COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Special;
What started out as a little bit of fun quickly became the favourite of many die hard ale fans and has become permanent. Probably best described stylistically as a Californian IPA, this beer has all the rich malt and fruit flavours of a Barley Wine combined with the hoppy crispness of a Pale Ale. And as best said by one of its biggest fans, "Hoppiness = Happiness."

660ml bottle @ home. Ordered from Ales By Mail. Aroma reminds me about forest after rain, quite nice look, refreshing taste after 5 days antibiotics cure :-) Pretty easy IPA. This bottle size is the best!

Keg @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a hazy yellow with decent white head. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruits. Taste bears a confident fruity hoppiness balanced by a good malt presence. Easy-drinking for the ABV.

danielecamo (522) - ITALY - OCT 15, 2014
In bottiglia. Aroma erbaceo, seguito da un fruttato ricco di sfumature e molto intenso. Pompelmo, frutta esotica. Al palato tutto trova riconferma, partendo da una base maltata importante che si fa sentire in entrato per poi lasciare spazio ad un abbondante luppolatura con finale amaro e lungo. Ottima!

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle from Bere Buona Birra, Milan; 6.7% ABV
Golden color. Strong herbaceous hop aroma, also piney, menthol, eucalyptus; sweat. Dry mouthfeel, lean body; bready and cereally malt flavor; very strong bitterness, with a strong piney and resiny final.
It delivers the hop promise.

A hop explosion with the fruit hitting you first (strawberries, sour cranberries) followed by a long citrus hop finish. Bring on the hop revolution! Rated by BrewTom

rosenbergh (7364) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 4, 2014
660 ml bottle. 6.7%. BB 07/Oct/2014. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Cloudy orange golden colour with a small foamy white head. Sweet fruity hops, mild bitterness, sweetness, mild yeast (without pouring yeast in) and tropical fruits in the aroma. Yummy! The flavour is delicious tropical fruits, pine and mild grapefruit, mild bitterness, sweet caramel malt and dry yeastiness. Delicious. Fizzy.
