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.

imdownthepub (11473) - 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.
