Ruby pour with a frothy white head. Bursting with aromas and flavours. Malt, hops, berries, grapefruit, pine, caramel, nutmeg, grass, biscuit, yeast, booze. Deliciously refreshing and very moreish (be careful though it is 7% abv). Slightly sticky on the lips.

Keg at L’Express De Lyon, 14th August 2013. Agree with last couple of rates this is over rated. OK IPA, I have rated almost 200, this is average. Not too clean tasting, heavy and a little boozy, but drinkable

Keg at the Euston Tap - London. Pours clear amber with a foamy white head. The aroma holds lots of ripe and juicy citrus along with heavy pine. Medium sweet flavor, some earthy pine, alcohol, sticky citrus, grapefruit. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Resinous finish with heavy pine, grapefruit, earth, alcohol, toasted bread and orange. Must not be in top condition because this beer is average at best.

This is just an amazing IPA. Aggressive but finely balanced with both malt sweetness and hop bite. A really great beer I can't get enough of.

Bottle. Aroma has citrus hops and dark, fermented berries and dark fruits with plums as dominant. Aroma also has malty biscuits and caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel is a bit stingy but quite yeasty round. Flavor is consistent with aroma, though has the hops are more dominant with some caramel sweetness and minimal fruitiness. Aftertaste is bitter, quite mellow for an ipa in the beginning but adds up while drinking. Surprisingly malty and interesting aroma, good hops and decent bitterness but not as clean as I’d hope.

Pours murky light brown with a frothy white head that lasts well. Aroma of caramel maltiness, some citrus fruitiness and exotic notes - interesting, surprisingly malty. Taste is quite sweet at first for an IPA; bitterness balances the taste in the finish. Caramel features early, citrus, orange and pine later. Medium bodied, sticky palate with low to medium carbonation. Pleasantly surprising IPA: very balanced and tasty, not heavily bitter and initially also sweet.
