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.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2013 Color amarillo intenso, cristalino, reflejos cobrizo. Espuma muy persistente, totalmente blanca. Qué maravilla. Aroma muy muy cítrico, a lemongrass, Es intensamente amarga pero sin pasarse, un auténtico pepino de cerveza. INDIA PALE ALE. De Jaipur a tus labios. Perfecto maridaje con cocretas de puchero.

Best beer in the world. Ever!!!! I cant believe it's reached Dunsborough in SouthWest , Western Australia. I have been seeing bottles over the last six months but on draught. Yippee I don't have to fly 9000 miles back to Derbyshire. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Moo Bar Penrith. I cannot fault this beer, called in for a couple and ended up on a session, it is so moreish. The bottle is nearly just as good. My current favourite beer by a mile.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2008 Cask gravity at Notts BF 05. Just about my beer of the festival. Intense hop aroma. Pale gold with lasting white head. Citric hop is lovely. Grapefruit. Terrific in mouth and finish is excellent. Some sweetish malt in mouth to balance. Then gorgeous hop finish. Alcohol makes it a tad too sweet. Not that good on day 2 when Haddonsman had it. Re-rate. on handpull at Coach & Wagon, Dronfield. The best pint of this Ive ever had in Thornbridges own pub too. Pure delight in a glass. The hop profile is just perfect for me. I love everything about this beer.

Much is said about this beer. It is all down to personal taste, but this beer is exceptional. Rich juicy citric aroma and floral fruity initial taste, this is a light golden strong ipa ale, with a powerful deep hoppy finish. This ale has won almost every beer award, and justifiably continues too win awards, don’t be put off by some individuals who this beer is not a match for, definitely try this one. If you love this beer its worth trying Marstons "Old Empire" IPA which is similar strength.

Aroma of dill, citrus & lime. Pale golden color with large white head. Very mild hoppy for an IPA but very elegant. Light body with thin texture and average carbonation. Nice IPA to a broad customer base.

Ren och skär njutning från början till slut. Ljus och grumlig till färgen. Doften härligt frisk och full av citrustoner. Smaken även den med stora inslag av citrus och med en beska som rundar av och stannar länge utan att för dens skull bli för sträv. Ett guldkorn!

Well, what can you say, Mark had especially saved this one from the beer festival as i’d seen how highly rated it was here and suggested we could have a go at it later on. It didn’t disappoint, this beer is exactly what i enjoy drinking the most! A mid golden to orange coloured beer with a thick white head. a heady citrus aroma of grapefruits and oranges, followed by a slightly biscuity finish. The taste is very dry, hoppy, with strong citrus fruit flavours, dry, tart grapefruit, lemon and orange, then a bone dry finish. Perfect! (Cask - @ The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).
