COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Citrus dominated IPA with a slight astringency in the first sip that warns you of what’s about to come and an enduring bitter finish (IBUs 65). Back end taste and aromas of tropical fruits from the New Zealand Kohatu hops with Dana hops giving the sensation of being smacked in the mouth with a jar of marmalade…. kinda like Bob Dylan on acid.
Malt: Maris Otter Pale, Crystal Malt & Bamberg Cara Aroma
Hops: Bravo, Cascade, Dana & Kohatu

rosenbergh (6490) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2014
330 ml bottle. L13168. BB 06/14. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Came out of the bottle like a Vauxhall... or even quicker. Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Homebrew yeast and hops in the aroma. A mess of yeast, sweet malt, biscuits and some hops. The flavour is a bit more enjoyable but still there’s quite a lot homebrew vibes there. Mild bitterness, sweet malt, biscuits and some hops there. So far I haven’t had a pleasant experience from Sunny Republic. Maybe some day...

a_cross (593) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Cask; gold, clear, thin white head; tropical fruit aroma; tastes smooth, some soft citrus - lemon, lime; moderate bitterness; prickly hops; this was a grower: a third of a pint in and I’d written it off as one-dimensional with a ’challenging’ hoppiness, but it opened out into something supple, mellifluous and moreish; more good, interesting stuff from an ever dependable brewery.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
Lighy bronze, very fruity English yeast, mild advertised, quite English, little bit juicy, no sign of the New Zealand hops.

EdKing (1788) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Cask pint in the Lyric. Colour is chestnut brown to amber with a medium white foam cask beer head. Nose is fruity, soft ripe fruit, Vimto, grain malt, tropical fruit, mango and orange. taste is really soft ripe mushy tropical and citrous fruit with some musty grain and slightly fermented fruit. It’s quite sweet and thick on the taste. Not entirely sure about it.

Idiosynkrasie (3585) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Cautious citrusy and slightly soapy hop aroma, hints of orange zest, a touch of overripe tropical fruit, juniper, some biscuit. Taste is bitter hoppy, more herbal than fruity, some juniper. Monotonous, no kick from the (rarely aromatic) hops - bad and boring IPA.
