This beer is initially dry and bitter. Full flavoured and complex marmalade / aniseed notes follow which then leave a lingering bitterness on the palate. A classic in its style.

ForlornHope (549) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear, light bronze colour with a thin head. Pungent aroma of skunky hop, malt and floral orange. Taste is very bitter. Lots of flavour: sweet juicy malt, more orange marmalade and a dry, herbal bitterness. The label suggests aniseed and I do not disagree. Long, rich finish, ending dry. A great beer on lots of levels and recommended.

SilkTork (5946) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
JDW, Southampton - Admiral. Lovely citric flavours in a malt full of character. If all hoppy beers had such a great malt base it would make all the difference. Bags of flavours, baby of character, lovely drop to drink.

YUM, if you like IPAs that are citrusy and have a lingering taste you’ll certainly enjoy this, I did :)

On cask at the Guildford Arms. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - oranges and a touch of mountain herb. Taste - fresh oranges and lemons with a nice sweet fruitcake note in the background. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. GGood balance. Overall - enjoyable ale.

ManVsBeer (11499) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2014
Huddersfield Beer Festival. Blonde with a small head and a hoppy nose. It’s quite dry with its dominant hop taste that has some very small fruit notes.

downender (9063) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars, Bristol 7/7/2014. Golden, with a decent, white, head. Hedgerow fruit, with a touch of apricot and tangerine, biscuity malts and a lingering, bitter, finish. Enjoyable English drinking.

Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. KEGS. Cask. Almost clear paleish gold beer, small bubbly white head. Palate is light and dry and a little crisp. Nice carbonation. Light pale malt, semi sweet. Dry and slightly bitter floralness. Nice citric peel lemon - orange - grapefruit. Light finish. Decent.

BeerViking (5198) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Cask at the Michael Bacon JDW, blond with a fine white head anda citrus hoppy nose. Powerfully dry-bitter on the palate, yet with an earthy note and an underlying maltiness, it’s almost like an English take on an American IPA.

allmyvinyl (11321) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Cask at Counting House JDW, Glasgow. Pale yellow, thin white head. Nice hop aromas, orange and peach. Taste brings a light sweetness, good bitterness. Clean finish. Decent.
