COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special: Wetherspoon Spring 2013 Real Ale Festival
This bright, amber-coloured beer has an intense, hoppy aroma. It’s packed with hop flavours and a ruby-red grapefruit character, balanced by a deep, malty backbone, giving a long, lingering finish.

romolime (184) - - OCT 20, 2016
Versione di ipa di scarso gusto, il sapore dei luppoli non si sente quasi, il colore sull’arancio rosso. Non riprenderei

3.2
Tranquillity (2436) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2015
Dark body, small white head. Very smooth aroma, not sticky. The taste is hoppy but balanced and the finish could be a bit smoother or surprising for an ipa.

wolffish (660) - Saint-Donat, CANADA - JAN 11, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2015 Ça sent vraiment bon (principalement le pin et le citron) mais c’est pas joli à voir (beaucoup de matière en suspension). Sous la canette, ça dit Meilleure avant le 10 octobre 2014, ce qui explique peut-être la cause de mon commentaire précédent. En bouche, c’est vraiment sec, un peu comme la Hickson des 2 Frères... Update du 14 mai 2015: j’ai monté la note de l’apparence car j’ai pu déguster une bière fraîchement brassée cette fois-ci ;-)

Stuu666 (13661) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Cask at the Foot of the Walk. Pours golden amber, sweet and malty, lots of hoppy flavour.

3.2
Beese (2939) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 10 April 2013. Poured a clear copper colour with a dense white head. Sweet aroma of strawberry, bubblegum and short-bread biscuit. Initial flavours of pink grapefruit, cake and boiled sweets. Finish was bitter resin, some residual citrus and brown sugar.

john44 (3133) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2014
Two Cask Pints at Wibbas Down (JDW), Wimbledon, London in Apr 2013 during Spoons Festival - Orange-Amber in colour. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and grassy hops. Fruity; tangy zesty grapefruit and orange citrus. Malty backbone; toasty malts and caramel. Distinct hop bitterness throughout. Long bitter hoppy and dry finish. Liked this a lot. Nice IPA!

3.5
downender (8693) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2013
On gravity at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol April 2013. Amber with a decent, off-white head. Plenty of citrus fruit, some pine notes, soil cereal malts and a dry finish. Very good.

3.9
wheresthepath (2345) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
[Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading] Amber with a moderate white head. Peach and flowers up front, a sweet juicy, fruity middle, and a mildly bitter grapefruit & pine finish. Sweeter & less hoppy than many IPAs. A very British take on an American IPA, focussing more on balance and drinkability than aggressiveness. The alcohol is well hidden, and it’s tasty and rather moreish. Good stuff.

3.8
cgarvieuk (24815) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2013
cask at Sorder ... golden amber ... thin tan head ... soft zezty fruits .. orange and pineapple nose ... sweet oily fruits ... juicy orange

3.5
Leighton (21551) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2013
Cask at Penderel’s Oak, JDW - London. Pours clear, deep gold with a tight, creamy head. Ripe citrus on the nose, some doughy malts, lightly toasted bread. Medium sweet flavor with further doughy bread, ripening orange, some piney bitterness. Medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Lightly sticky finish with hints of alcohol, more orange and pine. Decent.
