Scopey (7437) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2013
Keg at York Tap. It pours hazy golden with a thick white head. The nose is earth, straw, orange, grapefruit, sherbet, urine and spice. The taste is zesty citrus (tangerine & grapefruit), floral, straw, dough, moderate bitterness and a touch of alcohol with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent enough IPA, but not Thornbridge’s best offering.

Kosmokrator (517) - ITALY - APR 21, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 Pallido color biondo lievemente torbido, insolito per una IPA, con un cappello mediamente spesso di soffice schiuma bianca. Profumata e floreale, sentori di luppolo, gelsomino e limone; gusto mediamente amaro, non prepotente, note agrumate, erbacee e luppolate con una punta di dolce nel finale. Di corpo medio-lieve ed effervescenza vivace, è leggera e beverina senza essere acquosa ma da una birra del genere mi aspettavo una maggiore complessità.

flying_pig (1004) - SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2013
500ml bottle from Peckhams (£3.75):
Medium, hop filled aroma with a lot of pine and some subdued tropical fruit notes coming through. The smell isn’t a weak one by any means but I was expecting stronger from a double IPA. There is some citrus notes shooting through and an earthy floral scent with a touch of sourness.
Clear golden colour with a good sized, foamy white head on top that had good retention and only shows a slight reduction in size.
Bitter pine hops and floral notes straight off the bat and this is coupled with a fruity bitterness, mainly grapefruit and a few tropical fruit flavours as well. There is some citrus too.
Strong & smooth beer with light medium carbonation and a strong citrus and alcohol laced kick. The beer is quite dry at the finish and very bitter.

An average double IPA, perhaps a little light although it smelt quite nice. Bitterness levels were what let it down, I felt it was a little to strong on the front. Still, not a bad effort from Thornbridge.

rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2013
Pours a remarkably light, straw like yellow for a potent beer. Lively carbonation. Floral hops with some zesty citrus and a modicum of herb like notes. Worryingly easy drinking at 7.7%, but retains a long complex finish which moved into spicy notes at the close. Another great beer from Thornbridge!

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 13, 2013
On tap at Proletariat. Pours a Hazed gold with a thin white head. Hoppy citrus and spicy malt notes. Medium bodied, malty, toast, empties out a bit. Soft bitterness on the finish.

toffeeslot (118) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2013
Pours a straw yellow. Nice foam. Aroma of pine, mint, grass, citrus. Good taste, not too dry, but with a good balance of hops/malts. Easy to drink.

Pale golden color, medium white head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit, malt and pine. Taste is similar, dry sweet initially with strong bitter and hoppy finish. Medium body and carbonation. Nice and enjoyable IPA.

cintasenese (12) - ITALY - APR 4, 2013
Double ipa in perfetto stile inglese:pulita e asciutta, ma comunque profumata e ben luppolata. Gradazione superiore ai 7 gradi, ma molto ben bilanciata, per niente estrema. Una delle migliori di Thornbridge.
