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.

superflyguy (429) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 thornbridge must be the best brewery in england. consistantly brilliant. pours a lovely pale sun kissed straw through which you can almost see a wash of the 5.9. in the nose there is a whallop of citrus hops, grapefruit, pineapple, orange and apple. taste is high in bitterness and packs a tropical punch. i detected a slight ashiness which disappointed and stopped it making a really high mark. nevertheless a standout beer.

strongpieman (1580) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Strong floral aroma and clear "cider" color. Nose is stronger than the flavor but the taste repeats the grassy bitterness.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2011
A clear golden colored beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of malts with fruits like citrus. The taste of bitter hops with fruits like citrus. The aftertaste is strongly bitter with some sweet,

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011. Golden color. Flowery and slightly citrusy aroma. Smooth taste with flowery and citrusy hops, honey, some toffee, some hop tannins and smooth bitterness. Great very drinkable IPA. Vanishes almost too quickly from the glass.

NordicV (1293) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2011
På flaska. Gyllene, lätt grulig öl. Lätt vitt skum. Mycket frukt i doft och smak. Annanas och aprikos. Liknar mer en amerikansk IPA än en engelsk.

BeerandBlues2 (10547) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Tap. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and cookie malt, fruity esters, earthy and citrus hops. Flavor is malty with medium hops and bitterness, fruity esters, light alcohol and a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

niquillis (1512) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 On cask at JDW, Stoke. Not usually my style but this is a hop and sweet overdose for an IPA. Very refreshing and different. Enjoyable and more interesting than a normal IPA. 11-1-2015 - Leyton Technical, Leyton
