gegwilson (2197) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2015
Keg in the Brew Dock, Dublin. Golden with a white head. Nice grapefruit aroma. The taste is quite sweet with tropical fruits - pineapple, mango and grapefruit. Very light spice too. Pleasant lingering bitter finish. Moderate carbonation giving a full mouthfeel. Good.

weordie (372) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2015
Pours copper with a foamy head. Aroma is a bit dull, some floral notes but not much. A little over carbonated. Taste is a bit dull as well, the hops in this have died I hope because there’s a slight malt taste and nothing else.

When I returned from California I struggled to find a good IPA. Most places don’t have IPA and the ones they do are not great. Then by chance I came across this nice bitter beauty. This is now my favourite drink.
