COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.

A proper I.P.A. this golden ale weighs in at an impressive 6.4%, and is so stuffed with hops, it will make your tongue tingle. This beer is dangerously drinkable. We also make a spanked version which has root ginger and chilli added to the cask which is just stupid.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2014
Bottled 20/09/14. A golden coloured beer with a big white head. Strong and hoppy as the label promises but it has bottling issues. Yeastiness overwrites some of the hops. The hops seem English. It’s OK just nothing special.

Rune (8493) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2012
Cask, half pint at The Angel. Crystal clear amber in body appearance. Low creamy white head. Aroma of citrus and ginger. Mix of citrus and ginger in flavour followed by the chili part. Cool cleanser, strange IPA (Manchester, 05.07.2012).

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin foam. Aromas are pineapple, caramel and biscuit with woody pine. Spiced oranges with woody pine and bitter grapefruit. Flavours are sweet tinned pineapple juice with dry woody notes. Stewed pear with bitter pine and grapefruit. Decent with a spicy palate.

Quack-Duck (8147) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from Darts Farm. Hazy orange-golden colour, creamy off-white head. Aroma and flavour of Victoria plums on a malty base with shy citrusy hints. Very good and moreish!

Fin (7692) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2009
Cask, gravity at the White Horse, Hedgerley, Bucks 08-08-09 on leg seven of the Thames Tipple Pours light amber with a white bubbly surface coating masquerading as a head. Some malt on nose touch of sweet fragrance also. The taste is like bitter honey, really tangy, the bitterness really bites. This is quite a zappy IPA, good hoppy stuff, very enjoyable but I slightly preferred the Acorn Woodstock, LOz on the other hand loved this and had a pint and a half. A6 A4 F7 P4 Ov13 3.4

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2010
Cask (handpump) at the Wenlock Arms, Islington, 31 July 2009. Certainly aiming at an American IPA style and succeeds rather well. Amber colour. Plenty of pithy lemon on the nose. Grapefruit is stronger on the palate. Pine, resinous notes throughout. Not without malt backing either. Good balance. Good beer all round.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2010
A Mes rate. Gravicask at the Bree Louise.
Bright clean gold with a Bree Louise head (as in none what-so-ever). This is pretty decent stuff. Pretty much half way between an English cask IPA and an Amercan bottled IPA towards the lighter end of the scale. Good sweetish caramalt base and some really tasty sharp tangerine hoppage. Very fruity all round really. Rather astringent phenolic notes let it down a little but overall, really good. Not even close to enough bittering hop for me though. Add that and i’d be all over this.

downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Royal Oak, Bath 13/06/09. Amber with a tight white head that left rings down the glass. Aroma of spicy hops, oranges and sweet malts. Flavour had more of the same with some pine resin, prickly mouth feel and a long dry finish. The "monkey" in question is Chris, the manager of the Royal Oak, who appears on the pump clip. Very good.

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2010
Small coarse offwhite head. Amber body, very faintly hazy. Nutty gingery aroma with earthy floral notes. Dry-sweet earthy floral fruity taste with resiny gingery notes. Mid-bodied. Hottish, peppery mouthfeel. Dry strawy earthy fruity aftertaste with caramel notes. After you swallow it turns really hot and ingery. Dangerously moreish because of it. (0.5pt cask at The Rake, London.)

Bottle @ Home. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of malt, fruity hops, flowers, little old. Flavor is malt, rather bitter fruity hops, peach, old hops. Medium body, soft carbonation, rather bitter finish. 181013
