One of the best IPAs I have tried. Screw all those malt bomb IPAs, this one is a nice dry, crisp, pale, non-syrupy one. More like a traditional IPA. Again, screw all this trendy 'tons of malt' in an IPA which just ends up in a chaotic, thick, syrup-like mess.

This one is all pine resin and grapefruit. No sweetness or dark syrup. As in a "True IPA"

This IPA is one of the few fit to fly the Union Jack.
