Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle at JF’s, thanks to my wingman DW for gifting this one, 09/06/13. Lightly hazed orange amber with a decent off white head. Nose is summer fruits, bitter orange, caramel, sugars, malt, light piss. Taste comprises earthy hops, grass, orange pith, malts, light tropical notes. Medium bodied with a little oomph, fine carbonation, bitterness in the finish. Ok stuff - not an IPA in the US sense that RB would expect, more a strong golden blonde if such a style existed.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2013
500 ml bottle. A cloudy dark orange body with a thin off-white head. Aroma has caramel malt and floral hops. Flavor is quite light and refreshing with caramel malt, moderate bitterness for an IPA and some fruit. Medium body and some bitterness in aftertaste. Nothing special, but no faults and otherwise rather pleasant thirst quencher.
