If I had to choose one drink before face a firing squad
Or only allowed to take one drink with me on a desolate
Island, this would be my choice. DELICIOUS!!!

from bottle at mondial 2014, mtl. unclear pale yellow pour with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. lightly grainy and lean maltiness, caramel touch, english bitters - usual suspects, flowers, faint fruitiness - berries perhaps. touch of honey. moderate carbonation, light body - watery, relatively dry grassy-spicy-peppery finish. interesting interpretation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0,50L. Hazy, dark yellow colour with average big, frothy, off-white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of orange, mango, peach, maracuya and similar tropical fruits. Taste starts light sweet and fruity. In the aftertaste flavor became a bit bitter, but as etiquette said "powerfully hopped", I expected much more bitterness, than I get. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Not bad, but doesn’t impressed me.

Bottle [thanks to my Euro Secret Summer Santa] @ home. Clear orange golden color, small white head that diminishes quite quickly. Smell and taste malts, some hops but not too prominently, a modest bitterness and a slight touch of fruit. Medium body and carbonation.

500 mL bottle into a pint glass, from Tesco. Golden and gassy with a short-lived bubbly head. Citrus and grapefruit aroma, quite zesty, attractive. Bitter, dry and fruity with a good malty finish. Tasty. Decent pale ale, pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy gold in appearance with a minimal head. A very strong aroma, hoppy and fruity. This IPA has a crisp, light taste and goes down smoothly.
A delicious ale, although quite powerful. May not suit those without experience in IPAs.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 A great beer, not too heavy and ideal for warm summers. It states powerfully hopped but I would not agree. It falls way short of the OTT American hopped beers that go overboard. This just has the right balance of hops and makes for a perfect brew. Well done St Austell.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another favorite and "gateway" IPA. This is a great balance of proper English ale malts and a frugal yet distinct use of hops, making it what I consider the real English IPA flavour. The beer seems clean somehow, like the ingredients are considerably more natural than those of many other beers.
