This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

Bottle. A modern classic. Fruity tropical hops, pineapple, kiwi. Sweetness offset by mouthy malt, ever so slight bitterness and yeasty dryness. Sweet and refreshing. Goes down in numbers, but creeps up on you. Absolute favourite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tobiasoe (63) - NORWAY - NOV 24, 2014
Thin white head over golden beer. Good aroma intensity of very fresh hops, tropical and piney, some faint buttery sweetness. Medium carbonation, medium body, medium bitter attack, sort of hollow mid palate where the body falls through, finish becomes faintly fruity and medium bitter. It’s certainly ok but a let down from the aroma and doesn’t feel very "punk".

shoestring (273) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Citrus and hops to the fore. Easy drinking but a wee bitty too fruity for me. Light amber with foamy headwhen poured into straight glass.Lemon zest - wow.Orange marmalade too. Strength hidden in flavour. Bit too pricey for me compared to other beers of same ilk.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 A very good introduction for IPAs, aroma is citrus and hoppy, thin white foam, médium body, golden color and a little bitter at the end. it’s just a fine beer.

BlackHaddock (4025) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2014
Keg half-pint in Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 19th Nov 2014. Poured a golden colour, with a full white head. Hops rule the nose and taste, citrus and floral with the citrus notes pushing the flowery hints to the rear. Fizzy and lemony, too highly carbonated for me and my palate. Did not really enjoy. Fizzy Toilet Duck!

Head is creamy, white and fully diminishing. Body is clear yellow orange, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains mainly hops with loads of (tropical and citrus) fruits (both sweet and sour). Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light acidic, sweet and light bitter, Light acidic and light butter and finishing in bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Balanced and complex in the fruits. I quite liked it, the bitterness was not too harsh or overpowering.

Bevuta in lattina, al naso esplodono i frutti tropicali (mango soprattutto) che danno lidea che al palato sia molto dolce, quando in realtà, apparte l’ingresso, si mantiene giustamente amara e beverina! Forse me l aspettavo un attimo meno watery (che però aiuta a mandarla facilmente in gola)
