A beer of inherent contradiction. This heavy weight of the beer world is strikingly delicate with a white gold appearance. The light fruity aroma dominates the initial confrontation; lychee, kiwi and passionfruit all prevail with subtle nuances of cherry and strawberry. Don’t be fooled however by this smooth medium bodied ale. As it trickles down your throat as this wolf in sheep’s clothing begins to grow teeth. The bite comes as the bitterness builds and endures no matter how hard the malty sweetness of the alcohol tries to tame this ferocious beast.

Surprised that I never rated this one. Really liked it. Nose of resinous and piney hops. Flavor was much of the same. Well balanced and bitter.

birra piatta nel sapore e nei profumi,amaro poco percepito.Deluso rispetto ai pareri generali su questa birra.Forse la scadenza vicina,(ad un mese dalla scadenza) o forse qualcos’altro,hanno influenzato la bontà del prodotto.Per questo avrà un’altra possibilità

Une amertume légère qui ne prend pas le dessus sur les arômes qui tendent vers le pamplemousse

Many gallons on tap and largely via Sainsburys in bottles. 2008 - 2011. Pale golden blonde with a decent white cap. Nose is citric peel, orange pith, straw, toasted bread, passionfruit, grapefruit. Taste comprises grapefruit, tea leaves, bitter orange, straw, earthy hops, light pine tingle. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close peppered with grassy hop bitterness. Solid IPA.
