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.

Cask (Craft Beer Co., RBESG2011 Saturday)
A boring bitter aroma. Looks pretty boring too (orange with a slight head). Boring palate (smooth and sweet). Boring taste (a few citrussy hops, but a bit caramelly and sweet, particularly sweet in the finish) Boring overall. What’s happened to Thornbridge? This is simply adequate, they used to do so much better beers.
