tom10101 (2239) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
On tap @ Brewdog Camden (Greater London). Slightly hazy golden with a small ring of off-white foam and little lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops (mainly), nice floral notes and light caramel/malt. Taste is also of citrusy hops, floral notes, light caramel, good malt backbone, very little bitterness and no alcohol presence compared to the Kohatu version. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Good IPA. Tasty and drinkable. I also tried this beer from a randall with Citra and Amarillo hops. The appearance was a little better with the head being more persistent and creamier. Aroma was a little stronger with more hops and more citrus forward (floral aspect was hidden). A little less carbonation, but it didn’t hinder the drinkability at all.

On tap at Brewdog SB. Pours a fairly dark amber with a white head. Big fruity aroma - tangerine, passion fruit, mango, lychee and a hint of caramel. Medium body, medium carbonation. Sticky sweet, with caramel/toffee being quite predominant, candy too. A hint of veggie funk, mild bitterness. It is juicy and tasty, nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (7004) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
Keg at BD on the Bush, 04/03/14. Orange amber with a good sized off white covering that retains well. Nose is floral, bitter orange, pine, grapefruit, mango, juicy hops. Taste comprises grapefruit, juicy mango, soft bread dough, light spice, good lick of pine, tropicana express. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid IPA - one for the BD haters to go seek out !

maneliquor (2787) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
Tap at BD Shoreditch. Pours clear bright orange with a small white cap. Nose is splendid mango based tropical fruits, passionfruit and tangerine with bright pear. Sweet fruit focus, I like it. Taste is loaded with tropical hoppage - think mango, passionfruit, nectarine and mandarin. There is some light zest on the finish it ha nice blood orange hit. Tangy and refreshing. More sweet than bitter and probably a little too much carbonation which muddles the hops a touch but damn it’s tasty. Very enjoyable

Keg at BD Leeds, Solid malty backbone with orange, clementine citrus hop flavour coming through with a bitter, hoppy finish.A good single hop beer demonstrating the flavour profile of the simcoe hop.

RichTheVillan (2126) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Birmingham; clear amber pour with foamy off white head, fresh pine aroma, delightful pine taste a hint of grapefruit and citrus well balanced malts, moderate bitterness listed an 6.8% so not sure if its a new beer or un-retired.

teorn88 (1916) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Keg at BD Camden, though the Hopinator. It pours a clear golden body with a medium qhite head. Aroma is huge tropical notes, mango, pineapple, peaches. Some resiny and flowery notes. Taste is tropical fruits, pineapple, honey, violets. Mildly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium with lively carbonation. Overall, fantastic IPA, but I suspect the fresh hop infusion improved the base beer quite a lot.
