500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts fairly well but does not leave much lacing. Floral hops, candied fruits, raisins and some biscuit malt make up a fairly pleasant aroma. Fresh floral hops introduce the beer, leading into a body of biscuit malt with a touch of toffee. Raisins and a mild muscat flavour appear at the finish. A fairly sweet English strong ale, but a nice example of the style.
Pours clear and light golden body with a white head.
Aroma is fairly malty with little caramel. Light citrusy hop presence.
Taste is a mix between sweet malts and citrusy, orange hops.

330ml bottle. Pale gold pour, slightly cloudy with sparkling streamers and a thin, fine white head. Faint and bitter grapefruit on the nose. Wholemeal bread and not-so-sharp grapefruit flavours, with a lingering hoppy bitterness. Sissio (1618) - Orsenigo, ITALY - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle at home. Hazy deep gold with suspensions, coarse cream head. Soap, cream, butterscotch, honey, nuts and sweet citruses. Herbaceous grassy hoppy bitter aftertaste, nutty notes, biscuits, sweet malts, pineapple/peach. RichardGretton (4754) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2017
Bottle. Orangy coloured beer with a strong white head. The aroma is strongly hopped, and the flavour is deeply hopped, dry and bitter. Overall a really nice strongly hopped and dry IPA.

A nice hoppy, bitter, well-balanced pale. Nothing over the top, but delivers the goods.

August 2016 - Bottle share at Chriso’s Sunday Shindig. Thanks! As ’Celt Bleddyn 1075’, 5.6%, brewed at the recently closed Celt Experience brewery. Hazy orange, lightly sparkling, foamy white head, thick lacing. Aroma is floral and flinty. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is minerally, pale malt, floral chalky vibes. Decent enough.

330ml bottle bb12/2016 influxed via BH. - And thus overcooked C-hops doth make harsh APA bitterbombs of us all. - Towering, near-Duvel soap head on fervent microbubbles. Smells like cooked lemongrass and white grapefruit pith over white sugar crystals. Delayed attack of cooked C-hops, harsh citrus on pillowy enough pale malts, finishing on lingering white grapefruit. Somewhere underneath the crass bitters lies buried a subtle fruity ale. Not really sessionable and postmodernly besides the target audience. rlgk (18847) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2016
Chris and Ruth’s Shindig 2016, Sunday. Slightly hazy golden beer with a rich offwhite head. Malty caramel aroma, hay, grapes, floral notes. Malty bready flavor, grainy, some citrus. So so... planky84 (3214) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
