Thick and fruity IPA with some citrus and big hops upfront. Quaffy, easy to go and highly drinkable. Bit unbalanced end but a classy one in the end.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a creamy head. It’s extremely hoppy in character with citrus tropical fruit flavours abundant. They leave quite a sour aftertaste that lingers and is not overly pleasant.

Bottle, Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Hazy amber pour with a medium off white head. Sweet nose of sticky toffee pud, tropical fruits and piney hop. Flavour offered more sweetness and citrus fruits in tandem with some fairly robust hop bitterness. Smooth, drinkable and really a rather pleasant IPA dear boy.
