Beersiveknown (2781) - 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.

MannyGoldberg (160) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2013
Keg at The Beagle-15th May 2013. Bready aroma. Dark orange colour. Not overly carbonated despite dispense method. Malt is too dominant in the flavour profile for my tastes. Reminds me a bit of SNPA for some reason. Wonder if there's Cascade in there? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scopey (6315) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market, St Pancras. It pours clear orangy-amber with a small white head. The nose is bready, soft orange, light toast, wood, . The taste is juicy fruit, zesty orange, grapefruit, pine, bread, grain, light spice and caramel with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Strong malty backbone to it. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not exactly bursting with flavour, but well balanced and pretty drinkable.

viktorvee (510) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Better from the bottle thus far, well balanced but more towards the biscuit side than the hop bomb, which works really well. Well carbonated and looks the part. Crisp, also had as pint from the crate brewery, pleasingly served not too cold. Fairly standard ipa. The bitter and the biscuit are well balanced.

mile (2887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Light amber small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, caramel - some toffee, grassy - some citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and caramel sweetish flavor, grassy - herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, caramel - some toffee, lots of grassy - herbal hoppyness. Caramel sweetish IPA - too much caramel for me.
