Slowbeer ontap (20-Dec-2013) Lovely biggish fresh herbal hop aroma. Cloudy light amber yellow colour, decent head and sheet lacing. Big hop spice pepper aniseed flavour. Big bitter herbal spice pepper finish and tangy stark pepper hop aftertaste.

Pours a yellowy copper colour with a frothy white head. Smell is quite sweet, mango. Taste is of berries with a bitter finish.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
(Bottle): Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, lemon, orange, caramel, malt and biscuit. Flavour is a delicious fruit bomb of the aforementioned fruit notes. Really light and crisp, decent bitterness and dangerously drinkable for a 7.4% beer. Very impressed.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Floral aroma with a pungent tang. Sweet taste up front, but mostly bitter citrus and pine. A bit acidic though. This has a great bitter finish - really dry and feels like you’re raking around in the embers of a bonfire. NIce slow drink. Shame it looks like wee.

Fizzy urine colour ( I’m sorry but it is). Strong odour of mango and pineapple. Tight palate, fizzy but doesn’t blow up your cheeks when you swill. Same fruity notes in the taste but obviously with a bitter hoppy kick. Refreshing and very drinkable.

Andy_ (1044) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 30, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2014 Straw yellow clear beer with white head. Wait, did I order a witbier instead of an Imperial IPA? Aroma is tropcally fruity and sweet, really fresh and nice. Taste is fruity fresh and little bitter. Medium full palate with a medium strong dry resinous bitterness on the long finish. Surprisingly refreshing IPA of this strength. No alcohol, no overly sweet caramel or too much hops, well balanced. Well done.

guzgorog (705) - FRANCE - NOV 27, 2013
Bière de couleur jaune, translucide, belle pétillance et joli col. Se dégage des odeurs d’agrumes et de de fleur. Belle amertume pour des saveurs de citron et de mandarine, légèrement liquoreuse. Très bonne bière !

foxo82 (843) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2013
Keg at DaDa, Sheffield. Very pale with a whispy head. Smells hoppy, fresh citrus and delicious. Nice balance of sweet citrus and bitter hops in the taste.
