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.

bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2009
From the conditioned bottle pours that classic pale gold, with quite violent conditioning to begin with that calms down with time. The nose is lovely, with grassy notes, biscuit & fruit peel. A lush rounded palate citrus & orange peel notes & more yeasty biscuit, then the aggression kicks in with a feisty bitter finish that just keeps stomping away on your tongue. A really full on, all hops blazing modern style IPA.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 13, 2009
Sampled at Beerfestival 2006, Horsens. Cask. Pours an unclear yellow beer with a a small offwhite head. The aroma is hops (pineneedles) and some malty sweetness. The flavor follows the nose closely with additional notes of flowers. The palate is bitter. Overall a really nice cask conditioned IPA.
