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.

andriesradu (461) - ROMANIA - MAY 25, 2014
Pours clear golden with a small long lasting head and good lacing. Fruity, hoppy and sweet aroma. Flavor has a light bitterness with a short duration and notes hops and fruits, acidic in the second part. Ends in a bitter note

ShivanDragon (1441) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
helder gouden met schuimige witte kraag, aroma van hoppen (den en citrus), hooi en stro. smaken zijn matig zoet, redelijk bitter van de hoppen, stevig bier, redelijk fruitig van citrus en den, medium body, glad van textuur, lage co2. en een lange hop bittere afdronk. Goede IPA, neis en smaken zij wat aan de stevige kant met redelijke bitterheid.

martijnomg (7) - Stadskanaal, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2014 does not count
Almost clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mostly pine with some citrus. Taste is more pine. Quite drinkable but not special or exciting at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ruigo (1037) - PORTUGAL - MAY 16, 2014
Shared a 50cl bottle from a local British shop. Pours a pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity - grapefruit and tropical fruits - grassy and citrus. Average to soft carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet with some dryness in the end. Overall, a very drinkable brew.

chimpgibbon (288) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle. Crisp and clean. Great IPA and THE standout supermarket standby! Faultless mash of hop bitterness, fruitiness and long changing finish. Cheese, lemon, mango, bitter lemon. Gorgeous.

Sjohnh (124) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Pale straw colour, slightly cloudy. Grapefruit, pineapple and citrus in aroma and taste. On the light side of medium bodied but carbonation makes it pleasant in the mouth. Not as big a hoppy hit as some IPAs, even some English ones, but very well balanced and very drinkable.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
One of the best IPA’s for everyday drinking I know of, and one that I feel captures the English side of the IPA brewing better than most. There’s fair hoppiness here, but one that works in tandem with the ale yeast and smooth drinking body. A treat, every time.

Very subtle aroma. Very cloudy. Thick tasting. Pleasant hoppy taste. Definitely a grower ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
