COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our unique version of an ancient style. A style as old as the ocean trade routes of the last centuries Great Ships. Not as old as the equator they had to cross twice enroute, nor as old as the 10,000 or so miles of Di-Hydrogen Oxide and Sodium upon which they sailed, but older than the Circulithium-4 Lentloid that binds the Lupulin Quartnate onto your taste buds. Weird. Think about it. Now stop. OK, go again, now stop. Think again, and stop. But we digress. Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts, this redolent ale will likely float your boat, whatever planet you’re on.

My best rating as of yet. Overall great IPA. Not overly strong, but good balance. Plus, the brew looks great and smells appealing. Time to get a room, lol.

O.K. My on -off relationship with Wetherspoons takes another swing:. Having paid £4+ a pint for some fairly ordinary "craft " beer in Newcastle, we called into the Tilley Stone, Gateshead on the way home for a last one, and they sold me a 355ml bottle of this for £2.50p. Now this is not the greatest IPA ever brewed, but it’s certainly up there in the premier league, ticking all the boxes. Robust, a goodly dose of hops proper ABV: Unless ’Spoons have something I’m more curious about, my default drink there from now on. However, I HATE the commercial description and wish terrible things on the sun-kissed Californian bubble-heed what wrote that shite. And yes, I am a cheapskate.

ianwelby (520) - SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Clear golden beer with a thin head. Not much aroma, just very light sweet fruit. Flavour is quite mellow too with a bit of sour fruit and hop. It’s not especially exciting but it’s rather drinkable.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, citrusy, and resinous, with hints of bread and barnyard. Taste/Palate: sweet throughout; starts crisp, and finishes creamy with a long bitterness. Not perfect, but pretty damn close.
