COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Keg and Bottle Conditioned; Regular.

English malt back bone, bittered with Anglo/Euro hops in the shape of Target and Aurora, then dry hopped with the same again. American yeast to keep esters at bay, so all that fruity punch comes just from the hops. Making a clean, bitter IPA with loads of fruity hop character, the way we think it should be.
Like any good IPA this beer will cut through spicy dishes, pair well with fried or salty foods, but best enjoyed in the sun.

JonMoore (1965) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle conditioned - slightly hazy pale gold with slim white head. Aroma of juicy/ sour fruit, hint of barnyard. Taste is quite a surprise and complex, hoppy, bitter, some smokiness, malty, fruity. Medium to light bodied. Moderate carbonation. Interesting.

This is all over the place. Citrus and exotic fruit sweetness from the hops but a funky sharp taste of burnt turf or wood. It’s out there alright. Experimental. Maybe a little too much going on for my taste.

DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2015
500ml bottle, SasStock 2015, Gasthorpe, 12/01/15. Heavily misted blonde with a high and tenacious whip of foam. Aroma of farmyard, dung and dirty flowers; citrus botanicals, chewy Belgian-like wine gum hop. Dirty dishcloth hop like Nuneaton’s own Tunnel and Sperrin; zest of mouldy lemon, waft of pig, dried flowers scattered in orange liqueur. Edgy.

guiroul33 (179) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - APR 12, 2015
Bottle 33cl from Bierhalle De Coninck, @ home. Nice golden color with minimal white head sticking to the sides of the glass. Aroma of mango, pineapple, apple. Taste is quite bitter, medium carbonation. Lacks a bit of something I can’t define, but overall a good IPA.

nihtila (1357) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 16, 2015
24.1.2014. Hieman tunkkainen, jotenkin myös hedelmäinen (passionia taisi olla mukana). Maku alkaa hyvin, jää jotenkin vaiheeseen, vetiseksi.

johndoughty (4157) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle. Bronze and slightly cloudy. Hoppy with some bitterness that lingers.There is also some citrus present which adds to the overall pleasant taste. Another good one from this brewery.

Cloudy amber body, white head. Aroma has caramelly malt, sweetness and light fruity hoppiness. Flavour is bit sweet malt and noticeable bitterness. Dry finish.

Towey1989 (318) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of tropical pineapple, peach and grapefruit with a malty, caramel backbone. Taste of caramel, grapefruit, peach, some pear and pepper plus earthy bitterness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation and a oily texture. A long balanced hop bitterness in the finish. A really nice full flavoured, balanced IPA.
