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.

caesar (5063) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2012
Bottled @ home. Already had it from tap before a couple of times, but didn’t give it any proper time for a decent rate. Clear pale golden color, short slight off-white head. Aroma of nice citrussy and grassy hop. Slight touch of biscuity malt. Quite bitter taste, slight sweetness in it as well. Soft carbonation. Nice citrussy bitter finish. Easy drinker. Good session ale.

subcombicio (163) - Marghera, ITALY - FEB 16, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 una ipa di tutto rispetto.... gusto morbido ma avvolgente...... si beve facilmente e si sente la mano della thornbridge anche se ultimamente, forse per l’espansione che ha avuto il birrificio e sopratutto questa birra, non la trovo bella luppolata com’era agli inizi.

gEUS (1044) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2012
Pours clear golden with a clear white head. Nose of fresh, flowerly hops. Taste is vivid and bitter (oh yeas, this is way better than a pilsner beer - and it drinks as fluently).. Nice finish of coffee.

dinkle50 (960) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Had this on cask. Gold color, pretty pale and slightly cloudy. Aroma is pretty funky, kind of like smelly feet. Very easy drinking. Mild hopping with a nice bitter finish. Not over powering at all.

TEJA (1286) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2012
Off white semi lasting head. Yellow with a tuch of golden color. Spicy earthy hop aromas. Really nice balanced bitterness with fine hop taste.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2012 Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, faint caramel and some tropical fruitiness with some citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some citrus - piney hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light fruitiness with light caramel, some piney - light citrus hoppyness. Nice IPA - bit too sweet/too much caramel.

EugeneStraver (119) - Nootdorp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2012
20120131 Home (40 cl bottle): A nice yellow coloured beer with a good fine whir foam layer. The aroma is slightly malty, but with a very nice fresh fruity, floral hop which is somewhat citrus-like. The taste begins with a little sweetness, but directly a hopbitter is coming up. The hopbitter ends with a fruity after taste of citrus-like, marmelade and light grapefruit. The body is a littel thin. The aftertaste is very long bitter and fruity. An IPA between American and English style.

Marsiblursi (3001) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2012
(Bottle) Pours cloudy yellow brown with a white head. The aroma holds mild grapefruit, flowers and light yellow tropical fruits. Undertones of white bread, honey and dough. Hints of resin, canned fruits and earth. The flavour is near dry, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Citric, ligt floral, mild fruit and white bready with a touch of honey. The mouthfeel is clean and soft with a light to medium carbonation. Resinous, woodsy and grapefruity finish. Near medium bodied.

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!

tiong (3733) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2012
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.
