COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2013
500ml bottle, shared with Caterwaul. Mildly hazy whitish - yellow golden color. Good thin white head, leaves decent lace. Medium body. Very smooth, light carbonation. Finish is more on the dry, clean side. I was very skeptical about this going in, because most English "IPAs" I try turn to to be disappointing to me. But this is actually really impressive, in the way that lighter American "session" IPAs try to be. There is a satisfying floral hop flavor in here that dominates, with some light citrus and lighter pine notes. Hint of lemon. Balanced with a decent bready, lightly toasty malt profile. Nice lightly bitter zesty taste, light sweetness. Just a solid, lighter yet flavorful IPA, English or not.

kerenmk (4092) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle sample after the Stone Vertical Epic tasting at Mastikim. Thanks avrashi. Pours light and hazy golden with white wave. Malty and hoppy at once - lots of pine in the nose - fun. Fresh bitterness, stingy and hoppy. Light body, fizzy, hoppy pine finish.

olsvammel (5928) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle from systembolaget. Fresh and hoppy smell with citrus and fruity hops. Similar taste but milder then the smell, also has a drawn out bitterness. Light malt body and fresh feeling. Nice thirst quencher.

Joakgust (1348) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle, 50cl - Clear golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is spicy with notes of citrus, spices (thyme and rosemary), wheat, hay and wit yeast. Flavor is fruity with notes of citrus, grapefruit, floral hops and hay. Very balanced beer! Don’t know what type of yeast was used for this beer but it feels like they’ve used some type of wit due to the citrusy esters.

Theydon_Bois (16854) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Cask at Wetherspoons, Victoria station. Lightly hazed pale golden, good sized bubbly white head, Nose is hops, citrus, sugar, light pine, grapefruit, orange pith. Taste comprises hops, mango, sugars, orange, red grapefruit. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, some bitterness in a dry finish. I reckon the conditioning of this one wasn’t tip top but it still came out as a very drinkable IPA. Re-rate in due course.

Unde (890) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 4, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Very pale yellow colour and pretty thick head. Aroma is really fresh. There is sweet tropical fruits, kiwi, lemon and grapes. Taste has lots of grapefruits, lemon and some fresh tropical fruits too. High carbonation with medium body. Slightly on the light side of an IPA, but excellent aroma and taste makes up for that well.
