COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve wanted to include another IPA in the range for a while so we picked up with an idea that Stu first mentioned back in 2011, an IPA containing 100% Vienna malt. In contrast to what we wanted with Cannonball this would give the beer a bit more body and also a biscuity/toasty flavour to balance the hops against.

On tap at What’s Brewing. An unclear, orange-golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is piney and citrusy, peel mostly, some malts in the back. A touch of grapefruit too. It’s medium to full-bodied and dry, with a fine bitterness. Grapefruit, citrus peel, resins and a malty touch in the flavor. A good bitterness too, lasting for a good while. Refreshing and quite tasteful, with a very pleasant bitterness level. Drinks easy too. 141031

Tap @ Olutravintola Konttori.
Pours slightly hazy copper color with a medium sized head. Nice piney aroma with resinous hops, some sweet malts and grapefruits. Fruity and slightly sweet malty flavor, grapefruits, some resin and caramel also. Bitter fruity palate, lingering grapefruity finish. Fresh, balanced and very tasty. Excellent.

In short: malty bitter ale.
Pours hazy amber with nice off white head. Moderate head retention, good lacing. Malty, caramel aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some oily texture. Taste is quite malty, caramel, some sweet, and some developing bitterness at the end. Quite enjoyable.

DanielBrown (3966) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Cask at Craven Arms, Birmingham. Really delicious. Brazen gooseberry taste, fool. Sweetness abounds, but in clipped harmony with a lovely twang of the other. A pint weren’t enough.
