COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional.
A true IPA. Strong, hoppy, bitter and delicious. A blend of five hops gives this pale ale a proper punch.

Golden-amber. Hoppy, lightly appley, sweet up front with some alcohol at the back, with a dash of those same hops.

Erasmus_ro (1188) - Alabama, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Cask @ Pembury Tavern, Hackney, London 20/08/13. Pours a light orange with not much of a head. Aroma is semisweet, fruity with exotics. Taste is semisweet. Hop-forward with gooseberry and grapefruit. Turns sweeter on the caramelly finish. Quite full, no carbonation.

jjsint (494) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Cask at Maypole, Cambridge. Golden brown. Strong spice and fruit aroma. Taste is strongly alcoholic with a robust sweet finish. A real find.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Lean and citrusy, this IPA fails to convey freshness even though it is highly drinkable and its resinous undercurrents get charming halfway through the pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the clear golden.
-The aroma is linear and not bright enough.
-Malts convey a few slick honey notes.
-The flavour profile is balanced.
-Having had a pint of Green Devil the day before, I can say this Prometheus, although decent, is quite disappointing in the New World IPA category.

On cask at The Devonshire Arms, Cambridge.

sm89walt (1712) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 2, 2011
Cask - The White Lion, Norwich. Poured with a fine, loose & bubbly white head on a clear golden orange body. Good hoppy citrus profile. Yeast & bitter citric hops on the tongue with a balancing tangerine & demerara sugar sweetness. Medium body, soft palate, medium length softish bitterness. Soft, juicy & very quaffable for the ABV.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2011
Cask handpull at Star Inn Huddersfield. Clear gold lasting white head. Difficult to tell after a hot sausage sandwich. Actually it is quite light in the mouth. Considering the abv its quite easy drinking. Some peach some lemon. Actually a pretty light ipa with decent hop sting on finish.
