dantheman278 (1361) - - JAN 13, 2013
Keg at Hanging Bat. Slightly hazy golden yellow pour, thin white head. Nice grapefruit, slight pine, barest pineapple, grassy hop nose. Big punchy grapefruit, slightly flinty, just a hint of sweet malts, big pine. Oily mouthfeel, long puckering grapefruit bitterness on the finish. A bit of a hop bomb, but very tasty.

bartlebier (3496) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2016
33cl bottled 02/06/16, Geers. - Juicy classic c-hop oils both freshly doused and boiled down into a citrus peel and wet pine astringency accomodated by a pillowy-smooth light English ale body. - Fresh passionfruit, pineapple and sweet lime aroma smell like they have real fruity substance opposed to the airfreshener category of PoMo IPAs. Tight even taut citric and resinous flavours offer a more advanced take on the international West Coast IPA, coating hop oil juiciness with pith resins. Clean and on point, with a bit of a subtle malt surplus.

Ktwse (4099) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Pours murky Kernel amber (eg dirty peach) with low white head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit, pine, orange and tangerine. Taste is mellow fruit sweet with a light bitter finish. Not as through and through sweet as some of the recent Kernel IPAs have been. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

neongolden (1254) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Nov 2 2015) Pours lightly hazy med orange with moderate white head and lace. Aroma of tangerine, peach, light grapefruit peel, bit of lemon and pine needles as well, some light caramel malt sweetness. Flavour lead by citrusy hops, orange most prominent, with a fair bit of peel/pith to match the fruit. Some peach/mango components, grass and pine needles. A bit of a sweet malt core, caramel present but not too strong. Finish medium bitter with lots of orange peel, pith, grass and light pine, a little astringent. Medium bodied with average, active carbonation. A bit jumbled from the hop mix I thought, but still pretty good balance and juiciness. Good IPA.

Cunningham (7049) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 4, 2015
Hazy deep golden color with a fine white head. Rich ale as usual. Pine, toffee, dried fruits and grapefruit hoppy. Solid stuff. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and a bitterness that quite note balanced the sweetness. Still a nice powerful IPA.
[Bottle from Drygate Bottle Shop in Glasgow, Scotland]
