Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a orange-amber coloured beer with tropical fruit and toffee flavours, a creamy mouthfeel and a zesty, warming fruity finish.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Bottled, 500ml from S.H Jones, Banbury. Clouded gold with white head. Sweetish, malty beer, quite lager like in character, some graininess with a light lemony note, hints of resin perhaps but no major hop impact. Thinnish but reasonable drinking. Certainly no IPA in my book, more sweet blonde.

WhoU (102) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 27, 2014
Bottle KwaZulu-Natal. Pours hazy orange apricot peach with medium light head and carbonation. Aroma is light hop floral herb grass citrus. Taste is slight bitter. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry. Overall not bad but aroma not as pronounced aa typical for style and taste could be sharper. But accurate as the name suggests all day IPA.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Draught and Frankie’s Shenzhen in the proper Brewers & Union imperial glassware. Pours hazy apricot color. The head is white, big bubble foamy, cool and lasting. The aroma is bitter apricot, not sweet. Mellow palate. Very cold and awesome. A traditional IPA with low carbonation. Great light, fruity beginning that’s quickly overshadowed by bitterness. Aftertaste is practically non-existent save for some limestone mineral. A real treat in Shenzhen! This beer is very good and its an all dayer!

therambler (8) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2013 does not count
A lovely little IPA well balanced not overwhelming IBU’s and a decent amount of malt while still maintaining the ability of letting the hops through. Could be more exciting, but its perfectly described as an all day IPA

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle at Craft at the Market, Johannesburg, bb 02.08.14
Cloudy orange gold color with compact head. Very mild aroma. The flavor is a bit malty and caramelly, with moderate residual sugar, correct bitterness; smooth. Not much hop character though.
Too simple, British style IPA.

DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Lacks freshness, maybe I kept it too long. Mushy, juicy, Euro style hops. Sweet and squidy. Certainly drinkable. Like a UK Golden or a hoppy lager. Fine.
