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.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 2, 2012
Cask at Taps Beer Bar Kuala Lumpur. Very light amber pour. Almost no froth with a little lacing. The aroma is not inviting but the taste is very special. Very smoothly hopped with a very definite hint of honey. Quite a lingering bitterness too! A really lovely beer but not quite a session beer due to the higher alcohol content. Very drinkable, Very Thornbridge! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
