COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned. Has been seen in cask.
This IPA is not particularly Pale. In fact it’s a deep ruby red. Based on a modern American style beer from Oregon using Cascade and Centennial hops in appropriate proportions, for bittering, aroma and dry hopping balanced with a strong Crystal malt backbone.

Keg. Red with a white head. Loads of strawberries in the aroma. A little less so in the taste. Some citrus fruits. One of my favorite red ales.

Bottle 6.2% on clearance from Sainsburys. Pours a very dark ruby colour with an explosive creamy head that takes over the glass no matter how gently you pour it! Very malty aftertaste but not unpleasant.

Hermod (2811) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2014
33cl bottle. BB 09/215. Mahogany color, thick, foamy head. Toffeeish, yeasty aroma, floral and slightly fruity hoppy. Flavor has toffee, nutty notes, yeast, slight tartness here as well. Bitter hops, very malty stuff. Heavy and musty. High carbonation. Not sure what to think of this one. Not very refreshing, nor are the hops presenting itself in any good way either.

gegwilson (623) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Keg in the Pleased to Meet You in Newcastle. Poured a slightly murky ruby with a slight white head. Quite fruity at first before a very bitter finish. I love a big bitter IPA, but the finish on this on was bitter in a slightly unpleasant way.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle. It pours a huge, semi-rocky light beige head over a clear, amber colored body. The aroma has a faint puke-like caramel maltyness, with resiny hops and citrus notes. It’s medium to full-bodied with, strangely enough, some warmth. Pleasant carbonation. The flavor has some caramel maltyness, a little sweetness and a balancing bitterness. Pine cones and some resins. Lasting finish with a little bitterness the most evident. A decent one, but far, far from impressive. 140315

Bottle 330ml @ home
Pours clear deep golden/copper with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus and orange. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long citrus finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

jmgreenuk (3580) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at worldbeertaste’s temporary leaving The Hague tasting. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is citrus light hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a big dry hop liqourice bitter yeast grapefruit citrus palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A very decent beer and packed full of flavour. Deserves the rating.
