ratings, I probably got a bad barrel and will try it again.

fonefan (47622) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2007
Cask (handpump) @ GBBF 2007, London. Clear medium yellow color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, citrus, lemon, light malty, toasted. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a long duration and a nice balance. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

harrisoni (18028) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2007
Cask gravity at Ealing BF 2007. I missed out on this at Reading so decided to have it here. Gold with slight haze, very thin white head. Slight fart, overridden by hop on aroma. Very decent in mouth, good sherberty US hop. Doesnt drink its strength. Good hop finish. Very citrusy. Not a bad beer, needs a bit more body.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2007
Gravity Cask @ Reading Beer Festival 07. Pale. Sweet and spciy. Zesty fruit and a sweet finish. Could do with a bit more hop but pretty good considering the strength.
