Delayed in getting to work today after problems with the train, but in the bigger picture it wasn't that bad. First day back at work after the new year was a solid one with lots of orders, a bit of Web stuff, and some good'ol box cutting!

Went for this big ol'bottle after a push from James. Double IPA in a more classic ale like bottle with a pretty uninspiring white label showing the name and a dash of rainbow colours.

So, opening this up with my girlfriend, the first smell was very feint indeed. Just a malty bubbling and slight tropical hint. The swig brought on a slight hoppy hit with a pineapple and mango tropical flavour. Have to say the finish wasn't enjoyable though, just too malty with an extra pineapple kick at the end....just wasn't balanced well for me. Drink had punch, but just not in the right places for my kind of tipple.

As always, I hope you enjoyed my personal review, but why not come into Beercraft of Bath and try it for yourself!...🍺🤓 Han

As weird as it sounds Cassiopeia is my favourite constellation, so this cracking can showing a starry night with beer related constellations over a vista scene that really appealed... First smell is a thick one that seems to be bubbling in the can with a coffee flavour edging out. The following swig really gives you that caramel hit on a rush of creamy boozy flavour that is just packed to the rafters.

Very vibrant smell to open the can, nice and refreshing! The next taste offers a nice floral hoppy hit that really glided off the tongue nicely. Each swig after was a light and breezy fruity flavour that didn't subside and kept that upbeat experience. A surprise one to be honest, loads of energy and we'll balanced with flavour and hops.
