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

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.

Cask @ Angleterre. Clear deep amber, thick white head. Caramel on the nose, fudge. Flavor reminds me of Werther’s original candy, later more fruity hops kicking in. More like an English IPA perhaps. Dry finish. Not really something I get that excited about.

wheresthepath (1705) - 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 it’s muted, and it lacks the clean finish. It’s pleasant enough and easy to drink, but it’s rather dull and unmemorable and it’s not really an IPA.
