An amazing package; on cask at the Bulls Head this date. This is the way to drink beer. The considerable heft is tucked away; as if with alcohol spanks, so forgiving. Such a delicious nose and the taste flavors round it out. This is an outstanding beer, served in the best possible circumstances.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to yellow color with an off white head. In the aroma, big orange citrus hops. In the taste, dryer orange citrus hops. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry orange citrus rind and hop in the aftertaste. Hides the 10% quite well, big orange citrus hops, quite enjoyable.
