UPDATED: JAN 18, 2013 Bottiglia 500ml
Nel bicchiere è ambrata, schiuma fine e dalla buona persistenza. Aroma fresco e con leggeri sentori di aghi di pino e pompelmo con ottimo bilanciamento di amaro di resina che regala un buon equilibrio. Corposità media, si avvicina maggiormente allo stile American. Ottima bevuta.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought in Munich at Kaufhof Altstadt. This is my fourth bottle. Like it and went for more. Not cheap but being not many IPA choices in Munich, they can charge what they want. Poured in a pint glass. Color is pale hazy gold, similar to a hefeweizen but a bit less hazy. White foam head that disappears rather quickly. Ring stays througout however. Smells citrusy, grapefruit or tangerine may be. On taste, it is carbonated right, sufficient but not suffocating bittering hops with an aftertaste that lingers. Disagree with other reviews. Not tipically British. Tastes more like an American IPA. Would have never guessed British...
It’s low alcohol content (for an IPA), makes it a great drinking beer. Overall, a great beer (or is it that I miss IPAs... here in Munich?)

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sweet floral hops and biscuity malt. Carbonation, malt and aromatic hops hit the tongue first, then rolls into a lingering bitterness. A little light on the palate but the flavour and nose are a great combination and make up for it. A classic of its style.

Pours a clear gold with two fingers of foamy white head, excellent retention, and heavy lacing. Nose is citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Taste starts sweet and citrusy, giving way to a bitter finish. Mouth feel is watery, with medium body and sustained carbonation.
Pleasantly light and fruity, with nicely balanced sharp hop bitterness and mild malt. The ABV may be a little high to consider this a session ale, but it’s not far off that. Quite drinkable.
