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.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Straw colour. Nice loose foam. The aroma mixes some strong citrus and papaya with integrated butter, even a hint of pine. Fresh, bitter, piney beer with light diacetyl. Halfway between a hoppy bitter and a Seattle IPA, and a little bit of neither.

brokensail (12890) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Hazy golden color with a white head. Hop profile is herbal and slightly floral with a slight hint of citrus and grass. Fairly dry nose with just a bit of bread and toasted malt sweetness. The flavor is only midly sweet, too. A bit of bread, some cracker notes, and an okay hop profile. Light bitterness of citrus peel with a light grass flavor to go along with the floral and herbal hop flavors.

Theydon_Bois (12590) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Cask at Wetherspoons, Victoria station. Lightly hazed pale golden, good sized bubbly white head, Nose is hops, citrus, sugar, light pine, grapefruit, orange pith. Taste comprises hops, mango, sugars, orange, red grapefruit. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, some bitterness in a dry finish. I reckon the conditioning of this one wasn’t tip top but it still came out as a very drinkable IPA. Re-rate in due course.

Koelschtrinker (12448) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Intensiver Hopfenantrunk und weiterer Verlauf, die Bitterkeit ist zurückhaltend und auch zum Schluss eher schwach ausgeprägt. Dazwischen sehr blumig, leider aber zu trocken. Nett, aber nicht besonders! 9/11/12/10//10

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.
