Iíve had two pints of this IPA now, both in Newcastle and Tilleyís and the Town Wall, fairly smooth and inoffensive but with nice malty, caramel tones. Its never going to set the world alight, but Iíve enjoyed both pints. A great session beer.

Palate - soft carb, thinnish body. Finish - dry, as main flavour with some alcohol
Overall - Itís too boozy for 5.5%
