A powerful India pale ale, brewed with American Amarillo and Citra hops. A balanced malt sweetness supports the epic hop aroma and flavour explosion.

Garrold (1366) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Clear gold. Thin, but lasting, white head. Fusty, slightly buttery hop. Hint of lemon. Hint of spice. Taste is light bitter. Fresh palate. Fairly zingy. Finishes fresh and dry bitter. Taking into account the length of time Iíve had this, and the initial cost, then this is very decent.

Gravity at Swansea Bay Beer Festival, late August 2014. Didnít really live up to its name - a bright, refreshing golden ale with hints of citrus, but definitely not a hop bomb.

AlbionOakley (31) - Poulton, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Wow, 89p this cost me! Not much to look at, no head at all and a greeny yellow colour. Big hop flavour which is quite bitter and fruity. This reminds me of shipyard IPA

Very pale straw colour with a small white head. Aroma is fresh but indistinct. Flavour is surprisingly intense, I didnít expect the degree of hoppy bitterness - given the exceptionally light colour I was expecting more lager-like flavours. A little pine, too, barely any malt. Very light bodied, moderate carbonation. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

ReV2 (147) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from B&M, pours lager coloured with a frothy head, wheat is obvious, not as hoppy as the name would suggest. A bit of citrus & spice, refreshing though bloaty from the wheat. An English ale trying to be American, not as EPIC or AWESOME as it might like to be but nice all the same.

On tap at a pub in Oxford. Citrus and hops on the nose. Similar taste with some light malts. Nice mellow hop aroma.

Cask at the Tockwith Beer Festival. A golden ale with a white head. Lots of pineapple and grapefruit tropical flavour. Nicely bitter and refreshing. Decent.
