COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional.
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.

Towey1989 (730) - 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.

mcberko (9754) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
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.

Poured from cask, not sure it was in best condition, and would be better from keg. Rather life less ipa

Taste is medium bitter with notes of grass, grains, grapefruit, biscuit, hay and pine cones. Finishes dry and bitter. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok IPA

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Draught cask at Craft Beer Co. Covent Garden. Rather cloudy appearance, not much aroma. Not much in the way of flavour either, was hoping for a bit more malt body or lifting hop notes.
