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.

Leighton (10483) - 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!

Tmoney99 (10411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus and sweet aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid drinkable brew that exceeded my expectations.

Maria (10125) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2013
It’s hazy golden with a creamy head. The aroma has lovely notes of fruity/citrussy hops with a pleasant malt base. The flavor has a light sweetness and a refreshing light bitterness, and the notes are citrus, fruits malt, light caramel, and the finish is pleasantly dry and slightly bitter with notes of citrus. Very straightforward and uncomplicated to drink....
