COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

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.

Bottle @home from Melgers in Haarlem. Nice citric hops with bitter aftertaste. Some honey around as well. Thin head.

olden yellow bubbly white head. Nose is tons of citric hoppy aromas, peach, lemon, grapefruit, pine, some caramel and malt. Taste begins with malty-caramel notes, and the builds into a medium intense floral-tropical fruit finish with slightly sweet malty tones. Not an overly aggressive hop bomb (which I love) but a balanced hop harmony.

Imaena (2157) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - DEC 17, 2012
Draught. I really enjoyed this. Well balanced on the hops - not an American style hop bomb. Fresh mowed grass, dry maltiness, and clean fast finish.

jbrewsbeer (17) - Guelph, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Bought this from the LCBO - had it earlier in the summer and was quite happy with it, but had a hard time finding more. I finally did! But unfortunately, this bottle I found is past itís best before date. From the get go I know that all hop character will be muted. Moving forward. The aroma I get is tangerine. Appearance is bright yellow, crystal clear, lovely golden IPA. Lots of bubbles leading to a white puffy head. I also have chunks of yeast cake recirculated via the bubbles. Nice white lacing. Taste is definitely British malts and yeast character - which is quick at the beginning. Then on to tangerine flavours and a weird bitter finish (possibly due to the age of this particular bottle). The beer is quite dry and medium-thin bodied. Lively on the tongue in a way that enhances the beer. Overall a great beer which I only wish was a bit fresher.

Tessic (1027) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
This IPA poured a cloudy, light yellow colour with a nice, big, foamy, bright white head. Little lacing. to the nose there are scents of corn, perfume, ginger ale, soda water, citrus hops and hay. First sip was smooth with flavours of lemon citrus, grass and hay. finish is lightly bitter with floral/citrus hop flavour lingering.

rubbishystuff (2215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 Lovely stuff. Citrus, floral hops, not to strong but not too mild neither. Cloudy pale orange color. Very fruity flavored, some orange, maybe mango. Interesting. Serving: Bottle

toffeeslot (119) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2012
Probably served too cold, but still lots of aroma of mango, passion fruit plus all the other NZ hop attributes. Pours nice and clear with a huge creamy head. Taste is very smooth, lots of tropical flavours and a nice bitterness. In fact, I think the fact that itís straight out of the fridge which makes is so creamy and refreshing. Very very nice!

Cracking curry and a very pleasant IPA to go with it. I have very kind family and friends and I have a warm glow. Although that could be because of the amount of rum Iíve consumed. I have lots of rum. In fact, I have more bottles of rum than I do beer I think. More rum than a barber.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 5, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours clear gold, lively in the glass, lasting fizzy white head. Huge oily resinous hops on the nose. Hard lemon zest, orange zest and grapefruit. So aromatic you can smell it from across the room. Fruit (more lemon, orange, pineapple and lime) in the body, full of flavour. Also a twist of cinnamon spice. Medium bodied, excellent hoppy, fruit/spice finish.

Bibendum (117) - ITALY - DEC 4, 2012
Una delle migliori ipa mai bevute. Assolutamente piacevole e di facile beva, esalta le note amare caratteristiche di luppolo senza perÚ rinunciare ad un sapore estremamente bilanciato. Da provare
