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.

dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, - JAN 28, 2011
Pours amber/red with a offwhite head. Aroma of strawbeery, caramel and resin. Flavour starts with resin and grapefruit then balances it with the fruityness from strawbeeries and the sweet caramel. Nice mouthfeel.

Cask at CASK in Pimlico. Great hit of resiny hops with a sweet finish, some herbaceousness, alcohol noticeable. Nice beer.

Benzai (9433) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle @ home. A bit hazy medium to dark amber color, full sized off-white head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, hops, unfortunately a bit sweaty and a lot of iron. Taste malts, again hops but mainly bitter hops, a bit sweaty and lots of iron. Quite disappointing actually, I expected a lot more. When it warms up a bit it even gets hints of vegetables. Average to medium body, fizzy carbonation. No, unfortunately this is not good at all. Too bad.

kathouse (1185) - Nevada, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Deep orange with a thick off white head. The citrus and grapefruit aromas are thick too. Hop bitterness and resins are strong, but also very good. Hard to believe that the finish is clean. Body is light to medium and the alcohol is balanced. A blockbuster.

Grzesiek79 (3373) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Dobre piwo z wyraznym zapachem grejfruta rozowego. W smaku dosc poteznie wytrawne i bardzo goryczkowe. Powala smak wytrawnosci, slodowosc niewielka i przytloczona przez chmielnosc. Piana spora i bardzo trwala. Kolor miedziany.

blackisle (973) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Hazy to cloudy deep amber, big creamy light beige head, long lasting, good lacing; initial aroma of citrus, bitter orange, some pine, later more malty, bready, caramel, grass, spicy notes; taste medium sweet and bitter, citrus, light peppery; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, mild bitter finish, light citrusy, light malty, herbal notes; overall a subtle and elegant ale, nice.

LuisVida (64) - - DEC 14, 2014
Interesante cruce entre estilos "rojos" con un algo de UK, mucho de IPA USA y un toquecillo como a roja belga. Distinta, muy perfumada y redonda. Cayeron dos botellas.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys, Watford. Exploded when opened and sadly half the contents ended up on the table/ floor. What was left poured a clear, deep amber, with a dense off white head. Aroma of berries, pine and burnt sugar. Resinous hop flavours, with some tinned fruit and grapefruit. Finish was caramel, aniseed and bitter spruce-like hops.
