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.

Marduk (6166) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 29, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 500ml bottle. Clear pale yellow color. Small head forms only to diminish into tiny head very quickly. Aromatic hops, floral, perfumey aroma. Malty, hoppy, grapefruit in flavor. Nice and juicy. As it warms up this beer gets more interesting.8/3/7/4/14=3,6
Cask (Angleterre). Cloudy amber color. Medium size, thick white head, stays. Fruity, malty, citrus, yeast in aroma. Sweet, malty, fruity, light citrus in taste. FCUKIN HELL, MOFO! What the hell is this on my tongue? Angels masturbating? Fantasticly mellow, hyper-super-ultra drinkability! Light tobaccoish hops in aftertaste. Fantastic brew! More more more!!!

thirstyrabbit (1720) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden body (the lightest looking IPA I have had) with a medium to small head. Aroma has sweet and fruity hoppiness. Medium sweet hoppy taste with not too much malt. Equally fruity and dry finish. A nice and mellow session IPA - everything is balanced, there is no hop or sugar overkill.

danlo (2489) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2012
500ml bottle from the Crafty Pint, Darlington market. Clear golden yellow amber colour with a foamy white head and grapefruit citrus hop aroma. Taste is bitter with malt, floral fruity grapefruit citrus notes, some residual sweetness, and through to a lingering dry bitter finish. Medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel, very drinkable.

suurjuust (2809) - ESTONIA - DEC 23, 2012
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 (2177) - 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 it’s 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 (1035) - 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.
