COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg, special
2013 Single-hop release. Part of the IPA is dead series. Single hopped with Amarillo @6.9%
Re-Released as part of 2014 selection. @7.2%
One of our favourite American hops; all about the fruit. Think blood orange, orange zest and citrussy goodness fruit, the fruit is balanced by floral notes in the most classic of new wave IPA hops.

imdownthepub (10220) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Keg at The Brewdog Bar, Nottingham. Hazy gold with white head. Initially quite a harsh, resinous flavour moving towards quite a peachy flavour, bitter, lasting. Interesting beer but not a quaffer for me.

Theydon_Bois (8667) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2013
Keg at Brew Dog Shoreditch, 25/02/13. Note for self - 6.9% ABV request style change to IPA. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin bubbly off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nose is malt, citrus, orange, lemon sherbet, biscuity, wheatabix. Taste comprises bitter orange, grass, hops, caramel, sugars. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, bitter dry finish. Ok drinkable stuff but a bit one dimensional and not one I’d bother with again given a choice.

Fin (7409) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle consumed at Cropredy ’Fairports Annual Reunion’ Festival, Cropredy, Oxon, Thursday 7th August 2014 Pours clear warm gold, really is excellent clarity, a touch of honey bitterness good but under a malty leash. Nicely hoppy, but goes well with smoked almonds. A very good beer but smoother and less crisp than expected. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3
