COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 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.

olliejobbins (789) - Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2012
330ml bottle at Little Dudley House, Dorking. This is a strange one. Doesnít look or taste like a usual IPA but i thought it was great. Only beer Iíve 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.

ladnewton (1418) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2013
On tap at Jamieís 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.

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 Iíve tasted

presario (4626) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber with a solid head and aroma of delicious citrus hops. Flavour has a strong Citra note and balancing malt. Some hop bitterness in the aftertaste. Finish s a bit soupy with the hop and malt mix.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle 330ml (and marked down cuz of the cheap arse rip off idiots not selling it in a 500ml bottle). Aroma is of citrus hops, a fair bit of marmalade in thre, spiced oranges too. Appearance it pours with a thin white head thats not worth the effort over a slightly cloudy orange body. Taste is a citrusy spicy bitterness, giving way to an orange flavour. Almost like a marmalade in reverse! It leaves the palate with a bitter finish thats rewarded by another sip. Not a bad beer- shame about the rip off tactics of serving it in a 330ml bottle tho

carldurose (15) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Well balanced is the main point of this beer. The balance between the sweet The Aroma of English Goldings, the bittering Brambling Cross, and the citrus flavours of ...Citra of course! With a pleasant malt finish this is not explosively hoppy but there are enough IBUís to keep me interested. Besides a single hopped very high IBU beer can be a one trick pony. A well balanced flavoursome yet delicate beer such as this can be infinitely more difficult to brew well. Bottle from Cotteridge Wines
