3.28/5 rDev -12.5%
500ml bottle served in a small tulip.
Appeaqrance: Medium amber with weak head
Hoppier than their The Chief but still only at the level of a modern APA, so English IPA. Lasting, mildly bitter and nicely hoppy aftertaste.
Feel: Medium-light body with medium carbonation.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2014. Picked up recently in Booths. Described on the label as a transatlantic IPA brewed with North American and English hops. Yum....
Poured into a tulip pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A bright golden hue with faint haze and light carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding. Aroma of juicy hops with notes of white grape, melon and citrus, along with a faint hint of fruity tartness that almost calls vinegar to mind. Underpinned by subtle malt and earthy yeast.
Tastes of fruity aroma hops with a crisp bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, melon, white grape, citrus, earthy yeast, light malt and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, with a strident, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with pleasant carbonation and decent body for the style. Somewhat astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and yeast.
Rather nice - a well crafted IPA. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour have a juicy hoppiness that suggests citrus and white fruits. Decent body; the hop oils toy with the palate. A solid effort that is worth your time - pick one up if you see it.
