Bright clear gold beer, decent but short lived white head. Palate is light and smooth with decent fine carbonation. Sweet malts, bery sweet, a milky kind of sweetness. Hops start with with mildly spicy pine. Mild marmalade, little hop spice. Light semi dry finish. Pretty sweet for an IPA but quite drinkable.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle from Wine And Beer Direct, Halifax. Tawny golden coloured ale with a small frothy head. Strong, but still maintains a notable hoppy character with a citrus bitterness.

Sigmund (5990) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting, thanks to Holmen2. ABV is 6.0%. Clear deep golden to orange colour, moderate to low white head. Nice and "typically English" aroma, toffee, caramel and sourish hops. Much the same elements in the flavour too, but less nice - seems a bit unbalanced. Drinkable, but far from the best IPA I’ve had.
