COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Status uncertain.
A popular new recipe for 2010. English Hops through and through this crisp India Pale Ale. Pale amber using only Maris Otter barley. Dry hopped for an intense spicy hop aroma, sweet citrus fruit notes balance the bitter edge of hops, lingering and moreish.

Cask-conditioned at the Bristol Flyer, Bristol 25/03/2011. Amber with a decent, off-white head. Sweetish malts, orange and floral hop aroma. Flavour had plenty more fruitiness, an earthy edge and hoppy, dry finish. Good.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 23, 2011
Full pint, cask, hand-pulled at Woodins Shades near the Liverpool Street station. Copper coloured body with a loose, white head leaving lacework behind. Moderate aroma of tea-like hops and fresh fruits. Sappy grapefruits in flavour followed by a decent bitter tail. Just the right refreshing and thirst quenching beer after a long journey from Tromsø to London, 19.03.2011.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Cask at the Old Fountain, London. Clear, rich gold pour with a strong, foamy head. Floral hops in the nose with grass and some light toast malts. Quite a bitter flavor, marked by mild citrus, grass, metal and strawe, with light, bready malts. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with earthy hops, green grass, canteloupe or melon, slight toast. Hops really clinging to my throat. Decent.

Cask at the White Lion, Aldershot. Amber with a thin white head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass; fresh hoppy aroma with a touch of honey; big hoppy flavour with some grapefruit and honey, the texture is soft and oily; the finish continues the hoppy theme and is slightly spicy. Very pleasant and very moreish.
