A 355ml can with a BB of Oct 2013. Acquired recently from Trembling Madness in York after I noticed it in a cooler; these are new there so I'm hoping it's relatively fresh. As always, Ralph Steadman's art is fantastic!

Poured into a Delirium chalice. A hazy orange-amber hue with medium carbonation and visible sediment. Yields a smallish head of white foam that lasts for a minute or so before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of intensely fruity, resinous hops with notes of grapefruit, orange peel, pine, citrus and hints of tropical fruit. This is underpinned by a backbone of caramel malt and subtle earthy yeast. Moreish.

Tastes of plentiful aroma hops with a powerful bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange oils, pine resin, cannabis, citrus, faint tropical fruit, caramel malt, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Well-attenuated; the alcohol is nicely hidden. Mildly spicy on the palate, followed by a strident bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with pleasant carbonation and good body. Hop oils stimulate the tongue. Highly astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and faint malt.

Tasty stuff, a solid American IPA. Certainly hop forward and attenuated; the malt is thoroughly relegated to a back seat. Tons of hop aroma/flavour but the malt and yeast do provide a degree of balance. Would've been nice if the head had lasted longer, but this is a minor quibble. A quality brew that should please any hop-lover; well worth sampling if you have the chance.
