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.

harrisoni (18232) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle at The Speaker. Hazy amber colour lasting cream head. Some toffee some dusty hop more an English style ipa more an English premium bitter. Some interesting features but not great for me.

blueruin (60) - - MAY 1, 2017
Pours a classic amber with minmal frothy head. Moderate apparent carbonation. Aroma of mushroom, malt and caramel. Caramel-y flavour with some bread, a bit thin, too sweet. Fine, but nothing too special.

FatPhil (15826) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2017
330ml bottle (Godfreys, Harpenden)
Mushroomy nettley aroma, some sweet caramel. Deep orange, brief head. Taste is caramelly, a bit mushroomy. Palate thin and a bit fizzy, some sweet stickiness. Vaguely tollerable, but only because the previous one was crap.

hohops (964) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Appearance- quite a dark amber, clear, a small head which dissipates quickly. Aroma- caramel malt, biscuit, toffee, raisin, honey traces. Taste- brambly fruit, hops, bitter malt, grapes, good malt presence. Might be imagining it but theres some white wine in there too. Short bitter finish.

Heidbummer (556) - SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle. Pours deep amber, surprising lack of head. Soft malty aroma. Triple hopped apparently but the Goldings predominates. Its a rather traditional ale. The abv props it up well, otherwise itd be very ordinary. OK. But just too trad for me.

ManVsBeer (10022) - 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.
