adnielsen (10089) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a white head that disappears in no time. Medicinal, herbal hoppy, horrible aroma. Toasty malty, herbal hoppy, horrible macro flavor. One of the worst beers I’ve ever had and definitely the worst IPA I’ve ever had.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Bottled 14/09/13. A brown beer with a grey head. A malty beer with brown fruits. A fusty edge. Sweet and low hopped. It does want it sets out to do quite well and there’s nothing nasty but it is a bit shallow.
