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.

Massive aroma or grapefruit and even peaches. Pale, slightly cloudy yellow in the glass. Long finish of hops, you could almost be munching on them raw. Delicious.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 light blonde, slightly hazy color, almost shiny. white head. fruity smells with grapefruit, black currant and also lemon. almost light bodied with noticable carbonation. subtle sweetness. hops more dominating in the finish. refreshing. a fuller body could add to the overall experience.

Cimbasso (187) - - NOV 21, 2014
Sampled from a bottle purchased at Waitrose. Pale golden colour with a white head. The aromas are very hoppy withsome malt flavours. The taste has soft, bready malts and wildly tropical hop flavours of lemon, lime, grapefruit mango and pineapple. Also slightly more earthy and resinous flavours in there. The finish is long with a pleasing bitterness. Quite light-coloured for a pale ale, but taste-wise this is superb; a very well-balanced and original beer with high drinkability.

Gregmcfish (2) - SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2014 does not count
500ml bottle. Surprisingly light in colour with fairly strong carbonation in the glass. Medium sized white head. Promising hoppiness on the nose. Sweeter than expected but very reasonable mouthfeel and good hoppiness. Creamy. Probably an excellent intro beer for the non hop initiated but not quite good enough for the converted.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2014
(bottle) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Fresh and fruity hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, grapefruit and a mildly grassy and resiny touch. Moderately bitter and delicately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a mild carbonation. Dry, soft and almost a bit creamy malty base with a good dash of mainly citric, but also flowery and resiny hops; dry and mildly malty finish with drying bitter hops, fruity and slightly floral notes in the background. 15.XI.14

King_Alex_II (18) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Discrete ans dominating hop taste (as expected from an IPA) that could be a bit more balanced with the rest. Nevertheless great taste (not only for hop-enthusiasts)

Diabobale (225) - ITALY - NOV 11, 2014
Una India Pale Ale molto agrumata. All’inizio è molto morbida, ma ben presto i luppoli prendono il sopravvento, quasi a paralizzare il palato, ma subito l’effetto sparisce lasciando spazio alla dolcezza

Dans le même style que la punk IPA mais plus fin, plus élégant et plus mature. Mais moins explosif.
