COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled. Filtered and force-carbonated.<br /> "Dr Okells is an extremely light coloured beer with a surprising full bodied taste, the sweetness is offset by a very strong hopping rate. That gives the finished beer an over all roundness with very spicy lemony notes and a fine dry finish to counteract the initial sweetness."

DuffMan (6168) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2009
Clear golden yellow with a frothy white head that leaves generous lace. Perfumey fruity aroma. Clean honey-malt palate with lovely perfumey fruit (lychee, citrus) hop character. A terrific example of the English-style IPA!

altonbrownd (4618) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2009
From Utobeer. Golden body with decent head. Malty nose with citrus. Nice hoppy taste, with grapefruit notes, then gets maltier. Bitter finish. Good stuff.

Gr0ve (2114) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2009
500 ml bottle. Golden with something that resembles a whiteish haze. Small fine-laced white head that clings to the glass. Medicinal and earthy hop aroma. Hints of citrus. Crisp hop bitterness initially. Then mealy maltiness. Quite dry and powdery. Lightbodied and watery, but there is a nice crisp and sharp hoppy bite that lingers in the finish. Nice and refreshing.

jgb9348 (4493) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2009
Lightly hazy crisp golden coloured body with a thinnish white head and a bunch of bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of hay, lemons, limes, yeast and coriander seed - more of a trip or a belgie than an IPA. Light-bodied; Sharp citrus flavour up front with a touch of hops and a bit more yeast following. Aftertaste shows sharp hops, a little malt and some more lemons - interesting! Overall, more of a light wheat or a mild belgian ale than a bitter or IPA, but even there, itís a bit underflavoured. I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased from the Utobeer Market Stall in Borough, London, England on 13-December-2008, sampled at home in Washington on 26-January-2009.

Sigmund (4825) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2009
500 ml bottle, bought at ICA Middelthon, Stavanger. ABV is 4.5%. Golden colour, big white head. Fairly strong aroma of hops, first flowery, then more citrussy and lightly spicy. The flavour is distinctly hoppy throughout, with grapefruity notes, and has just enough malts to balance it. Pleasant (if somewhat sharp) bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. I donít know which variety(ies) of hops they have used here - possibly Progress? A nice and refreshing ale this one - will buy again.

Rune (7361) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2009
A 500ml bottle of Celtic ale from Isle of Man bought at Centra Colosseum Park in Oslo. Golden body under a huge, dense white head. Display of good glass-lacing. Inviting aroma of fruit-oily hops. Modest fruity flavour with grapefruit and lemon. Ends up with a soft bitter twist [hotel room, Thon Munch, Oslo 22.01.2009].

OleR (4608) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2009
500 ml bottle. A big dense, mostely diminishing white head leaving fine laces. Body is copper colored with a slight haze. Sharpish, citrussy fruit aroma. Notes of grainy, maybe bready malts and grassy hops. Taste is fairly dry, has a low malt base, some citrus-fruity tones and a resiny and earthy bitterness. Medium body. Dry, sharp malty finish.
