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.

Cybion (136) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Can, 330 ml, from an offie in Ambleside. Pours clear amber with minimal head and lots of small carbonation bubbles. Tiny bit of patchy lacing. Sweet and heavy on the nose with strong caramel malt, caramelised pineapple and citrus notes up front, with some forest hints behind alongside spices and maybe pepper. Slight tangy vinegar edge to the whole thing, which is a shame. Taste is moderately sweet and fresh with prominent orange and grapefruit followed up by biscuity malt and mild lingering bitterness in the very dry finish. None of that vinegar from before thankfully. Carbonation is moderately strong so this is a bit of a tingler on the palate and the medium body and sticky texture means this hangs around for a while. (I should note that the best before date on is listed as "May 17" on the can - I’m not sure whether this means may 2017 or may 17th of this year so I could be reviewing a beer past its’ sell-by here, which might explain the aforementioned vinegar on the nose.)

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle, Tebay Services, M6. Amber pour with a middling white head. Fruity, hoppy nose and flavour alongside notes of caramel, biscuit, wood and malts. Perfectly drinkable if veering towards the uninspiring corner of the dancehall.

mR_fr0g (9515) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Cask at the brewpub. Clear light orange golden coloured pour with a thin white head. Aroma is odd damp hay, spicy pepper, earthy hedgerow berry and a hint of caramel. Flavour is composed of sweet and tangy orange rind, little hay, caramel, tangy lemon citrus. Palate is quite sweet, tangy, lowish carbonation. A little rough round the edges. Lingering damp hay.

jamesie1857 (1962) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2015
On cask at Black Bull, Coniston - Cracker this one. Deep amber body, thick lacing white head. Nose is all kinds of fruit punch with citrus, berries and tropical fruits there, Great syrupy mouthfeel helps the bittersweet taste, king lasting finish. Superb.

weordie (874) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Pours copper with a thick foamy head. Aroma is yeasty, nuts, bread, some cinnamon and a little sprinkle of citrus. Flavour is very very bitter at the start with a sweet finish, not the best IPA I’ve ever had but a nice beer none the less.

McNeillR (2233) - Edinburgh, 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.
