Tried on tap. Slightly hazy orange/golden colour. Aroma is tropical fruits (pineapple, mango), citrus, grass and biscuits. Taste is citrus, tropical fruits, with biscuity, hoppy and bitter finish. A nicely balanced IPA more on the sweet side than the hopped side.

One of my favorite IPAs. Always at the best. Well flavored, fruity and herbaceous. Amazing final bitterness that clean your mouth and prepare you to drink another. When you find it drink it

My hero. A pioneer of uk IPAs . Turned me on to the whole concept of an ipa. The dirge and deception of a Greene king or similar banished forever. A go to beer, a faithful lover. Eclipsed in every category by many beers but not in my heart. Ten years well spent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 Pint at JDW Sutton (Surrey) A: Fairly pale, Initally cloudy which cleared into a moderate haze, moderate retention and lacing. S: Sour apples and citrus. T: A hit of bitterness which kept on giving, some apple and tomato long lingering bitter finish. M: Crisp, low carbonation bitterness which gave a slightly coarse edge. O: A good pint, it required a few sips to adjust to the bitterness but once that was done it was very quaffable.

Bottle bought at the brewery. Deceptive and belies its strength. Plenty of citrus flavours and plenty of hops. The finish gives a kick and the oily hoppiness comes through.

Tastes of citrus, peach, candy, grass, some biscuit.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.

Very nice, crisp and easy IPA. Not as hop-forward as others, also with grassy and grainy notes. Very well balanced. Overall not my preferred IPA style, but really enjoyable nonetheless.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle. First aroma: lime, some biscuit. Pours dark straw, with very feint haze, vibrant carbonation, white fluffy foam, dissipates but laces the glass. More sweet aroma, somewhat nettley, floral. Aroma more subtle than expected, perhaps tame, maybe my bottle been kept too long. Bitterness is refreshing, pithy, but dissipates. Creamy mouthfeel. Just a touch of juicy acidity. Icing sugar sweetness at the end. Dangerously quaffable at 5.9ABV.
