DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2007
Hazy orange beer with thin but firm white head. Fresh hoppy aroma with notes of acid and spices. Bitter flavour with notes of fresh hops and citrus. Sweet and fruity. Then comes the bitterness from hell. Ooooh I love it. This is a real IPA, the english way.

Assaggiata in bottiglia da 50 cl. Colore giallo oro carico e intenso. Schiuma fine, abbondante e compatta. L’aroma è intenso e profumato, maltato e fruttato. Il gusto è pieno, con un buon corpo. Piacevolissimo il finale amarognolo prolungato. Ottima.

Aroma is fresh with citrus and pine, sweet malting. Inviting. Slightly hazy coppery amber. Creamy head is quite long. Bit sparkly. Good balance. Long fresh and crisp flavor. Full bodied, soft feel. Really liked this one. Nice flavors, good balamce, easy to drink and enjoy.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Medium gold, nice head, gorgeous sheet of lace. Aroma was very faintly resiny, and an odd touch of lemon. Flavor started off with a good burst of English hops, faintly pine, faint grapefruit, but all bitter, moving into a gentle caramel finish. Hop bitterness lasts on the tongue. Refreshing, truly enjoyed this.

Foam slowly climbs out of the bottle shortly after opening. The large shouldered bottle makes for a glugging pour till you get the flow rate right. This glugging pour only adds to an already large beige colored head that lasts, big and chunky head that it is. Appearence is clear with a light copper hue, an attractive brew. Bottle conditioning is clearly evident as the clumps of yeast sediment are clearly visible in the bottle. Lacing is sticky and abundent. Lovely, fresh,flowery hop nose thats also lightly citrusy, grassy. Gotta be the first big hop nose from an English Ale that i,ve ever really been able to appreciate. Fresh and clean, very nice! Body is med/light, crisp, lightly tingly. Dry malt flavors, light toastiness, caramel notes backed up by a large fresh hoppyness thats lightly citrusy and spicey, impressive! Finish is dry and fruity with a just right hop bite. This has got to be the best bottle of English Ale i,ve had in awhile. The freshest tasting ever! Nice quaff! Just fresh all around! Nice.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - FEB 27, 2006
From a shaped 500ml. narrow neck brown bottle with a blurb about the IPA and a lot number on the back label. Made a very good appearance, poured a semi-hazy orange hued golden with a large frothy white head that slowly reduced to a thin bubbly lacing. Had a tasty aroma, a fresh piney, citrus hoppy, spicy, earthy and a subtle bready maltiness. Good carbonation and a smooth, textured medium bodied mouth feel, very good drinkability. Delicious tasting, a gentle rolling citric hop bitterness, some fresh cut piney notes as well, mildly herbal, an underlining sour bread maltiness and a dry, crisp, sweetly bitter finish.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2006
Bottle. Golden with a fluffy off-white head. Aromas are spicy pine hops with sweet citrus, floral notes and minimal malts. Flavours are dry and bitter pine with herbal notes. Quite oily and resinous, it packs a big hops punch. Citrus bitterness on the finish with a long aftertaste. Lots of flavour for a mid strength IPA.
