Citrus dominated IPA with a slight astringency in the first sip that warns you of whatís 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 marmaladeÖ. kinda like Bob Dylan on acid.
Malt: Maris Otter Pale, Crystal Malt & Bamberg Cara Aroma
Hops: Bravo, Cascade, Dana & Kohatu

wheresthepath (1876) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
v284 c5 Keg at the Alehouse, Reading. Pours a dull light amber with a thin white head. Brown bread and pine up front, with lemon and earthiness following. The hoppiness and bitterness of a modern IPA is there but itís muted, and it lacks the clean finish. Itís pleasant enough and easy to drink, but itís rather dull and unmemorable and itís not really an IPA.
