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.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2006
A Mes rate: Cask @ The Devonshire Cat in Sheffield. Not my style but I really enjoyed this. Very hoppy and well rounded, all the usual citric and floral descriptions spring to mind but its jolly good stuff. A very delicate sweetness is what does it I think. Good beer,

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Gravity cask at the Battersea Beer Festival, 7th Feb 2008. The first thing you notice is the very strong lemon aroma. Appearance wise, itís a clear gold. Simple hoppy IPA flavour with a really bitter hop flavour kicking in late for an extremely dry finish. Good stuff.

mjs (5043) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2010 (Re-rate, cask at White Horse on Parsonís Green) Iíve been waiting for a chance to re-rate this beer. The looks were ok: golden and clear. Hops were clearly present in both taste and aroma. The hop characters were fruitiness and pine. Fortunately, hops werenít too dominating. Malty, medium bodied beer was there underneath and created nice balance. Aftertaste lasted long. Old rating: 6-4-7-3-14=3.4

KnutAlbert (6339) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2008
Cask at EBF, Copenhagen. Grassy hops dominate. Not an extreme beer, just a solid, well composed IPA, well balanced between malt and hops.

Gravity cask at the Peterborough Beer Fest Aug 08. Golden yellow with a white head.Lovely hoppy aroma with strong notes of tropical fruits. The flavour is a hoppy explosion of citrus and tropical fruits, on a distinctly sweet base. Long hoppy aftertaste. Very good.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle, from House of Wine, Lincoln. Deep gold, thin shortlived white head and gentle condition. Pleasant fruity citrus hop aroma with a touch of floral honey sweetness, full bodied in the mouth with solid hops and muted malt sweetness battling against the building bitterness which lingers and dominates in the finish
