Very pale Maris Otter Malt and traditional English Goldings hops replicate the original pale bitter. Bitterness is robust but well rounded with a spicy peppery finish and heady alcohol esters.

Leighton (11855) - London, Greater London, - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. Pours clear gold with a moderate, white foam head. Tight, doughy malts, moderate floral hops, some plastic. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Fiarly dry to finish, withhay, plastic, dry doughy pale malts. Nah, this is just a pretty weak attempt at an IPA.

AshtonMcCobb (2919) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Appearance - golden with a generous fluffy head. Nose - biscuits and slight butterscotch. Taste - much more than the nose. Biscuits, maybe ginger biscuits in fact, and apples. Palate - medium bodied with a dry crunchy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - yeah, it got better.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle split at Rilesters pad, thanks Steve you inappropriate pervert, 31/10/14. Very lightly hazed golden with a big old white head. Nose is pale malts, light hop presence, citric rinds, straw, bitter orange. Taste comprises more pale malts, caramel, earthy, fruit rinds, bread dough, citrics. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with an earthy bitterness. Ok pale, English IPA - or English pale ale, wouldn’t have classed this one as an IPA myself, doesn’t deliver enough in the way of hops to justify this!

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 1, 2014
50cl bottle pours with a clear copper body that has thin gold edges and supporting an off white head. The aroma offers up big floral hops, some spicy hops, a big spicy oak sensation and mild malt sweetness. The taste is similar starting with floral hops and a touch citrus of and then heading firmly into robust spicy oak. To midway a modest grassiness joins to add some depth. Thinly ringed at the edge is a faint hard candy fruit note that doesn’t take anything away or add anything to the experience. Nice spicy wood flavored bitter hoppy brew.
