3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle conditioned from Newcastle market.
Aromas of freshly cut hay. Very cloudy despite having a good stand time. Absolutely no carbonation or head. No lacing.
Very good flavour, bursting with grapefruit notes, and full of hop character. A very pleasant drink but I would guess not very carefully bottled due to the lack of carb and the cloudiness.
Bottle at home. Pours golden, huge toffee crystal malt, sweet, bitter, light pine fruit.

330ml bottle from Beermoth. Pours a dark orange/brown with short-lasting head. The aroma, however, was an immediate put-off and made me dread what was to come, a strange herbal off-character that smelt and tasted wrong. Visually this looked fine, but tastewise it’s pretty bad & I just can’t imagine it was meant to come out this. Sinkpour :( storskurk (147) - DENMARK - OCT 10, 2013
Fyldig humlesmag og balanceret bitterhed kombineret med meget engelsk maltsmag som en typisk bitter.

Dark orange body and small clumped white head. Box of sweets nose, nothing amazing and lacking in double ipa juiciness. Soft oily thread, full on oversweet and undercooked. Pretty substandard juiciness and flat bitterness. Generally unsatisfying for a double, apart from the twang from the ABV. Beese (3210) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle, Provenance Wines
Bottle at Pleased to Meet You, Newcastle on 29 July 2013.
Poured a slightly hazy copper colour with a medium white head. Aroma of biscuit, tropical fruit and a little butterscotch. Grapefruit flavours with bread, toffee and orange peel. The residual bitterness was not very balanced and was unripe fruit with some resin.

33cl bottle from Provenance Wines. Appearance - not pale at all. Quite orange to amber with nice lacing. Nose - malt and cardboard. Off notes. Taste - malt and not much else. Palate - light to medium bodied with a clean finish kinda. Overall - not what it is supposed to be. A premium bitter. allmyvinyl (11019) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Can this brewery only make bitters? This is like an ESB, but on that;s been taken off the yeast too soon (again). Cardboard aromas. Where are the hops? Not at all good. The_Osprey (9136) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Keg. Pale yellow/orange with minimal head. Cheesy smell, taste isn’t quite as potent as I’d like in a DIPA, malt holding up well against citrus flavours with a smooth bitter finish reminiscent of classic British bitters. A very traditional take on a DIPA. Theydon_Bois (20621) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2013
Cask at Craft Clerko, cheers to Paul for the split, 26/06/13.
Lightly hazed golden with a very thin off white head that dissipates edgeward.
Nose is bitter grapefruit, dank hops, orange, light caramel, sugars, hint of booze.
Taste comprises orange pith, grapefruit, bitter hops, piney notes.
Full end of medium bodied, hop bitterness and a touch of booze in the finish.
Decent strongish cask IPA - well balanced and drinkable. jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Cask @ Craft Clerkenwell. The pour’s amber with a small head. The nose is very sweet mango, pineapple, general tropical fruits. A bit of bubblegum. The taste is herbal hops. Unwashed root vegetable. Some pineapple, cheddar cheese. Mango fruit leather. Full mouthfeel. Syrupy. Soft carbonation. Overall, solid.
