Hits the spot perfectly. An Enligh IPA with American hops. Nothing elaborate. Delicious from the cask - a little warm and soapy. Would love to see more of this in English pubs.

Tap. Light yellow, clear. Small white head. Aroma is faint with citrus and pine.
Taste has some pine and citrus. Body is very weak and watery. Aftertaste is very good, bitter with piny overtone. Doesnt make up for the complete lack of body.
