500ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, with a small off-white head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves a little lacing. Pineapple, mild mango and pine needle hops sit over a caramel malt base to create the aroma. Pineapple and pine needle hops up front segue smoothly into a solid caramel malt mid-palate. A touch of mango leads into a nicely bitter resin hops finish. A very enjoyable IPA, this one.

Bottle from the Beer Emporium in Sandbach. Pours golden with a white head. A really nicely balanced IPA. Some sweetness at first with caramel and lots of hops - pine and citrus. Very refreshing and drinkable. Very good.

ok, but not more.. sort of nice aroma at the beginning, but then it just deteriorates. Average bitterness - definitely could be higher for an ipa - kinda nice taste. hoped for more, but it was enjoyable

Smell is well pronounced and not to aggressive. Pours very bright with low head, taste is sweet at first with a hoppy, not too dry, not to feesh finnish.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best examples of New World IPA in the cask/real ale style I’ve tried. Big but not huge, perfectly balanced - loads of Citra and a solid malt backbone. Really the cask version (superior IMO) should be separated from the (still excellent) keg/bottle version.
