Had a couple of half pints at a hotel down the road from the brewery after a tour of the brewery. (can't remember the name of the hotel).
Aroma: Sweet malts. Spicy hops. Floral.
Looks: Pale golden- yellow. The first glass served to me was quite hazy (inappropriately so for a cask-conditioned IPA), the second glass was crystal clear, so I guess they must have just tapped the cask. Small dense white head. Spots of lace here and there. Good head retention.
Taste:Some sweet malt notes followed up by a generous amount of hops. Spicy, grassy, some pineapple and maybe some citrus. Really nice clean bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied. Soft natural carbonation.
Serving type: cask

Undated bottle at cellar temp into an imperial pint
Head large (6 cm), white, creamy with rocks, slowly diminishing into large chunks of foam floating
Body light yellow, hazy, some sediment in bottle
Flavor begins slightly hoppy with no alcohol, no diacetyl, and no malt presence. Ends with a slight bitterness.
Palate light, watery, soft carbonation
This is a nice example of a strong Brit IPA, much weaker than we are used to here in the colonies. If you can find one, a nice change from our usual hop bombs, smooth and easy drinking.

0,5 liter bottle
Had this with a hot chicken curry. Great combo.
First smell from the bottle is citrus and pine. IPA.
Pale golden colour, nice creamy head after a good pour. Clear and good carbonation.
NIce strong hoppy smell, as said, and yet the taste is quite mild in it's bitterness.
Mouthfeel is soft for an IPA, to my experience. Very well balance between crispness and smoothness. Refreshing.
All in all this is a great beer, imo.
Glad to have tried this. It's expensive where i live, but it's worth the experience.
