A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Absolutely in my top five beers available. Of the ’citrus’ age of beers this is up there as one of the best. This is a fresh drink, with good strength and lovely aftertaste. Maybe a little more malt to drag it to the top of the game!

Very tasty IPA especially considering that it is English. A lot of citrus flavors blending nicely against a creamy ground.

Moebbels (303) - FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a very mildly hazy straw yellow color with a mininal white head. Nose has loads of fresh hoppy notes of citrus fruits, hay and resin. Taste is smooth, mildly bitter woth a nicely lingering bitter finish. Carbonation is quite low and the mouthfeel is fairly rich and oily. Overall a very nice and refreshing IPA, quitelight with alow maltiness. A perfect summer beer for the hop loving beer drinker!

Rather clear, light fresh IPA. Kind of like a neutral lager meets hoppy ale. Thin but rich in foam, great with a good IPA in 500ml bottle n

Amazing example of english pale ale, extremely soft. From draft is special. Fruity citric punch, dangerous drinkable as the style wants.

Keg in the Firehouse, Sowerby Bridge. Pours golden with a white head. A really good hoppy beer with pine and grapefruit.

@ Röhällavägen. Bottle (500 ml) from Systembolaget (28:-). Hoppy and fruity, citrus and peach, grapefruit, medium sweet, medium body and an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and fruity. Refreshing.

Very pale. Quite dry. Hops come out as citrus and pine. Some lavender. There’s a bit of soapy and musty aroma. Some peach fruitiness. Overall quite nice.

Swaroga (1305) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 27, 2014
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : Piwo jest przejrzyste i ma jasny złocisty kolor. Piana jest średniej wielkości o kolorze białym. NOS : aromat tarty cytrynowej, miodu akacjowego, jałowca, białka, skórki cytryny, grejpfruta, jaśminu. USTA : piwo jest całkiem przyzwoicie gazowane o kremowej konsystencji. Piwo jest umiarkowanie słodkie i umiarkowanie gorzkie. Natomiast pełne w smaku i wielowymiarowe. Nuty słodowe przypominają puszystą tarte i miód. Delikatnie cierpkie i herbaciane o nutach cytrusowych. Gorzkość jest podobna do pestki cytrusowej ale nie aż tak intensywna. Dobrze wkomponowane i stłumiona słodyczą, która w posmaku powraca przypominając mi o posmaku jaki ma sok z trawy jęczmiennej. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest ciekawe i satysfakcjonujące. Nie jest to bomba chmielowa ani nie idzie w nuty karmelowe jak niektóre IPy. Jest lekka i subtelna. Nie jest to najbardziej ciekawa IPA ale, jako piwowar domowy, jestem zauroczony gładkością tego piwa, jasnym i przejrzystym kolorem. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 7/10 styl : 0

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours light golden colour, light but lasting head. Classic Thornbridge - hoppy, fruity, an excellent IPA.
