Freewheel's session IPA has a good hit of pine and citrus from Willamette and Cascade hops with Centennial adding floral notes without the bitterness. Combined with Marris Otter Malt, this is a smooth and balanced IPA in the true British sense, palatable, a reasonable ABV and a shame not have another.
Special Note: This is a cask style ale which is different than your typical beer – it has less carbonation and if you want a good head in your mug, give it a long pour like a fancy bartender.
