COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg & bottle conditioned; Special.

We brew a new single hop IPA every month. Every hop has it’s own character - much like the difference between wine grapes - so we adjust each recipe to bring out the best in each hop and let it’s unique flavours take centre stage.
Delta hops were bred by crossing American Cascade and English Fuggles, combining the earthiness of English IPAs with the bold tropical fruit of American styles.

Keg Half Pint at Holborn Whippet, London in Oct 2012 - Orangey Gold in colour. Very Fruity; orange citrus, tangerines, orange marmalade. Malty; sweet malts, caramel. Hoppy; citrus hops, slightly spicy. Good fruit/malt/hop balance. Sweet orange citrus fruity malty balanced by mildly bitter hops. Very drinkable.

chriso (7365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2013
330ml bottle, BB 20-06-13, at tasting on 18 November 2012. Not sure who brought this one but thanks whoever it was. Slightly hazy mid gold with a modest but persistent white head. Some toasty biscuity malt. Pleasant tangy hops although the Fuggley earthiness perhaps outweighed the US tropical elements a touch too much for my taste. Not their most vibrant IPA but solid enough.

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle at Chriso tasting (thanks Anders37) 18/11/12. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin off white head that escapes to the edge of the glass and forms a light film. Nose is hops, citrus tones, orange touch of mint. Taste follows, light pine, bitter orange, touch of spice. Medium bodied, soft carbonation leading to a bitter finish. OK - nowt special.

Leighton (10987) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours lightly hazy, rich gold with a strong, white foam head. Bready, lightly toasted malt aroma, some hints of ripe citrus and wood. Light to medium sweet flavor, some toasted grass, light bread, hints of plastic, dry berries. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Fairly dry to finish, a bit of dirty grass, a bit more of this plastic character, toasted malts. Meh. Nothing here really gets my juices flowing. Just OK.

Bottle from the Brewery. It pours deep golden with a medium white head. The nose is grass, touch of farmyard, hopsack, touch of spice and some sweetness. The taste is wood, bitter grass, some spice, straw and a hint of citrus, with a very dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent.

On tap at the Holborn Whippet, 3/10/2012. Amber with a decent, off-white head. Aroma of citrus fruit with some grassy hops. Flavour had solid malts, a touch more fruit and a dryish finish. Fine.
