Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique June 2013, golden orange colour with a decent head. Hoppy without killing the pallet.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Cask at The Front, Falmouth, Cornwall. Friendly staff, decent selection, good bar. Clear gold with a thick lasting white head. Aroma is nice, citrus hops, rubber, some honey. Flavour is pine, juicy hops, toffee. Medium carbonation, nice creamy hop finish. Pretty decent stuff this.

Davros (1897) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours amber with a quick fading head. Very malty aroma, big honey and golden syrup notes. more barleywine than DIPA. Still good though. Pretty similar flavours, big bready, honey and nutty malt notes with just a little earthy hops. Body feels a bit watery, needs some carbonation.

DanielBrown (3777) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle from Connollys Wines, Snow Hill, Birmingham. Pours a bit flat, with a muted aroma of sweet stewed hops gluted with malt loaf. Somewhat lacking in intensity - in both flavour and mouthfeel. It certainly doesnít offend and does improve. Warming.

hawthorne00 (2401) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle, 13C. Bright gold with a small white head that doesnít last long. Aroma of oranges, resin, peach and hay. Very low carbonation. Sweet at first - Opal Fruits!, then lots of bitter oranges. Finishes towards dry with lingering bitter oranges and . An odd beer that grew on me - it seems a bit thin and lacking a real malt presence at first, then the way the sweet fruits lead into the bitter finish starts to cohere. A little bit of retsina about it.

graham_murphy (275) - - JUN 10, 2013
Love IPAs, liked this one. Ok so itís not terribly exciting. But it is very smooth and subtle with citrusy, orangey hops and a little on the sweet side. For a double IPA the taste of hops is well maintained.

JohnRMurdoch (3240) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2013
330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Hazy orange arbour, not much head. Biscuit resin malt aroma. Resin malt flavour. A bit watery. Disappointing beer.

CraftBeerNick (861) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
Bottle at home 24th march 2013. On open this smells too sweet, pours clear. Taste is too sweet, not enough carbonation and no bitter balance, not a good IPA, there is a metallic taste also. I managed to drink it easily though, does not seem 7 %

jamestulloch (1320) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Aroma: Dry, dusty hop aroma. Caramel, toffee and orange.

Appearance: Deep amber, clear body. No head, no carbonation, no lacing. This is one ugly beer...

Taste: A bit on the harsh side. No hop bitterness, in fact itís quite sweet for a DIPA - caramel and toffee. Quite boozy.

Palate: Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Flat carbonation.

Overall: This bottle showcased the Nugget hop. Unfortunately, itís easily the worst beer Iíve had from the usually excellent Harbour - flat, dull and overly sweet.
