Cask; Regular. Also avaolable bottled and in keg.

A pale, strong ale. A complex and sophisticated IPA, using assertive American hops. Aromas of resinous pine, orange and just the right level of citrussiness. A dry finish and moderate bitterness make this deceptively quaffable for its 5.4%, so take care!
Colour: Golden
Hops: Simcoe, Chinook
Availability: Year Round, but please book ahead as we have a waiting list for this beer.

Cask at the Craft. Clear gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate with mild fine carbonation. A little creamy malt supports really good hops. Lovely tangy orange and tangerine with glorious tropical fruits, peach and mango and others, even some red berries. Really nice mix of hop flavours. Finsihes semi dry. Infinity was my new Blue Monkey high just a few mins ago but I’m knocked sideways by this - great stuff!

Cask - Floral grapefruit hops. Clear gold with a frothy white head. Dank and cardboard hops. Too bad the flavour doesn’t coin side with the great nose and appearance.
