Cask version - really a totally different beer from the bottle version. A great British style cask IPA if on form. Hops are really tasty and fresh, and very English in character: classy and understated.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with 1 finger white head. Dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is apricot and orange with malty undercurrent. Decent mouthful, appropriate for style and abv. Flavour begins with apricot, then bready malt and finishes with a bitter hop bite and slightly resinous. Good example of a traditional British IPA.

Pours a fairly clear amber color, topped with an average white head. Fruity and caramel aroma, mild altogether. Moderately bitter taste, some hoppiness also in the aftertaste. A bit more bitter but still nice.

Big caramel and candi sugar flavors. Hops are somewhat fusel alcohol and a little band aidish. Some herbal tea notes. Not my favorite hop profile unfortunately. Gift from the neighbor for pushing his dead car up his driveway.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Pale amber colour with white head. Aromas of toffee and grass. The taste has toffee from the malts and grassy, earthy, woody hops, creating a good balance between the sweet and the dry. Plenty of hoppy bitterness and a good, almost oily, mouth-feel. A long grassy finish. A really nice IPA from Fullerís.
5/12/14 I have also just sampled this on draught at the Holly Bush in Hampstead. Similar to the bottled variety, but slightly less strong and much mellower, with a less pronounced toffee flavour. Tastes much more like a regular bitter, and none the worse for that. An excellent pint.
