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.

Pours a light cloudy yellow with lots of sediment. Clean hop aroma. Taste - earthy, floral and grassy hops up front with a touch of lemon. A moderate sweet malt backbone that balances it quite nicely. A bit of a soapy aftertaste but overall pretty solid IPA. Didn’t know what to expect with an English IPA.

Tijdens proefavond biergilde hoorn. Helder licht goudgeel bier met.een fijne witte schuimkraag. Geur van Citrus en ananas met ook een duidelijke zweem van de hennepplant.smaak is licht bitter met een zuurtje fruitig als grapefruit. Aardig zomer bier niet zoveel Body daardoor.goed door te drinken.

500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours bright pale golden in colour, with nice big frothy white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is English earthy hops, taste is weighted to hops, but this is bitter resin hops. Some biscuity malt. Pretty good, hope to get more beers from Thornbridge!

Ingevara (804) - SWEDEN - APR 4, 2013
Light colored like a lager. Stiff head. Grassy fragrance. Thin body, but with a nice aromatic hoppiness, well balanced with the sugar and the fruit. Nice beer.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 Flaska från Systembolaget. Två fingrar högt skum. Ljust halmgul klar vätska. Okomplex doft av tallbarr och kåda. Utmejslad kristallklar beska utan andra inslag. Lite av en besvikelse.

On draft at The Winking Lizard, Peninsula. Poured a light, cloudy orange with thin white head. Flavor of oranges, grapefruits, grass, and pine. Bitter, dry finish. Thin. Not a bad effort.
