Sixpoint – Resin DIPA – 9.1%

From the Sixpoint Brewery in the U.S comes Resin at 9.1%. Popping the cap on the can gives a dancing aroma of intense citrus and sweets. So sweet! you can almost see the resinous hop particles trailing from the can. Amazing. On the pour the hop aroma literally gushes and rolls out to assault the senses with intense citrus and boiled orange sweet aromatics. The appearance is malty amber with an average carbonation profile, head generates from decent to nothing. The body is thick caramel and quite engulfing, the taste is really quite sweet like golden syrup and then slowly drops away to a strong building bitterness. An end of the night, end of the world beer. This ale completely obliterates your taste palate for hours. Absolutely and wonderfully amazing.

Cloudwater – DIPA V7 SPECIAL EDITION – 9.0%

From the Cloudwater Brewery comes Cloudwater DIPA V7 Special Edition at 9.0%. Decapping gives a floral fragrance with a touch of smoke and a not too overpowering hop citrus aroma. Carbonation is about perfect. Head generation and retention is spot on! The pour is a slight hint of cloudiness and hazy blonde. The taste is tropical and sherbet, a real dance on the tastebuds. Moderate to high bitterness complements a fairly sweet malty presence and emphasises how spectacularly amazing this DIPA is. Clean, yet fruity and fragrant with sweet influences and bags of character and body. The alcohol permeates through slightly on the aftertaste, but this is absolutely wonderful stuff. A world apart from the DIPA 6, but still jaw dropping. Sourced from the Maisondubiere beer shop in Barnsley.

Cloudwater – DIPA V6 Special Edition – 9.0%

From the Cloudwater Brewery comes DIPA V6 Special Edition at 9.0%. Decapping gives a monstrous rush of aroma hops, little initial carbonation on the pour generates a superb stable frothy head. Dry hopping features a great deal. The pour is clear and amber. Aroma is resinous aroma hops, bursting with intense citrus fruity goodness. The taste is full bodied, with the alcohol well hidden beneath the bitter and semi malty backbone. To be honest the malt flavour is kind of hidden hidden too. The base allows you to concentrate on the hop aroma and flavour. Bittering turns out to be pretty mild and I was hoping for something a little less dull. It is a very good DIPA, clinical precision even, just lacking that flair of character like some naughty yeast flavour or something. Sourced from the Maisondubiere beer shop in Barnsley.

Vocation Brewery – Smash & Grab – DIPA – 8.5%

From the Vocation Brewery comes Smash & GrabDIPA at 8.5%. De-capping is hardly aromatic with a slight odd sulphur presence. The pour is deep amber with next to no head retention. As the pour settles, the beer comes literally comes alive and works seamlessly in synchronicity with the malt. Hop aromas unlock, develop and grow before your nose. From the taste of it, i’d say the crystal malt profile activates the beer. the sweetness of the malt with the resinous hop presence works in unison with the deep resinous pine and citrus flavour. This stuff is amazing. Malt & hops, hops & malts. perfect. Carbonation is compact and mild but works seamlessly with the brew. Overall Superb. Sourced from the Maisondubiere beer shop in Barnsley.

Northern Monk – Eternal Session IPA – 4.1%

From the Northern Monk Brewery comes Eternal Session IPA at 4.1%Nice slightly sweet citrus aroma on de-canning. Wonderful texture and mouthfeel to the beer. A perfectly adequate sparkle for this style. Very refreshing and more some. Not much head retention and aftertaste is pith like bitter with oodles of grapefruit. An excellent session IPA. The finish is long and lingering in bitterness. Bought a whole load of these from www.maisondubiere.com for the holidays.

Beavertown x Boneyard – Power of the Voodoo Triple IPA – 10.0%

From the Beavertown Brewery in London comes  Beavertown x BoneyardPower of the Voodoo Triple IPA at 10.0%.  De-capping gives a strong aroma of stewed apples, strong citrus and spice. Hazy appearance in general. the taste is almost medicinal, reinforced by an almost belgian spice like quality to the aftertaste. Quite malty and cloying hop resinous permeates this special brew. The alcohol is pretty well hidden. The head is pretty non existent but this is a wonderful brew. Perhaps a bit old for a triple IPA brew. Just plain wonderful.
