330ml bottle from Beers52.com. Bright amber with a thin white head; tropical fruit aroma; thick, oily body with a good dosing of hops, giving a spicy bitterness and a lasting clean finish. A pleasant IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle poured into an Old Speckled Hen badged pint vase at home on 16th Feb 2015. Extremely lively pour with a huge white foaming head that filled the glass before I had a chance to stop pouring. It settled down OK and a pale golden body began to appear as the bubbles calmed and popped. Good hoppy nose with a hint of the bitterness to come: which it does by the bucket load in the taste. Really hop bitter in every corner, but in a good way. I really enjoyed this: during a random Monday tasting session with myself and Bertie, the dog!

Cask at Ship Inn North Berwick. Creamy with head that lasts and laces al down glass. Had three pints. It does have quiite a strong lemony grapefruit finish. I agree with comment that likens it to a stronger Deuchars. Both in strength and taste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle at home. Pours golden, maybe a little pale for an IPA? Strong grapefruit aroma, taste is citrus with a slight chalky taste. Decent but nothing special

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow beer with a thick bubbly head and strong aroma of grapefruit. Flavour is more lemony, with a dry hoppy twist and a rather airy finish. The flavour doesít linger much but itís a crisp, dry and refreshing beer.

The taste saves this one with a hops characteristic that you canít get from a lower grade beer, at a reasonable cost. Worth a try.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home from alesela
hazy mid golden blonde with herbal aroma. Medium body and carbonation but fairly malt led and thus missing a hoppiness that is required in this style. A decent golden/ apa but not an IPA

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, thanks goes to Lonick! Poured into a tulip glass, ABV 5%
Golden yellow colour on the body, with a small and thin white head on top, average retention, light lacing on the glass. Body is crystal clear.
Aroma is light hoppy, has grass, light citrus.
Taste is nice and light hoppy, grass, malts, mildly bitter with the bitterness going all the way to the aftertaste and with good duration there too.
Thin body, good carbonation and good dryness on the palate.
Overall not bad at all, goes down smoothly and very quickly.
