A nice dark copper appearance. A toffee aroma with a strong hoppy taste and a hint of lemon. The hoppy taste stays on the palate long after the drink.

Theydon_Bois (8290) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Cask at CBC Clerko, dry hopped version from CBC Clerko’s 3rd birthday bash, 23/06/14. Clear golden with a moderate light beige head that retains well. Nose is earthy hops, melon, bread dough, perfumed notes, mandarin. Taste comprises floral tones, biscuit, caramel, bitter orange, citric pith. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a bitter rinse. Ok - more English pale perhaps, not really enough hop presence to justify IPA in RB parlance!

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
On tap at the Euston Tap, 26th May 2011. Gentle IPA. Amber, little head. Somewhat fruity and flowery nose & flavour but all too forgettable. Clean and light finish... or is that just because I had a 11.2% beer directly beforehand?

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2014
Cask Pint at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Jan 2013 - Dark Amber in colour. An IPA, brewed with English ingredients = a darker, dryer feel and much maltier than Jaipur. Very Hoppy; very earthy and spicy (peppery) hops, not resinous. Fruity; citrus grapefruit & lemon. Malty; toasty malts, caramel, toffee. Nice hop/fruit/malt balance. Earthy hops over sweet fruity malt base. Tangy, tasty. Very drinkable. Lovely English IPA!

Moebbels (307) - FINLAND - OCT 25, 2013
A slightly cloudy reddish brown body that is topped by an even layer of white foam. Nose has citrus fruits, pine, caramel and spices. Taste is sweetish with a nice bitter finish that lasts well. Coming from a cask this feel almost flat, the palate is fairly rich. The balance between bitterness and malts is pretty good but after a while this starts to feel overly sweet. This could be remedied by a higher carbonation. Overall a nice IPA.
