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.

Garrold (1120) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, - MAR 18, 2014
Cask at Friends of Ham, Leeds. Lightly hazy, golden colour. Tidy, white head. Tropical fruit. Some raspberry. Old, biscuity malt. Tasted a little bit tired.

beerfest5 (1136) - 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 (155) - - 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 (1670) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2014

thmsboyd (14) - 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 (407) - 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 (3552) - 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.

ciaranc (795) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2014
500 ml bottlefrom Redmonds. Hazy, cloudy yellow gold, frothy white head, lasting. Floral, perfume, hop nose. Flavour is sweet fruity malt. Light enough, light carbonation, nice finish.

Geokkjer (5595) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014

yngwie (13194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has pine cones notes, some resin and peaches, and a generic fruity sweetness. It’s semi-sweet on the palate, with orange zest, pine cones and resins. A nice bitterness too, lightly flowery. Semi-sweet on the palate, full bodied and nicely carbonated. Lasting finish with a good bitterness. Nice and interesting, but not fantastic in any way. 140608

Bottle 500ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, herbal, floral and hint of grass. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
