Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Previously badged as India Pale Ale.
India Pale Ale (I.P.A.) is brewed with Horizon hops from the U.S.A. giving the beer a dry bitterness, that is reminiscent of a traditional IPA of yesteryear. Strong Bitter Silver Medal GGBF 2004.

Pint at the Boathouse in Wylam. Poured slightly hazy golden colour with a grapefruit aroma. Loads of sharp fruit flavour, refreshing, with a pleasantly astringent finish. A truly lovely beer.

Very pale but surprisingly malty sweet in aroma. Lots of tropical fruit on top tho. And this carries in to the flavour, which is perfectly balanced. As an English IPA this definitely stands out from the crowd. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Newcastle Beer Festival. Pale gold with a thin white head. Hop smell. Lime and grapefruit. Mouthfeel nice and light. Grapefruit. Zest. Had a bit of hop Flower in it. Not a nice surprise. Finish not as bitter as expected.

Poured this one into am English pint. The appearance is golden slightly cloudy with a white head. Aroma is citrus and the flavour is very hoppy with a strong bitter finish. It flows acrost the palate a little oily. Overall I am not a big fan of IPAs but I can say it is a decent one.

[cask at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh] Golden amber beer, with a decent white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma, alongside a tropical fruit aroma – plenty of mango and passion fruit on the nose. On the taste, too – it’s very slick, there’s that sweet caramel flavour combining with the passion fruit and papaya from the hops. The whole things is very creamy, and finishes bittersweet. Nice stuff – would maybe overload the palate after a couple, but who cares? [08032012]

On cask at Cloisters. Pours a light golden with a thick white head. A great passion fruit aroma with caramel and pineapple also. Similar flavours with a dry finish. Moderate carbonation. Lovely.
