Our full flavoured, strong India Pale Ale. Now hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Nelson Sauvin. This beer has a pale straw-amber body, and pours with a full creamy head. Its complex flavours include mandarin orange, schnapps, pineapple, and juicy tropical fruits. It is warmingly alcoholic with a dry finish.

My personal fave of all the UK brewer's interpretations of the US IPA. Amazing aroma and mouthfeel. Would be much further up the IPA charts on here if it was more readily available outside the UK. Despite what it says in the bottle I prefer it chilled rather than at cellar temperature. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Steve (Beersiveknown), cheers! Aroma: Nice mix of grapefruit, gooseberry and white grapefruit. Appearance: Stiff, durable head, nice lacing, color is light golden. Taste: Dry, maltiness quite low, nice grapefruit bitterness but I would make it a bit more bitter, from hoppy notes: grapefruit, new zealand white fruit, mandarins. Palate: Finish is bitter and semi-dry, carbonation is medium, body is medium.

Hazy orange with awesome head. Hoppy aroma - mostly citra i think. Light body, light to medium sweetness, bit malty. Quite strong bitterness on finish, bit too long. Again: outstanding head.

Bottle from beer52, Pours a golden hue with a medium-light haze, enormous (half the glass) white fluffy head with real staying power. Aroma is tropical fruits, hint of pine resin, forest undergrowth hint of Apple which comes with a tip of the hat to its British heritage. Taste is big on bitter flavours with a real lingering bitter finish. Alcohol is really prominent all the way through. Overall all a nice treat but in my old age the massive bitter and alcohol blast just isn't what I'm looking for, needs a sweater malt profile to balance the new world hops.

Ottima ipa dal colore giallo-arancio, l’amaro non è prepotente, caraterizzata dal sapore di vari agrumi

Really fresh bottle, straight from brewery. It pours with a fluffy white head, but still has a fantastic hop aroma, really well balanced flavour, with a drying hop finish. Best British ipa .

Pours amber with light white head. Beautiful aroma of tropical fruits apple and hops with citrus. Tastes of mango and strong hops. Sweet hops with bitter citrus, very good indeed, would have a good few of these no problem.
