Towey1989 (1448) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Keg at The Holy Inadeqate, Etruria. A hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, red berries, some strawberry, subtle oatmeal, grapefruit, orange and a little sugar. Taste of caramel, some toffee, red berries, slight strawberry, subtle grapefruit, a little orange and maybe sugar. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A bittersweet, caramelly, citrus bitterness in the finish. A decent IIPA, quiet sweet but a complex flavour. Not a lot of bitterness I expect from an IPA though.

tinylightsrecs (437) - - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Strong in flavour as you'd expect given the ABV. Not terribly difficult to drink though - fruits and hops.

evergreen0199 (2800) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2015
Keg at Berkhamsted beer shop, Berkhamsted, Herts. A golden/amber coloured pour with a thin white head on top. Slightly sweet, hoppy, tropical fruit aroma. Tastes the same, hoppy, sweet/biitter, some tropical fruit in there too. Rather unbalanced in my opinion and overly boozy but just about OK if you want to get hammered on a DIPA..
