beerfest5 (1060) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 31, 2014
When poured into the tulip glass, this is the most appetizing IPA’s I’ve ever had. Cloudy yellow, effervescent, modest white head, wonderful lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, citrus, some grass in there. Taste is similar with a little bread to level off the tremendous hops. Finish is nice and dry. Beautiful, really one of the best IPA’s.

Had it on ask / tap at Owen & Engine in Chicago. Pours a clear amber hue with a light fizzy head and and uneven lacing. It has a light IPA smell hith hints of sour and a taste that is bold and deliciously beautiful.

Taboada (116) - Compostela (Galiza), - JAN 24, 2014
Tasted on 500 mml Bottle 24/01/2014. The colour is hazy yellow without life. A lot of citrus Hops in mouth. The aroma is citrus and so alcoholic and the bitter is high.

Buongiorgio00 (576) - - JAN 14, 2014
Luppolatura ariosa e tropicale, che riempie la bocca e soddisfa ogni esigenza, con note di pompelmo e buccia di limone. Amaro leggero ma persistente, che nel finale scocca la sua freccia di cupido. Ed č subito amore.

Draft at Memphis. Pours a hazy gold with bubbly white head and soapy lace. Nose of grapefruit, citrus, grain. Medium body, medium bitterness. Decent hoppy flavor for an IPA from England

allmyvinyl (2166) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 10, 2014
500ml bottle at home. Hazy yellow pour, thin white head. Big mango nose, tropical fruit, grapefruit, and honey. Light biscuit. Taste is fresh and luscious. Oily texture, clean finish, nice.
