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.

Bottle; amber, clear, thin smooth white head; lovely hoppy aroma, all tropical fruits; well carbonated; soft tropical fruit and citrus flavour - orange and soft grapefruit in particular; lots of hops in the dry, moderately bitter finish; incredibly well balanced despite the massive hop presence - it manages to be both delicate and powerful at the same time; really very good indeed.

dmctaster (5) - Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2015 does not count
(16.9oz bottle) Smell is citrus and spices. Gold in color and white head. Good carbonation as bubbles are continuous. Taste is bready., citrusy, wheat, and bitter. No filtration gives a stong flavor.

mrjez (113) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2015
500ml bottle from CBB. L: surprisingly pale gold, completely clear and bubbly, with a short-lived fizzy head. S: wow. My fears from the look are unwarranted, a big tropical nose grounded by an earthy graininess. Pineapple, passion, mango. T: similar to the nose but a bit more grapefruit, a nice malt backup, and a rising bitterness across the palate. F: superb mouthfeel, has a fizz and dryness not unlike a pils, but the hops make it bigger. Immensely drinkable. O: it has some American IPA features but works through subtler twists than just hitting you with bitterness. It was gone way too fast.

Bij Thornbridge café van tap en cask vergeleken. Hoppiger en bitterder van de normale tap. Lekker zacht en ook hoppig van de cask. Beiden lekker.

Bosskie (620) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2015
Golden beer, clear with nice bubbling and a white head. Smell is crisp hoppiness, peels, resin, spring in the forest. Taste is salty bitter. Good carbonation with a smooth but astringent finish.

Lichtgeel bier. Geur van hop, citrus en wat honing. De smaak is bitter, hoppig en fruitig (citrus). Een lekkere bittere nasmaak, die redelijk blijft hangen en wat zoetig wordt naar het eind toe. Lekker!
