500ml Bottle (Sainsbury's, £1.51): Bright amber colour with a large, two fingers tall head that is a foamy white and has excellent retention.

Hoppy to begin with but a subdued, unmistakably English IPA aroma that is fruity with some orange and citrus notes along with some pine and light grapefruit notes. A very nice smell that has some floral touches and an earthy hop aroma too.

Very hop filled with some pine and lighter grapefruit that mirrors the nose. There is some orange and sweet fruits in the mix along with a touch of earthy bitterness.

A little bitter and quite well balanced with a nice, medium body and moderate carbonation along with a nice, crisp citrus finish that is slightly dry too.

I've tried this one a few times before on nights out and not fully appreciated how good it actually is. A very nice IPA that was very enjoyable. Definitely one to look out for and try if you get the chance.

I know that this is an English IPA, but I feel like it is still missing just a little something. Just a little more punch from hops, perhaps. What's there is decent, but not anything interesting. It's funny that I never thought I'd see anything else from this brewery, but here it is. Unfortunately, I think I appreciate their gruits more than this.
