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.

brnandersen (1928) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2014
On tap at Taphouse, Cph. Clear, golden colour with a dense, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, grapefruit, orange peel, floral hops. An earthy note. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and lasting bitter with citrus fruits. Very pleasant.

Beese (1803) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Cask at The Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford. Poured a hazy yellow, with a dense white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of peaches, dough and citrus. Grapefruit flavours, with some brown sugar and tinned fruit. Finish was rich syrup, biscuity malt and resin.

BiffNilsson (222) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2014
Ljusgul kristallklar vätska med medelstor vit krona. Frisk fruktig humlearomatisk doft. Första smakintrycket är den påtagliga beskan som senare övergår i ganska fruktiga toner. En ytterst välbalanserad öl. En av mina första ipa favoriter och den levererar fortfarande.

drpimento (2227) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2014
This is from a bottle it's two years old and I don't think it fared so well. Poured with a small cream-colored sudsy slightly scummy head that didn't last long, no lace and has a hazy medium amber color. Aroma is malt Caramel And hop. Flavor is Like aroma has some tartness upfront which is enhanced by strong carbonation and some of the hops are starting to break down maybe getting oxidized. Adi isn't so good due to over carbonation and the beer starting to turn. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IPAgutten79 (522) - Skui, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2014
Lys farge, som en pilsner. Lavt skum. Masse sitrus og malt. Smaken bærer også preg av disse ingrediensene. I tillegg kommer det noe humle og furu. Medium konsistens. Fin bitterhet i munnen.

tlyx (56) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2014
Tropisk doft. Frisk smak med påtaglig kolsyra. Nästan lagerlik smak, humlen är välbalanserad, de tropiska smakerna antyds bara och spelar andrafiolen. Men beskan tar sedan ett påtagligt grepp om på tungan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ambrosemac (7) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014 does not count
Absolutely in my top five beers available. Of the ’citrus’ age of beers this is up there as one of the best. This is a fresh drink, with good strength and lovely aftertaste. Maybe a little more malt to drag it to the top of the game!

Very tasty IPA especially considering that it is English. A lot of citrus flavors blending nicely against a creamy ground.
