COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg & Bottled; Special - June to August 2013.
Note: Although the bottle is labelled 2.7%, it’s actually 2.8%, same as ther draught.

The goal was to create a beer with flavour, balance and body at only 2.8%, a Quarter IPA, QIPA if you will. Heavily hopped but with low bitterness this beer pops with notes of mango and grapefruit and is the perfect summer beer.

ManVsBeer (5477) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Keg @ Crown & Kettle, Manchester. Amber with a thin head and packs in plenty of tropical fruit aromas and flavours, however it’s disappointingly weak

bartlebier (2483) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 17, 2015
Keg pour@Tilquin English Beer Festival V/2015. One of many ideal British-style postprandial thin sessioners with a US-inflected sessiin IPA touch: thin toasty biscuit malts diluted to Lady Grey tea consistency, spiked with leafy hops and some airfreshener exotics (bergamot, lime), before returning to a weird UK toastiness.

imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle, 500ml from Good Taste Food & Drink, Crystal Palace, London. Hazy gold with white head. There is a pleasant beery aroma to this along with a fruity hint. The beer is sweetish, tropical, pineapple notes then an autumnal leafy note and a light fungal hint. Decent stuff.

77ships (5041) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2015
Thx! Sampled draft @ Tilquin English Beer Festival 2015. Hazy amber, creamy white. Nose is quite impressive, on par with a DIPA, huge fruity, pine resin, grapefruit, light exotic fruits. Taste & body are both dominated by yeast unfortunetly, creamy bready yeast, sugar, bitter grass,… Yeasty body, masking the rest a bit. Still not bad, nice. Good work still for the ABV, I have had a few better examples.
