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, Waitrose, Ponteland. Pale straw, thin but long lasting white head, LOADS if fresh citrus hops, delicious! Quite simply a crackin’ IPA!

Senka (489) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 29, 2014
50cl bottle / Tap. Decen example of IPA. Hoppy, yet not so sweet, not to malty and not heavy on ABV. Loads of banana and oranges for me. A bit to carbonated. Good when served at cellar temperatures. Tapped was less carbonated, and I liked it better.

Very nice beer, almost a wit. Very pale, great aroma, mild bitterns that struggles with honey... Interesting, maybe too soft for an IPA, but nice.

From the barrel at Victoria Inn Rugby beer festival, clean crisp small bubble head, hoppy notes, slightly hazy golden glow. As expected from Thornbridge a very nice IPA.

See: Light straw colour. One finger frothy white head. Smell: Grapefruit, fresh pine. Taste: Grapefruit continues in the taste. Tangy hop with bitter sweet finish. Pallet: Resinous, fairly long finish. Light carbonation. Very nice IPA, lovely hop aroma and taste without being too over powering. Refreshing and tasty.

Bottled 500ml. -from Vrutak Zagreb. Pale yellow coloured, small creamy white head, slight dusty and mild hoppy nose. Sweetish malty, citric hoppy and mild spicy. Dry bitter finish. Not the best IPA in town, expected better.
