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.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Bottled 05/01/13. An orange coloured beer with a tiny wisp of off-white head. A sticky aroma of hops and over sweet malts. Decent orangey citrus hopping in the mouth. Malts too sweet again. Nice flavours apart from the sticky sweetness.

berkshirejohn (4971) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012
33cl bottle from Waitrose. Hazy amber with a fast fading white head; resinous hop aroma; thick and buttery in the mouth with a piney hop flavour and a touch of honey giveing some sweetness; the finish is slightly rasping and peppery at first then mellowing to give a sustained grassy bitterness.

Beer4000 (4948) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
330 ml bottle. Clear, dark golden body with a light off-white head. Mild but nice aroma of malt and citric fruit. Flavor is mild as well, soft, sweet light malt with a rather discreet fruitiness and low bitterness. Medium body and moderate in aftertaste. I choose to ignore the fact that this is supposed to be an IPA, as otherwise this is actually a quite nice, clean British style session beer. Nothing extraordinary rally, but tasty and balanced in a modest way with no off flavors.
