RichardW (1515) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle Rehills Ncl. Powerful aroma of tangerine, floral notes and tropical fruit. Quite a prickly initial tang but a big creaminess comes in behind it. Strong finish, with plenty of sharpness and a good bitter smack.

gunnar (5297) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle from Beermerchants.com. Pours hazy golden with a moderate sized creamy white head. Aroma of citrus and flowers. Taste is crisp and fresh citrus, lingering till the end. Medium body and smooth mouthfeel. Strong bitter and dry end, mint and citrus, a good one, again.

Czik (22) - Siedlce, POLAND - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a nice head, a hazy, deep orange colour and a nice, hoppy, bit flowery aroma. Very bitter and very good, the hoppiness is very rich, spicy and minty. One of the best I’ve had.

tommann (2723) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
330ml bottle at 7.5%. Pours a hazy dull orange with a medium head. Aroma is subtle, juicy mango and blackcurrant. Taste has bitter bread to start. Mango and lime finish. No smack in the face but this is a good drinker.

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2012
[330ml bottle, Sourced Deli, St Pancras] Opaque orange beer, thin white head – reduces to a lacing very quickly. Slightly perfumed aroma – pine, some tangerine and orange. Tastes are cedarwood and a hint of orange. It’s bitter – but there’s a smoothness present, too. Despite that orange, there’s not much citrus compared to Evin’s other IPA’s – more sweet tropical fruits instead [30052012]

jackl (4608) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle @ the brewery. Deep amber color with a small white head. The nose is pineapple spiked cream cheese, raspberry and clotted cream. The taste is funky cheese and pineapple, some raspberry and strawberry, light tobacco and grassy hops. Overall, excellent and quite flavorful.

Beersiveknown (3000) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle at home from Bitter Virtue Dark hazy amber with sizable white head. Gooseberries and grapefruit on the nose, soft bodied. Grapes and gooseberry predominant in body, little bitterness.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy on the tropical fruit notes. Lots of mango. Taste is along the same lines, very hoppy and fruity with nice bitterness, but not overpowering. Oily body with soft carbonation. Overall, extremely balanced but nothing mind blowing.
