wedgie9 (2071) - 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.

Una IPA anglo-americana, con perfil ingles de Malta y levadura -mermelada de naranja, plum cake de pasas- con sensación de bombón de licor en una boca densa, golosa y redonda

ippopotamo36 (350) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 18, 2014
0,50 bottle got in Serbia, courtesy of markoijelena. Thank you. Pours pale golden-yellow, hazy with a medium white foamy head which leaves lacing and bubbling spots on the surface. Nose: lime, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pungent tartness. Just a hint of caramel which does not disturb. Mouth: solid bitterness all around the palate starting from the first sip, a lovely hint of sweet jam, tons of lemon and citrus.

Flaska från craftbeer.se. Doftar ananas och passionsfrukt. Ohh, len och rar i munnen. Medelbeska med stor maltkropp. Smarrig.

mtu71 (115) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Tap. Medium long lasting white head, big layered lace. Clear, slightly cloudy pale orange. Grape fruit and other citrus on aroma with camembert. Taste has grape fruit, strong pine apple, tight hops and bitterness. Very dry palate with medium carbons. Nice balance, complex, tasty and refreshing. Developes big variety of aroma and taste notes in warming glass. Very interesting.

The beer pours a slightly hazed honey gold colour with a generous rocky snow white head. Aroma is mild grapefruit, orange, and grass. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is weak grapefruit, pea pods, citrus peel, and grass. My least favourite Thornbridge beer so far.

BobyFischer (104) - FRANCE - NOV 25, 2014
Jaune pâle, à peine trouble.Mousse moyenne, se dissipant moyennement et laissant un petit col blanc.Nez superbe : très frais et fruité : ananas, fruit de la passion (passiflore). En bouche goûts et palette moins étonnants, fraîcheur et amertume, finale très sèche.Corps assez fluide et léger, alcool très discret, le malt aussi se cache autant que possible.Une impériale ? Une bonne IPA anglaise en tout cas, fraîche et un peu forte c’est vrai.Amère, à mer.

Tap at Craft bier fest, Vienna. Pale golden color with medium head. Biscuit malt, citrus hops in aroma. Strong dry citrus hoppy taste with solid malty backbone. Long hoppy bitter finish. Good.
