COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask.
This golden-coloured IPA combines hop varieties from England, Germany, New Zealand and the USA, creating an exotic mixture of citrus lemon and tropical fruits in both taste and aroma.

BlackHaddock (3500) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2012
16th August 2012: hand-pulled pint in my local Wetherspoons into a UK sleeve. Yet another golden brew with a citrusy nose: I’m getting fed up with them now. No better or worse than the rest: middle of the road IPA where the blend of hops from around the world cancelled each other out a bit. The alcohol was just about detectable and helped to at least give the brew some ‘umph’, otherwise it was as forgettable as all the rest in this increasingly annoying style.
