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.

flying_pig (1435) - SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle (500ml from Waitrose, Glasgow):
Strong with pine hops coming through along with some citrus fruits, a lot spice spice and some floral hops along with plenty of tropical fruit notes. This one was a pleasant surprise on the nose with some pineapple, grapefruit and even some lychee making up the rest of the nose.
Light amber with orange tinges and a very big, two fingers tall head that is part foamy, part bubbly looking and stays at about the same height for a few sips before reducing slightly in size.
Hop filled on the taste buds with a good tropical fruit backing and plenty of pine and floral hop flavours coming through. There is a little bit of a bitter grapefruit taste but nothing too severe and there is a nice orange and citric fruit taste following on from it. As you would expect from something with so many hops coming through, it is also quite a bitter beer.
Moderate carbonation and a medium mouthfeel, this one is quite a hop filled beer and quite dry in the finish. Lots of citrus in the mix and quite fruity as well.

Nice, very much like an American style IPA which wasn’t at all what I was expecting. This one is a beer I had heard a lot about prior to drinking it and my only regret is that I put off trying it for so long.

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

thirstyrabbit (1751) - 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.
