330ml bottle. Orange-brown amber colour, foam white head leaving alittle lacing and aroma of mango, peach, orange citrusy hop resin. Taste is caramel malt, juicy tropical fruits with grapefuit & pine bitterness. Soapy mouth feel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry lingering bitter finish. Very drinkable IPA.

Bottle from Corks of Cotham. Mmm, yummy hopfest in this one. Overcarbed though, but aside form this minor detraction an excellent tasting IPA with tons of citrus, tropical fruits and spicy pine notes. And that Nelson Sauvin lemonadey quality. Great.

Lovely aroma, all sorts of fruits and the galaxy hop is definitely noticeable. If this beer was made by one of the "cool" breweries it would be even more popular.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Outstanding aroma - massive tropical beautifulness. Mouthfeel is fizzy like a mythical/historical tram journey down Narborough Road (Leics), conjured from black and white photographs in Fenwicks (Leics). The white art deco tram stop is still there - look for it. Great IPA. Salopian really are a top, top brewery these days. No bias here. They are outstanding.

330ml, Beer Gonzo. Intense aroma of..well, gelatinous confectionery, Cointreau, cats, mint leaf, grapefruit and grenadine syrup soft pungency. Dank old orange, fennel and Deep Heat impressions. Misted copper-orange piled with moussey froth. Soapy, pungent, orange marmalade flavour with peppery heat, husk, mint humbug and honey. Mellow honeyed bitterness finish with a nut husk linger. Salopian raising the bar and pushing my descriptors with this one.

(Draught. Oliver Twist Stockholm). Lovely aromas of hops, fresh with notes of sweet tropical fruits such as mango and apricot. The taste is the same as the aroma, sweet tropical hops, but unfortunately the taste becomes a little off because of the lack of carbonation. So excuse me all "Real ale lovers" but I really think that carbonation would lift the flavors in this ale...

Bottle. Smell is fresh citrus, resinous pine, lemon, apple and lychee. Taste is all modern IPA - pine, citrus, but with a bitter biscuit nuttiness too it that i guess comes from the malted barley. Wonderful combination of hops. Can’t wait to try more from this producer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a sligthly hazy, deep orange colored beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma of grapefruits, pine and other citrussy hoppy notes. Flavor is fairly bitter and poweful, despite reasonable low abv. Long, light bitter finish.
