It really is a perfect IPA, completely under the radar. Extremely balanced with depth and character, nothing subtle about this beers statement. Great stuff.

Thinking, in particular, of the cask version of this, which offers a kaleidoscope of smell, stratospheric fruitiness, with enough citric bite to bring it back down to earth. Nice and bitter on the palate. Been too long since I had a fresh bottle/pint of the non-cask version. Will report back once I have. In the meanwhile, if you ever see this on cask, give it a whirl -- I thought it translated incredibly well.
