COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in Keg & 330ml bottles.
This balanced but powerfully hoppy India Pale Ale is brewed using the finest pale ale malt and three complimentary hops. We use Goldings - the traditional, fresh, sweet, delicate king of English hops. Then we add Bramling Cross, a spicy blackcurranty beauty and finish with a touch of extremely clean fresh Citra hop, for quenching zestines. We think that in balancing these 3 exciting hops we have created a beer of great power yet drinkable harmony.

Bottle, red brown pour with a lightly citrus, marmalade and earthy-herbal aromas. Well balanced, with juicy malt and a firm dry herbal and fruity bitterness.

Tap at Cherry Reds, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt light zesty citrus hop, The flavour is moderate bitter with a light crispy zesty citrus woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A nice refreshing beer but not really a classic IPA. Didn’t really get the Citra at all. I think the idea is to actually throw it into the mash rather than just holding it over the top!

A very easy drinking, sessionable IPA... Clean crisp, slight malt. Gorgeous. Not a great example of IPA, but a great example of a light hoppy beer.

drstrangepint (6) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 Lovely pint from tap. A golden crispness comes from the blend of hops to produce a jolly tasty IPA. Same again barkeep...

Bottle in the South Field, Middlesbrough. Amber with an off-white head. Quite a pleasant grapefruit and caramel flavour. A touch thin, but nicely balanced. Decent.
