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.

Bright clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light, airy and a little crisp. Smooth and semi dry malt - sweetish and slightly lagerish. Whispers of spice and lactose. Hops are somewhat in the background but there is a little mellow tropical fruits. Finishes dry with a light spice. Not really an IPA but not a bad beer.

Leighton (20167) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear gold with a moderate, off-white head. Aroma holds some dry orange and grass, light leaves, very lightly toasted malts. Light to medium sweet flavor with mild bitterness of dry citrus, sun-kissed grass and leaves, a few berries, subtle dry caramel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Faintly dry and sticky finish with some lightly toasted malts, very mellow fruit sugars, faint grass and pine. Its a pretty relaxed IPA overall, but it isnt bad. Decent use of British hops in here.

yngwie (16821) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head of moderate size. Some lacings. The aroma is weak, with a light fruityness. Not much malts to be detected. The flavor has some bitterness, a faint touch of toffee, and a biscuity maltyness. Medium body, quite dry, with a decent carbonation level. Bitter finish. Pretty boring this one, not much IPA-ish. 140110

Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Clear orange to amber color, small off - white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, hops, decent bitterness. Not bad at all but I feel it could be a bit more outspoken. Medium body and carbonation.
