MiP (13676) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle, 6.5%. Mild, refreshing hop aroma, soft fruit, mango and the like. Hazy golden colour. Good stable white head, slightly creamy. The flavour is nicely malty and hop spicy. A little on the sweet side for an English IPA, but good. Refreshing, citrus-like bitterness, quite good.

Bamsen78 (3244) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours slitly hazy golden with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of hops, with notes of citrus and fruit. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with citric notes, touches of lemon peel and hints of grass. Bitter finish. A decent, unpretentious IPA.

Martin243 (787) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle from the shop on Holy Island, served cool. Orange with a fluffy white head. Burnt Sugar aroma. Orange marmalade and marzipan in the flavour, with some zesty floral hops. Definitely an English version of an IPA. Nice alcohol kick. I’ve yet to be disappointed by this brewery.

Bottled 500ml @Beer Hunters
Slightly hazy golden-amber color, good creamy white head. Fruity hoppyness in the nose. Light to medium-bodied. Grapefruity kind of grainy maltyness. Long lingering grapefruity aftertatse. English IPA with American twist.

Holmen1 (2603) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2013
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: en lett og god, velbalansert ipa med fin aroma. Noe kort ettersmak. Ikke totalt overbevisende men med sin lettdrikkelighet kan den fort gi ganglag for sjelen. Skulle vært gøy å prøve den fra cask. Med litt flaks, neste gang på Charlie’s?
