Has a good perfumy detergent aroma with some soft malt. Okay head and golden body. Flavour is nice sharp hop characteristics. Kind of weak on the mouth. Itís just an okay IPA.

Garrold (4018) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Clear, pale gold. Messy, white head. Nose has sweet, caramel malts. Pear juice. Light, peach notes. Taste is fruity sweet. Get some fruity esters, that isnít so great. Mouthfeel is a little soapy. Light bitterness on the finish. Not for me, this one.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2016
Cask-conditioned at the Lime Kiln, Bristol 24/2/2016. Slightly hazy gold, with a billowy white head. Grassy hop aroma with a touch of tropical fruit. Flavour had some sweetish cereal malts, more fruits, and a decent, dryish finish. Enjoyable.

theprof (449) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2015
Appearance hazy gold. Bubbly top. Aroma grapefruit. Taste is fittingly sharp with citrus very dominant. This cuts against the resinous feel on the palate. Fair enough but DD can do better.

AshtonMcCobb (5036) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 16, 2015
On cask at the Pheasant bin Wellington. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head and a slight haze. Nose - grapefruit and yeast. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry bitter finish. Overall - good but a bit on the too bitter side.

Fin (9356) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Jacks (Westholme Stores) Goring on Thames, Oxon, consumed at home Thursday 21st May 2015 Crystal clear gold, sparkling, looks great, white head. Taste is rather drab, some biscuity malt lacks a fresh crisp bite, no zing or fruitiness, just very forgettable, nothing wrong with it at all just unexciting. A6 A5 T5 P3 Ov10 2.9

Towey1989 (1656) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, mango, pineapple, some caramel and grassy hops. Taste of sweet pineapple, dry orange, resin, cereal malts and grassy hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a syrupy texture. A bittersweet, orange and resinous finish. Well hopped, complex and bittersweet but syrupy and not what I was expecting. Ok but not a great APA/IPA.
