This is our hop monster. Despite a relatively modest ABV for an IPA, this beer delivers an explosion of hops in every sense. A very special beer.

Grass, floral hops, grain malts. Slightly hazy, light gold, spare, frothy, white head. Medium bitter. More floral hops, grass, some wet straw, remains bitter throughout, medium bodied, flat carbonation. Not a bad English-style IPA, nice floral and grassy flavours in aroma and palate. Cask at GBBF16, Olympia.

berkshirejohn (5950) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Cask at the Claude de Vall (JDW), Camberley. Bright amber with a tight white head; citrus aroma; crisp citrus taste with a grainy body; and a sharply bitter grapefruit finish. More of a Golden Ale, and not a bad one either.

Clear bright amber gold colour with a small white head. Clean, sharp hoppy aroma, grassy, citrus and a hint of pine. Initially sweet malt and grapefruit with a long slightly astringent dry bitter finish.

MarkoNm (2300) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - MAY 18, 2015
Pours a clear coppery color, topped with a small white head. Mild herbal hops aroma, some notes of caramel present and slightly fruity. Mild taste, some sweetness in the start, followed by a sharp but moderate bitterness. Not bad, pretty drinkable, although not an IPA. Still nice.

Pours a clear and very light copper with a white head. Aroma is grassy hops. Taste is a light but lasting bitterness. Very drinkable.

Bottle thanks to olliejobbins. Clear dark golden with small white head. Light caramel with milk chocolate going into strong hops with green tea, herbs, lime rind. Light sweet going into strong bitterness. Medium bodied with nice crisp feel. Nice classic English IPA with extra kick.
