teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. It pours a cloudy peachy colour with a small white head. Nose is toffee and tropical fruits perfecting balance between the two. Fair bit of grapefruit at the back end which works well. Loads of toffee in the taste with heavy apricot. Very creamy mouth feel with light sweetness and not a great deal of bitterness but what is there is quite zesty. A fair bit resinous and sticky. Good as always.

tiong (3818) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 09.05.13, BBE 09.09.13 - Pours dark orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of crisp malts, grassy hops, exotic fruits and some spicy notes. Taste is smooth, hoppy, spicy and grassy with hints of exotic fruits and berries. Finish is hoppy, malty and crisp with grassy bitterness and hints of berries. Okay, but I’m not the biggest fan of the hops used here.

Flavour of grapefruit, kiwi, anise, caramel malts, mint, grass and mandarin orange. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a fruity, lingering bitter, grapefruity finish. Nice fruity IPA.
