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.

imdownthepub (13707) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2014
Keg at The White Horse, Leamington Spa, Warks. Gold to amber with white head. Served very cold. Overly sweet beer but very thin on the palate. There is a damp cardboard character from carbonation. I didnt get much from the hops unfortunately. Pretty dull.

ManVsBeer (8943) - 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.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Bottled 05/01/13. An orange coloured beer with a tiny wisp of off-white head. A sticky aroma of hops and over sweet malts. Decent orangey citrus hopping in the mouth. Malts too sweet again. Nice flavours apart from the sticky sweetness.

jmgreenuk (8401) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 14, 2015
Tap at Cherry Reds, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt light zesty citrus hop, The flavour is moderate bitter with a light crispy zesty citrus woody hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A nice refreshing beer but not really a classic IPA. Didnt really get the Citra at all. I think the idea is to actually throw it into the mash rather than just holding it over the top!

DruncanVeasey (8060) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
330ml from Brum Selfridges. Meek stone fruit, chip shop batter, aniseed nose. Old school IPA dullness bereft of contemporary hop references. Weak honeyed peach, autumnal apple and slate smeared with caramel flavours. Bronze capped finely with lacing off white. An anachronism. What a crushing disappointment.
