planky84 (2307) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle from Eebria. Bloody hell I must of wrote this in a hurry... I think my near unintelligible scrawl says ’chestnut’ coloured pour, white head (it actually looks like ’chaste nun, what I said’) Aromas of toffee (toirse), caramel (that was an easier one to read) and citrus? (cars). Flavours of sweet citrus (looks like svelte chorus), caramel and some red fruit (rod fruc). Quite dry. Nice. Blimey! That was like transcribing Sanskrit!

AdiBeer (1763) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Aroma: tropical fruits, peaches, light straw, grain, intense floral hops. Appearance: slightly hazy, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: light carbonation, grains again, light bitters continuing, floral hops, dry finish. Overall: nice IPA / ESA excellent aroma, average palate. Bottle from the brewery via EeBria, Weston Market.

BOSSbrewer (2258) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle picked up at the brewery during the summer of 2013. Pours an amber brown with a thine fine tan head. Aroma is roasty and slight malt. Flavor follows. Also dark chocolate. Thin bodied. Decent beer. Very session able. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stravale (2370) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - DEC 22, 2014
Bottle from Eebria [181214]
Amber orange, clear, massive off white head, over carbonated
Aroma - soft sweet fruits, bit jammy, orange, red berry fruits, nice aroma
Taste of sweet fruits, sweet caramel malts, fruity malts, soft sweet cereal, very low amount of hops for an IPA
Palate - soft carb (eventually), medium body, bit oily, sweet. Finish as main flavour, sweet malts, tad of bitter hop comes though
Overall - Not really an IPA, but nice fruits in here, easy and quaffable

RichTheVillan (3947) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle from Eebria; hazy light copper pour with a bubbly off white head, caramel and malt aroma, taste has caramel, a slight hint of citrus, malts, hint of bitterness, ok.

madmitch76 (16890) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014

Lightly hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Light dry pale malts, touch of cream. Floral bitterness leads to a dry finish. It’s okay but there is no hop fruits here at all and there is a very long list of IPAs I would drink ahead of this.

prawlie (1227) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Clear light amber with a nice bubbly head. Yeasty aroma, with a hint of citrus malt. Tastes of pale malt, and dry hops. Its alright but nothing special.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - amber with a nice head. Nose - lemon and floral notes. Green vegetal notes probably elderflowers. Taste - lemon and herbs. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry but elegant finish. Overall - really enjoyable balanced beer.
