Cask at Borefts 12. Big white frothy head. Straw yellow pour. The aroma Is very hoppy which is a big clue to what lies behind in the flavour. Nice bitterness on the palate. The sample I tasted was a little on the warm side but I can't help but feel it should be served a little cooler which would have enhanced the experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

danielecamo (582) - ITALY - FEB 24, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore arancio, leggermente velata. schiuma fine e abb persistente. all’aroma esplosione di frutta esotica, pompelmo, mango, lime,arancia, anche dell’erbaceo. Al palato corpo medio, alcool quasi non percettibile e di nuovo spremuta di frutta in arrivo. Ben fatta anche se quasi eccessiva

ThirstyBird (1868) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2015
Pours a clear rich amber color with a deep cream colored head. The smell is grapefruit, floral, citrus, some caramel malt and grass. The taste is is a nice balance between rich malt in the bringing with the tropical, citruc, green hops following leaving the mouth dry. The beer is light+ in body with average carbonation. Good stuff!

Bottle. Orange golden color, normal head. Right after opening the bottle, the delicious aroma came floating out, with peach, white grape and pine, simply amazing. Taste is freshly bitter and grassy, with grapefruit, pine and citrus. Bitter fruity finish. Really good IPA.

Towey1989 (109) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2015
Keg at Buxton Brewery Tap House. Clear pale orangey, amber colour with thin white head. Aromas of grapefruit, pineapple and mango balanced with caramel. Tastes of caramel and bready malt and a big hit of citrusy hops like grapefruit, passion fruit and pineapple. Medium carbonation and full flavoured. A long, hoppy, citrusy finish. Really nice and powerful IPA.
