The purest spring water drawn from the River Otter is used to brew this traditional 19th Century-style IPA with a bit of a twist. Handcrafted with English floor malts and our very own yeast, we have added five of the US Pacific Northwest’s most citrus-flavored, aromatic whole cone hops to create a new, complex, highly drinkable beer.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madmitch76. Pours a cloudy amber with a small rough off-white head. Somewhat citrusy aroma, but also somewhat greasy. Solid carbonation, carbonation is a little low. Sweet fruit and caramel, the hops are slightly citrusy but aroma-wise they are pretty downplayed. Ends fairly bitter. Not too bad though. 030511

Cloudy light brown beer with an amber hue. No head. Rich malty nose. Low carbonation semi dry palate. Rich malt with slightly seared and bitter orange. The two elements are well balanced. The orange gets richer, marmalade like, sweeter too. Finishes semi dry. Sumptuous flavour and very drinkable.

bhensonb (14178) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Bottle from Sun Devil in Mesa, AZ. Amber color with a decent beige head. Aroma is more darkish roast malt than anything. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is roast malt with a lot of hoppiness. Really gets the sides of the tongue. More astringent than bitter. More floral than citrus. Very tasty thing. No question as to hop level - there’s some burn going on, and it isn’t alcohol. Very glad I am able to enjoy this.

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Bottled, 500ml from Beer of Europe, Norfolk. Hazed amber with white head. Sweet, caramel, toffee malting, quite heavy on the palate, with an over ripe strawberry fruitiness, not as sharp as you would expect an IPA to be. Some aromatic type hops, they struggle a little with the sweet malts, but quite drinkable all the same.
