500ml bottle. Pours light copper with a very thin head. A little darker in colour than expected. Mild, fresh aroma. Slightly floral with moderate to strong hops and a light sweetness. Mild malt and a moderately long finish that’s not too sharp. Not quite as smooth as I’d hoped but well balanced and very enjoyable.

AtronSeige (555) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 15, 2014
Aroma: Hops: Medium-light,Musty, earthy hops, Malt: Light caramel, biscuit Appearance: Clear, light copper body. Medium, fizzy, off-white head. Good retention. Flavour: Malt: Light Caramel. Hops: medium-light earthy/musty. Well balanced, slightly towards malty sweetness initially, but then gives a hoppy/bitterness in the finish. Dry finish. Orange zest Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Dry finish Overall: A flavourful IPA, without the aggressive, over the top hops or bitterness. Very enjoyable. Something to drink in large volumes. 500ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 14A. English IPA

See: Golden yellow. One finger white frothy head. Smell: Grapefruit, hint of sweet passion fruit. Grassy hops. Taste: Mellow. Pine at the end of the mouth, malty nuttiness at the beginning. Well balanced, hint of sweetness but subtle bitterness cuts through. Pallet: Medium carbonation. Short hoppy finish. Light body. Very refreshing, very drinkable and very pleasant flavours. Mixture of malty sweetness and delicate, subtle hops.

rgf001 (122) - München, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle. Not an IPA. Clashing aroma of earthy and citrusy hops. Pours dark gold with white head that disappears quickly. Earth and citrus flavors with malt undertones. Dry finish. Ok beer but unbalanced.

Apariencia: De un tono dorado y translúcido con una capa de espuma fina pero duradera. Aroma: Principalmente va de lo cítrico a lo floral, con ligeras notas a malta. Sabor: En boca es frutal, principalmente cítrica pero bien acompañada de un agradable amargor.

Godfather50 (48) - SCOTLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Pours nicely, perhaps slightly over carbonated. Head looks good but relaxes into nothing quickly. The taste is good, malt with Apple and pair fruit. Mouthfeel dominated by fiz from the gas. A clean taste which.begs a second bottle. Bother it was a single left at Fiona’s 50th.

Holmen2 (781) - NORWAY - MAY 18, 2014
Clear golden. Good white head. Refreshing aroma of grass, flowers, pine shoots and lime marmelade. Similar taste, well balanced with malt sweetness. Medium short aftertaste. Good drinkability.

Desverger (1783) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle@The Mitre Hotel, Hampton - golden amber pour with a small white head. Very subdued hoppy aroma and taste, light citrus lemony nuances, faint herbal and floral, pretty watery, pretty basic stuff.

uckelman (253) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2014
Pours clear and golden, small dappled white head. Aroma is herby and sweet, maybe a bit honey-like. Flavor is bittersweet. Medium body, bit of astringency on the finish from the carbonation. Aftertaste is not sweet, which I like---that would kill this beer for me.
