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.

In terms of easily available (at least for someone living in North England) IPA this is really one of the best around. Lasting and varied flavours make it deliciously well-rounded, whilst it’s also not too strong to preclude one from drinking it all night. YUM!

Cask @ Gallow’s Bird Real Ale Festival 2012

Pours light orange with a small sticky and bubbly head. Aroma has notes of mild fruits, hops and caramel. Taste is slightly watery with a lot of fruity hops and hints of citrus, grass and malts. Finish is bitter and fruity. Refreshing, easy to drink and tasty IPA.

pete4999 (991) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2012
On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. I was pleasantly surprised by this. Poured a hazy golden yellow with minimal head. Wasn’t quite as citrusy as advertised by the bar, but was really balanced. Not too killer hoppy, but really a simple, drinkable IPA. I enjoyed this a lot, it went well with the burger.

wizardjoe (11) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2012
At its best, this is the proverbial ’tears of the gods’ amongst Sheffield friends. However, only one pub ever stocked it at taste-10 level, on average it is usually around 8 or 9...
