Cask @ Live and Let Live. Light golden color with a medium white head. The nose is big fruity mango, pick-and-mix sweets, fruit leather, peaches. The taste is light syrup with loads of summer orchard fruit flavors. More mango and some pineapple. Grassy hop finish. Lip-smacking. The body’s a bit syrupy, soft carbonation. Overall, a very good west coast-inspired English IPA with plenty of bold flavors.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011
Cask, gravity, at 34th Bedford Real Ale and Cider Festival. Gold. Citric aroma: grapefruit and mango or melon. Thick grapefruit taste and a bitter finish. I really don’t like this sort of beer, which is becoming very common. And I don’t like the fact they spell ’tranquillity’ wrongly.
