Clear amber beer with a decent frothy head. Aroma is citrus with a hint of hop. The taste is mild citrus with a tangy, hoppy edge to it. Not much body to it. It’s quite nice and I imagine it’d be very pleasant to enjoy a few over a summer’s afternoon.

500ml bottle. Copper coloured, thin head, pine, hints of orange. Once upon a time I found this very hoppy. Not any more, I’ve learned more, but this is still a decent ipa

Clear yellow colour. Aroma and flavour have citrus and floral hops. A well balanced session beer.

thmsboyd (38) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle BBE Feb 2018. Well-chilled. Clear, light amber/golden appearance with a creamy tight white head. Resinous, citrus aromas with slightly bready notes. Perhaps a touch of berry fruits. Initial moderate, marmalade sweetness followed by a dull and lasting bitterness. Medium body with a dry, chewy cereal texture. Average carbonation and a reasonably long finish. A solid if not outstanding IPA, another highly-drinkable Williams Bros brew.

gegwilson (1478) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle from Booth’s in Ripon. Pours amber with a frothy white head. There’s a decent amount of citrus hoppiness to this with a little spice too. Nicely refreshing and really quite enjoyable. Not amazing, but pretty good.

Bue en bouteille de 50cl. Blonde dorée, attaque sur le houblon mais longueur très courte. Pas désagréable mais sans plus.

This was a good beer. Nice taste going down, strong aftertaste that lasts.

jjsint (929) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle from the Blue Glass, Bedford. Yellow gold, small wispy white head with a reasonable amount of carbonation. Muddled but pleasant aroma: grain, citrus, buttered toast. The taste however is a step up: sweet and juicy with a bitter/savoury backbone. Lovely balance. This isn’t an IPA but it’s a good beer nevertheless.

Golden amber colour, small white head. Caramel and pines on the nose. Taste is hops, bitter orange, some malty caramel. Good IPA.
