COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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.

Bottle sample. Slightly hazy yellow color with a small white head. Huge fruity nose - tropical, citrus and some pines. Clean malt flavor with rich hop flavors of NZ hops and earth and med-hi bitterness. Long hoppy finish, medium body and very good.

Kita (1818) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottled, 0.50l. Clear golden color with medium frothy white head, moderate lacing and average visible carbonation. Aroma of light caramel, spicy hops and fruits, amongst strawberry and lemon prevail, while lychee and elderflower also noticed. Taste starts with spicy malt, followed fresh fruity and finished astringent. Aftertaste is long hoppy with spicy note in the end. Full body, thick texture and soft carbonation in palate. IPA rocks...

blipp (7898) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Cask at Rattle with Npodendorf. Pours clear gold with a thin head. Flowery hops, lighter fruity notes, and a light malty sweetness. Pretty good.

agent_persik (660) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 8, 2013
UPDATED: APR 10, 2015 Clean golden color, medium white head. Nice hoppy aroma of tropical fruits and citruses with notes of pine. Crispy and hoppy taste with a lot of citrus and some herbs, long bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Smooth and nicely balanced IPA.

Pours a golden honey color, much lighter than most IPA’s. Small white head. Big floral (roses?) and honey aromas. A perfect balance of malt and hops; neither overpowers the other—and with the current trend of “big” IPA’s, a smoother, balanced one stands out in the crowd. Distinguishable notes of pineapple in the taste. I’d have this one again in a heartbeat.

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2013
From a bottle, almost clear orangy golden brown pour. Aroma of caramel malts, orange and honey hops, with grassy notes. Crisp, light body. Well balanced with moderate sweetness & bitterness. Had this on cask and, for me, it didn’t work. Much better out of a bottle or keg.

This my be somewhat missleading... Last brew of the evening and a bit enebriated.... Nice colour a dosen or so fingers head. (Seeing doubble atm) nice fragrsnce, light bodyed and powerfully hopped, low malt sweetness. A good way to round of the night...cheers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Keg at The Anderson. Pours a light yellow colour, with a thin white lacing. Lots of citrus, lemon aroma. Smooth palate... very well balanced.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle; amber, clear, thin smooth white head; lovely hoppy aroma, all tropical fruits; well carbonated; soft tropical fruit and citrus flavour - orange and soft grapefruit in particular; lots of hops in the dry, moderately bitter finish; incredibly well balanced despite the massive hop presence - it manages to be both delicate and powerful at the same time; really very good indeed.

Probably one of the finest IPAs i have tried, had everything. So well balanced. In my top 5 beers.
