Very Good
JakeheadJakehead
Notes: Supercharged India Pale Ale.... Rich/bright & amber/bronze with lots of American hop aroma. Distinctly bittersweet on the palate with a massive hop complexity fashioned deep within the IPA tradition.

Hop: Citra, Centennial, Chinook T90, Simcoe T90, Citra T90

Deep amber with leggy white film. 4
Da kronik!! A touch of rind as it opens. 4
Thread of caramel, then greenery, grass, resin and earthy end. Warms into slight orange peel. 4
Round, slight oil, chewy, almost medium. 4

Huge mulchy nose is your warning shot: here’s an IPA that’s all dank and nothing else. Just the slightest citrus, no pine, no tropical - I’m not sure how they do it. It’s not even super fresh. A California sea monster from 2003, and I’m all good with that. 4.25

Bottle from realale.com in Twickenham. Quite a thick feel, laid-back carbonation, heavy, sweet malts propping up really resinous piney hops. Very sickly.

Pours a hazy, brown'ish amber coloration with a medium, foamy head. Smells of biscuity, slightly caramelly malt, citrus and lighter tropical notes of grapefruit, orange rind, mango and pineappple, with a profound dankness coming through as well. Taste is a great balance of sweet'ish biscuity, slightly caramelly malt and bitter, citrus hops, with ligher notes of tropical fruits and notes of grapefruit, orange rind, mango, pineapple, as well as quite a profound dankness and just a hint of pine. Finishes with a medium/strong bitterness and some dank, citrus notes lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with medium body and carbonation.

One of the dankest IPAs I've ever had, in a good way, with some quite nice citrus and lighter tropical notes, rounded out by a great balance of sweet'ish malt and quite bitter hops.
