Towey1989 (825) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A slightly hazy amber colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, resin, grapefruit, orange and some peach. Taste of caramel, resin, spicy orange, grapefruit, some peach, slight brown sugar and floral hops in the background. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A bittersweet, grapefruit bitterness in the finish with some caramel sweetness. I agree with most people that it’s a little sweet for an IPA, more like a strong amber ale. Nice flavours though.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle from Ship in a Bottle, West Kirby. Amber pour crowned with a lingering mid range off-white head. Nose had some promising grapefruit and grassy hops. Similar, sweetish flavour with more citrus/tropical fruits and floral hoppage. Solid lingering bitterness in the finish. Decent offering, would love to try fresh and on keg.

NosirIwont (2161) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. 6.9%. Best before 31.05.15. 10 cl. sample. Pours a slightly hazy yellow/light amber, with a diminishing off-white head. Hoppy aroma, with a hint of citrus. A bit fat. Hint of malt as it warms. Sweet hop flavour, with a bitter hop finish. Overall a clean example of the style, but pretty middle of the line. 01.05.15.
