This big, bold, bitter IPA not only shows off a super hop kick but a depth of orange, apricot and ropical fruit flavours that are both refreshing and complex. Crammed full of four aromatic hop varieties, a fantastically tasty beer.

Golden to orange colour with a big, foamy, white head (this dissipates quite quickly, but leaves a decent enough bit of froth. Aroma is hoppy but a bit bready or yeasty. Flavour is a nice balance of hops and malt; not too sweet and with a bit of citrus. Great texture, oily with a bit of fizz. Good beer.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours clear amber with a thick yellow-white head. The nose is manure, toast, grass, zesty citrus, resin and light vomit. The taste is soft orange, tangerine, apricot, pine, resinous, bitter, metallic aspect and grass with a long, bitter-dry finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. I am not convinced by the smell, but it tastes pretty good.

My 1100th beer. Pours golden with some head. Nose of grapefruit and lemon barley water. Taste is more of the lemon barley water and some herbs on the finish. Palate medium bodied and textured with a tangy clean finish. Overall a well made IPA.

Bottle from The Cave. Very cloudy amber brown colour, reasonable head. Big resin hop aroma. Fruity apricot pine hop flavour. Quite light and smooth for an IPA. Refreshing.

[cask at SRAF’12] Slightly hazy golden amber, bubble white head. Lovely aroma of lemon and lime citrus, sweet toffee. Not sure if this is dry-hopped or not, but it smells and tastes like it. Great hop presence – citrus and grass on the taste, with some slightly resinous notes. Long dry finish. Impressive [28062012]
