Scopey (10037) - Croydon, Greater London, - NOV 11, 2012
Keg at Brewdog Camden. It pours deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is pine, fresh citrus, green banana, earth and resin. The taste is pine, earth, leaf, sherbet, fresh citrus, tropical fruit (mango, passion fruit), resin and light alcohol, with a bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel as it warms up a touch. Flavoursome, well balanced and smooth. Highly drinkable.

Pours golden with fluffy white head. Huge American hop aroma, pine, dank, some grapefruit. Taste similar, pine, resinous hops, some more citrus and fruit than aroma. Excellent IPA

gegwilson (2389) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Bottle from Hippo Beers in Glasgow. Pours hazy amber with a frothy cream head. Nice citrusy aroma. The taste is quite sweet initially. Notes of caramel, pine and light spice before a lingering dry bitter finish. Tasty stuff.

Towey1989 (963) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Keg at smallBAR, Bristol. A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, resin, caramel, some orange, grapefruit, wood, slight liquorice and subtle peppery hops. Taste of grapefruit, caramel, pine, lots of resin and a little wood. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A bittersweet, resinous hop finish. Quite sweet overall but packed full of US resinous hops, very drinkable and tasty. Like a stronger amber ale.

Bottle @Il Santo Bevitore (Rome). Hazy golden appearance with a decent white head. Aroma is fruity (peach) with notes of citrus, grass and some tropical fruits. Taste is light bitter, a touch of malt and a bitter and quite dry end. Medium body, medium to high carbonation. Halfway between England and America. Quite good.

Rocky thin to medium dirty white head. Amber to ruby colour. Delightfully hoppy in the nose, with flower and apricot notes. Heavy bitter. Very good structure, a bit thick with spot on carbonation. A superb IPA.
