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

Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear gold. Big, bubbly, messy, sticky, white head. Buttery malts. Some lemon. Taste is sweet and buttery. Some grassy bitterness. Palate is all of that. Nah. Hard work, buttery and bitter. There’s nothing in between.

AshtonMcCobb (3554) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 6, 2015
On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - floral with light citrus. Taste - interesting oranges with green stalky notes. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - a good ale. Perhaps a touch too sweet and tangy on the finish.

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 (2934) - 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.
