COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Seasonal, Summer;
A classic IPA. Befitting the tradition, a larger hop charge than any other recipe gives a pleasant hoppiness not often found in beers of this strength.

Cask by handpump at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow - clear amber, thin bubbly white head, mild grapefruit aroma, moderate lacing, grapefruit and toffee flavour, creamy texture, sharp citrus aftertaste

imdownthepub (10123) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Chequers, Oxford. Hazy gold with white head. Quite a perfumed flavour, fruity, there is a grapefruit hint but along with a slightly sicky note. It was ok but not the hop monster I was hoping for.

SarkyNorthener (1787) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2013
Cask@thebell, Walsall. Amber beer, large creamy head. Looks good. Aroma of mild grapefruit. Taste is medium strength hoppiness and a few floral notes. Smooth on the palate, a nice beer,

foxo82 (682) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2013
Hand pulled at Old Thameside Inn, Borough. Headless auburn ale. Watered down toffee. Fine with a meal but unremarkable.

DanielBrown (3771) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Hand pulled at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Cloudy amber, thick heading. Smells like toffee - uh oh. Tastes like a standard, mediocre, toffee malt bitter. Particularly sweet on the finish. Some rainwater in subsequent swigs, which is a small mercy. Massive disappointment. Why is this included in an IPA festival?

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2011
Cask at Elephant and Castle, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a creamy, white head. Pleasant aroma of biscuity malts, crackers, and a bit of grass. Nice flavor, decent balance, medium sweet, subtle dough and toast, grass, flowers. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sticky hop finish, some crispy malts, and a surprisingly long, dandelion and grass bitterness. Decent beer.

JohnRMurdoch (3239) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2011
Cask @ Curlers Rest. Perhaps this is a new beer as it was 4.8% and a bitter rather than golden ale. Vegetable malt aroma. Amber brown colour, reasonable head. Caramel fagash & malt flavour. Bitter fruity aftertaste. A reasonable bitter.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2008
Either a bottle at home or cask at peterborough or cask at the market porter. Alround rating: Pale honey sweet malts, bitter hops, floural sweetness, honey is key.
