A clear amber brew with a smattering of tan froth. Does not look exceptional, but looks can be deceiving. Aroma is a pleasant mix of orange, citrus and grain. Nothing special here, so moving on. After an initial wave of caramel and grain a faint bitterness is noticed alongside some tea leaf and faint fruit zest. Light to medium in body.

If I had a time machine and decided (despite the risks) to use it, this would be the kind of IPA I would enjoy if I set the year to 1995.

TS can do much better than this...that Quad right!
