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.

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 (1366) - 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 (10713) - 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.

In bottiglia all’O Connor; una buona IPA, ribevuta in cask all’Open mi è piaciuta meno

niquillis (1703) - 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

phredrik (1012) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - NOV 19, 2011
Cask @ The Wharf, Aalborg. Clear golden pour with a bubbly White head. Aroma is mainly citrus focused American hops, a sharp zesty lemon touch, unripe pineapple and orange. Taste is bitter, very hoppy. Still citrus, orange and pineapple. Also has a malty feel, basic malts and a hint og breadiness, the malts also give a large sweetness. Slightly astringent in the finish.

craftycarl21 (2295) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Draft at Churchkey. Clear, light amber pour with a small fizzy head. Nose holds light lemon, woody tea-like and herbal notes, and some nice toasted malt. Flavor brings more of that nice light citric presence, as well as rosemary and perfume. Smooth and unique; I must say a nicely made English IPA breaks the monotony of US hops quite nicely. Good stuff.

Crit (3534) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2011
Murky yellow,stark white head.Intense bead.Skunky,cat piss nose. A one dimensional bitter palate, no malt to back it up. Waste of time and money
