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.

Niksko (325) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a medium golden-orange with some fairly fine off white head. Nose is grapefruit, pineapple, lemon blossom. Flavor is more grapefruit peel, a little spice, lots of biscuit on the finish, fairly clean grapefruit bitterness on the finish. Medium body with lowish, fine and prickly carbonation. Good.

shoulderbroken (1991) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 12, 2014
Tap at Craft Farringdon. Fruity, strawberry and raspberry, jam, malty at the finish. Jam tarts! Nice and crisp. Refreshing, weird beard are good. Just enough graininess in the aroma to not make it sweet.

mzaar (1565) - Varberg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2014
På fat @ Bishop Arms, GA, Malmö. Klar guldfärgad med stort vitt skum. Grapefrukt, citrus och gräs i såväl doft som smak. Aningen tunn och liten kropp. Beska som inte möts upp av någon större mängd sötma.

beerfest5 (1147) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 22, 2014
550mL bottle. Pours a deep yellow gold, large white head, soapy lacing. Aroma of is out and floral hops. Not quite as hoppy as I was hoping after what batch 7 showed off. More traditional English IPA than American IPA. Fine, tasty, strong malt backbone, not remarkable.

tinylightsrecs (178) - - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours pale orange with creamy head. Strange flavour really - a bit contradictory. Fruity hop flavour but also strong grain/bread. Interesting beer but not one I'd call a favourite

Stuu666 (2160) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours pale yellow, nose is light floral fruit, taste is sweet, juicy fruit.

thmsboyd (20) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2014
Bottled March ’14, BBE March ’15. 6.2% ABV. Fragrant aromas of white chocolate, grapes and citrus fruits. Yellowish amber appearance with a tight yet rocky, bubbly head. Light sourness and a heavy dry bitterness to taste. Medium-bodied and moderately carbonated with a long bitter finish

elbernays (471) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2014
500ml Bottle at home. Pours yellow orange. White fluffy head. Dissipates to wispy. Spice, bread, yeast, pineapple, banana. Flavour is ripe banana bread malt base. Grapefruit pithy bitterness. Lasting dry aftertaste. Body is light but full of flavour. This is a good balanced IPA.

wimpyjoe (3780) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle from Spirited Wines, Manchester. Cloudy amber with a bubbly head. Has quite a few influences with pale ale fruit evident, especially in the nose, but there’s overriding grain and wheat in its taste.
