Organic bottle conditioned Yorkshire IPA.

Gently poured into a straight pint glass.

Deep bronze beer with initially no head. However, a soft carbonation quickly forms 1/4 inch of white creamy foam that is retained very well with fine lacing all the way down the pint.

Aroma is of enticing hops, citrus and spice.Soft and silky in the mouth, medium body.

First mouthful isn't as expected, real hit of heavy toasty malt, some butterscotch, a metallic trace, laced with bitterness from the hops. Theres a slight hint of soap suds, but grapefruit and cirtus peel dominate. A pleasant sweetness and an aftertaste of malt lingers.

Very pleasant beer, subtle in its way and definitively english.

A clear amber beer, an off-white head that leaves little lacing.

The smell is sweet, and has a dried tropical fruits quality.

The tastee is also sweet, peaches, apricots, lychee and some grass finish.

Light carbonation, a smooth soft, almost sticky, texture, a big body and a slightly dry finish.

Nice, but for me a bit on the sweet side of perfect.

Hazy dirty blonde with puffy loose white head that crusts.
Flinty cut grain with floral honey and orange marmalade on the nose.
Plenty of biscuit and toffee with some peach then spice and slight orange rind for hops.
Seville orange peel finish and tingly cedar linger.
Light-medium, fizzy, slight cling.

Good body, a sturdy malt backbone and decent hops, surprising citrus and IBUs both. Just don't know what distinguishes it from a top bitter (like, say, Tribute). Flavor's not quite enough for a 6% hit (by British standards.)

Good bitter, below average IPA.
