barnabeermane (43) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JAN 27, 2013
Presencia cristalina con espuma poco persistente. Muy aromatica a lupulo y especias. En sabor esta muy equilibrada, ligeramente astringente con resina y citricos, poco carbonatada muy buena

hawthorne00 (2256) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle, 11C. Clear pale gold with a white head that’s soon less than a coat. Intense lemon aroma with some leaves as well as zest, passionfruit and dusty mango, hay. Slightly oily. A little clean pale malt and some tropical fruit sweetness, plenty of bitterness. Tingling dry and bitter finish with pepper, lemon and mango. Just enough to back up the hops and they certainly shine.

Mortlach (959) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 16, 2013
16/01/2013 Bir&Fud Bottega (660ml bottle). Dorata viva, leggermente aranciata, limpida, schiuma bianca morbida abbondante, mediamente persistente. Al naso è potente e pungente, con sentori agrumati. In bocca è molto amara, monotona e stancante alla lunga, il corpo è medio-moderato e la carbonazione corretta. Discreta, ma non ha nulla dell’eleganza delle birre inglesi. Mi aspettavo di più.

stravale (1898) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle from Ninas, Edinburgh 110113
Light yellow, clear, thin white head, little lacing
Aroma - Very hoppy, juicy grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, quite resinous, zesty, fresh juicy hops here, light pale malt, great aroma
Taste as aroma, juicy hops, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, nice sweet very pale malt background, well balanced, good drinkability
Palate - Thin to medium body, fairly oily, easy drinking, bittersweet palate, sweet pale malts keeps it from getting too bitter. Finish as main flavour, fruity zesty bitter hops, not too dry, smooth and a bit oily
Overall - The best Oakham ale I’ve had - a really good IPA, one of the best UK ones I’ve tried

Just like bartender said - you love it or hate it. It smells like dirty clothes and taste follows well the aroma. I am certainly one of haters.

danlo (901) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
660ml bottle from The Crafty Pint, Darlington market. Pours a clear golden amber colour, foamy white head and a spicy fruity hop aroma with passionfruit, grapefruit & mango notes. Immediate hit of sharp tangy hop bitterness with fruity grapefruit and pine, and then a long lingering dry bitter finish. Medium bodied and well balanced. Very drinkable.

johninmelb (1117) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2012
Pungent nose filled with spicy hoppy notes of grapefruit, pink candy, pine needles and orange rind. Flavour follows the nose with a strong residual hop astringency in the finish that doesn’t throw this well-balanced IPA off kilter. Very tasty, well-hopped brew.

wyzzywyz22 (1885) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle from Beer Ritz, Leeds. Vivid golden pour with a nice white head. Big hoppy snout with plenty of tropical fruit notes that promised good things. The flavour duly delivered with the citra hops singing from the rooftops in tandem with juicy citrus and a little balancing sweet malt. Robust bitter finish. This ticked a lot of boxes for me.Top class.... Citra hops are the bomb.

Borresteijn (4405) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2012
66cl Bottle at UDRBM, from deeblo, thanks a lot Bruce! Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of huge Citra hops, citrus, tropical fruits, light ammonia, almost cloying. Flavour of very fresh citrus, crisp malts, zingy tropical fruits, lovely hoppy bitter finish. Great smooth IPA, of Kernel quality.
