Aroma is complex fruit and a low musty character. The flavor is fruit, citrus/grapefruit, biscuit/bready malts and a tangy finish.

A great IPA. Gorgeous hoppy and grapefruit aromas. Pours golden and bubbly with a lasting white head. Tastes pretty bitter but with a touch of sweetness that balances perfectly. A nice smooth palate a light bodied beer. Very drinkable!

Goldish light copper,clear,short head,lacing. Sweet ripe-fruit aroma,with spice,tart,buttery,bready cracker,maybe slight dms. I was gonna say it has a bitter aroma,but now that I think about it that is like a ruby red grapefruit likeness.Like a sweet ripe fruit with a tart/sourness note.Almost skunky and grasssy like.Fairly complex aroma having the english with it. The buttery tones may stick out more dominatly. Really nice taste,ripe fresh fruit,nice mild sweetness with a stronger bitter/hoppiness.Mild classic dyacytal english taste,spicey floral notes,pretty spicey type bittering. Some what grassy almost skunkyness.Grassy/spicey bittering linger. Very flavorfull with good character for a 5%er.

500ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a soft white head. Smell is diacetyl, herbs, pine, grass. Flavor is interesting. It starts with a slight smokey scotch flavor, it then melds into a mineraly, dry, piney flavor. A medium bitterness and subtle smokiness lingers on the palate. Interesting flavor combo, the bitterness makes htis beer worth it. Also its organic.

Lovely English hop aroma, really citrussy like a very fresh EKG or Fuggles, at flame-out ot later. Not lacking in pleasant sweet malts though, a good balance. Lovely in the mouth, gentle bitterness, pleasant carbonation, pleasantly full biscuity malty sweetness, smooth, and succulent. Lovely ESB taste, perfect balance, lacking nothing. So easy to drink, and really makes you want another. In some ways there’s a bit of Fullers 1845 in it, but this is hoppier. I think I might have a few more of these, and see whether I can persuade myself to bump up one of the scores, as 3.7 seems a bit of an underrate, this is an *excellent* strong bitter.

Relatively strong fruity aroma, but not as strong as other celt ales. Strong bitter taste, with a lasting citrus hops taste. Full mouth feel. Generally a refreshing ale without too much fuss.
