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 (2659) - Melbourne, - NOV 6, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2015 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. [4.1]

Growler from a keg. Even more vibrant fruit but that softness of the bottle conditioned version is not there and the flavours are a little less well integrated. Still very good indeed. Leaving score as is, but [4.0].

Pedrens (101) - SPAIN - FEB 22, 2015
Bomber. Compartida con Marta. Color melocotón oscuro bastante opaca. Espuma blanca. Aromas en principio bastante resinados, florales y especiados con fondo a malata q evolucionan hacia mas frutales y maltosas al final. En boca las mismas sensaciones...resinosa, maltosa y afrutada, pomelo y mas al final a uva blanca. La textura es cremosa bastante fina y la carbonatacion media. El final amargo donde predomina el cítrico del pomelo. Presenta levaduras en poso. Rica. Recomendable.

Keg at the Bottle Shop tap takeover, London. It pours a rich golden color with a s white head. Aroma is crispy and hoppy with pine and biscuit. Taste is crispy and lightly bitter with grass, pine cones, bready biscuit and caramel. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice IPA

mgajdaczewa (716) - Katowice, POLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Aromat cytrusowy, z lekką ciasteczkową słodowością i nutami tropikalnymi, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku wytrawne, brakuje nut owocowych, słodowość jest wyraźna, goryczka spora, lekko zalega, ale czuć balans, Pijalne i bardzo smaczne. Niby nic, ale jednak super piwo!

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours a hazy orange with a thick creamy head. Aroma is quite sweet with some honey notes but with lots of citrus, resin and zest. Carbonation and body are both moderate. Taste is much like aroma with an aggressive bitter finish that doesn't linger too long. Really good stuff!

androman (677) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2015
1/3 pint keg @ hanging bat, Edinburgh. Body is hazy orange, head is small, white, creamy, mostly lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is fruity, aroma is molasses, caramel, soapy, vegetables. Taste is medium sweet, medium to heavy hoppy bitter, light fruity sour. Full body, soapy texture, soft carbonation. Flavorful refreshing beer.
