Tuatara Double Trouble
Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, pine, some peach, slight biscuity malts and subtle floral, grassy hops. Taste of grapefruit, orange, resin, some peach, a hint of orchard fruits, subtle biscuity malts and slight earthy, floral hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long, dry and bitter, citrus and earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Citrusy and resinous with big, bitter earthy and floral hops but I find the finish too bitter with a hint of oxidation. Doesnt taste 9% though. Expected better.

Taste is dominated by grapefruit and pepper, with hints of tropical at the edges. As it warms its bandwidth widens, grapefruit pith is added to the grapefruit, lemon is threaded through the middle, grass and orange put their two cents in. As it warms more, pineapple, mango and caramel come to the party and pine and resin start being detected at the back.

Tuatara Tu-Rye-Ay Midnight Rye IPA
Como debería ser una black IPA con centeno, y punto! No estará de acuerdo el bjcp pero la presencia de notas tostadas y torrefactas, con un cuerpo sedoso y viscoso es lo que busco en el estilo. Sumado al centeno, su característica burbuja y su punto especiado, el cítrico del amarillo y nueva dosis especiada y resinosa del simcoe, el resultado es un paso te. Ahora ponlo en una botella guapa y de 50 CL y puedes ir a dormir tranquilo!

Tuatara Double Trouble
Color dorado, translúcido, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación alta (más sutil en boca). Textura acuosa. Aroma muy complejo: cítricos, frutas tropicales, algo de melocotón, mucho lúpulo y resina, alguna especia (probablemente) y un toque de alcohol. En boca es casi dulce, con presencia de cítricos y frutas tropicales (estas últimas más remarcadas que en aroma). La base maltosa está menos presente de lo que el estilo me tiene acostumbrado, aunque no se echa en falta. Enorme cantidad de lúpulo, más que en nariz. Final de amargor medio (dudo mucho de esos 167 IBUs), resinoso, con un toque mínimo de alcohol (disfrutable, no lo digo como algo negativo). Echo en falta algo más que resina en postgusto, pues el amargor se pierde rápido. Cuidado, hay altas probabilidades de que más de uno (entre los cuales me incluyo) se ventile el medio litro en menos de media hora y sus 9% no son para andar con bromas. Muy recomendable. Tenía claro que si no escatimaban en diseño no lo harían en la elaboración.

Tuatara Amarillo American Dark Ale
110416. This bottle was purchased at First Choice Liquor and went down a treat. Toffee and vanilla in the nose and also carries into the flavour. Light black to brown colour and a coffee coloured head of foam. While it is thin in the mouth this doesn’t detract from the beer overall. This is one of the best beers that I have had from Tuatara in a while.

Tuatara Tu-Rye-Ay Midnight Rye IPA
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón (muy cremosa, grumosa y de muy buena retención). Carbonatación alta. Textura cremosa. Aroma a lúpulo suave, resina, chocolate, café, malta torrefacta. Sabor lupulado, torrefacto, con mucho café y chocolate. Amargor suave y bien calibrado. Postgusto a chocolate y café. Riquísima e increíblemente bien hecha. A tres meses de caducar y una delicia. Recién embotellada tiene que ser increíble.

A decent beer. Hoppy, slightly bitter, pours with thick white head. Almost a great beer, but the citrus slightly overdoes it for me. Also, to everyone else reviewing this, the bottle is a Tuatara, not an alligator!!

On tap at Smiths. Pours dark gold. Aroma is all salted caramel, but then it all goes wrong. Starts salted caramel, moves into sharp malt vinegar and then finishes with seawater. Palate is thin and undercarbonated. Uniquely disgusting.

One does not normally associate 7.5% with easy drinking. Light almost sherbet aroma, deep amber pour with tan head. Grapefruit is the most distinguishable flavour with some caramel malt. Long, but not across finish. No tongue coating resin here.

Tuatara Amarillo American Dark Ale
330 ml bottle. Deep brown body with some brick red highlights at the edges, sporting a thin off-white head. Aromas of cocoa, dates, orange and a bit of coffee. Taste features dark fruit at the start, lifted by a definite hop bitterness. Slips away a little at the end into a chocolatey aftertaste. Pretty good for a sometimes nondescript style.
