A pale ale with a fusion of bittering hops and a wonderful three hop finish. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

A really well balanced IPA with nice floral notes of hoppiness which is the dominating characteristic of this beer, though there also is a subtle sweetness, too. One of my favorite IPAs.

BeerViking (2683) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Cask gravity at the Twickenham Beer Festival 2014, amber with a lasting thin head and a dank hopsack aroma. Palate is lightly sweet malt with a big hop flavour overlay, but green rather than bitter. Unusual and tasty.
