Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Keg at the Earl of Essex, 08/04/14. Very lightly hazed golden orange witha big old eggshell white head that retains well. Nose is candied fruit peel, grapefruit, dank hops, citric pithdom, bitter orange, pine. Taste comprises caramel malt, sweet pangs, mango, orange pith, grapefruit. Medium + body, soft carbonation, grassy hop bitter load at the curtain call. Solid enough DIPA, quite an easy drinker considering the ABV.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Så där ja ska det smaka från England.. Högst ofattbart att engelsmännen kan Göta en så bra Dipa. Fyllig och sticker inte ut i smaken. Peter fortfarande på banan men snart fyllnar han till.

Överraskade god arom! Fruktig något återhållen, gräsig med toner av gödsel. Smaken fint balanserad med god smak lite söt. God med en mycket fin beska. En lång o god eftersmak.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle @home. Great fruity nose, with a hint of tinned peaches. Caramel on the palate with a bitter long finish. How was it? Bloody wonderful was how it was.

Nocturne (630) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Hazy orange with a fluffy off-white head. Good lace too. Caramel, berries and bitter hoppiness was my overall impression. Seemed to lack the tropical and citrus hop character that I often enjoy with this style, but clearly a well put together example.

Deep orange-dark amber color, small white head. Grapefruity, rhubarb aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity, stingy hoppy, grapefruity - not so fresh taste.

Garrold (732) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Bottle from Dram Shop, Sheffield. Cloudy, dark orange. Minimal, white head. Aroma is big everything. Grapefruit, tropical fruit, caramel. Taste is bitter, with some burnt caramel, harsh sweetness. Lightly carbonated. Oily, almost greasy palate. Big, grapefruit dry bitterness.

Habanero (2134) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with a medium sized, lacing off-white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, peach and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. Nice indeed.
