DanielBrown (3700) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Outrageously good. Beautifully hoppy, with incredible balance. Sweetness, hoppy depth. Firm, yet fizzy. Real good.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 22, 2014
Hazy tan, thin head. Passion fruit, starfruit, grapefruit, gooseberry, quite a bit of pale malt and a touch of alcohol. Soft body, mandarins at Christmas, grapefruit meringue, touch of citric acid...this is quite smooth for the style. You know itís sugary but you donít really think of it as a sugary beer.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry, drank 24/10/13 packing for Cali. Clear to foggy bronze with a fine off white collar speckling with lace. Big brazen Jelly Tot and Tropical Starburst aroma with blackcurrant, sweat, guava..almost garlic. Thatís pushing a 9. Huge and peppery with aromatic pine, mushy tropical fruits, chalky flowers, pot pourri, gentle warm. Corn and honey? Not a trace. Burps of sorrel and root beer; dragonfuit, galangal. Top draw IPA. And massively drinkable- pity it was the wifeís and I only got the dregs.

AdiBeer (875) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Aroma: vanilla, citrus lychee, syrup. Appearance: hazy pale gold, small white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets, notes of alcohol, grass, floral notes, light bitters. Overall: amazing IIPA, aroma and palate are both incredibly complex. Bottle at Euston Tap, London.

The Half Moon, Windlesham. Colin and Sueís Wedding. Keg. Light haze on this gold beer, good white head. The palate has a soft background but itís peppered with minerally carbonation. Good malt backbone, with a nice sweetness that I suspect is part honey. Good tropical fruit hops, mango with a a trace of pineapple and lesser citrus. Finishes pretty light with moderate bitterness. This really is dangerously drinkable DIPA. I had 2.5 pints and the only effort I had to make was to slow down, I could have easily tucked another couple away but I knew I would be paying the bill the next day and my missus was there to bolster my resolve! The beer just doesnít get chewy or too bitter when drinking in volume. Lovely!

jerd16 (183) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 330ml Bottle. Aroma is peach and honey. Pours a deep golden colour with a white fleeting head. Taste is punchy but not boozy. I think the lime-honey adds a herbal sweetness that balances any undue bitterness. Has lovely balance between malt and hop-forward citrus. Leaves a medicinal sweet-honey taste on palate. Really lively beer and a joy to drink. Would drink more if it wasnít so high on the ABV.

johninmelb (1123) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2013
Fresh, lemonadey nose with kiwi and honey notes. Pours a hazy pale amber with a bit of sediment. Taste is excellent - rich, hoppy and fat with tropical notes with a long piney finish. A touch of alcohol astringency in there but not too much. Very nice indeed.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
On tap at Colinís Wedding Party - somewhere outside London. This is a damn fine beer marked by its exceptional balance. Itís loaded up with orange, lemon and urine. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Resinous on the finish, moderately sweet with more bright citrus fruits, pee. You really canít detect that this beer is as strong as it is. Great stuff. Super drinkable.
