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.

Leighton (11299) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2010
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white creamy head. Strong hay and straw hop nose. Some citrusy sweetness starts the flavor, with good malts and fruity bitters. Light bodied with smooth carbonation. Nice, hoppy close with resin and citrus, along with lightly sweet malts backing things up. Really good!

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.

Cask @ EBF, 2008, Carlsberg.
Pours pale yellow with a fine, golden teint. A small, bubbly, white head on top. Aroma has some melons, grassiness and just powerful hops. Great - some biscuity malts as well. Great, dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very hoppy, super dryness, very flowery and fruity. Light, good malty background. Wonderful.

brokensail (11077) - 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.
