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.

rlgk (10275) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2013
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Hazy golden/apricot beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Lovely fruity hop aroma, pine apples, passion fruit, grapes, floral notes, caramel, citrus, clementines, fresh hops. Hoppy pine apple flavor, passion fruit, mango, fruit cocktail, grassy notes, lovely hoppy fruitiness. Very full bodied to be a cask. Caramel finish with pine apples, mango, clementines, floral notes and some grape fruit. Wonderful!

DanielBrown (3782) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Outstanding aroma - massive tropical beautifulness. Mouthfeel is fizzy like a mythical/historical tram journey down Narborough Road (Leics), conjured from black and white photographs in Fenwicks (Leics). The white art deco tram stop is still there - look for it. Great IPA. Salopian really are a top, top brewery these days. No bias here. They are outstanding.

Lovely aroma, all sorts of fruits and the galaxy hop is definitely noticeable. If this beer was made by one of the "cool" breweries it would be even more popular.

Bottle. Smell is fresh citrus, resinous pine, lemon, apple and lychee. Taste is all modern IPA - pine, citrus, but with a bitter biscuit nuttiness too it that i guess comes from the malted barley. Wonderful combination of hops. Can’t wait to try more from this producer.

Misted copper-orange piled with moussey froth. Soapy, pungent, orange marmalade flavour with peppery heat, husk, mint humbug and honey. Mellow honeyed bitterness finish with a nut husk linger.
