4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. BB Oct 2013. Dark amber colored, murky with a thight white head. Citrus fruits all in, kiwi and various tropical fruits bursting out of the glass. Can’t stop smelling it, so inviting aroma. Flavor is orange juice like with citrus, strong hoppyness, bitter fruity with pine in the finish. Feels light in my mouth, soo drinkable. Very light sweetness if any. Just fruity hops making this an incredible IPA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle from The Beerhive.
Frothy white head with good lacing, cloudy golden body. Nose is citrus and tropical fruit, a little grass, not big aromas. Flavour is grapefruit, pineapple followed by sharp gooseberry. Grassy bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is full, light carbonation. Another winner from Buxton.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle. Bottled on Oct 2013. From saveur-biere.com.
Cloudy dark amber colour with a tiny white head.
Oh my... the aroma is fresh, fruity and intoxicating... wow!
There’s fruity freshness, piney deepness and some sweetness...
The flavour is more realistic... there’s piney, resiny and fruity hops, quite strong bitterness, malty sweetness and biscuity maltiness.
Balanced and great! Wow!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from vino. Juicy citrus aroma. Buttloads of citrus flavour leading to a pithy bitter finish that really lingers.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Draught at Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Muddy orange with white head. Citrus aroma. Big hoppy flavour, resin, lemon. Medium bodied, highly carbonated. Quite an impressive IPA.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,33L bottle, bottled Nov. 2013. Pours hazy golden-brown with huge white head; the head stays. Aroma is intense grass, grapefruit, citrus. Taste: grapefruit bitter and sweet, pine, malt. Overall: solid IPA, but their choice of hops is not my favorite (the aroma is especially disappointing for me).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Drink Bar Tallinn. Crazy mixture of hops in aroma. Served in a tulip, pours hazy orange, with beautiful white creamy head. Fruity and citrucy, with a mixture of tutti-frutti candy. So complex, that you need to go and have a glass a day for a week, to understand how good it is. Full bodied, full flavoured IPA. No wonder it is at the top. Strongly recommend.
