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

Flesje van de brouwerij winkel. Goudoranje, mooie plakkerige kraag. Ruikt bitter grapefruit, smaakt ook zo, mooie balans tussen bitter en zoet. behoorlijk vol bier. Jammer dat ik hier geen krat van heb......

Gravicask (PBF2015, Friday) (6+:7-:4:14=3.5)
Nice resiny hoppy aroma, good proper IPA. Pale orange, small loose head. Big bold body, lots of spicy resiny hops. Nice almost milky pale malts back up the hops - great balance - lovely. Zingy zesty hop finish. Anna concurs - an IPA done properly.

Cask gravity at The Bell Ivychurch. Clear gold lasting white head. Yes hoppy. Yes brewed with a lot of hops. Leafy slightly citric. Lemon. Tart hops. Decent condition. Some bitterness on the finish. Just the right side of citric. Lime. OK though. Lots of hop.

thmsboyd (143) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle BBE: Unknown. Well-chilled. Pours a crystal clear amber body with small, tight, off-white head. Classic malty, English bitter style aroma. Some fresh, grassy hop notes but not very complex. High vanilla sweetness and a medium bitterness; this is where it deviates from a bitter. Light to medium body with a sticky texture, low carbonation and no real finish. Overall this beer is fairly bog standard, but the high sweetness is distinctive and works quite well.

Idiosynkrasie (5179) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, darkest golden to amber colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Piney, hoppy aroma, some pineapple as well, biscuity malty background. Taste is minimally sweet biscuity malty, piney hoppy overtones, a dry, woody touch, even a cautious touch of peanut. Lacks some intensity in taste.

overtheline (98) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2015
500ml bottle pours clear copper with small white head which soon dissipates to cap. Grapefruit and sweet butterscotch in the nose. This has a good, sweet, light maltiness to it, butterscotch again and some tropical fruit. Good mouth feel, medium body and carbonation. Good mid bitter finish with lingering sweet and sour fruits. I think this is a very well balanced beer. Very drinkable.
