Sweet and floral hop aroma with hints of butterscotch. The taste is made up of malt and hops (citrus and grass), but very watery, with a slight dry bitterness. Nice and easy to drink but a bit too thin in the body. A beer suitable to be consumed ice cold on a hot summer day!

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 Cask at 32 Great Queen Street. An IPA along the lines of something like Jaipur, but not up to it in my opinion. Lacked enough malt and hop flavour and felt thin and weak bodied in the mouth. Not bad, just not great either. I expect a bit more hop oomph in an IPA.

Cask, handpull at the Pembury tavern during festival on 10th March 2010. Gold with thick lacing white head. Hoppy and slightly cheesy with a cheddar note. Grapefruit citrus hop. A dry hoppy bitter finish. Deliciously blended flavours and scents.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2010
Cask @ Wheatsheaf Hotel, London. Appears pale lager yellow with an inconsistent white head. Nose of grainy malt and stale hops. Shocking taste to match, overly buttery and just unpleasant. Not good at all and poorly conditioned at the pub.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2009
Cask-condtioned at the Old Fountain, London 13/10/09. Deep gold in colour with a slight white head. Big, citrus and pine hop aroma with a touch of sweetness. Flavour had swee malts, citrus hops and a dry finish, slightly marred by a soapy edge. Good.

evergreen0199 (3020) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2009
Cask at The Hotel Continental, Whitstable. A golden pour with a decent white head on top. Nice hoppy aroma. Nice amount of hoppiness, fruity, floral, honey, refreshing. This is a seriously decent IPA. Drinking it fresh in Whitstable with the fishermans boats bobbing about in the harbour and the sun setting on the horizon. Nice experience.

sm89walt (1945) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2009
Cask - The Bell & Crown, Canterbury. A golden amber beer with a fine but lasting white head - never completely dissipating - leaving a good lacing. Plenty of citrus hops on the nose, some dry straw and grass notes too. Good hoppy body with grapefruit bitterness, sweeter fruits and a hint of a floral quality. Nice lasting piney bitter finish, good smooth and soft palate texture. Well balanced, light yet full of flavour. Easily quaffable and really tasty.
