From tap at Duke’s 92 in Manchester 05.05.15. Clear golden. Small, off-white head. Tropical fruits, dried fruits and wine gum in aroma and taste. Very moderate bitterness.

Feels like it was designed, (and beer should never be "designed") by a committee of marketing men responding to "Trends in the UK Craft Beer market". A beer version of ChihiraAico (look it up), and as such not entirely horrible, but slightly unnerving. Nice to wash your Soylent Green down with.

Banana, bready at first. Very unexciting and basic bitterness with the slightest tease of proper new world Ipa hoppiness which makes this a trade.descriptions job. Bit.of honey and lemon on the finish. Overall it’s not awful but is quite disappointing.

It’s like they took the 60 Minute IPA from Dogfish Head, which is one of their worst beers, then highlighted the worst parts of it. It’s not terrible, but it’s definitely nothing special. A bit of caramel and madly in the front, then a basic hop finish with citrus.

Had a bottle of this ages ago in a pub near bottledog. No idea on appearance as I drank it from the bottle. Weak citrus aroma, slightly floral and some hops. Quite a nice fresh taste bit nowhere near as crisp as a really good APA.

Bottle. Aroma is citrusy, hoppy. Taste: hints of malt, fruity hops and bitter finish. Good, session beer.

MrBlueSky93 (362) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2015
Bottle from Beer52. Pours amber, clear with single finger off white head. Aroma is very malty, nuts, dark fruits and a touch of citrus at the end. Taste of initial malts, caramel, toffee, biscuit then some light citrus...a bit malty, but not bad.

rlgk (12521) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
Draught at Bishops Arms, Sövde. Clear orange/amber beer with a decent offwhite head. Malty bready aroma, citrus, grapes, caramel, some grainy notes. Malty biscuit flavor, hay, grass, some dough. Not that good.

MrHangover (3062) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear amber beer with a big off white head on top. Aroma is rather malty for an APA, some nutty notes, dark fruits, faint, light citric note in the back. Flavor is mildly bitter, soft sweetness going on and is basically an example of the British take on an IPA/APA. Soft hoppy notes, moderately malty and overall very drinkable. Decent stuff.
