Very hazy orange - amber beer. Tidy off white head. Dry palate, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Earthy orange with a hint of mango. Bitterish aged lemon. Finishes dry with a brief not of sweet tropical fruits. Nice beer if a tad dry - probably need to let the other bottles clear a bit.

fiulijn (17458) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012

Cloudy golden color; creamy head, generous; the bottle is slowly gushing after pouring the first glass, and there are particles raising with the foam (yeast and hop leaves?). Very nice aroma of fruity hops, pungent, with tropical fruits, passion fruit, some sweat. Correct body strength; slick toffee flavor, a bit polluted by the yeast; good contribution of fruity hops, smooth blend, but the final is a bit harsh because of the said yeast.
The second glass is just disgusting muddy hop soup.
It could be very good, but there has been a problem with the bottling.

Leighton (16268) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours the usual, cloudy orange with a rather sturdy, white foam. Big and beautiful aroma, lots of ripe citrus, wet wood and pine. Medium to big sweet flavor, some woody malts, juicy citrus and other ripe fruits, some toast, resinous pine. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky, sweet finish, lightly warming, with oily hops, bread, pine tar, ripe citrus with rind, papaya and wood. There is a robust, lasting bitterness in the aftertaste that allows all the aforementioned qualities to linger on. This is so damn drinkable I could neck it in one gulp. A real effort to not do so. Superb.

harrisoni (16047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle from my good friends at Bottle Shop Canterbury. Cloudy dullish brown copper colour. Lasting thin cream coloured head. Lovely citrus fliral aroma. Some biscuit some floral hop. Maltier than other ipas have been from the same brewery. I quite like the biscuit to be honest. Satsuma and mandarin aroma. More malt and hop balance. Some toffee. Rather tasty and well balanced. Yes alarmingly drinkable
