Bottle at Rake in London. Pleasant hoppy aroma. Taste is a good balance between hops, maltiness and bitter. Definitely not the most extreme or expressive ipa, but very well balanced.

Strong aromatic smell of rich hops and subtle spice, well balanced full flavoured IPA, uniquely different.

Big malty beer balanced with plenty of woody, piney, earthy hops. A very good, big beer. Rated by BrewTom

A really fabulous IPA. Has the nice bitterness of the hops but a lovely malty fruit element to it as well. Really nice.

Couleur cuivre tirant sur l orange Nez propre, agrume, fruit a noyaux, caramel et vanille. Reste discret pourrait etre plus expressif. Bouche ronde et veloutée, malté, bon equilibre avec le houblon. Palais amer avec une belle longueur, petite pointe alcoleuse en fin. Dans l ensemble bonne IPA, mais inutillement forte en alcool 7.5 pour le profil. Je rachète quand meme

Dark golden hazy, white head with lots of lacing. Powerful all-hops aroma. Caramel, malty sweetness, lingering bitterness, citruses. Textbook ipa.

BPBrewCrew (18) - Batavia, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2014
"The name means Naked Island" - according to label. So be prepared to be exposed - exposed to sheer "hoppiness". A thicker, opaque brew with intentional hop remnants leaves you feeling satisfied. Upon sampling, An "O" face and comedic banter followed with all of the makings of a fun night. And for those of you that know me, you can appreciate that a good beer can only ascend to greatness when accompanied by childish fun. And this beer made me feel like a kid. Albeit a grown up version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A fantastic and complete ipa - rich, earth tones, honeylaced, citrusy and aggressively hopped. Magnificent.

Bottle. Hazy, amber colour with a lot of yeast particles inside. Brilliant head. Aroma: malty, candy, spicy, earhy and just hints of hops. Intensive grapefruit peel in taste and also huge malty base. Caramel, citrus dry sourness, pine, some disturbing alcohol notes recognizable at the end. Better in higher temp.
