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.

06.07.2015 The Brickmakers Viyana, musluk. Pilsnerlerden bile açık sarı ve saydam. Köpük beyaz. Kalıcılığı düşük. Koku narenciye, Tropik meyve ancak çok vurucu değil. Ipa'ya Özgü şerbetçiotu kokuları belirgin. Damakta başta yumuşak, kolay içimli ve meyvemsi ancak ardından yavaş yavaş yükselen ve damağı saran bir şerbetçiotu acılığı artarak uzun süre kalıyor.. Bu birayı özel kılan en önemli etken.. Derinlik olmasa da kalıcılık ve zamanla artması farklı bir özellik vermiş.,

Cask at Spinning Jenny, Manchester Airport. Golden with a creamy white head. Citrus aroma, bitter lemon flavour with an underlying cereal taste. Thick, syrupy mouth feel. Excellent

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

foxo82 (794) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015
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.

CacheManyHose (387) - HONG KONG - JUN 20, 2015
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.

HKdIPA (433) - HONG KONG - JUN 20, 2015
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.
