@ BBF ’11. The aroma is very citric, orange, lemon, some grass. Slightly hazy, golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is malty, bitter, citric. Clean and fresh. Nice one.

Very grape-fruity both in aroma and flavour. Brownish orange in colour with a large off-white head, there was lots of citrus fruits in the aroma and some caramel with a taste of grapefruit’s and bitter oranges. Flavour is all about the hop and has some nice balance between the citrusy fruits and the caramel malt backbone, loved it.

patricks110 (2128) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2015
Very British style malt with heavy biscuit malts. I like it but not what I expected. Pours a dark cloudy amber with a thick beige head. The nose is citrus heavy with big lemon and grapefruit notes, heavy biscuity and toffee malt notes that complement and also outweigh the hops. A nice finesse with the biscuity malts in the profile that gives a good sweetness to bitter balance. Lingers with citrus fruits and a light florality. Overall a bit of an unusual IPA

BiddleBrau (1031) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Tap at Iron Abbey. Golden with lacey white head. Light clean citrus nose. Hop bite but flavor is lighter. Malt is well positioned here. Subsequent sips bring a bit more cloying hop finish.

HaraldB (18) - NORWAY - JUL 17, 2015
Aroma av sitrus og honning. Ikke veldig typisk ipa. God smak av det samme, samt karamell. Ganske søt. Avslutter bittert. Spennende brygg som stikker seg ut i mengden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mørk gylden med lavt skum. Aroma av sitrus og blomster. Søt sak, med en mild bitterhet i ettersmaken. Appelsin/sitron i smaken. Atypisk IPA. Medium konsistens.

Flat medium amber with small fully diminishing head. Nice combination of medium body and hops. Not too much of fruits for my taste. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is average. Ok.
