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.

Cask, The Criterion, Leicester. Light gold with a small head. Aromas are hops spices with pear, sweet lemon and lots of hops spices. Flavours are syrupy lemon and spices with a light grapefruit bitterness and spices. Has plenty of hops as befits the style. Very decent.

Cask (gravity dispense)@Beer Hunters
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Very intensive honeyish, resiny, trefoil-flowery aroma. Hoppy, flowery flavor with hints of honey. Very long hoppy aftertaste. I wonder why this stylish IPA is ESB here?

Cask@GBBF2007. Yellowish colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel hops, grassy hops and also some fruityness. Flavour is quite the same, with lots of grapefruits and grass in the finish and aftertaste.

Driftwood6 (214) - USA - DEC 15, 2007
On cask tap at Map Room, Chicago. I didn’t know anything about this beer-- but it was immediately obviously that it was a traditional English style IPA. Very mild hops and a soft palate. A nice change of pace from the plethora of American style IPAs with a more aggressive hop profile.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2007
poured from cask at papago...a clear golden orange with a fluffy white head that lasts all the way down to the bottom of the glass leaving behind a trail of pillowy lacing. aroma is a mild mix of pale malt, lemon, skunky pine hops and some wood. medium body with a creamy cask texture. flavor is similar to the aroma...muted with some hop spice and earthiness and finishing with some floral notes.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2008
Cask at Redlight. Pours a transparent light gold color with a frothy white cap. Smells of light floral citrus and mild hops. Simple and pleasant. The flavor was pretty crisp for cask ale. The hops were fairly abundant, but not overpowering. A little grapefruit was blended in too give it some balance. Really easy drinking nice brew. Im beginning to get a better feel for cask ale and can appreciate these English beers better.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Pours amber with a nice white head. Smells of grass and straw. Tastes dry with some grassy hints and wildflower present. Some lingering bitterness on the finish.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - APR 9, 2009
Bottle. Extremely clear light amber with a little thick lacing yet vanishing head. Fruity & spicy hoppy nose, with a nice sweet malt note. Very bitter beer, perhaps a bit too rough.
