    Some great tins.

    Gipsy Hill Scalatrice
    Vibrant Forest Kaleidoscope
    Vibrant Forest Caldera Lake
    Vibrant Forest Umbral Abyss
    Siren The Missing Link
    Siren Midnight Mischief
    Siren Scene Stealer
    Siren/Elusive Zombies Ate My Neighbours
    Dark Revolution Mercury Rising

    Nothing poor amongst those but having to pick one I'm going for Vibrant Forest Caldera Lake.jpg, a Simcoe Imperial DIPA, absolutely gorgeous from a very good brewery.

    Running down stocks,all can consumption.

    Siren -- Scattered Light *
    Salt -- Citra NEIPA Jnr.
    Elusive -- Plasma
    Thornbridge -- Jaipur IPA *
    Elusive -- Bee Strong
    Marble -- Uppe Hela Natten
    Siren -- Middle Finger Discount
    Siren -- Nitro Coldblooded *
    Salt -- IKAT *
    Siren -- Cacao & Cherry Broken Dream Twisted Breakfast Stout *
    Siren -- Pompelmocello
    Siren -- Moonlight Beams
    Siren -- Calypso
    Siren -- Coldblooded

    A decent selection with a mix of style and good to repise some beers which were new to me only last week.BOTW goes to Salt IKAT,a great DDH DIPA.

    Next week thought needed to choose the brewer that will receive my online custom after previous deliveries from Marble,Salt,Elusive and Siren all produce very interesting brews.

    A healthy Marble restock and the local Tesco is now out of New World IPA:

    Bottles:
    Oakham Green Devil IPA
    Oakham Citra
    Marble/Burning Sky/Hawkshead Three Threads Porter
    Oakham Bishops Farewell

    Cans:
    Marble Extra Special Marble
    Marble Lagonda
    Marble Barley Wine 2018
    Marble Cross Collar
    Marble Earl Grey IPA
    Northern Monk Scafell
    Northern Monk New World IPA
    Marble Rapid Vienna IPA
    Marble Rapid Vienna IPA

    Bit disappointed by the Three Threads Porter which had a distinct and, to me unpleasant, sour finish. Everything else was very good.
    BOTW was Marble Earl Grey IPA. A classic that I only tend to have as a treat and I'd forgotten quite how good it is.
    Inspired by Mick and good previous experiences, I have a page open on the Vibrant Forest website so that may be the next stock up.

    The beers really good, not the quickest of delivery times though, on confirmation of order it was within 7 working days, mine came in 5, worth the wait though.

    Really wanted to drink a pint of something, rather than some incomprehensible metric volume. I'd discovered that the post office sells canned Harveys, so I treated us to a mini keg of Sussex XXXX Old Ale.Nectar.
    On the modern front, I enjoyed a can of Xylem , a 6.5%abv DDH IPA from Good Things Brewing.

    Thanks for the info.
    No real hurry as, “in these unprecedented times” I like to keep stock levels high.

    Are you all mostly looking for direct brewery purchases to source the myriad of special beers in these pages?
    I note Will, particularly, has had some high price high abv beers without, necessarily, the brewery link, but those could be from a specialist beer shop.
    If having delivered, what generally is the delivery charge (or the min spend for free delivery)? Marble, Siren, Salt sound interesting, though i'm thinking lots of murk in the latter two.
    If I re-read the above I realise it makes me sound like a newbie, or phishing troll, but I ain't, honest..!!

    Sirens shipping is 5.99, Vibrant Forest was free delivery on a January offer for orders over £30.00 . I was also impressed with New Bristol Brewery ( mostly murk), £4.99 delivery and arrived in 2 working days of conformation. I've just put an order in with this lot £4.99 delivery ,so I'll see how that goes.

    No one could mistake you for a troll, Jim. (More detailed reply to follow when I've extracted the relevant info from my spreadsheet.)
