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.

Blackfriers. Aroma is tropical fruits, hints at sweet mandarin peel and sweet pale malts, alcohol noteable. Taste is similar not overly sweet but a bit too sweet and alcoholic for what i expected. In a head to head the brewdog punk ipa would win hands down.

Cask@GBBF2007. Yellowish colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel hops, grassy hops and also some fruityness. Flavour is quite the same, with lots of grapefruits and grass in the finish and aftertaste.
