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.

ruigo (1027) - 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 (286) - 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 (117) - 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.

Beerhunter111 (6881) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig malzig, sehr hopfig. Geschmack leicht hopfig, fruchtig malzig, exotische Früchte.

edsspoon (323) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours straw with a frothy white head that stays throughout the entire drink. Good lacing. Aroma is very fruity with grapefruit, lemon, grassy hops and coriander seeds. Taste is grapefruit, earthy hops, light bitterness, light sweetness, hints of spice. Medium body, medium carbonation, quite dry.

KombatAle (114) - New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
50 cl bottle Another nice ipa from this brewery. Blond pale with white foam. Good hoppy nose. Really soft in the mouth. Is more like a pale ale, very balanced.
