Great Taste® Judges said:
"An intense bitterness but still smooth, big flavoured but balanced, rounded and delicious. When you go back a second and third time and find new flavours like citrus, it makes you remember why they brewed IPAs in the first place: to withstand a sea crossing. In Calcutta they used to say 'it has ripened.'
Great clarity and carbonation. We loved the nose - peaches and cream - which carried through to the palate. We also loved the subtle complex flavours of red apple, peach and honey, and the huge bitter finish."
