COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
We pushed our small brewery right to the limit to create this bad boy. We selected half a dozen of our favourite American hops, grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington State, and added bucket loads of each. With twice the hop rate of most of our other beers, it really is very hoppy indeed.

GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Little white head. Light dry palate. Bitter resinous hop. Grapefruit, tangerine, touch of pineapple. Grassy bitterness. Dry finish and the bitterness turns marmaladey. Nice English IPA - if this had been put on the US bar it would have blended in seamlessly.

harrisoni (13253) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2011
At GBBF 2011. Clear gold lasting off white head. Grapefruit hop aroma. Good ipa. If you didnt know it was English you would say it was usa. Hoppy as hell. Touch too sweet maybe and the alcohol is a little obvious and hot but the huge grapefruit lychee hop is amazing. God british ipa. Lively. Pink grapefruit is good. Very impressive american style ipa made in the uk
