An ale fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hops, hops, and more hops, this ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish.

mR_fr0g (9515) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle shared at Leighton’s place. Many thanks to Paul for this one. Orange / light amber coloured pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is sweet, orange, floral, light pine needle hop, bit weird on the nose. Flavour is composed of light caramel, biscuit, chewy malts with orange rind and pine. Palate is sticky, hop resin, moderate carbonation. Decent ipa.

The_Osprey (6596) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle share at Leighton’s, many thanks to Strokey. 355ml can, 6.5% March 2015. Hazy orange, lightly sparkling, decent foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is mostly Turkish delight and rose with toffee and tangerine. Centennial I’m guessing. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is resinous, dry, astringent floral, orange pith, bitter finish and a little metallic. Good.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can, thanks to Paul. Lightly hazy gold beer, small off white head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Light malts, touch of sweetness. Hops start with smooth pine followed by light hop skunk and a little citrus. Bitterness blossoms strongly in the finish, getting a metallic tang. Not bad, finish a bit awkward.

Franckg (1279) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
Robe ambrée limpide, timide col de mousse. Arômes de houblons très amers. Pamplemousse surtout, zeste d’orange. Un peu poivré, résine de pin, gazon. En bouche, pamplemousse et pin. Un peu d’orange et pêche. Plus seche que fruitée. Amertume tranchante ou le pamplemousse est encore mit de l’avant. L’indice ibu est effectivement élevé. Corps moyen, texture légèrement épaisse. Se boit très bien.

12oz can to cervoise. Pours clear amber, frothy beige head. Aroma of earth, citrus peel, pine wood and caramel malts. Taste is candied fruit, sugar, pine wood, dried fruit, caramel, roasted malts and some floral qualities. Very complex, lots to discover.

cmacklin (882) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2015
355 ml can. Pours a slightly hazy, medium orange with a medium, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Sweet, fruity aroma of grapefruit, peach and caramel malt with a hint of pine. Sweet fruity flavour of grapefruit, peach, mango, grass and a hint of caramel malt with a very dry, bitter, hoppy, resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A very pleasant surprise.

Can. Pours clear dark amber with a big creamy to frothy fully lasting white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is pine, faint caramel and grass. Medium body, medium to heavy bitter, medium sweet but faint malt flavors (could be my cold), average carbo and a very long, very bitter finish.
