Very nice ipa! Lovely cloudy orange pour w/ a white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is full of hops. The taste is relatively clean w/ just an underlying bitterness which makes it remarkably easy to drink at 8+%. Not exactly a flavor explosion but tasty enough to make this one fine beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Seems to be a lot of rates if they only brewed 780 Imperial Gallons of this stuff. Anyway a bottle found it’s way to Shropshire and four of us shared it on 24th June 2015 at a Shrewsbury Bottle Exchange meeting.
Poured clear golden colour with a staying white crown. The nose was somehow perfumed with a citrusy orange twist and slightly piny. Semi-sweet in the mouth with again an orange, citrusy and piny feel: not as bitter as I expected. Decent though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized amber colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated semi-hazy orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and musty. The vinous crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet citrus dough and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Poured from the bomber, almost orange with a white collar. Taste is mellow considering the strength, with a gritty mouth. I really like the story and history that is behind this, I looked up as much as I could find and now I might even buy that Steele guy’s book. Beer and history, what a concept, and a really good beer!

Flaska. Orange öl med ett gulvitt skum. Söt doft med marmelad, grape och persika. Mycket sötma i smaken, kola och frukt. Men sen kommer humligheten med grapefrukt och tallbarr. Påminner nästan mer om ett amerikanskt barleywine
