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.

Cask at GBBF 2016. Day 1. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. Quite grassy, lightly sweet, with touches of pale bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Fairly straightforward grassy bitterness on the finish, maybe some citrus rind, hay. OK stuff.

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.
