COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Status uncertain. Also available bottled.
Highly hopped without bound. Infinity IPA is our interpretation of the new generation of India Pale Ales.
Pale Maris Otter malts combine with healthy quantities of Mount Hood, Challenger, Golding and Amarillo hops to make for an infinitely hoppy IPA.
Refreshing, crisp and sharp with a lingering bitter finish. Infinity IPA is best enjoyed chilled and with a thirst that needs quenching.

McNeillR (1209) - SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Pale clear golden, faded small ringed head. Buttery sweet nose, no major hop vibe. Creamy sweet initial taste, passable bitterness and tinselly flat carbonation. Terse enough finish, no bloody hops here.

Bottle from Seizergh farm shop. Pours golden with a thin white head. Bitter with some fruity hop notes. Mostly citrus with some peppery spice. Some mild tropical notes too. Not bad, but I was hoping for more from this.

Everettm (81) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Light amber with a small cream head. Good layered aroma, but a little lacking in volume, notes of spicy hops, citrus peel, slight woodiness and some juicy tropical fruits. Nice fitting body, but a little under carbonated. Good initial pale malt backbone followed by hop flavour that is dominated by spicy hops and citrus fruit. Sadly the lovely flavours are a little fleeting, however the beer is rounded off by and enjoyably dry and moderately bitter finish.
