500ml bottle @ ÷stra Station. Clear amber medium size white head. Grassy aroma with some caramel and floral notes. Smooth and light mouthfeel. Mid-hoppy taste the malt is just as prominent, citrus zesty, floral and earthy notes.

mrjez (194) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 20, 2015
L: pours a deep orange-gold with a lovely finger of creamy head, plenty of lacing. S: quite bland aroma, mainly a toffee malt, quite earthy. T: upfront malt and grassy hop, a hint of sweetness. F: has a big dry finish with some mild hop bitterness. Very drinkable. O: pleasant to drink, but no distinguishing features to make me seek it out again.

StueyD (1542) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2015
A mid Amber gold coloured beer with a thick and frothy white head. A light, but noticeable hop aroma, some citrus fruit and grassy. Dry mouthfeel. The taste continues the hop theme, a mild bitterness, citrusy and grassy, oily and a touch piney. There is a hint of dry biscuity malt in the background. The finish is bitter and hoppy.

brewtalita (87) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2015
Coppery golden, frothy white head with lacing. Aroma typical english hops and bits of caramel and biscuit. High carbonation which is shame. Taste of light crystal malt quickly subsiding to hoppy body. Citrus fruit, light grape and green ripe apple notes. Massive dry bitter finish with lots of english character from Golding hops. Very good, very english.

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
500ml Bottle from Tesco, Gilesgate, Durham. Pours deep amber/copper with large rocky, frothy off-white head but less noticeable carbonation than many bottle conditioned beers. Nose is less pronounced than with many modern IPAs but tropical fruit, vanilla, rubber and pine are detectable. Floral hop and an earthy, woody flavour dominate with a sharp bitterness that is a little thin on the palate as well as the hard to pin down plastic flavour often found in beers at a higher ABV than this one. On the whole itís nothing special, but still a decent, crisp, old-fashioned IPA.
