This India Pale Ale marks a slight change in direction of Tryst Ales, away from low alcohol session ales to rather more substantial and serious Real Ale. This IPA is hopped with three popular British hops to produce a deep lingering taste, complementing the underlying malts for a memorable pint.

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2010
[500ml bottle, Beers of Europe] Pours a rich golden colour, with a dense fluffy head that retains an impressively long time. Aromas are wonderful hops, some bitterness, but overwhelmingly tropical fruit mangoes, passion fruit. Has a tremendous bitter hop aftertaste, citrus heavy with some pine flavours. Very good indeed, particularly from a relatively small producer. Great stuff. [03/06/2010]

Tried at the Market Porter. First thing that struck me was that this was way to cold....kinda boring but man did it change as it warmed! Pine sap, honey mango and apricot nose. Sweet malty toffee up front which is then cleaned out completely by a wicked bitterness...not a subtle beer by any means but a mighty fine drop! reminds me of Renaissance perfection or at least how good perfection could be when they get it right!

Cask conditioned at Charters Bar, Peterborough. Gold to amber with white head. Fruity citrus notes right from the start, really very pleasant and light, orangey, fresh. A very decent beer.

500ml bottle at home. Hazy, murky amber with a thick frothy white head. Good lacing. Fruit peel, hops, malt and some honey on the nose. Very nice aroma. Mouthfeel is smooth but bitter, taste is hoppy and crisp, balanced out with very subtle malty caramel notes. Aftertaste is long, yeasty and very bitter. Very well-crafted.

On cask at The Caley. Pours a dark golden colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of pineapple and caramel. Similar flavours with pine and yeast to finish. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Just a little sweet.
