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.

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...

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2012
330ml bottle at Little Dudley House, Dorking. This is a strange one. Doesn’t look or taste like a usual IPA but i thought it was great. Only beer I’ve given a 5 for appearance. Really nice amber and ever so slightly cloudy. No head or lacing. Taste was of clean hops and a nice full after taste of fresh bread.

OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
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.

ladnewton (1762) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
On tap at Jamie’s Italian, Islington, London on 12th January 2013. Amber-gold with lasting white head and lacing. Richly sweet and fruity aroma. Plenty of floral hops in-mouth with some grass and sweet citrus late. Finish remains fruity, but gains maltiness. Zingy mouthfeel.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 8, 2013
Bottle. Golden with white head. Slightly spicy floral and citrus aroma with a pleasant earthiness. Taste is balanced with caramel, citrus, peppery earthiness. Medium body, crisp with a clean finish. A good well rounded beer, probabaly tje best use of english hops in an ipa I’ve tasted

mt_hall (186) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2015
Bottled. A deep reddish amber colour. Clear, with a small off-white head. Sweet aromas, like a traditional English bitter but with red fruit notes too. Flavours are of an English-style IPA: good body at the start, malty, some sweet red/dark fruits, then a very dry, hoppy, bitter (and slightly thin) finish.
