Sweet fruity hop aroma. Light clear yellow. Sweet grapefruit quickly leading to puckering bitter with some skunk. Almost smooth but a bit syrupy. An alright IPA, but far to sweet up front.

johndoughty (3856) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2006
Golden and poured from the bottle with a small head. Hops are very dominant -they lead to a pleasant dryness. A very good example of this style which was very easy to drink.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 2, 2006
12 oz bottle: clear, dark gold. Quickly diminishing white head. Decent hoppy aromatics with a good deal of hop cones, pine and citrus resin. After thoughts of hops and bitterness: the palate is a bit watery and can’t maintain the hop profile through to the finish, which makes this a pretty unremarkable example.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2005
An orange beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of both hops and caramel - but it also has some notes of barnyard, which makes me wonder if it is a bit off. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel and some Cascade fruit notes, leading to a hoppy bitter end. OK hoppiness, but nothing crazy.

Smells is not too strong. This has a great taste. Crisp, clean bite with hops that sustain. The ending isn’t too bitter but still crisp. Good stuff.

Botteld GBBF 2005: Citrus aroma. Malty, sweet flavour. Bitter finish, quite well-balanced. Dry finish. A pleasant IPA.

GABF 2005: poured yellow with a small head. Hoppy aroma and smooth hop flavor with notes of citrus and pine. Easy drinking. Nice beer.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2005
Bottled at GBBF, ,August 2005 (Day 2). It may not be as big as most US IPAs, but I thought this was a cracking beer. Attractive burnished copper appearance. The aroma has all the classic trademarks of pine, resin and grapefruit. More of the same on the palate but relatively restrained (for a US IPA). Soft malt provides the counterpoint. Smooth, fairly light bodied, but not weedy. Bittersweet finish. Hugely drinkable. I’d certainly have this one again.
