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.

500ml bottle. Pours clear gold, lively in the glass, lasting fizzy white head. Huge oily resinous hops on the nose. Hard lemon zest, orange zest and grapefruit. So aromatic you can smell it from across the room. Fruit (more lemon, orange, pineapple and lime) in the body, full of flavour. Also a twist of cinnamon spice. Medium bodied, excellent hoppy, fruit/spice finish.

Lys farge, som en pilsner. Lavt skum. Masse sitrus og malt. Smaken bærer også preg av disse ingrediensene. I tillegg kommer det noe humle og furu. Medium konsistens. Fin bitterhet i munnen.

Tropisk doft. Frisk smak med påtaglig kolsyra. Nästan lagerlik smak, humlen är välbalanserad, de tropiska smakerna antyds bara och spelar andrafiolen. Men beskan tar sedan ett påtagligt grepp om på tungan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Absolutely in my top five beers available. Of the ’citrus’ age of beers this is up there as one of the best. This is a fresh drink, with good strength and lovely aftertaste. Maybe a little more malt to drag it to the top of the game!

Very tasty IPA especially considering that it is English. A lot of citrus flavors blending nicely against a creamy ground.

Moebbels (288) - FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Pours a very mildly hazy straw yellow color with a mininal white head. Nose has loads of fresh hoppy notes of citrus fruits, hay and resin. Taste is smooth, mildly bitter woth a nicely lingering bitter finish. Carbonation is quite low and the mouthfeel is fairly rich and oily. Overall a very nice and refreshing IPA, quitelight with alow maltiness. A perfect summer beer for the hop loving beer drinker!

klippx (33) - Solna, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2014
Rather clear, light fresh IPA. Kind of like a neutral lager meets hoppy ale. Thin but rich in foam, great with a good IPA in 500ml bottle n

Amazing example of english pale ale, extremely soft. From draft is special. Fruity citric punch, dangerous drinkable as the style wants.

Keg in the Firehouse, Sowerby Bridge. Pours golden with a white head. A really good hoppy beer with pine and grapefruit.

@ Röhällavägen. Bottle (500 ml) from Systembolaget (28:-). Hoppy and fruity, citrus and peach, grapefruit, medium sweet, medium body and an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and fruity. Refreshing.
