Cask, Occasional;
A strong, well-hopped ale. Powerful golden coloured beer with a fruity, citrus nose and flavour. A veritable Hop Bomb, with over a kilo of hops per brewers barrel, it avoids being too bitter with a skillful blend of American hops, making this a beer to be reckoned with. Handle with caution. Silver Medals at Reading Beer Festival 2007 and Peterborough Beer Festival 2006, as well as at SIBA SE Competition 2008 & 2009.

Cask (gravity dispense), Ealing Beer Festival, May 2006. Clear gold colour. Very pungent herbaceous, juicy, floral hop aroma. US hops are obvious in the big grapefruit rush on the palate. Bags of flavour. Quite sharp and bitter, but backed up by juicy fruit and light biscuity malt. Excellent. Almost APA in character.

Cask at Ealing Beer on Broadway, 2006. Clear gold and sparklingly clear. Hop aroma. Sweet, thick malt and plenty of hops to taste. Another hoppy beer from the brewer, this incarnation being quite alcoholic.

Cask@Ealing Beer On Broadway. Liked this one. Sappy/piney orangey hop characters. Slightly sticky (but pleasant) hop characters, yet fairly smooth. Finish is slightly warming and bitter, this is quite close to a true IPA in flavour, quite hoppy indeed.
