Bottle drank on hols in St Ives. Big ol 1 litre swing top that does not pop when opened. Hazy orange - amber beer with a few white bubbles for a head. Palate is light and smooth with modest fine carbonation. Nice fruity hops, fresh orange and a little tangerine. Whisper of hop spice. Light dry finish. Very good hop fruits but it needed a better, crisper palate to deliver the flavour.

1ltr swing top bottle. Golden brown with a white bubbly head. Aromas are yeasty and a bit funky with toffee and brown sugar. Lemon with mango and hints of pineapple. Spiced oranges with pepper. Flavours are sweet and sour lemon with yeast and dome champagne biscuit character. Base toffee with green apple and candy sugar. Fruity and yeasty on the finish. Some bittersweet pink grapefruit. I imagine this is quite an authentic reproduction of an old IPA recipe but there are better modern versions. Empire Pale Ale by Burton Bridge is a better old style (maybe) brew.

Tropical fruit and mild citrus in the nose, with sweet, not-quite-honey backbone.citrus, resin, earthy. Pours a hazy light golden with a white head and good lacing. Medium sweetness with a heavy but not unbalanced bitterness. Taste similar to aroma, very little of the strength of alcohol comes through due to well brewed and balanced juicy fruity bitterness taking the limelight - backdrop of slight but complex sweetness. Overall enjoyable and very tasty, especially for the alcohol strength.

Slightly sour, yeasty nose with some underpinning lemon and mango. Pours a gently hazy medium gold with a thin head and strong lace. Flavour follows the nose with more of that sourness but adds some balance with some fruity hop notes of papaya, cumquat and a hint of cheese. Finish has a steady bitterness and exhibits more balance as it goes on. Reasonable, but Ive certainly had better IPAs.
