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.

Bottle. Golden amber, off white, lasting head. Intense and rich floral hoppy aroma with hints of apricot, citrus and some pine. Pleasant, well marked bitterness. A very nice IPA, challenging the best from the USofA.

On tap at the Bracebridge Heath cricket club beer festival. Pours golden with white head. Sweetish citrus aroma with tropical fruit. Hoppy fruity flavour with a bitter finish.

Pours a pale golden colour albeit a bit cloudy. Nice head too. Has a very hoppy taste which is very enjoyable. Only criticism would be the slightly over carbonation.

Again, huge thanks to Mario from Dva Tona for organizing the tasting and most generously sharing these with us! Pale golden body, big thick white head. Notes of orange, light juniper and cheese... eh, what? A citric hop mix shows up in the taste, however, more along the lines of what they had in Chiron... but the lemon here is more rock candy like... it ends with some light herbs and without much bitterness. Pleasant but their APA is better.

Nice ipa, poured apricot colour with thick creamy head. The aroma wasn’t very full however the taste did the job. Citrus fruits and the slight bitternes at the end. Rate is quite high so I expected to get something a little better.

SlackerMads (1552) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle, best before 2015-07-23. Clear yellow with a medium sized frothy white head. Petroleum, persimmon fruit, flowery, light grassy and green hops, light citrus. Malt profile kept in the back, all hop forward. Medium body, oily texture, soft/medium carbonation, light/medium sweet and medium bitter. Clean and powerful. Long light/medium bitter finish.

pkomar (36) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle into glass, bought @ Centrala Piwna, Poznań. Rich aroma, fruity in the beginning, then resin and herbs are taking control. Pours clear, yellow with nice head. lacing is present, not too big, though. High bitterness, rather dry beer. medium-high carbonation, medium body. Leaves a nice, herbal aftertaste with citrus notes. Solid IPA overall, really enjoyable.

mateuszk (231) - Poznań, POLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Golden, slightly hazy with white head. In aroma hops - more herbal and "green" than fruity, some malty background. In aroma maly base with the sold grapefruit bitterness, the beer is quite dry. I was expecting more from this beer, not bad though.
