Cask at the Snooty Fox, London. Pours clear gold with a slight, white foam head. Jammy citrus aroma, some pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with more jammy citrus, some orange and grapefruit, lightly toasted malts, pine, grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Great condition. Well and resinous to finish, plenty of pine, orange rind, dirt and grass, some grapefruit. It’s a very ’traditional British’ IPA, bu it does have some more progressive elements. Pretty solid effort.
