Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Amber with a white head. Virtually no aroma, perhaps some floral hop. Strong, oily hoppy taste with some grain. An oddly mushy finish. ’Authentic IPA’ said the pumpclip optimistically.

Botella. Clear deep golden with a medium white head. Fair lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. Good mouthfeel. The flavopur is not as hoppy as I hoped but the mild bitter hoppiness with some flowers is pleasant along with the citrus and soft sweetness. Mild bit sweet hoppy bitterfinish.
