What a wonderful beer. Evocative for me...of what I wonít say. A great, truly American IPA. Rather different from an English IPA, and it shows in both the aroma (how can that be bettered?) and the flavour. Balanced and very hoppy, and what hops: Styrian, Fuggle, Cascade and Centennial. A great combination, and with an exquisite maltiness. Oh Cascade!

Aroma: Nice and fresh. Fruit like mango, strawberries and of course orange and grapefruit. Also, some resinous elements.
Mouthfeel: Medium oily body.
Taste: Mmmm. Bitter and crisp. Hoppy, but on a good, balanced malt background. A lot of citrus goodness. Not as agressive as brewdogs and flying dogs:)
Finish: Bitterness that lasts and lasts. Citrus notes carry on to a tannic feel.
Overall: Definitely a winner. Delicious and round. Very very enjoyable indeed.

Beautiful fruity and floral hoppiness stands out. Malting is caramelly sweet. Like this aroma a lot. Colour is like hazy honey. Short dense head leaves lacing. Taste is like walking in a garden: flowers, fruits, parfym-like flavors. Gorgeous taste has nuances and lots of character. Fresh and perky, light with nice carbonation.
Arrived in India.Stop. Hot and excotic here. Stop. Luckily I have little bit of homeland in a bottle here with me. Stop. Hard being separeted, Victoria, miss you. End of message.

Clear amber with off white head. Aroma of hops, hops, citrus and hops. Tasteis similar but with an added sweet fruitiness. Even though this is a highly rated ipa, I think it is ununderrated. Great but slightly different ipa.

During a time when IIPAs and IIIPAs are becoming more and more the norm rather than the exception, it is nice to see a beer that stays true to the English IPA style. Pours a very light copper, somewhat brilliant with golden highlights, good head with decent retention and fine lacing. Thereís a distinct fruitiness that jumps out in the aroma which is slightly floral with a very light dose of citrus. Thereís also a slight ester from the malt that comes across as biscuit and light tobacco. It tastes lightly sweet which quickly dissipates into a moderately dry finish. Very satisfying and drinkable. Theyíve kept the body light enough to enjoy more than one pint. Thereís a chewy malt and fruity yeast characteristic which is unmistakably English. A beautiful beer and a classic example of the style.

This is a great IPA. Very drinkable. Also appreciate the fact that this one is lightly dry malted, making it crisper than other IPAs. Abv is not quite in the 7 range or higher. And due to alcohol levels can result in being on the sweeter side, and this one isnít . Cheers!

Copper-orange color. Citrus and fruity aroma. Little bitter and malty. Slightly weak character as IPA, but I like this taste. One of my best beer!!

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 I love beers like this. Aroma is grapefruit and gooseberry out its nut. Taste is similarly full of citrus flavours with sweetness coming off the malts, not a big bold chewy body, but a good sweetness, to make it one of the most drinkable beers iv had in a month or two. Get me a case of this so i can have a few days off.
