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

Bloody fantastic. Stronger than my first girlfriend. Too strong to drink in the quantities I would like. Lovely hoppy IPA with tons of taste.

Bottle from Daddy-o. Pale, clear with minimal head. Deceptively drinkable. Soft citrus but with a dry bitter finish that builds. Great balance of flavours here.

Part of Matt's 31st birthday haul. Clear light gold-green with creamy white head and wet spotty lacing. Smells of strong citrus fruit, honey, woody floral hop, light almost smoky/white pepper spice. Tastes of light lemon malt, grassy mineral hop, bitter resin finish. Medium-to-light bodied. Aroma is nice and sweet without being unbalanced or cloying; taste is a little thin but not bad.

Bottle from Bottle Shop at home. Clear sunny yellow pour with fine head and lots of champagne like vertical streams of bubbles. Aroma is fresh citrus hops. Taste is similar - citrus hoppiness, some resin on the finish. Not much lasting flavor. Crisp, nice, surprisingly full-flavored for an English IPA. Good.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 What more appropriate day to review this than on the beer’s 10th anniversary!
Bottle from Craft Õllepood in Tallinn (€ 3.60); BB 15.04.2016. Pours a surprisingly clear bright, almost greenish yellow with a huge top, off-white in colour, retaining and lacing quite nicely. On the nose it’s ripe, citrusy and resiny with some herbal spiciness - yarrow? nettle? spruce? There’s also a malty and sliiiightly caramelly base, and it’s warmer I get a pungent musky note too. Tastes fresh and clean, lots of tropical fruitiness and sweet tangerines; some caramel there... and lots of peaches and mango, but not as juicy fullness, but rather as lemonady crispiness. Beautiful sweet/bitter balance, although the bitterness is more enhanced. The body is medium with a tiny minus, but by no means watery, whereas the carbonation is crisp, giving it an excellent quenching quality (obviously helped by the rather low ABV). The citrusy (there’s a slight grapefruit seed effect) finish is coated in a mellow honey-like sweetness. This is very pleasant, a beautiful benchmark beer!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 Disappointing. Quite plain aroma and palate. Mildly citric and the hoppy finish lacks character.
