On Cask at Gambrinus Bistro and Cafe. An initially murky peach turns to a transparent deep gold. Has an frothy cap to start that fades to a thin ring. Nose is full of peach and pear, and has pine, citrus rind, perfume. Again, full of sweet fruity peach flavour with bitter citrus pith and pine. Oily, full bodied, but the ABV not detectable which makes it an easy drinker. Very good effort.

Listed as a DIPA at Volo- I assume it is the same beer (at 7.3%, it is a pretty strong IPA!)

Beer is dark golden in colour, with a small but solid white head. Lots of lacing.

The smell is quite faint. I get some bitter hops and a bit of soap, but that's about it.

Taste is very bitter, and a bit creamy. A soapy taste is present as well. Surprisingly, I did taste a bit of bubble gum at time, which I would not expect with the style. A slight bit of citrus is present. Really, the bitterness is the main focus of the taste.

Beer is medium bodied, low carbonation. Actually feels a bit heavy for the taste.

Overall, decent but not great. Happy to have had it, and would have it again, but won't rush to try it.

Split a growler of this with my dad. Pours a copper-orange colour with thick white head. Small lacing down the glass. Smells of leafy hops with bready malt. Flavour has more bitterness than hoppiness, I think it needs more dry hopping or something? Nice sweetness in the beer though. Medium bodied mouthfeel. I think there really is something here if the hop flavour would match the bitterness.

Cloudy light golden amber colour with decent head.

Grapefruit hops dominate the initial odour. Some light malt presence, but it's easily lost.

Taste is all hops from front to back...hops punch you in the face like a pine cone. Half way through pint I noticed a slight malt presence. Kinda lopsided in favour of hops IMO.

Def thicker...but it's a 7% beer so it should be.

Overall I really loved this beer and much like the Belgian IPA I wish they would brew it more often. Maybe they will...who knows.

On tap at volo, listed as DIPA

Pale copper colour, big white head, sticky, good lacing on the glass. Smell is of soft citrus, nice hop, malt is there, slightly muted citrus, grapefruit. Taste is dry, malty, good bitter hop, slightly leafy, citrus is revealed in the finish. Good mouthfeel, creamy, light carbonation. Drinks very well, some good stuff here and would drink this again.
