COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2014 (Bottle). The aroma and taste is very hoppy, floral and fruity. In the aftertaste is a nice dry bitterness. A fresh and tasty beer! Very nice!

PotjeBier (2277) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle from De Bierkoning @ home. Pours a clear golden color with a white head, not lasting. Aroma’s: Grassy hops, grain, malty sweet, fruity sour retronasal. Flavor is light sweet & medium bitter. Body is medium. Finishes with a nice bitterness. Leans towards US IPA, but still unmistakably British.

mrkipling (51) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
It’s super-hoppy! Very fresh, citrusy and with a touch of bitterness on the aftertaste. Low carbonation. Would be great on hot summer’s day. Not sure that I love it, but I certainly like it a whole lot.

mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria cask 12oz ($8): Pours an amber colour with barely any head, but plenty of lacing. Aroma is heavily into the citrus hops. Taste is mostly citrus hops. Malt backbone well done. Balance is generally good. This is more hoppy than one would expect from an IPA from the British Isles, but it is nothing close to hopslaughter. In any case, a good sessionable IPA this is. Very good mouthfeel, but I don’t know if the beer is responsible for it, or if the cask is.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 50cl bottle. Pours gold/orange with small bright white head. Decent lacing and fairly lively carbonation. Wonderful tropical fruit in the aroma, grapefruit and passionfruit come through, orange peel, floral notes, slightly sticky sugary sweetness. Taste is another hop explosion, full of zingy tropical notes, citrus tang, light pine resin, lovely smooth biscuity malt backbone to complement the brilliant hops. Lovely medium/full mouthfeel and refreshing bitterness to finish - a great IPA.

ThirstyBird (2391) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2012
Pours a clear golden color. Off white head falls to a thin skim. Nose is a blend of light sweet malt, dry crisp hops. Taste is fairly malty IPA with some mlt hoppiness. Light / medium body and crip active carbonation.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2012
500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Soho, Tampere. BBE 09.08.2012.
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of strong exotic fruits, hops and some sweet toffee. Flavour of sweet exotic fruits, honey, grass, bitter citrusy hops and some grapefruity notes. Medium bodied with a lingering bitter and citrusy finish. Honey tends to smoothen especially the bitterness here too much.
