Niall73 (1783) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a nice orangy amber with a thin white head. Toasty, bready, marmalade aroma. Medium body, mild carbonation. Some bread, biscuit in there then a touch of trop fruit, though the sweetness is minimal. It finishes dry with a touch of grapefruit. OK.

kapusil (599) - HUNGARY - JAN 9, 2014
On tap. Aroma and taste of toast, caramel, floral and citrusy hops. Not a very complex and bold beer, but well made. Easy to drink. I could session that.

AdiBeer (1088) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Aroma: light on hops, sweet malts seem dominant. Appearance: amber clear, small white head. Taste: light sweetness. Palate: low fizz, malts turning to a mild bitterness. Overall: not you typical IPA, but very drinkable. Pint at the Crate Brewery, London.

jmgreenuk (4357) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. 5.8%. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is floral hops. The flavour is medium bitter with a thin bodied, hoppy, weak liqourice, citrus fruit palate and a short bitter finish. Needs a little more on the hop front I feel, but a decent session beer.

Idiosynkrasie (3814) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Cautious bitter hoppy aroma with a touch of grapefruit. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty with a biscuit touch, cautiously bitter hoppy; very soft palate. A way more malty than hoppy IPA.

JonMoore (1861) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle from St Pancras Station. Amber coloured with thin white head. Grassy floral aroma. Spicey bitter flavour, could be crisper, but not bad. Long bitter finish.

10th January 2013
Bright clear amber beer with a small off white head. Palate is light and dry. Mild creamy malt, semi dry. Hops are bitter, slightly harsh with a grassy note. A sour fruit and grapefruit - pithy orange. Bitter linger. Slightly harsh bit actually quite drinkable.

Osprey87 (1708) - WALES - AUG 16, 2013
LCBF. 1/3 pint. Orange brown, bubbly white head is small. Smell - I’m not getting a lot. A little sour, some flowers. Taste - Again, some flowers, some lager. Bitter and astringent but very drinkable.

Beersiveknown (2999) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle at home from ales by mail, month past its BBE.
Light chestnut, offwhite lacing, grapefruit pith and red fruits, butterscotch and melon. Full bodied, low carbonation, sweet malt, green apple sharpness, dry bitterness, long herbal dry finish. Maybe that summer heat had an effect.
