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.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Appearance is clear shining gold with 1 finger head and good retention. Aroma is herbal, floral hops, very mild, also a hint of citrus. Taste is floral, resiny, and honeylike with an herbal/grassy hop finish. Body is medium, oily, below avg carb, juicy finish very smooth. Overall, a subtle and tasty IPA that is both highly quaffable and exotic.

77ships (3763) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 bottle shared@home: clear yellow with a white head, full-on bitter citrus flavor, flight floral, substantial malt body, very briefly a slight bitterness at first with some minor caramel & caramel, followed by a mouth filling citrus bitterness, definitely English, nice, bottle good until 13.6.2011 ///// Consumed a whole pint of this one @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Served from keg into the appropriate Thronbridge glass. This one was a blast to drink, gulping down like water I get the perfect amount of hops. Highly juicy with lychees, floral and white grapes notes. Sweet like honey & caramel feel with the necessary hoppiness but none of that punishing American brutality, this one is like an old friend you could drink forever. Far better shape than prior & no meanness due to comparisons with their Kipling. This one aptly gets to rise from 3.9 to 4.5 this time around.

Chaseman (50) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2011
Not an overwhelming or strong IPA, but still has a lot of flavor to offer. Leans more towards an English Pale Ale than an IPA. Very refreshing.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2011
In bottle. Pours a clear lemon yellow colour with a decent white head. Nice aroma of passionfruit, peach and malt. Flavour of passionfruit, caramel and barley. Full bodied with fruity hops and bitterness that lingers. Some CO2 prickle. Very nice.

Benzai (8224) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Re-rate January 3rd 2014. Bottle shared @ Van Moll with Stefan and Erwin van Moll. Clear pale golden color, full sized white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma and taste are lightly malts, hops, nicely bitter but also lightly buttery. Dry finish, average body and carbonation. -- Old rating: I believe I had this at Alvinne CBF 2011. Far from my best IPA’s. Though I admit, coming from England it’s not bad. I just miss the strong almost overpowering hops and (grape)fruit in these type of IPA’s. Not bad, but nowhere near my favorite ones. [Original rating: 6-3-7-3-13].
