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.

neuromatt (1218) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2010
Cask at the Great British Beer Festival 2010, served in an English pint glass. Pours clear pale golden with a frothy white head. The head has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lace. The nose is primarily floral, with zesty citrus notes. The flavour is bitter up front with sharp piney hops. This mellows considerably towards the finish. The finish is long and quite bitter, with notes of pine. Throughout, the flavour is a bit honey sweet. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture. Overall, this is a nice IPA in the English style. It has a very nice hoppy aroma and bitter finish. 2010-08-04

Bottle from PIzza Port Bottle Shop. Pours a pale gold with a small white head. Pleasant fruit and citrus aroma. Floral. Near perfumey. Medium body with foamy carbonation. It is very fruity and florally perfumey. It suggests incense. And it’s quite bitter. Extremely different. Extremely tasty.
