COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our double hopped IPA is pretty damn good. Columbus, Cascade and Cluster hops pack this with a real punch of flavour.

Leighton (11623) - London, Greater London, - NOV 27, 2012
Cask at the Union Tavern, London. Pours orange-gold with a fine, white foam head. Some orange and dry pine in here, light sweetness, kind of gritty. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly dirty to finish, earth and pine, mild toasty malts. It’s decent, but could use some tweaking.

Flavour is malt caramel with sweetish fruity mango, hop resins, orange & grapefruit bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, fruity dry bitter finish. Very drinkable IPA.

Theydon_Bois (9636) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Cask at the Lamb, Chiswick, 15/11/13. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering that retains well. Nose is toasted malt, orange, mineral notes, earthy, caramel, light tropcials. Taste comprises orange pith, mineral bite, residual sugars, light tropicals, bread dough, toasted malts, caramel biscuit crumble. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy bitterness and sweet shades in the finale. Decent cask affair, I’d have guessed more towards an APA style wise not having been aware when I rated it !

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle from Mr Lawrence. It pours clear golden amber with a thick white head. The nose is earthy, wood, toast and sweet citrus. The taste is earthy, toast, pine, grass, stewed orange, good deal of bitterness and dough with a dry finish. Smooth and rather drinkable. Pretty nice.

harrisoni (14015) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
Cask handpull at Exmouth arms Farringdon. Clear gold thin white head. Very hoppy and decent for a UK ipa. Bit sweet. Decent though and it disappeared pretty quickly which is a good sign. Hoppy. Grapefruit pink variety.
