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.

deyholla (5960) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 13, 2011
On cask. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated completely. Aroma had a sweetness form the honey with backing light pine and grassy hops. Flavor began with the same honey sweetness and was joined by a light pine and grassy hop to meld the beer together a bit. Didn’t really work for me.

Jaksmart (357) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2011
Hazy hay-yellow color, small white head. Aroma of light caramel, lemon, sugar and honey. Very bright and well balanced, albeit a bit pedestrian. Taste is very nice, quite organic, citrusy and hoppy. Sweetness is moderate and the bitterness constitute the majority of the taste.Quite nice on a hot day.
