COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the amazing hoppy beers being brewed by American craft brewers this beer is heavily hopped, packing it with tropical fruit flavours and aromas. Pineapple, passion fruit & grapefruit are the dominant features of this beautiful amber ale, that has a big strong malt backbone to balance out all the hops.

500ml bottle. Pours dark copper with large foamy head. Light aroma with little depth. Nice heavy citrus hops followed by a little toffee malt and a substantial bitterness. Very high carbonation which makes it much harder to drink - very frothy and bloating, which is a shame for this very nice-tasting beer.

3.6
ForlornHope (536) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle at home. Orange and slightly cloudy with a thin white head. Strong aroma of marmalade and nettle hop. Initial sweetness leads to a bitterness which is somewhat harsh. More tangerine/orange fruit, stinky hop and sweet, syrupy malt. Bitter and astringent finish. Lots of flavour but a little unbalanced for me.

Draft Half Pint at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London in Mar 2011 - Amber-Gold in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous oily and grassy hops. Very Fruity; bitter grapefruit citrus and tropical fruit flavours; tangy and juicy. Malty backbone; toasty biscuity malts, caramel. Bitter citrus fruity and hoppy throughout. Nice IPA! (2011-03-07)

BeerNinjaUK (488) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2017
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Legacy rating. Pours rich orange-amber with deep and lingering head. Aroma explodes with tropical fruits - passion fruit and pineapple in particular, with bags of resin underpinning it. Beautifully balanced but strongly defined in character, sweet biscuit to even out the great bitter hoppiness. Love it!
