COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Bright golden IPA. Produced with lager malt and malted wheat. Aggressively hopped to give a real alpha bite and late hopped with an unusual blend of Bramling X and Amarillo hop varieties. Balanced to appeal to the true "hop head" as well as the adventurous hop novice.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before Dec 2010, drank and reviewed 21 Nov 2010. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard. Pale by name pale by nature, a good golden amber body, slight haze. Huge white head, large bubbles more than a foam blanket type, although as it subsided the bubbles began to get smaller and foam like. Piney hop aroma, with a citrus undertone. The taste is fresh, hoppy (again piney/citrusy) and sharp in the mouthfeel. A fine example of an IPA, British style (not as overly hopped as the US ones).

oh6gdx (20947) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 6, 2011
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Yellowish golden colour with a mediumsized creamy white head, that leaves quite nice lace. A small creamy layer stays pretty much until you’ve drunk it. Aroma is bready malts, mildly wooden notes as well as quite citrus fruity and bitter grassyness. Flavour is grassy and floral hops along with some slight nectar and mild sweet maltyness. Quite balanced and refreshing. Pleasant Golden Ale.
