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.

Light fruity and floral hop aroma. No malt or alcohol in the nose. Very light yellow, looks almost like a lager, slightly hazy. Taste is fruity upfront, slightly sweet middle and slightly cool/minty finish with a decent amount of hop bitterness lingering in the back of the palate. Very light bodied and mildly flavored for an IPA, although has the hop bitterness to back it up. Malt is very mild as I like it in an IPA, but this one isn’t anything too special.

ABT_S54 (252) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle served in a Duvel glass. Light orange with a good head and well carbonated. Aroma is citrusy and pine. Hop forward with a balancing maltiness and reasonably dbitter finish. Nice level of carbonation suits the easy drinking nature (and ABV) with a complementary mouthfeel. A very good English IPA.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2015 Tried on tap. Slightly hazy orange/golden colour. Aroma is tropical fruits (pineapple, mango), grass, citrus, grass and biscuits. Taste is citrus, tropical fruits, rose, with biscuity, hoppy and bitter finish. A nicely balanced IPA more on the sweet side than the hopped side. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

One of my favorite IPAs. Always at the best. Well flavored, fruity and herbaceous. Amazing final bitterness that clean your mouth and prepare you to drink another. When you find it drink it
