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

Bottle. Syrupy coloured golden beer with a strong bubbly head. The aroma is strawy and hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped and bitter with a very long finish. Overall a really nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty much the best beer in the UK. Aromas of soft citrus fruits and a moderate bitter finish. Prefer now that its in a 330ml bottle! Bottle bought from Beer Paradise in Leeds

Terminus (3541) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle Pours bright medium orange hue with a nice rocky soapy white head and bathtub ring lacing. Nose is very modern hops big bright citrus floral hops very American. Flavors of grapefruit melons lite tropical notes but still has a bit of that old school pine that I look for. Great American ipa clone from the UK.

Muggus69 (1901) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2016
330mL bottle from Booze Bud. BB 15/4/16 Pours a deep hazy orange-gold body, white foam sits atop. Punchy hop driven - stacks of bitter citrus, cut grass, pine sap, biscuity toasty caramel malts. Full bodied, plenty of carbonation, quite resiny & slick. Palate packs plenty of hops - pine, grapefruit, woody spice, grass, dried herbs with generous dose of sweet caramel & biscuity malt. Firm bitterness to finish. Solid IPA rather nice indeed!

Draught at Keyaki. Bready body, nice fruity hops with grape, peach mandarin, floral notes, dry finish. Decent ipa, good stuff without being amazing, but will definitely try more of their stuff.

IlGagario (104) - Modena, ITALY - MAY 9, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore oro tendente all’arancio. Testa soapy colore bianco avorio, da cremosa a pannosa. Olfatto fruttato e floreale, leggera resina e agrumi. Carbonazione da flat a soffice. Aroma etilico di luppolo fruttato, scorza d’agrumi, lievito crespo, resina amara e frutta tropicale. Gusto amaro medio abbastanza aggressivo, pur disciplinato, secco, con finale asciutto a pulire. Alcool crespo e leggermente pungente. Corpo medio, trama leggermente oleosa e croccante. Ottimamente bilanciata, secca e aromatica, solida e soddisfacente, promossa!

pitch992 (82) - SLOVENIA - MAY 7, 2016
Aroma: elderberry, pine, tropical fruits, citruses, caramel. Appearance:: pale, clear, nice white head with good retention. Taste: light-medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, again all the notes from aroma with some alcohol as well. A bit overbearing perfumy taste. Palate: light- medium body, ok texture, average carbonation, long bitter and dry finish. A good double ipa with some nice layers. A bit tiresome but pleasant.
