Bottle-Conditioned 50cl bottle from The Beer Emporium, Sandbach. Poured into a Moors Beer glass. Spot on clear, pale orangey colour, light carbonation, light foamy head that cleared to light lacing. Hops dominate the aroma with orangey, citrus explosions - I love it. The taste is an experience, wow! hoppy, hoppy. The green target hops really make the difference for me. The dry bitterness is just right balance for this strength IPA. Mouthfeel is a full-bodied joy, the hop content hits straight away leaving a craving for more. For such a strong IPA I found myself drinking rather too quickly as the flavours developed and taste buds demanded more! Definitely up there as one of my current favourites

A: This poured a cloudy straw with a little white head and sediment.
S: It smelled like sugary orange.
T: It tasted like sugary orange and cantaloupe. It had a clean bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was a little thick with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was much better than Kipling. The scent wasn't great, but the taste was enjoyable and unique. The body was good, and the finish was pretty smooth, so it was easy to drink. Nothing special, but a good enough brew.

Lovely fruity citrus smell. Uber refreshing, light citrus flavour. Thin mouthfeel with very little alcohol taste despite being 7.2%. Really nice after taste although hardly any astringency. Bloody lovely beer. Reminds me of a summers day. More please!
