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.

Tasting at the 18th Mondial de la bière, June 8, 2011. Blonde a little hazy, small head. Hop aroma of resinous spruce, hazelnut notes. Taste of hopped nuts and bark, creamy bitterness. Different and original, a pleasant IPA!

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2011
Hazy hay-yellow color, small white head. Aroma of light caramel, lemon, sugar and honey. Very bright and well balanced, albeit a bit pedestrian. Taste is very nice, quite organic, citrusy and hoppy. Sweetness is moderate and the bitterness constitute the majority of the taste.Quite nice on a hot day.

Maybe I’m just not getting it! Here goes another sacred cow. First mouthful, I could have been drinking any of a number of hoppy bitters, Marston’s springs immediately to mind, but wthout the wondrous "Burton Snatch" Bitterness builds slowly as glass drains, but just not enough of anything "massive" as the tag line says. Tried two years ago on draught at GBBF and was hugely disappointed, this was 500ml bottle from Waitrose - thank god it was on offer. I really expected more from the glory boys of UK brewing.
