Black with virtually no head.Very fresh hoppy flavour . Flavour and aroma just screams out -drink me, drink me. The nearest brewery to where I live. Quite proud of it after trying this one.

500ml bottle on 26th June 2016. Poured into a UK pint sleeve at home. Golden amber body, beige head that hung around. Malty molasses in the nose, more hop presence in the taste: decent blend with mild citrus flavours playing with the malty base.

Bottle. Dark golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is strongly toffee and bitter, and the flavour is also very strongly bitter with toffeeness but with quite a bit of richness. Overall a nice English style IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and fairly dry and mildly crisp. Malts are light, dry and mildly sweet. Sweetish esters. Mildly tangy citric hops. Touch of orange peel. Light dry crisp finish. Okay.

Cask at JDW Bishop Vesey; clear amber pour with light beige creamy head, citrus and malt aroma, taste is very malt forward, with only hints of citrus and grapefruit, some caramel and moderate bitter.

Cask@stMatthews, Walsall. Golden beer with a small head. Pineapple and citrus aroma. Taste is piney, sourish fruits and peppery hops. Quite dry finish. Ok, but not to my taste.

Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2010
Good looking with its crystal clear body to a golden-brown body. Patchy surface, fragile lacing on the glassware. Smell of juicy malts. Sweet and dried fruits to the malty backbone. Bittersweet finish. Cask, half at Market Porter, London 3 Oct 10.

Cask på Market Porter, Borough 3 Okt 10. Gylden. Forsiktig krydret aroma. Smaken brukbart fyldig. Mørk frukt. 0 kullsyre. Syrlig fruktig & svakt bitter ettersmak.

Cask, Hazy gold with a thin head. Aromas are peppery and floral with citrus. Some Autumn fruit with spices. Flavours are caramel malts with grapefruit bitterness and peppery, spicy notes. Dry and bitter on the finish. A decent properly hoppy IPA.
