16-12-2015 Delft (drankgigant) Verassende kleur. Heel erg licht gouden kleur. Smaakt en ruikt wel precies zoals hij eruit ziet. Enorm frisse zoete smaak (neigt meeste naar ananas). Veel hop en bittere nasmaak die lang blijft hangen. Goede IPA maar niet heel speciaal.

rajendra82 (1030) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Pale golden color was a shade lighter than expected, and the pour was filled with suspended yeast sediment stirred up during transport. The smell was unusual for the style, as I did not expect the strong lemon aroma. The sour smell did not translate into a sour taste however. The flavor was full of floral hops followed appropriately by a strong flavor of honey. The finish had a spicy quality to it. This was not exactly American in a flavor profile, nor was it British. It tasted closest to a cross between an APA and a BSPA to me. The body was medium thick, making this quite easy to drink. Quite expensive for what you get, but worth trying once at least.

AirForceHops (5783) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 7, 2015
500 ml bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. No date on the bottle. Aroma is herbal hops, honey sweetness and a trace of pine.

The flavor shows a light citrus grapefruit character upfront with some mild pale malt / honey sweetness in the center. The texture has some mild dry citrus with traces of pine. The sweetness reminds you it is of English decent but still has a light hop punch. Medium in body with a smoother carbonation level. I’m impressed because this maybe the best English brew I have sampled in a very long while. I bet fresh on draft this is very nice. Well worth a try!

Pours light gold with no head. Aroma of passion fruit and grass. Taste of pine and tropical fruit. No lacing. Stronger than I like on the alcohol front. Pleasant enough.
