CanCrusher (884) - Ilirska Bistrica, - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden colour with white head, that leaves some nice lacing. Strong aroma of tropical fruits like mango, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon, orange and some piney notes. Very hoppy bitter taste, dragging all that fruits with it. Excellent beer!

Appearance is golden and clear with an orange tinge, a very small white head which doesn’t last long. Aroma- fresh tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, grapefruit, fresh hops, summer. Taste- fruity orange, bitter hops, pineapple juice, creamy malt, bitter finish. Clingy hop resiny finish, superb mouthfeel. Very nice British IPA.

A lovely fruity strong ale from one of my favourite breweries Oakham. Although it’s 6% I find it very moreish & easy to drink. Full of flavour & has a lasting head, great ale

Svesse (7720) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2016
(Bottle) Golden colour, slightly hazy, with frothy white head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, mango, passion-fruit, floral hops and biscuity malt. Malty, fruity taste with tropical fruit (mango, pineapple, passion-fruit), lemon, grapefruit, biscuits and a fairly dry finish with a generous piney bitterness and fresh floral hops. Medium body, mainly dry. Tasty and well made IPA in great balance and with a generous hop presence. Very nice.

beeebon (398) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Fantastic bargain from Home Bargains, 500ml bottle for £1.19!!! Easily on par with most American IPAs I have tried, rich resiny piney fruity aroma of passion fruit and citrus. Nicely balanced sweet and bitter taste and not watery at all, quite slick with long lasting foamy head leaving lots of lacing. Brilliant beer.

Saeglopur (1630) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 17, 2016
500 ml bottle, bb 10 Nov 2016. Courtesy of Werckmeister, thanks!
Golden, amber, clear body, with a medium, fluffy, moderately lacing, off-white head.
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, grass, flowers, some herbs, some passion fruit, candy.
Taste follows this, with some more pine and more fresh floral and herbal hemp like notes.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, lingering piney, zesty, floral, herbal.

Very nice. Interesting mix of citric notes, with floral and fresh herbal aromas. Very crisp and refreshing, with a lovely piney finish. Quite unique style example, but a really enjoyable one I would drink again.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Tap at brewery Pours bright orange hue with a small fizzy white head and some decent lacing. Nose is dank c hops all the way big citrus and pine. Undertones of honeysuckle and spice. Flavors are all big piney c hops resinous and somewhat dank. Big dry finish nothing left on the palate. Quite a nice ipa for sure. Maybe a bit less boil hops would benefit the harsh resin. Overall a very clean and well made brew.

JackMandarin (167) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from local Home Bargains (!) store for £1.19 (!)(!) Pours pretty clear. Just off-white head leaving some good lacing. Aroma is great! Sweetly perfumed with candied orange. Over-ripe mango. Juicy pineapple galore. Godd dankness. A whiff of something resinous clinging to the glass. Fresh hutch hay from the malt. Medium body. Sticky and sweet. Marmalade citrus . A growing bitterness coats the mouth. Great balance. Mouth watering finish. Need another sip! Medium to light carbonation. Solid stuff from a brewery that showed me how good beer could be back in the day!....and a complete and utter Bargain at Home!

AntonyWilson (95) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 1, 2016
500ml bottle: Pours a clear golden with a decent white head that persists. Aroma of citrus and pine. A nice resinous taste, not overpowering at all. Medium body with medium carbonation. Bitterness enhances the flavours of the hops. A decent maltiness, despite the colour. Overall a very pleasant IPA.
