Draught, St. Augustineís. Earthy, citrusy hop aroma. Sticky hop and crystal, maybe a bit too sticky in the finish as well. A fairly plain IPA by todayís standards, it didnít hold my interest at all.

Bottle. [thanks for the extra, after4ever]
Pours a wonderful orange amber with a fine smallish, creamy, off-white head. Fair duration, leaves fine lacings. Aroma has lots of strawberry, grapefruit and pine. Light caramel. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour has a bit of ash, some caramel. Then lots of pine hops and general fruitiness (grapefruit, strawberry, apple, pear). Very dry throughout. Quite aggresive - and very nice!

Bottle from Ledgers Liquors. [021 09]Brilliant reddish copper color with a multi-finger off-white head. Nice aromas of citrus and floral. Medium body with mildly frothy carbonation. Flavor is very hoppy. Floral and citrus. The malt is background. Finish is slightly astringent, lightly burning, but itís not harshly bitter. But itís bitter. Very good.

Huge aroma of pine and grapefruit, with detectable malt. Beautiful copper amber color with an off-white head that stays and lightly tries to lace. Medium mouthfeel, burst of mixed hop, followed by strong malt. However, the malt comes and goes quickly, as this is all about a hop finish. Creamy with a bite. Relatively mild carbonation. It might get better than this, but not often.
