On-cask at the Euston tap into a half-pint.

A: Slightly hazy pale amber body under a thin, sticky ecru head. Great retention and lacing. Lovely.

S: Intensely hoppy, with huge floral power, as well as some cannabis. Nothing but hops, and they're great.

T: Floral + herbal hops up front, with some pine + orange fruitiness leading in to toffee malt and a hugely bitter finish. Terrific.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation. Nice.

O: Terrific ale. It just so happens that I reviewed this beer in my notebook at the bar in May, submitted the brewery to the BeerAdvocate database as soon as I got back from my European trip in early June, and just now got the go-ahead to review the beer on the 4th of July: Go America!

This is a wonderful beer, and one that everyone who can sample it should sample it. The biggest selling point of this beer, though, is its outrageous hoppiness - a factor that it owes almost entirely to the American (A/I)PA movement of the moment. Anyone who genuinely enjoys hops will enjoy this beer, but it will certainly help if you have a taste for big American hop-bombs.

Great stuff.

Cheers!
