This English IPA is named after the second ship that took the original IPA to India. Light copper with a nose of fruit and berries, a gentle maltiness in the mouth and a wonderful citrus, lemon-pith bitterness.

The_Osprey (6315) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
Cask at the Great Western, Wolverhampton. As ’Thornbridge Seaforth’. Dark orange, clear, still, creamy off-white head, full thick lacing. Aroma is ginger, spice, a little medicinal. Body is rounded, soft carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is lime, strawberry bubblegum, pot pourri, parma violet, pick n mix, straw, medicinal with some mint. Pretty unique and strange. Quite a potent flavour. I have mixed feelings.

Heldere gouden kleur en een goede kraag. Ruikt fruitig stoffig, orange. Smaakt bitterzoet, stoffig. Beetje kruidig. Beetje dun.

Towey1989 (1804) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. A clear pale amber colour with a frothy white head. Aroma of caramel, grain, subtle butter, slight wood, grapefruit and orange. Taste of caramel, grain, straw, subtle wood, grapefruit, orange, slight lemon and spicy, earthy hops in background. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a boring IPA to be honest, some citrus bitterness which is nice but overall uninteresting, which is a shame. Still solid though.

On cask at Euston Tap, pours a hazy copper with a small off-white head. Nose brings out English hops, some buttery notes, and biscuity notes. Flavour is along the same lines, with a pretty soft palate and buttery notes. Kind of off the mark, especially for Thornbridge. Not great.
