COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.

Orange with an impressive rocky head. Big hoppy citrusy/spicey aroma. Quite light bodied. Big bitter flavour, a little sweet. The finish is long and, you guessed it.... bitter. A very good, no-nonsense IPA.

During a time when IIPAs and IIIPAs are becoming more and more the norm rather than the exception, it is nice to see a beer that stays true to the English IPA style. Pours a very light copper, somewhat brilliant with golden highlights, good head with decent retention and fine lacing. There’s a distinct fruitiness that jumps out in the aroma which is slightly floral with a very light dose of citrus. There’s also a slight ester from the malt that comes across as biscuit and light tobacco. It tastes lightly sweet which quickly dissipates into a moderately dry finish. Very satisfying and drinkable. They’ve kept the body light enough to enjoy more than one pint. There’s a chewy malt and fruity yeast characteristic which is unmistakably English. A beautiful beer and a classic example of the style.

Got a 6 of this while visiting my brother in Chicago. Filled with strong hops (if not a little artificial). A very good beer for its price.

Beautiful hazy golden colour, full floral hop aroma. The flavour matches the aroma with lots of floral sweetness and a lingering hop bitterness. Beautiful stuff. I order it by the case but wish it were more easily available here in Nottingham.

Often the best beer available at bars, but nothing special. Pretty generic IPA.

Fruity, floral nose. Citrusy, hoppy, sweet caramel, bread loaf, and toffee for flavors. Pretty good. Nice, well balanced mouthfeel.

Pours a bright orange/gold with a huge head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass. I detected grapefruit and pine notes. Has just the right amount of bitterness for an IPA.
