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.

Flaska från systembolaget. Tydlig citrussmak som avslutas med humle. Besk eftersmak. God, men inget speciellt på något sätt.

Bottle from Waitrose. Chilled for 20 min. Very pleasant hoppy taste which lingers in the mouth. Certainly recommend

Cask at Matlock, lasting lemony fruity aroma. Pours pale yellowish, slightly cloudy clearing with thin white head. Similar tasting - pleasant - no carbonation. Need to try bottle.

mt_hall (138) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottled. A golden colour with a good-sized foamy white head and lively carbonation. A slightly lager-like aroma, but with dank, resiny hops and a touch of fruit. Nicely dry throughout, with savoury hop flavours and a bitter finish. The alcohol lends balancing warmth and smoothness. A nice change to American-style IPAs.

Very pale straw coloured beer with a short lived white head. Strong citrus aromas and flavours, very hoppy with a long bitter finish. Heavy carbonation, and very thin in the mouth. Easy drinking, but a touch watery I feel... especially for a beer of this strength.

hotstuff (4353) - Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Rated on 5-26-2013. This bottled beer has a large smooth white head with a short retention, hazy pale yellow body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, floral, herbal hops, caramel malt, and fruity. The flavor is lightly bitter, sweet, citrus hops, floral, herbal, and some caramel malt. The mouthfeel is smooth, watery and thin. This is a light-medium bodied beer. A quaffable IPA that is a bit too hoppy tasting for my personal liking. It is worth trying.

Towey1989 (133) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear straw colour with a medium white head. Aroma is hop dominated with pineapple, grapefruit and honey, also pine and grass. Taste is bittersweet with punchy tropical fruits like pineapple, grapefruit and lemon, also pine and resin. Medium bodied and average carbonation. A long, dry hop bitterness in the finish. A great beer from Thornbridge, but better on cask

MarkoNm (984) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 10, 2015
Pours a completly clear and quite light golden color, topped with a substantial white frothy head that stays for some time. Aroma of citrusy hops is easy to pick up. Starts sweet and slightly fruity, immediately followed by a decent hoppy and bittery taste. Mild hoppiness in the aftertaste. All in all a very nice IPA.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2015 Yellow unclear beer with medium carbonation. Taste is citrus, good bitter, fruity. Creamy texture. Good ipa.
