COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled & Cask - Regular.;
Classic strong pale ale with a light gold appearance with a creamy white head which remains throughout the drink. Complex hoppy aroma due to lots of Styrian hops. Delicate fruity malt taste and low in carbonation makes this beer hugely drinkable and sessionable whilst standing out from the crowd.

Clear golden brown. Weak head. Not much of a hoppy taste, overall the flavour is rather flat and disappointing.

Ferris (4988) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Cask - Light citrus and earthy hops with some caramel. Pale gold with a bubbly white head. Light lemon and earthy hops, with a light bit of resinous bitterness. Not bad.

Rune (8484) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2014
Half pint, hand-pulled cask ale at York Tap. Bright copper coloured body under a patchy surface leaving fine lacing behind. Mild smell of caramel malts. Taste follows the nose with brown malts to the fore added by dried fruits. Bittersweet end. Easy to drink and quite alright, however, a rather strange kind of an ipa (York 10.07.2014).

imdownthepub (10646) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with white head. Quite a fruity beer, thickish malt roast, plummy, peachy in character but without the sweetness. Reasonable but not an IPA for me in any form.

Bottle shared with Mr_H a Dark amber beer with orange and peacy flavour however flavour is generally weak and overpowered by astringent hop finish
