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.

Fred82 (2128) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2012
500ml bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Clear pale amber medium head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Resinous hops with citrusy notes. Nice malt. Piny and coniferous. Some honey.
Taste : Nice malty profile with honey on the finish. Piny and citrusy hops with some resinous notes. Finish fairly bitter and a bit resinous.
Overall : Quite enjoyable and drinkable but not as elegant as Kipling or Wild Swan. Still very well made and it was probably better

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - MAY 22, 2012
Meh, really doesn’t do it for me. Pours a straw yellow with a thin white sticky head. The aroma is old cupboard, straw, and a touch of floral hops. The flavour, a rough kind of bitter, straw, soap, maybe I got an off batch, really don’t understand the 3.56 rating. Just not very good in my opinion.

Bottle. Pours light gold with a white head. Big citrus hop flavour and aroma. Restrained bitterness and well balanced. Soft mouthfeel. Good.

C2H5OH (64) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2012
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a thick, white, head. Nose is orange, peach, lemon peel, floral hops, and a hint of woodiness. Mouth feel is medium, with a pronounced creaminess and high carbonation. Taste-wise, we have biscuity malt, lemonade, resinous hops, grapefruit, and some grassy notes. Finishes long and slightly dry, leaving bitter hops, lemon and some oak. Not particularly aggressive with the hoppiness. A fresh, easy-drinking IPA that’s perfect for the summer.

Radek Kliber (6885) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle 500? ml
Aroma solid, classic clean blend of sugars and hops. Approachable, refreshing. Hint of honey, mint and citrus. 8-
Appearance hazed golden beer with medium white top. Some lace.3+
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied. Quiet dry up front. Medium light carbonation. Mellow mid end. Very refreshing. Frontal boldness is eased up by laid back finish. Excellent beer.

Ipa con aspecto de lager bastante carbonatada. Típica Ipa inglesa pero con notas maltosas y buena dosis de lúpulo. Final al seco y amargo. Recomendable

davidmg (49) - SPAIN - MAY 15, 2012
color dorado y espuma blanca y persistente. bastante carbonatada en un primer monento el aspecto puede recordar a una pils. aroma predominante los lupulos, tanto carbonico acentua el aroma y sabor a lupulo. el sabor sigue una linea lupolizada de principio a fin escondiendo otros matices con un final seco y citrico

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2012
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours bright pale golden in colour, with nice big frothy white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is English earthy hops, taste is weighted to hops, but this is bitter resin hops. Some biscuity malt. Pretty good, hope to get more beers from Thornbridge!

humlelala (1190) - DENMARK - MAY 12, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 (Sample from 50 cl bottle at CBF) Pours a clear golden with little white head and lace. Aroma is resiny hoppy. Oily texture with a full body, medium carbonation and a slightly sweet, malty finish. Taste is mildly bitter ith sweetness. Okay but I prefer hops that are more tropical fruit and less leafy.
