A triple hopped IPA that packs a whole tepee full of taste! and bristling with flavour from the blend of punchy aroma hops. Honey orange in colour, with aromas of mango and citrus rising to a pleasant and balanced bitterness. A dry finish that leaves you wanting more!

Bottle from Latitude, Leeds. Hazy amber with a small head. Strong tasting and its strength is also evident in its nose, however in both you get a stated enough tropical fruitiness.

Aurelius (4834) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Sweaty, hoppy, tannic mixed hop IPA aroma with some caramel. Brumous orange beer, with a nice lacing. UK pint bottle, average label. Leathery and hoppy up front, moderately sweet, lightly astringent caramel, vegetal hops. Hop bitterness curls up on the top of your tongue. Medium body, clingy bitter wood finish. Oaky all over, from the appearance to the flavor. Proper pint of bitter. Eagle’s Landing Bottle Shop, south of Stockbridge, GA.

chinchill (3589) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2014
500ml bottle served in a small tulip. Clear deep amber with a weak head. Surprisingly mild aroma with relatively little hops. More sweet caramel malts. Mildly bitter aftertaste. O: unique and refreshing but mild PA rather than IPA.. Recommended as such.
