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.

Hank1980 (945) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Cask at Trappeze. Pours a cloudy golden with a decent sized white head. Smells of hops, grains, citrus, and sweet malt. Taste is hoppy, more grass than citrus. Maybe just the cask, but there’s a good amount of metal here. Pretty strange and doesn’t seem to subside through the pint. Body is creamy. Overall, an okay example of an english IPA. Glad I tried.
