Pours a nice amber colour with a thin white head. the aroma is light grapefruit and spice from the hops. light caramel sweetness and a medium bitterness not to hoppy so would make for a good starting point for someone new to IPA’s

A rich carmel color similar to pale ales but a bit more cloudy. The notes of the hops jump forth from the glass and immediately hit the whole tongue. The bitter units are rich but well blended into the overall flavor of the beer. If you like an IPA with a bit more, then try this.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 355 ml bottle. Pours a very deep amber/brown -- beer bottle-coulour -- with thin, foamy white head. Aroma of roasted Corn Flakes with resiny (weedlike) hops. Flavour is very bitter. Medium-bodied with a flat mid-palate blank spot that gives it a soda water quality. Abrupt finish; the bitter hopiness disappears quickly after each sip. More flash than substance.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml brown bottle. Pours out orange, clear. Fat off-white head with a rocky top. Good lace rings. Nose has fruity orange, a bit zesty. Taste has nice grapefruity and orange peel like hops up front, sweet malt middle with light caramel. Finishes with light graepfruity bitterness, thins out a bit at the end. Light to medium body, big carbonation. Decent session ale.

Poured out a wonderful deep amber color with a large and compact light tan head and filthified my glass. I didn’t really expect this much English malts. Creamy. After a bit of a sit the light hops have mostly faded into memory.... orange..... orange........ I made a mistake letting this open up. The taste is pretty good and would be a pretty safe option for an intro into the craft beer scene. Orange, light peppery spice and a watery bitterness, caramel and biscuit, mellow mellow mellow. Smooth feel with mild bubbs. I heard that this is exactly what little blue penguin teeth taste like from a friend of a friend of a friend. As boring as listening to you tell me anything.

Spruce,hops, smooth,loads of flavour off the get-go. A very interesting example of an IPA, but not your typical IPA.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with a massive crown floating on top reducing to the always popular nipple cap. Lacing is ridiculous!! BIG citrus aroma, lemon, orange peel, a sharpness is here but what is it? Taste is not as good as the aroma seems watered down and thinner but still yummy. Hoppy bitterness with a light citrus flavor, malts are smooth and nondescript. The after taste is all wood. I could drink this all day long.
