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 frĺn systembolaget. Tydlig citrussmak som avslutas med humle. Besk eftersmak. God, men inget speciellt pĺ nĺgot sätt.

beeebon (391) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours clear pale golden colour, much like a Pilsner with foamy bubbly white head which soon settles. Aroma is grassy, grapefruit, citrus zest and a bit of mango. Taste is initially mild smooth sweet then noticably clean bitter which is quite long lasting. Quite bubbly and slightly slick, Overall a nice IPA

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2016 Served in shaker @ 5-6 deg celsius from 500 ml bottle BBE 07.04.17 Pours pale with a moderate head of foam, which dissipates rather rapidly. The aroma is earthy and besides makes me think of pine resin, hay, grass and bitter hops. The taste is bitter, somewhat citrusy and metallic, without any appreciable sweetness and hardly any balance. The bitterness, which appears to be the dominant taste characteristic, lingers on uncomfortably for a whole while as an aftertaste. Depending on Thornbridge's idea of shelf life, the beer might not be fresh and might have lost some character on that account, but I am nevertheless not at all impressed.

On tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Clear, yellow/golden pour with a big, white head. Aroma has citrus, hops, grains, old, fermented citrus fruits, light pale malts. Taste is dry, bitter, tiny sweetness. Average carbonation and a rather oily body.

Medium dry lasting bitter refreshing ; light spicy ; sweet note. Light body, thin texture, average carbonation, bitter refreshing fruity lasting finish. Overall, a really good fruity bitter light spicy ale ; nice label.

I_LUV_BEER (117) - - JUN 9, 2016
Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours clear gold with a white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is citrus hops, earth, grass and weird damp cellar (???) notes. Taste is mostly bitter lemon and orange peel, very long lingering sharp bitter aftertaste. Very dry medium body with minimal carbonation. Unbalanced brew with too much bitterness, so not very enjoyable.

seritomi (356) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 4, 2016
Tiszta és eléggé halványsárga nem kiemelkedő küllemmel. Illata fás, száraz gyógynövényes enyhe maláta harmóniával. Csípős közepesen erős keserűség száraz vékony testtel. Utóíze zöld füves a hideg komlózástól ezt pici hibának könyvelem. Végén tartós keserűség társul hamus kenyeres komponensekkel. Nem rossz de semmi kiemelkedő.

Hyvin kaunis ja maistuva. Hieman hikinen tuoksu ja tasapaksu loppua kohti. Sessio-olut paremmasta päästä.

inbirraveritas (1460) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 4, 2016
Bottled, 500 ml. Clear yellow golden one with a medium sized broad pored white head on it, which leaves a thin film behind. Citrussy nose and aroma escorted by bread, honey, florals, resin... slick mouthfeel. Bittersweet, somewhat warming, lingering grapefruity finish. Nice.
