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.

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.

Tmoney99 (11224) - 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.

Koelschtrinker (11151) - 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

imdownthepub (10768) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2006
Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest 06. Orange golden with white bubbly head. Ahhh, you just new this was going to be good as soon as it was poured. The buzz was going around that this was good and to get in quickly, and I was certainly not dissapointed. Citric hoppy, orange zesty notes with a fresh dustiness to the hops. A gentle base carrying the bitterness and more hops, hops, hops. The beauty of it all had me drifting off, thinking of how IPA came about, the Empire, the Jewel in the crown, which was India and particulary The British Redcoats, for whom it was brewed and Rudyard Kipling who documented it with his poetry.<!-- br --> When the arf made Soldier goes out to the East.<!-- br --> E acts like a babe and drinks like a beast.<!-- br --> And e wonders because e is frequent deceased.<!-- br --> Ere e’s fit to serve as a Soldier.<!-- br --> Serve as a Soldier, Serve as a Soldier, Serve as a Soldier.<!-- br --> A Soldier of the Queen.<!-- br --><!-- br --> If you’re cast for fatigue by a sergeant unkind,<!-- br --> Don’t grouse like a woman nor crack on nor blind;<!-- br --> Be handy and civil, and then you will find.<!-- br --> That it’s beer for the young British soldier.<!-- br --> Beer, beer, beer for the soldier .<!-- br --> . .

Lubiere (10549) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2010
A lightly hazed golden IPA with a thin lacing white and creamy head. Superb aroma of fragrant hops, pinhey and citrusy, with oily qualities, surprising for a British beer. In mouth, a smooth floral hops with silky malt, smooth and refreshing. On tap at ChurchKey DC with ArgoO, Sept. 16 2010.
