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!

On tap. Minor lacing, foam disappeared quickly. Tart, hoppy as the name implies. High quality is evident, but I’m not sure this is a 98. Lower alcohol content might let the flavor breathe a bit...

TimE (4703) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 22, 2016
Cloudy amber color. Big thick white head. Hugely hoppy nose. Dry hopped to the tits. Amazing astringent, hoppy dry mouth, that for four months old. East coast ipa and just nails it out of the park. Amazing

procraste (443) - FRANCE - APR 15, 2016
Jolie mousse. Parfum très engageant. En bouche l’amertume est nette mais arrêtée tout aussi nettement avec des notes qui évoquent certains légumes ( l’endive, la chicorée, le pissenlit ... ) Un côté "crisp" et végétale donc. On est pas dans le fruité exotique séducteur. Plus tranché ici donc. De bonne facture, bien exécuté, je m’attendais à l’odeur à quelque chose de plus pimpant ...La fin de bouche est magnifique et plus citronnée.

jjsint (1958) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2016
Can from Thirsty, Cambridge. Drunk at home. Golden and ever so slightly hazy, with a lovely crown of white head. Pine, pine and more pine in the aroma. Gummy, resinous, and enticing. Hints of lemon and pineapple. Bitter hop bomb. The taste is unrelentingly bitter while remaining pleasant and refreshing. Long resinous aftertaste. Body is slightly watery but other than that this is top notch. A wonderful IPA worth seeking out.

Can purchased at Les Vignerons in Rome-Italy. Pours clear gold, pretty bright with white persistent foam. Nose: garlic, bit citric, perfume of fresh hops. Fantastic! Mouth: medium carbonation, more garlic, sweet malty feel, orange, super dry clean finish. Lovely!

Intensiv hopfiger, etwas trocken bitterer Antrunk. Noten von Zitrone, süffig, sehr weich. Dabei konstant hopfig bleibend, Nuancen von Alkohol, blumig. Durch die Trockenheit süffig und ohne jede Süße. 10/12/11/11/10/11

330ml can from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Slightly hazy golden colour with a smooth creamy white head. Aroma is citrussy orange/tangerine, grapefruit, and the taste is pretty much the same. Bitter hoppy finish. Smooth with soft carbonation. Very nice.
