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.

AndrewC (321) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. Light brown colour. Smells of tulips. Tastes of tulips. Fizzy but with a soft edge to it. Quite syrupy with hints of fatty roast-potatoes and with an odd almond-like flavour on the finish. Quite nice if a little odd.

Bright clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, airy and a little crisp. Smooth and semi dry malt - sweetish and slightly lagerish. Whispers of spice and lactose. Hops are somewhat in the background but there is a little mellow tropical fruits. Finishes dry with a light spice. Not really an IPA but not a bad beer.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle, pours amber, nose of citrus fruits, orange a hint of grass and floral notes. Malty sweetness with a touch of hoppy bitterness, the smell is better than the taste which is a real pity.

reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus with hints of spice and other fruits. Taste is a malty sweetness up front with a pleasing citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a tasty and easy drinking IPA which would make a good session ale.
