Cask at the hanging bat. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Aromas of light citrus and grains. Taste is light sweet, floral, light citrus, dusty malt. Strange astringent finish.

cirzen (14) - FRANCE - OCT 26, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours lovely amber, little head retention. Nose is citrus and grapefruit, slightly pine. Bold bitterness which lingers. Citrus on the palate, alcohol warmth right at the end. Would be fantastic on a hot day.

Good citrus tang on the palate, together with a full IPA taste. Looks the part - would drink again.

ianwelby (597) - SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Clear golden beer with a grassy citrus aroma. Flavour is grassy and floral citrus with a bitter-sour follow-up. Light but rich. A touch cooler and it’d be my perfect sunny afternoon beer.

leaparsons (8576) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle. Pale gold with an off white foam. Aromas are caramel and cereal grain with mango. Lemon with grapefruit and lime peel. Mellow oranges with honey. Flavours are sweet honey and lemon with grain. Piney with bittersweet grapefruit. Smooth bodied with citrus rind pithiness. Dry on the finish. I liked it.

Holmen1 (3119) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
Nok en flaske importert sjøveien av skibsrederen, og delt broderlig på rbhd-samling hos Odd Gunnar: fint skum etc men litt sur humlearoma. Ikke spesielt selv om de har brukt hvetemalt i tillegg til byggmalt, og den er "originally brewed in memory of George Dittrich - friend of the brewery, renowned local caracter and lover of hops", men "contains barley malt and wheat". No hops after all? Highly misleading information.

gunnar (5975) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear golden with a tiny white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus and marmelade. Taste is moderate bitter, light crisp bitter, sweet marmelade, not bad at all.

3.2
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Sigmund (5462) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting, thanks to Holmen2. ABV is 6.0%. Clear deep golden to orange colour, moderate to low white head. Nice and "typically English" aroma, toffee, caramel and sourish hops. Much the same elements in the flavour too, but less nice - seems a bit unbalanced. Drinkable, but far from the best IPA I’ve had.
