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.

Tessic (836) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 11, 2012
This IPA poured a cloudy, light yellow colour with a nice, big, foamy, bright white head. Little lacing. to the nose there are scents of corn, perfume, ginger ale, soda water, citrus hops and hay. First sip was smooth with flavours of lemon citrus, grass and hay. finish is lightly bitter with floral/citrus hop flavour lingering.

klippx (6) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2014 does not count
Rather clear, light fresh IPA. Kind of like a neutral lager meets hoppy ale. Thin but rich in foam, great with a good IPA in 500ml bottle n

Amazing example of english pale ale, extremely soft. From draft is special. Fruity citric punch, dangerous drinkable as the style wants.

Very pale. Quite dry. Hops come out as citrus and pine. Some lavender. There’s a bit of soapy and musty aroma. Some peach fruitiness. Overall quite nice.

Swaroga (1256) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2014
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : Piwo jest przejrzyste i ma jasny złocisty kolor. Piana jest średniej wielkości o kolorze białym. NOS : aromat tarty cytrynowej, miodu akacjowego, jałowca, białka, skórki cytryny, grejpfruta, jaśminu. USTA : piwo jest całkiem przyzwoicie gazowane o kremowej konsystencji. Piwo jest umiarkowanie słodkie i umiarkowanie gorzkie. Natomiast pełne w smaku i wielowymiarowe. Nuty słodowe przypominają puszystą tarte i miód. Delikatnie cierpkie i herbaciane o nutach cytrusowych. Gorzkość jest podobna do pestki cytrusowej ale nie aż tak intensywna. Dobrze wkomponowane i stłumiona słodyczą, która w posmaku powraca przypominając mi o posmaku jaki ma sok z trawy jęczmiennej. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest ciekawe i satysfakcjonujące. Nie jest to bomba chmielowa ani nie idzie w nuty karmelowe jak niektóre IPy. Jest lekka i subtelna. Nie jest to najbardziej ciekawa IPA ale, jako piwowar domowy, jestem zauroczony gładkością tego piwa, jasnym i przejrzystym kolorem. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : 0

Fles gedeeld met Rikstar. Goudgeel helder bier met minimale kraag. Aroma is citrus, hop. Smaak is fris bitter met wat fruitigs in de afdronk. Mooi biertje. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
