Cask handpump at The Wellington, Birmingham. Golden with a short head. A very floral, fruity, apricot scent. Hardly any carbonation. Well balanced in the mouth with a sweet end, without being sickly. Fruity and nice.

MichaelAwesome (3920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Classy one with that special citrus and hops in your nose. Some grass, vanilla and leaves also. Very drinkable, bit watery but a really fine brew in the end.

McTapps (3923) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle from my Summer Santa - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep golden-light amber colour with low head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops, spices and herbs. Taste of fresh hops, spruce, pine, wild flowers, wild herbs and mild spices. Wonderful beer with a medium bitter finish. Enjoyed it a lot.

Hazy copper with a large off-white white head. Great aroma of marmalade and pine. Flavours of citrus, malt, pine resin, tropical fruit. Moderate sweetness gives way to a robust but not overwhelming bitter finish. Medium bodied, very slight oily, moderate to high carbonation. A lovely IPA.

Draught at Y Delyn Wine Bar, Mold. Pours a hazy orange with a bold, long lasting white head. Aroma is orange zest, hops and marmalade. Taste is dry and nicely hopped with plenty of zesty tropical fruit. Very nice IPA indeed!

Sjohnh (148) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Very nice APA; well balanced between the fruitiness and the bitterness, which is slightly mellowed at the end by some orange marmalade. Cloudy amber with big white head which adds some creaminess to the body. Citrus aroma; tastes of grapefruit, kiwi, tangerine and pineapple.
