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."

hawthorne00 (2431) - Melbourne, - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle, 12C. Almost clear pale amber (leaving the cm of sludge at the bottom of the bottle) with a lovely white head that lasts and leaves clumps. Aroma of grapefruit, flowers, peach, honeydew melon, toffee, light bread, a little mint/ eucalyptus. Lightish bodied, very soft mouthfeel despite a fair bit of carbonation. Not really used to having an English beer that seems lighter than it is. Fruity sweet with a little firm toffee and a bit more bread. Citrus flavours - kumquat as well as grapefruit - are distinct and there’s a little pepper. Quite bitter, but the bitterness emerges seamlessly. Excellent.

Keg at Urban Tap House, Cardiff, late August 2014. Excellent IPA; hoppy yet incredibly balanced and quaffable despite its ABV. A.

nou, dat was weer lekker zeg! Aroma of tropics, citrus, malts, grass. Bitterness is just right on the edge where i like it and nicely balancing with the initial sweetness (malt, grapefruit, oranges). Aftertaste long, dry and bitter. Ja dat was weer lekker!
