Tap at oreillys, ny. Hazy light golden color, white head. Nice smooth hoppy nose. Smooth bitter like palate, citrus notes, hops, malts.

weordie (715) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Pours golden with a big head that quickly dissipates. Quite a nice aroma but the taste is a bog standard ale.

thmsboyd (193) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2016
355mL bottle BBE: 08.10.16. Medium chill (approx. 10 degrees). Pours an amber body with heavy haze and a small, fairly loose, off-white head. Some lacing. Surprisingly low intensity nose, giving only faint citrus and brioche bun. A light-medium, biscuity sweetness is followed by a medium-high bitterness with a hint of astringency and nutty dryness. Light-medium bodied with a slightly coarse texture, medium-high carbonation and astringency in the finish. Far from fresh, I’d even suggest this had an infection if it wasn’t such a well-established beer. Maybe the handling has been poor, but it’s completely lacking in fresh, fruity hop aromas.

aleksander9 (1226) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2016
White with bubbly head. Citrus, floral and spicy. Light, crisp, yeast and some metal finish. Overall: nothing special.

One of the best IPA that i have tried. At the the beginning the taste is bitter but in the end is quite sweet.

Perfectly fine beer. Maybe not as sexy as some others, but a standby that lifts its weight without the hype and over expense.

It pours a cooper color with a white head. There are aromas of caramel and pine with hints of floral elements. It has flavors of caramel and floral with the caramel being moderate in the taste. The pine is faint. It has a moderately high bitter finish.
