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.

british style far more malt prevalent than i prefer. i didn’t get much from the hops besides bitterness...the floral, citrus, tropical aspect of many american ipas was not present here. biscuit malt, some sweetish caramel, and a smooth body. pretty good within the british ipa style, but it’s just not for me."

Senka (554) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 29, 2014
50cl bottle / Tap. Decen example of IPA. Hoppy, yet not so sweet, not to malty and not heavy on ABV. Loads of banana and oranges for me. A bit to carbonated. Good when served at cellar temperatures. Tapped was less carbonated, and I liked it better.

Very nice beer, almost a wit. Very pale, great aroma, mild bitterns that struggles with honey... Interesting, maybe too soft for an IPA, but nice.

From the barrel at Victoria Inn Rugby beer festival, clean crisp small bubble head, hoppy notes, slightly hazy golden glow. As expected from Thornbridge a very nice IPA.

See: Light straw colour. One finger frothy white head. Smell: Grapefruit, fresh pine. Taste: Grapefruit continues in the taste. Tangy hop with bitter sweet finish. Pallet: Resinous, fairly long finish. Light carbonation. Very nice IPA, lovely hop aroma and taste without being too over powering. Refreshing and tasty.
