gad905 (20) - - AUG 19, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2014 5.3% version, bottled 22/07/14. Bottle from BottleDog, London, drank at home.Delicious aroma of citrus, resin, pine, and some light hay maltiness. Burnished gold, clear, with minimal quickly-dissipating off-white head. Medium sweet then plenty of lasting bitterness. Medium body, creamy, soft carb/almost flat (like well-conditioned cask ale), long bitter finish.Overall, what would have been a really solid effort for a single hop APA is spoiled somewhat by being flat. I guess it?s about expectations; had I ordered it off a handpull it would?ve been different.

Garrold (1221) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Hazy, pale gold. Thin, but tight and lasting, sticky, white head. Golden syrup maltiness. Mint and grass. Taste is light bitter. Soft carbonation. Light bitter finish. A bit unkernellike.

Habanero (2561) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon and pine. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. An excellent IPA.

AdiBeer (1026) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Aroma: bread and light caramel malts. Appearance: light gold, no head. Taste: medium bitter, some sweetness. Palate: getting even more bitter in the long finish. Overall: nice APA, maybe a bit on the bitter side. Pint at the Lazy Fox, Fulham. (NB: this clearly stated 5.6% on the clip, and did not mention any Citra, just Chinook)

Torrefacto (533) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2013
Color cobrizo pálido, espuma blanca. Aromas lupulados y cítricos. En boca es ligera y fresca con una entrada suave y un final cítrico yunido a un amargor lupulado muy equilibrado. Un buen trago.

daje (2233) - NORWAY - NOV 18, 2013
Bottle. Orange body, lasting white head. Aroma of orange and pine, caramel. Taste is pretty hoppy, pine and fruit, high bitterness, softened by a caramel toffee sweetness. I love chinook, though I don’t always like it as a single hop in a hoppy beer, but considering that this is a pretty decent brew.

Retro review Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; hazy amber pour with white head, grassy and citrus aroma, citric hop forward taste with some mandarin, quite a silky resinous mouthfeel.
