Had a bottle of this 1 week past its best before. Quite a dry herbal aroma, some grapefruit, pine, sherbet & orange. Taste again is quite herbal. Itís almost like an Orval IPA if there was such a thing. Quite bitter finish. Grapefruit, lemon peel and herbs. Not great but it was slightly past itís best.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2013
Bottled 25/05/13. A golden beer with a big floating island of white head and lace. A very orangey citrussy beer. Lovely and welcoming in the nose and sharper and more bitter in the mouth. The citric fruitiness is very nice and itís an enjoyable IPA.
