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.

jmgreenuk (6512) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 2, 2012
Cask at Taps Beer Bar Kuala Lumpur. Very light amber pour. Almost no froth with a little lacing. The aroma is not inviting but the taste is very special. Very smoothly hopped with a very definite hint of honey. Quite a lingering bitterness too! A really lovely beer but not quite a session beer due to the higher alcohol content. Very drinkable, Very Thornbridge! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gramoit (379) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2012
Top class drop this! Pours Yellow (lighter colour than expected) with a finger head that recedes quickly into a thin lacing. Mostly citrus hops on the nose. Taste is brilliant. very hoppy with some lingering bitterness, but not too bitter, and a little sweetness of honey that I thought was a great touch. I wish I bought more than one of these!

bluevegie (3070) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2012
Clear golden body with lasting head. Nose is sweet and fruity with a bit of grass. Taste is smooth, well carbonated, good length and although nothing really stood out for me in this beer it was easily enjoyable and drinkable.

visionthing (4068) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2012
50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours clear golden with a nice off-white head. Lovely hoppy and fruit smell from the moment it is poured in the glass. Hoppy aroma with citrus, tropical fruits, pine, malt, caramel and a hint of spices. Sweet and fruity with a citric and bitter finish. Very well balanced. The caramelly sweetness fades into a grapefruity bitterness. Tasty and refreshing IPA with more flavour than expected. Aftertaste of grapefruit with a lasting bitterness. Very nice IPA!
