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.

mrkipling (51) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2012
It’s super-hoppy! Very fresh, citrusy and with a touch of bitterness on the aftertaste. Low carbonation. Would be great on hot summer’s day. Not sure that I love it, but I certainly like it a whole lot.

mansquito (4865) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Pizzeria Paradiso, Alexandria cask 12oz ($8): Pours an amber colour with barely any head, but plenty of lacing. Aroma is heavily into the citrus hops. Taste is mostly citrus hops. Malt backbone well done. Balance is generally good. This is more hoppy than one would expect from an IPA from the British Isles, but it is nothing close to hopslaughter. In any case, a good sessionable IPA this is. Very good mouthfeel, but I don’t know if the beer is responsible for it, or if the cask is.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2013 50cl bottle. Pours gold/orange with small bright white head. Decent lacing and fairly lively carbonation. Wonderful tropical fruit in the aroma, grapefruit and passionfruit come through, orange peel, floral notes, slightly sticky sugary sweetness. Taste is another hop explosion, full of zingy tropical notes, citrus tang, light pine resin, lovely smooth biscuity malt backbone to complement the brilliant hops. Lovely medium/full mouthfeel and refreshing bitterness to finish - a great IPA.

lusikka (7650) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2012
500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Soho, Tampere. BBE 09.08.2012.
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of strong exotic fruits, hops and some sweet toffee. Flavour of sweet exotic fruits, honey, grass, bitter citrusy hops and some grapefruity notes. Medium bodied with a lingering bitter and citrusy finish. Honey tends to smoothen especially the bitterness here too much.

laiti (7874) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Soho, BBE 09.08.2012
Aroma is fresh and hoppy with exotic fruits, mango and hints of resin. Flavour is slighly sticky and sweetish with resin, pine needles, some exotic fruits and hints of fruit sugar. Slightly sweet but good IPA anyway.

Cask @ Gallows Bird ⅩⅦ Real Ale Festival
Aroma is light with some fruity hops. Flavour has fruity hops, some woody tones, minerals and some gooseberry bush. Harsh score estimate: 3.6.

From a bottle poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

jfb (5256) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2012
(draught) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. restrained aroma of grass and straciatella, slightly grainy, with hints of yeast and lime. flavour is disappointingly similar, quite yeasty and even slightly buttery, with a minerally light-bitter finish. light-bodied with very soft carbonation.
