Not very hoppy nose. Pretty sweet taste at first, a moderate but lingering bitterness in aftertaste.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2016 500ml bottle, due 09/2017. Pours clear golden yellow with small white head and almost no lacing. Very little aroma, mostly malty, a bit of flowery scents. Taste is not complex, I would describe the little taste I can as malty with noticeable bitterness. Some buttery feeling in the background. It?s mid full. Overall it is a nice IPA though I got so used to the American hops I am missing these here... Though it is supposed to have Chinook and Cascade and none are detectable.

Bottle. Pours auburn, generous head. Not much aroma. Its very dry and bitter, with no real complexity. Ok, but its a bitter rather than an IPA for me.

corkyrory66 (1511) - BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2016
Cornish ipa de 5,5 % abv, avec malt Maris Otter pale. Houblonnage en willamette, chinook et cascade. Format 50 cl (merci), et tiquetage soign avec chelle de valeur gustative, niveau bitter de 4 sur 5, et sweet de 2 sur 5. Le brasseur sous-titre son label par la mention "powerfully hopped", cest sympa. Cette bire a obtenu plusieurs rcompenses par lassociation Camra dans ce quils appellent les "champion bottled beer": lor en 2011 et largent en 2013 et 14. Mon exemplaire tait 2 mois avant date. Couleur dor soutenu brillant, la clart pure, cristalline. Bulles moyennes en diverses colonnes droites, vives. Mousse blanc cass, flocons moyens, stable 3 mm. Armes dagrumes, malt clair, mandarine, houblon fin. Trs beau nez. 1re bouche souple lentame sur malt fin, et amertume incisive, aigu, distingue. Arrire-bouche au dveloppement remarquable de lamertume. 2me avec quilibre, force de lamertume, pointe de houblon vert. Arrire-bouche complexe et longue. 3me la trs grande amertume, aux trs nombreuses nuances. Arrire-bouche trs large, bien centre sur lamertume. Longueur au nez plus citrique, mais la bouche donne une amertume au panel impressionnant de saveurs. Jambes fines et longues. Levure fine, un peu boise, trs belle ligne. Alcool trs bien, il parat plus que son niveau, mais les 50 cl aide la chose!! Finale avec une trs lgre pointe fume stylise, cest remarquable. CONCLUSION: ce "proper job" ne doit avoir aucun scrupule par rapport son frre le "big job"... Il est tout fait remarquable, et je suis daccord avec les rcompenses que lui a donnes Camra plusieurs reprises. Bravo St Austell, on boira vos bires sur lautel ...

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2016 Really good, one of my favourite British IPAs. Very juicy mouth feel, lovely tropical passion fruit, apricot and peach fruity hop bitterness, with a bit of light caramel sweetness. Refreshing and very drinkable, defo one to buy again. Awesome beer !!

500ML Bottle .In a Shaker Pint . Im surprised not to have rated this , certain Ive drunk it before and I could say that about many beers . Nose of fresh citrus emphasis , wood , pine , musty aftershave and light maltiness . Two fingers of foam like when Rich scratches his ass with his fingers in the welfare line ...bright pale ale kinda colour . A pretty intense hoppy APA - assertive hops and a kiss of caramel backdrop . Good long fruity grapefruit zest bitterness lingers nicely ...Its pretty Xsolid ,
