ianwelby (1109) - 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.

minutemat (4437) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
500ml bottle from either Beermoth or Trafalgar Wines. Try as I might I just can’t remember. Bucketloads of piney, mandarin hops which, after a rather bland, hugely disappointing local bitter, just about turned things around this evening. Kirkstall Brewery I have my eye on you.

zacgillbanks (4540) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This hazy pale golden beer has tropical fruit and sharp citrus flavours, woody notes and pineapple and grapefruit on the 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.

Beersiveknown (5065) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle at home from ales by mail after reading review from Leigh good stuff
Hazy mud blonde with fluffy white head collapsing to lacing mandarin cheesecake aroma, medium carbonation and body, no sign of any booze, peaches and mandarins and a chalky bitterness with a long dry fruity apricot finish. Perfectly balanced and enjoyable.

JonMoore (2066) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle - copper coloured with moderate sized white head. Citrus and peach aroma, some sweet malts. Similar in the taste, nicely hoppy, nice oily mouthfeel, long hoppy bitter finish. Well put together, nice.

johndoughty (5006) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Yellow and poured with a small head. Pleasant hoppiness with some grapefruit in the background. Slightly bitter finish .An excellent example of this style.

dogbomb (1152) - ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin white top. Nose is super pungent. Lots of fruits - mango, pineapple, peach, nectarine, grapefruit. More fruit intenseness in the mouth, with some warming sweet malts. This is incredibly tasty stuff in the American/Double IPA vein. Real quality.

AWS9 (648) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Cask. Pours a somewhat boring orangey-gold with no head, kinda meh. But fairly prominent hops, grassiness, bitterness. Maybe a bit of citrus in there too. Alcohol adds warmth and balance rather than harshness. Very good IPA, quite dependable, if not a standout.

RichTheVillan (6817) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear straw yellow pour with large off white head, grapefruit aroma, grapefruit comes through in the taste oily mouthfeel, great level of bitterness, some oranges, delightful stuff.
