Our full flavoured, strong India Pale Ale. Now hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Nelson Sauvin. This beer has a pale straw-amber body, and pours with a full creamy head. Its complex flavours include mandarin orange, schnapps, pineapple, and juicy tropical fruits. It is warmingly alcoholic with a dry finish.

My personal fave of all the UK brewer's interpretations of the US IPA. Amazing aroma and mouthfeel. Would be much further up the IPA charts on here if it was more readily available outside the UK. Despite what it says in the bottle I prefer it chilled rather than at cellar temperature. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beer-yum (1361) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 12, 2016
Tropical citrus fruit aroma in a golden amber pour. Laid back hop forward balance with tasty fruit body and crisp clean finish. An excellent example of the style (New/Old world IPA hybrid).

Pours blonde colour. Taste and aroma are extremely hoppy and dry with a hint of tropical fruit. Great stuff.

I’d rate this as one of the best English IPA’s I’ve had. Big and loaded with Hop resin. I had a fresh bottle (from the label), and it was just bursting with hop goodness, with a great IPA length that is true to style

Bottle at a friend’s. Really strongly hopped but not in an overpowering way. Somewhat herbaceous, citrus to balance. Awesome beer.

Cloudy orange color with a long-lasting, one finger-tail sized white good lacing head. Citrus, spices, orange peel, passion fruit. Bitterness rose on the palate, backbone is malty, followed with very bitter finish.The after taste is moderate. Medium-bodied, average carbonation. The hop is so fresh and the stone fruit just broke out!! Much better than other IPA i have ever tried. Reasonable price with excellent taste. Cheers!

Ulysse (438) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2016
Tastes like dried malted barley with a sticky bitterness. Rather strong for its lower ABV. Good body. Good IPA on the heavy side but not over the top.

Pours cloudy amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, mango, passion fruit. Taste is quite rich resinous, bready up front followed by a light fruit sweetness before a lingering bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2016 0,33L bottle bought at the Bottle Shop Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours a hazy amber colour, with medium creamy white head and beautiful lacing. Aroma: Fruity and hoppy aroma of mango, grapefruit and passionfruit from the NZ hop ( probably Nelson Sauvin), with some lemon and citrus notes from the Amarillo and Citra hops. There is some malty, piney and resin backbones Taste: Medium citrus bitterness and malty flavour with some light grapefruit sourness. Palate: Medium body with balance and subtle bitterness. Dry and crisp finish with citrus and some tropical fruits aftertaste. Overall: A really solid and lively IPA. The aroma and the flavour are perfectly balanced with juicy tropical fruits note and malty and piney backbone. Really outstanding.
