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
