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.

Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, - FEB 2, 2013
Cask at the Euston Tap 01/02/13. Hazed golden amber with a thin bubbly off white head. Nose is caramel, light piss, fruits. Taste comprises hops, fruits, sweet sugars, pineapple. Medium bodied, a little chewy, sweet finish. Drinkable OK stuff but a little over sweet, not enough bitterness, balance not quite there for me.

AdiBeer (867) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Aroma: floral hops, citrus fruits, grapefruit. Appearance: hazy pale gold, no head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, nice hops, average-long, slightly dry finish. Overall: beautiful IPA, complex aroma and palate, yet light in ABV. Pint at The Porter, Bath.

minutemat (1286) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Keg @ Euston Tap. Pours murky brown, somewhat muddled taste, lots of hops flying about blending tropical flavours with stone fruit bracing bitter pine but not quite mixing right for me.

ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a large off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Fresh pine, grapefruit and lychee hops mix with mild white bread malt to create the aroma. Strong pine and pepper hops up front soften into lychee leading into the mid-palate. This features white bread and mild caramel malt, with grapefruit hops in the finish. A good, solid IPA.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours amber with a large, lasting head. Nose shows floral and fruity hops in abundance. Orange blossom, lychee, pear and nectarine with some sweet clean malt underneath. Aggressive flavours, more focussed on grapefruit and pine with a very clean malt profile. An assertive bitterness rolls through the finish. Nice moderately high carbonation.

Mjp12 (269) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
From a conditioned bottle, cloudy orange, with thining white head. Great hop and aroma, great carbonation levels.very good US style Ipa.

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy amber with an inch of loose white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lime, mango, some caramel - nice hops, not very nuanced. Nicely soft and enveloping in the mouth, medium to low carbonation. More tropical and stone fruit in the taste (yes, yes, "taste") which is sweet with a lick of caramel. Wafts of citrus come in, too. Moderate to high bitterness. Good.

ogm87 (15) - Puglianello, ITALY - MAY 4, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2014 ottima american ipa, direi una delle migliori. Aroma eccezionale, fruttata al punto giusto.

laidbackbloke (58) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 1, 2014
On tap at the Three Tuns, Bristol Apr 2014. Floral and fruit power taking over the aroma. You suspect it to be alcohol-filled, as you have probably learned from drinking other stronger IPAs. Not at all. Slick impression on the palate, endless bitter, yet fruit and not resiny nor hoppy finish. Yummy

AshtonMcCobb (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 22, 2014
On keg. Appearance - golden amber with attractive lacing. Nose - oranges and toffee. Taste - marmalade and possibly lime marmalade. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - good ipa.

RichTheVillan (2419) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; cloudy light copper pour with big bubbly off white head, tropical hop aroma loads of peach mango and pine, aroma is translated into the taste a tropical hop bomb with a malty edge, big carbonation. Nice.
