Our full flavoured, strong India Pale Ale. Now hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Nelson Sauvin. This beer has a pale straw-amber body, and pours with a full creamy head. Its complex flavours include mandarin orange, schnapps, pineapple, and juicy tropical fruits. It is warmingly alcoholic with a dry finish.

A great beer with a very clear hoppy taste and dry finish. To my palate not unlike a slightly heavier version of Six Strings Pale Ale which is one of my favourites. Certainly on my shopping list from now on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice beer. The taste is quite a journey. You can taste many things. The bitterness is hiden behind sweet introduction, with a small touch of chocolate. Only thing that I miss is a stronger aroma. Overall it’s good beer.

juffage (136) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
On tap at Buxton Tap House, and several bottles bought previously from work. Very tropical fruit forward IPA. Orange/straw color with classy aroma. Resiny, piney, dank, mango, caramel flavours. Tied for best UK IPA of all time with Cannonball and a few Kernel offerings. Just drink it already.

Kauge (845) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle at Hell Hunt in Tallinn. Opaque orange body, head with great retention, lace good too. Resiny, pretty rough aroma, blood orange sweet, other sweet tropical fruits. Very juicy sweet, a bit oniony taste, with a mellowish bitter finish. It’s obviously too old, bottled 14.4.15 - its BB should’ve been due already but is 14.1.16. Feels less exciting than the average good IPA but considering I remember having it many times before, and liking it, I’m giving it a better score than this specific bottle deserves.

Pours hazy golden with a medium white head that lasts and leaves lovely lacing. Aroma is mango, pineapple, pine, grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, ripened mango with lovely sweet malt backbone and big bitter hop finish. Very drinkable, a top UK IPA.

CacheManyHose (421) - HONG KONG - SEP 5, 2015
From Craftissimo. Drank with Matt after Reza's boat. Cleat light orange-tan with fizzy white head and light wispy foamy legs. Smell is lots of dry woody hop, spicy crystal malt. Taste is resin, dry wood, faint lemon spice, dry mineral finish. Body is dry, frothy, medium, light lemon. Lots of resin dry woody flavour that is still restrained and fine. Tasty and different.

HKdIPA (489) - HONG KONG - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle from the new Craftissimo at home. Hazy golden yellow pour with chunky tall head. Aroma is apple juice, fruity hops, sweet caramel biscuit malt. Taste is very sharp bitter hoppy bite that builds over time. Orange peel, tropical fruit hops. Powerful bitterness leaves tongue almost tingling. Malt is less present in taste than aroma, not a bad thing. Very bitter hoppy IPA but more in a citrus fruity way than pine resin. Delicious.

Big foamy tanned head. Hazy amber. Malty, fruity and spicy. Strong, intense, filling, full-bodied. Very tasty and relaxing.
