Listed as cask review as no option for gravity dispense, at the Battersea Beer festival, Feb '12, into an English pint glass.

Pours a dark golden / amber colour with a very thin white head.

Fruits (dried) and malts dominate the nose, a good all round earthy aroma, you just know that this beer has some bite in it!

Rich fruity hop flavours in the taste, slight hint of apple and maybe a pinch of spice in the background?

A full bodied ale, sticky in the mouth and a fairly dry finish.

Overall not a 'hop bomb' in my book, but a good earthy hoppy chewy beer, will re-visit in the future hopefully!

Very good American style IPA brewed by a guy I know so was really keen on trying. Available only upon special request from the cellar. Very good stuff and true to style. The taste is a winner and definitely its best selling point. American styl with Welsh ingrdients - how very interesting....
