A nicely balanced IPA this one. Burnished bronze in colour, tracing of oily head, bright fresh citrus on the nose, soft sweetness and lingering bitterness in the mouth. Nice stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 This one gets an extra star, as compared to the JCIPA, from the same brewery. Not in appearance, as the copper colour is indeed attractive, but crystal translucent and with a not-too-kosher white head. Aromas of hops, yes! Floral and fruity, but still rather subtle. Nice grapefruit flavours, with a good balance between the bitter and the sweet. Medium bodied and a tad resinous on the palate. The finish is dry, pleasant. Still beats me the reason for name of this beer, but I quite like the product!

Pale gold in colour with a white head poured from gas-flow system. I left this to warm slightly, but even before this there was excellent aromatic hopping to be had. Aromas of gooseberry, slightly resinous wine, pine nuts and a good fistful of long herbal grassiness. Quite astringent in the mouth along with some tingly carbonation prickliness. It then becomes sweetish but not cloying along with mandarin and tangelo citrus. There’s a lovely finish that invites another mouthful. A wee sweety this beer.
