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.

Aroma is tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of malts. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, malts, a small hint of hop resin, slightly thin in body and a mix of bitterness and tangy in the finish.

foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2012
Massive aroma or grapefruit and even peaches. Pale, slightly cloudy yellow in the glass. Long finish of hops, you could almost be munching on them raw. Delicious.

VastActiv (5306) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2012
Cask at Kitty’s Helsinki. Colour is golden with some white head. Aromas and flavours are citrus, fruits and hops. Excellent.

brief_smile (110) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Hazy amber, creamy white head. Big aroma of grapefruit, peach and pine. Taste is similar - strong citric notes, biscuity malts, slightly floral. Clean, bitter finish. Carbonation is spot on; mildly oily mouthfeel. Extremely balanced and eminently drinkable. Prefer this bottled to cask.

Mini Keg from Cotteridge Wines; can’t believe I haven’t reviewed this already great example of a USA style IPA, hazy amber pour, fresh hop aroma, high hopped flavour citrus pineapple a winner every time.

jookos (5020) - FINLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle. Orange, yellow. Light haze. The nose is just fantastic. And legendary. A lot of peachy, citrusy hoppy flavors. Some caramel. Some gooseberries. Body is bitter, but with good drinkability. Excellent.

erickok (5024) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 24, 2012
Clean golden body and nice white head. Rich hop aroma, fresh citrus, light bread base. Medium and rich fresh bitterness, smooth drinkable texture. Excellent palate in this one. Well drinkable yet flavourful, like the citrus here. Okay price as well. Recommended! (50cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Grzesiek79 (3805) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Dobre piwo z chmielową nutą. Intensywnie pachnie polnymi kwiatami oraz skoszoną trawą. Piękny wachlarz smakowy od chmieli goryczkowych po aromatyczne. Piana spora z charakterystycznym rondem. Polecam to IPA

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
500ml bottle. Slightly murky, translucent yellow. Fruity aroma of oranges and other citrus fruits Palate: carbonation lingers but is not over powering. A good IPA

Bottle. Golden color with some head. Aroma and taste both have some fruits in it. Nicely bitter taste.
