Weighing in at 6%, our Anniversary IPA is a joyous celebration of the new world hops Rooster’s helped to pioneer the use of all those years ago. We’ve used seven different hop varieties in total, to create an absolutely belting IPA

660ml bottle, number 149 on cap. Orange amber colour, foamy off-white head leaving lacing and aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, woody pine, hops. The taste is malt caramel balanced nicely against mango, grapefruit, pine, resiny, hoppy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonatioon, dry bitter finish. Very drinkable IPA.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle shared with FaithHealer1. Slightly cloudy orange, thick fluffy white head. Big pungent mango and pineapple fruits, very fresh and vibrant nose. Nice juicy grapefruit juiciness, some blood orange too, but a nice dry biscuity malt streak in the background. Really drinkable and refreshing, great stuff.
