bacchanalia (146) - milton, Cambridgeshire, - JUN 17, 2011
Just pours perfectly, creamy white persistent head. Nose is lemon fresh, its the smell air fesheners aspire to. Palate is quite extrodinary really, has this oily viscous quality that really coats the tongue (in a good way). Flavour is wonderfully balanced between sweet citrus & sweet biscuit, great beer.

AdiBeer (1895) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Aroma: tropical fruits, mango, peaches, some citrus fruits. Appearance: pale, hazy, gold, small, frothy, white beer. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweets intensify, very juicy tropical fruits, some grain malts, turns lightly dry in the finish, very soft carbonation. Overall: very nice IPA, yet I was expecting a bit more, solid Kernel-quality, but is it their best IPA, not for me. Bottle from Independent Spirit, Bath.

GlasgowTAD (373) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy dark yellow with a shortlived head which becomes a frothy layer quickly. Aroma is earthy, grassy, sprucey, citrusy and slightly floral - so fecken dank I may add it could alley-oop whilst doing a backflip. Taste is characteristically the same as the aroma - earthy, grassy, slightly orange citrussy and not very bitter. Very rich in both taste and aroma, once it coats your mouth the juice just stays there. Full bodied and very easy to drink.

jzi (44) - POLAND - MAY 8, 2015
Wygląd: Drobno i średnio ziarnista piana. Biała, kremowa. Dość niska i powoli opada. Zostawia duży lacing. Barwa piwa - ciemna miedź, bardzo zmętnione, błotniste. Duży drożdżowy osad. Aromat: sosna, cytrusy, orzeszki. Zdecydowanie dominują cytrusy. Smak: cytrusowo-leśnie. Mocna goryczka, w pierwszej chwili tak intensywna że aż cofa język. Po kilku łykach robi się bardzo przyjemna. Lekka słodowość, słodki finisz. Dość treściwe, ale bardzo pijalne. Super.

Bottle thanks to Leighton. Pours a cloudy yellow with small off white head. The aroma is fruity hop and citra. Medium mouth, tropical fruit, citrus, pine, light bitter finish, very impressive.

Fashawn (373) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 1, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2015 Birra che mi ha commosso. L’aspetto è bello, non meraviglioso ma arancio torbido con schiuma bianca croccante, vagamente evanescente e saponina. Ma ho usato un bicchiere inadatto, immagino che nel bicchiere adatto sarebbe perdurata. In compenso, l’aroma è vastissimo. Papaya, ribes, mango, lime e coriandolo, aghifoglie, resina, fiori bianca. Buona frizzantezza, corpo pieno. Sapore di caramello dolce all’imbocco, anans, coriandolo e pepe, ribes, frutta tropicale. Finale secco che riporta l’odore di ginepro, delle bacche e dei pini, oltre un sapore resinoso pieno. Quando si scalda si sente anche la scorza d’arancia, commuovendo. Birra unica, best IPA mai bevuta.
