Hops! Abundant aroma of the fruit of the hop, citrus and fragrant with orange, grapefruit and lemon hints. Powerful Cascade hop aroma through to aftertaste with distinctive bitterness complemented by good strength of malt character. Bright copper colour and a hop feast worthy of a serious India Pale Ale.
Ingredients: Maris Otter and Crystal malts; Challenger, Golding and Cascade hops.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2007 [At Fete de la Biere 2004, Lausanne] An orange beer with a small brown head. The aroma is very flowery with notes of hops and hints of lemon. The flavor is very nicely hoppy and bitter which makes it very dry.

Copper color; rocky head. Very nice hoppy aroma, hop flowers and a hint of orange. Good hoppy body, with some malt in the background. The strong hopping (well aromatic) is present all along the end with a light fruitness. Very good.

bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle conditioned. Aroma of citrus (definitely orange) and malt. Translucent ripe apricot color with a white head that laced on its way to quick oblivion. Starts firm and spicey, quickly thins to orange flavor, moving on to malt. The finish loses the malty sweetness, but it’s not all that bitter. It’s more citrus. Very different ale. Maybe there’s a hint of ginger among the citrus. Very nice.

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Swan, Banbury. Orange Amber beer with thin head. Toffee like flavour, sweet caramel, long bitter finish. Quite well balanced but somehow a little too chemically on the tongue.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 15, 2002
I’m trying to think of the last time I’ve had an English IPA, and am drawing a blank. How odd. Well, if the rest are like this one, then I’ve been missing out. Full floral hoppy aroma. Grapefruit is the dominant taste; the flavor is richly hoppy, complemented nicely by a fair array of hops. Goes down bitter and remarkably crisp. And all this despite being 4 months past the ’Best By’ date.
