3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
