An already full flavoured IPA, made with the very aromatic Simcoe hops is then made even bigger by using fresh ‘green’ Target hops infused into the slowly conditioning beer. Designed for those who like their hops as an extreme sport!

jjsint (926) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, Pimlico. Golden, clear with a huge white head. Aroma of a good Chablis, with loads of citrus/piney hop. The taste is clean, juicy and very bitter. Gets more and more bitter toward the finish. Sublime.

DwarfeD (1163) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
Draught at The Harp, London. Hazy golden with a small slightly off-white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite some bitterness with some sweet tones. Pine, grapefruit, caramel, malts and herbs. A great full flavoured IPA.

SlackerMads (1707) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Cask. Clear yellow with a medium sized good lacing white head. Strong green hoppy flavour with some light bready malts in the back. Lots of dried green plants, wood, forest, a good deal of grapefruit too. Medium bodied with some sweetness that is quickly washed away by solid bitterness. Long, long mouthdrying finish. On another day I might have found it too aggressive, but right now just what I need. Soft carbonation. Well made intense dry/bitter tastebud destroyer, but definately a beer to be in the mood for.

Hoppy aroma with golden colour. Very flavourful taste with hops, grass and grapefruit. A very nice beer helped by the addition of the fresh hops.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle thanks to wyzzywyz22. Hazy gold with a thin white bonce. Aroma of hops, pine, citrus. Flavour quite heavy on the malts, biscuit, caramel, some citrus hops. Decent beer but didn’t hit the high notes for me.
