wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Tasted on 8/6/12 from a 500mL bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours a surprisingly light yellow/orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average, sticky, and messy lace. The nose is very light bread malt with a ton of intense floral, citrus, and tropical fruit hops. The flavor is really dominated by the intense hops that are nicely bitter, floral, with tropical fruits and citrus. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nicely bitter and complex hops finish.

AirForceHops (5029) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 7, 2015
500 ml bottle purchased at Julioís 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. Iím 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!

Bottle - clear bright sparkling yellow, heavy carbonation with large white head. Strong citrus - grapefruit aroma. Good on tongue and in mouth. A stronger alcohol tasting IPA with citrus - grapefruit lasting feel. Nice beer.
