COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottle conditioned.
We pushed our small brewery right to the limit to create this bad boy. We selected half a dozen of our favourite American hops, grown in the Yakima Valley, Washington State, and added bucket loads of each. With twice the hop rate of most of our other beers, it really is very hoppy indeed.

GBBF. Cask. Clear gold beer. Little white head. Light dry palate. Bitter resinous hop. Grapefruit, tangerine, touch of pineapple. Grassy bitterness. Dry finish and the bitterness turns marmaladey. Nice English IPA - if this had been put on the US bar it would have blended in seamlessly.

Theydon_Bois (19784) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2013
Cask at the Euston Tap 01/02/13. Hazed golden amber with a thin bubbly off white head. Nose is caramel, light piss, fruits. Taste comprises hops, fruits, sweet sugars, pineapple. Medium bodied, a little chewy, sweet finish. Drinkable OK stuff but a little over sweet, not enough bitterness, balance not quite there for me.
