This beer is brewed for those who appreciate the pure pleasure of the Hop. The malt comes through, but its not long before the hops take over! Aromatic, bitter and a bit strong, this beer graduated from the more is better school.

GBBF. Cask - presumably a special as there was nothing like a 6.0% IPA on the database before I added it. Description taken from the GBBF Programme. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate with superfine carbonation. A fair amount of grain with a dash of honey. Mild tangerine - orange citrus with a whisper of peach. Mild fresh hop spice. Carbonated sting in the finish. Another great condition cask US beer at GBBF - BSF have done a great job!

Clear amber beer. Little suddy head. Nice caramel malt base. Good tangy orange hops on top. Not too bitter. Well balanced.

Not the best IPA Iíve ever had. Aroma is mostly citrusy grapefruit. Only a mild hoppiness. Donít know if it was a bad bottle, but it was also pretty watery. ehh. not so good

Dark amber pour with fairly thick white head, some hop astringency on the nose, flavors of bitter citrus peel. There is something in this that I canít put my finger on that is rubbing me the wrong way, perhaps the buckwheat? But I donít know.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a rather too-large frothy white head that took a good long while to settle down. The nose is lightly citrusy with a touch of pale malt, and light caramel. The flavor is just lightly bitter with a little citrus and floral notes. The hops are a little too light to qualify for IPA levels as far as Iím concerned, but I guess we call it what they call it eh? Finishes with a mix of light brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Light bodied with a little clinginess and soft fizzy carbonation. This is an APA at best, and not even a great one of those.

Light citrus and old caramel aroma. Hazy orange color. Blunt bitter, dry grainy finish. Crisp at first, fades out to a mellower finish.

Tap at Opa Opa, Southampton, 20/05/13. Clear golden with a thin off white head. Nose is pale malts, grass, citrus. Taste comprises light grapefruit, hops, caramel malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, touch of hop bitterness in the finish. Ok IPA.

Drat at brewpub. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much in the tongue or nose. Finishes clean. Pretty boring for style.

Pours a fairly clear medium golden color with a huge meringue head that prevented me from pouring this in one shot. Smells of citrus and a hint of pine. Heavy on the grapefruit and lemon with a fairly solid bready sweet malt backbone. The flavor follows the aroma bread citrus and pine with a faint hint of wild yeasty phenols. Medium body with a huge amount of carbonation and a slick resinous mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, nothing special, but nothing objectionable either.
