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.

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 (8983) - 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].

On tap at the mondiale. Greatenglish op aroma, with some impressive light bready malts. Light bitterness, with a doughy malty mouthfeel. The finish was lightly bitter, but quite bright with a good pungent oppy finish. Great uk ipa!

Charlieboy (58) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Tasted from a 500ml bottle looks fantastic but smells very strange, sickly sulphur smell that’s not very pleasant. Fizzy, empty and not particularly exciting.

Pint at Wetherspoons in Reading. Well formed head over a pale golden beer. Light but indistinct citrus aroma. Nice, sweet, citrusy taste with a hint of honey. One of the better English pale beers. Not truly exceptional (I’d still rather have a La Chouffe), but decent.
