Half Pint of tap at Craft Beer Co, Farringdon, London (£4.50):
Deep ruby amber to copper colour in the glass with a thin white lacing on top and around the sides.
Fresh hops with strong caramel notes and further grassy hops. There is a lot of sugar upfront and some sweetness along with hints of toffee and a generally quite rich aroma. There is some roasted malts as well but overall it is the hops with some citrus that dominates.
Caramel and rich, sweet flavours with grassy hops from the smell and a lot of bitterness. There is some grapefruit coming through and a lot of sweetness. Surprisingly refreshing and had a pleasant alcohol kick to it that went down well.
Smooth with a medium to full body and a lot of carbonation. There bitterness levels were very in your face and the mouthfeel was complimented by some sweet malts too.
An exceptional beer and one that did not disappoint in any way, shape or form upon first trying it. The beer was insanely hoppy with lots of bitterness. Surprisingly easy to drink and went down well with the mouthfeel complimented the taste and smell quite well. A must try.
Serving type: on-tap

a. very nice bronze/red color with a 2 inch tan head. Lacing on glass.
s. Not much here. Malty aroma.
t. Taste of berries in the first sip, strawberries primarily. Gives way to a malt in the middle with slight hops and alcohol on the finish.
m. lots of carbonation - smooth
o. I wish the alcohol was hidden. This is an outstanding beer that seems stronger than it needs to.
