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

Keg at Ales and Tails, Twickers, 12/10/13. Lightly hazed golden blonde with a good sized white head. Nose is orange sherbet, lemon rind, hops, hint of grapefruit, apricot jam. Taste comprises orange marmalade, soap, apricot, light floral presence, grassy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, tangy fruit and subtle hop bitterness in the finish. Ok IPA, the soapy notes let it down a couple of digits for me!

Cask conditioned handpump Market Porter London 11/09/13. A copper coloured beer with a white bubbly head. A very nice beer with good citrus and tropiacl fruit hoppiness throughout. The malts do edge towards sweetness which is a bit of a shame. But it’s still well constructed and tasty. Very enjoyable.

330ml bottle bought from Wanstead Tap at Wanstead Farmer’s Market. A heavy, toffee aroma that follows through into the taste. Also getting some caramel and almost liquorice flavour. Hoppy but not excessively so. Astringent.
