COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - July 2013. Also available bottle conditioned.

Hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Riwaka and Galaxy. Brewed using malted barley and wheat. A surge of pine engulfs the palate while hints of orange and watermelon cascade across a dry and tempered bitter landscape. The finish is long and defined with a whisper of sweetness.

Bottle thanks to swap with minutemat. Thank you sir! Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - mango and papaya with a dry green hop resin thing too. Taste - oranges and apricot with a pistachio thing on the finish. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry tangy texture. Overall - really lovely beer!

jamestulloch (3300) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle. Murky brown body with yeast chunks floating around below a dense off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma of Jelly Babies, peach, grapefruit and pine. Flavour of grass, marmalade, white grape and sweet tangerine. Bitingly bitter. A raw, hoppy IPA that smells and tastes much better than it looks. Another good one from Salopian.

Benzai (12811) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle [from Euro Santa 2015] @ home. Hazy orange color, some yeast residu floating in there, medium to full sized quite long lasting dense almost creamy off-white head. Smell and taste malts, some hops, orangepeel, fruitpeel bitter. Reminds me of brett in a way I don’t like it. Medium body, decent to medium carbonation. Hmm not my kind of IPA or my kind of hops perhaps. Too much orangepeel flavors and aroma.

Cuso (7552) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 9, 2016
Bottle from minutemat as part of European Local swap, many thanks. Hazy orange brown color with thick white head. Very nice citrus hoppy aroma. Extremely hoppy taste of grapefruits, zest, pines, tangerines, light exotic fruits. Long hoppy bitter finish. Nice one.

Pours hazy amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of mellow grapefruit, pine, citrus and mango. Taste is balanced light grapefruit and pine bitter with somewhat abrupt light bitter finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation.

Mjp12 (1371) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2015
This smells, and tastes more like a DIPA than a standard IPA, I has to check the bottle to see the abv. Full of marmalade fruits, with a decent hop influence. Very nice

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2015
On tap at Tap East. Hazy gold colour lasting thin white head. tropical hop aroma. Bit over carbonated. Some sweet mango and passion fruit. Lots of tropical fruit but also a bit too sweet and the over carbonation is too harsh and prickly. OK.
