From the conditioned bottle pours that classic pale gold, with quite violent conditioning to begin with that calms down with time. The nose is lovely, with grassy notes, biscuit & fruit peel. A lush rounded palate citrus & orange peel notes & more yeasty biscuit, then the aggression kicks in with a feisty bitter finish that just keeps stomping away on your tongue. A really full on, all hops blazing modern style IPA.

Sampled at Beerfestival 2006, Horsens. Cask. Pours an unclear yellow beer with a a small offwhite head. The aroma is hops (pineneedles) and some malty sweetness. The flavor follows the nose closely with additional notes of flowers. The palate is bitter. Overall a really nice cask conditioned IPA.

Bottle. Clear golden, 5mm of white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is quite sweet, caramel malts, surprisingly subdued fruity and citrusy hops. Flavour is balanced so nicely, quite a long sweet malty beginning before the hops kick in. Caramel, some resin and pine needles, sweet citrus, more mandarin than grapefruit, some spices. Medium body, refreshing carbonation, yet quite smooth. Lovely IPA.
