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.

This is an reasonable IPA. It had a great nose, but wasn’t hoppy enough for me, needed a bit more punch!

Hammy78 (870) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Purchased at the Dundas LCBO. Pours a hazy amber/ gold, some sedimentary floaties in there. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Fluffy white head, piles of lacing. Smells like orange citrus spice. Tastes brilliantly smooth and slightly bitter, quite refreshing.

hawthorne00 (2823) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle. Gold with a white head. A few floating bits. Floral aroma with grapefruit, some kumquats and honey. Taste is bittersweet, full of fleshy grapefruit with honey and grain. So much grapefruit there’s the impression of sourness as well as bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and alive but there’s not quite enough presence to the malt side to really complement the citrus. Good and very refreshing.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Golden pour with a white head. Aroma is bread, pine and noble hops, and cat pee. Flavor much better with great floral an spicy aspect with a pleasent bitter finish.

7/7/12. Shared at my going away tasting by PorterPounder. Light earthy and tea aroma with nice biscuit and tea flavors as well. Not bad.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2012
On tap. Pale golden yellow, lovely white head which hangs around and low carbonation. Hops and sweetness in the aroma, taste is bitter and citrusy. Become more floral as it heated up. A very good beer.

BitchPls (652) - FINLAND - JUL 5, 2012
Sweet and fruity, delicious aroma. Clear yellow colour with thin white head. Nice drinkability, medium body. Rather pleasant hops for a hot summer day, nothing too overwhelming. Grape fruit, birk tree leaves, grass. A well balanced beer with a nice bitter after taste. Good for thirst also. Refreshing.

berlinoise2go (665) - NORWAY - JUN 27, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Half-inch offwhite head that settles as a thin film with some lacing. Clear, pale golden colour. Lovely hoppy aroma, quite floral, with oranges, lemons, pine, soap and sweat. Medium/light body, soft carbonation. Taste has a solid bitterness, balanced by citrus acidity, mild sweetness and hint of saltiness. Dry, bitter finish. A very refreshing, yet full-flavoured IPA.

Never fails to impress me how good this actually is. Even surprised me how well it stands up to other quality beers. Packed with citrus and tropical fruit flavours but perfectly balanced to be smooth and not harsh. Undoubtedly the best cask beer around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
