666ale (61) - Edimburg, SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Pale golden double india pale ale in the american tradition with a big hoppy character, citric and spicy notes. What makes the difference in their beers is the softness of the body.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a snifter. Pours slightly hazy golden with a small white head that fades quickly, leaving a moderate amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of pineapple, citrus, straw and subtle pepper, along with pale malts. The flavour is moderately sweet up front, with notes of honey, biscuity pale malts and tropical fruit. It acquires a medium hoppy bitterness through the middle with citrus, resin and tropical fruit notes coming through. It closes out with a long bitter-sweet finish. On the palate it is medium in full with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a very sweet IPA. The hops are nice, but the malts are almost cloyingly sweet. 2014-07-04

Hazy straw colour with a large white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is mild, zesty and floral. Similar flavours, nectarine, grapefruit, pine, a moderate amount of malt. Quite boozy. Sweet initially with a decent bitter finish. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Very nice!

English in smell, very pale color. Thick foam. Aroma not too intense, but pleasant. Tastes great. Bit sweet but in aftertaste light bitter. Excellent!

Sjohnh (198) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Instead of the usual murky pond water appearance shared by even some of the best imperial IPAs, this is a pale yellow with a frothy white head. Nice mix of fruits in there including mango and a bit of gooseberry, slightly creamy, and a bitterness that creeps in rather than punches you in the face. Another winner for Thornbridge, though for a really great one (like Stone Ruination) I’d prefer a bigger and darker fruit hit.

vanelst (153) - AUSTRIA - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of tropical fruit, caramel, citrus and grass. Taste is not very edgy, but pleasant nevertheless. Malty sweetness, a bunch of hops and grapefruit. Sweet beginning and moderate bitterness towards the end. Ideal on a hot day.
