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.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 Nice refreshing. Could do with a few more hops and maybe a slight increase in bitterness but overall a good pint.

Pint from keg at Coppa Club. Dark golden colour, strong carbonated flavour. It is a tradicional English IPA, so far from the levels of hoppiness and rich aromas of the references

Jashiu (1404) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JUL 19, 2017
Nice fruity hoppiness. Lightly bitter and pretty refreshing. Overall it’s a good old IPA

Bottle at Craft Burger, Cromer, Norfolk, UK. Pours slightly hazy tan with small white head. Not much aroma, some malt. Taste is caramel malt dominated, some fruit and citrus apparent. Palate is reasonably full, not watery, mild bitterness. What is curious is why this is called an IPA. It is more like an Amber ale. Not horrible bit not great.

harrisoni (19159) - 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 (154) - - 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 (16893) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2017
330ml bottle (Godfrey’s, 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.

Ktwse (5307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2017
Pours clear amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of malt, citrys, bread. Taste is sweet caramel, mild bready finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

hohops (1065) - 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 there’s some white wine in there too. Short bitter finish.

Heidbummer (811) - SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle. Pours deep amber, surprising lack of head. Soft malty aroma. Triple hopped apparently but the Goldings predominates. It’s a rather traditional ale. The abv props it up well, otherwise it’d be very ordinary. OK. But just too trad for me.
