COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
cask and bottled
The original cask version (at 7.6%) has a separate listing.
Flavoursome strong pale ale, full of grapefruit aromas.
This commanding IPA-style beer is golden in colour, with a wave of hop aromas leading to a balance of bitterness and sweetness in the flavour, plus a lasting grapefruit finish. Hops used: Chinook, Citra, Magnum, Nelson Sauvin

Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with a note of Meyer lemon, light note of butter. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Basically a richer version of the Golden, but while the aroma is attractive it’s pretty quiet. Wonderful balance in the mouth, neither too sweet or too dry for its size, very clean and flavorful. As enjoyable as the Golden, but the Native Storm is the clear winner among the three.

From a bottle. Pours a honey golden colour with a decent head. Didn’t get a lot of aroma, but the taste is malty and sweet, balanced against some nice crisp grapefruity hops. Not as bitter as many North American styled IPAs, but I find those a bit astringent at times, so this was very palatable for me

TomTron (376) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Pours a hazy golden with a thin almost non-existant head. Aromas of yeast, some fruit, and earthy hops. Taste has some malt floating around, and a little bit of grapefruit, but with every sip I take away a dry, metallic finish. It’s not a bad offering but not necessarily that great either.

vipinvelp (2187) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2012
Darker yellow with white foam head lacing to glass. Aroma is bitter hops and some citrus, taste is same, with bitter prevailing. Citrus bitter aftertaste, a good beer. (Velp 201208)

Clear golden colour woth a frothy white head. Strong malt aroma with sweet honey. Smooth texture. Flavour of honey, citrus bitter tang in the finish.

Tap. Listed at 5.6% and certainly not from cask. Rich, full and fruity. Lots of berries, grapefruit and a touch of tropical fruit. Really full - if a bit heavy handed. Well made and certainly recommended.

Aroma di agrumi, malti biscottati, caramello, con note di lievito e spezie. gusto di malto, ben rivestito da luppoli erbacei e note agrumate.

Hazy amber beer. Good white head. Dry palate, a little soft. Dry dry malt. Fairly even, perhaps a touch of caramel. Nice fruit, sweet orange with a touch of grapefruit. Finishes dry. Nice flavour but way too dry.
