COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in Keg & 330ml bottles.
This balanced but powerfully hoppy India Pale Ale is brewed using the finest pale ale malt and three complimentary hops. We use Goldings - the traditional, fresh, sweet, delicate king of English hops. Then we add Bramling Cross, a spicy blackcurranty beauty and finish with a touch of extremely clean fresh Citra hop, for quenching zestines. We think that in balancing these 3 exciting hops we have created a beer of great power yet drinkable harmony.

ManVsBeer (9212) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle @ Moon Under Water, Manchester. Deeper amber coloured with a thin head. Has a strength to it, but an overriding crispness and a healthy dryish pale ale texture.

LazyPyro (791) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear orange colour with a thin head. Aroma of pale malts, hops, citrus fruit, berry fruit, some floral notes. Somewhat muted compared to most IPAs. Taste is also quite malty for an IPA, sweet caramel, fruity citrus hops, berries. Soft carbonation, oily texture, nice bitter finish. Nice, but an atypical IPA.

massingasetta (713) - Mnchen, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2016
Drank this at Weatherspoons and it was somewhat unremarkable for an IPA. It does grow on you somewhat but tastes a tip too industrial for my taste buds.

Rhombic (127) - SPAIN - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle, 33cl. Pours reddish amber under a mostly diminishing white head. Floral aromas, some citrus, some toasted barley and wood too. Very nice round flavours, noticeably well-balanced, fruity and with a lingering smooth caramel/leather, some sweetness to compensate for the bitterness. Medium to full body, dry oily texture and nice long finish. Not a typical IPA, but the beer itself is good.
