COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Regular. Also available bottled.
A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

bartlebier (1807) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle pour@5e Mondial de la Bière, Mulhouse - FR. Clear thin golden pour, UK head. Citrus leaf aroma, lively carbonation bursting forth with fresh zest. Taste can be seconded as a linear "crescendo of massive (citrus) hoppiness", lemongrass and Thai basil herbal edge, forwarded against a crisp biscuit/cracker malt base. NO UK-IPA orange marmelades on the horizon anywhere, instead at best some molecular honey essence. Lingering lemongrass bitterness. A bit heartlessly modern maybe: hard to find real charm in perfectly engineered new wave beers like this, that soon could be brewed anywhere.

Fluxing (317) - POLAND - SEP 4, 2014
Kolor zloty, lekko opalizujace. Piana niska, bardzo gesta, prawie nie opada i bardzo mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie dominuje bardzo intensywna cytryna, dalej slodkie owoce tropikalne i minimalna slodowa zbozowosc. W smaku wytrawne, ale jednoczesnie lekko oleiste, minimalnie zbozowe. Goryczka wysoka, ale krotka, glownie ziolowa, lekko grejpfrutowa. Ogolnie smak jest dosyc malo intensywny i slabszy niz zapowiadal to bardzo dobry aromat. Wysycenie niskie.

@Good Yarn, Uxbridge. A lovely clear golden ale. Thin head. Smell is a little akin to lemon caliphs! Very refreshing. A lovely refreshing beer. Although citrus is prominent it is not overpowering. Very easy drinking...even if it is so strong!

Pours a pale golden colour albeit a bit cloudy. Nice head too. Has a very hoppy taste which is very enjoyable. Only criticism would be the slightly over carbonation.
