Eww, like licking a pine cone mixed in a pool of bitters. I won't be drinking many IPAs, I have taste buds unfortunately.

Simcoe hops at its best, I believe.

After reading the reviews this popped right into my wants. Then on a lowly day when beer shopping my phone died, unable to turn to BA for advice. With no particular wants in mind I picked this up, read the description on the side and knew I had to try it. This ended up as a want twice and for good reason. Smells and tastes primarily of citrus, mostly grabbing grapefruit and apple, surprisingly brings a brisk spice aspect once the pine comes forward. Aftertaste is dry and suitable to taste. Mouthfeel is crisp with biting carbonation. So easy and pleasurable to drink, my new personal go-to.

On cask at 2014 Snallygaster.

A: Pours a cloudy, opaque straw/apple cider color with generous, large bubbled head. Very good retention and some lacing. (4.25)

S: Citrus forward with Fuji apple and pale malt. Not super hoppy. (4)

T: Sharp white grapefruit, apple and pear, and some floral notes. A bit flabby. (4)

M: Creamy, light carbonation and medium body. (4)

O: Decent enough, but nothing to write home about. I'm not sure the cask did this any favors. (3.75)

Delicious DIPA, that is big, but dangerously easy to drink. Superb zesty citrus flavours, and has the required sweetness to counterbalance the layers of hops. Piney, bitter, perfect dry finish, wonderful balance, an absolute gem all round.
