Bottle@The Flying Horse, Gatwick Airport (08/09/2015) - pours a fuzzy amber colour with white head. Medium sweet tropical and citrus fruity and malty aroma and taste, some caramel, grapefruit and peach, pine needles, hoppy bitter finish, not bad.

BlackHaddock (4918) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
330ml can: BBD 26th Feb 16, poured into a Chimay chalice at home on 19th Jun 15. Really liked it. Amber to copper body with a full white crown from a vigorous pour. Hops front and centre, malts giving a heavy backbone: fruity, bitter and tasty. Not as bitter or hop forward as a lot of the US West Coast big hitters but a very good beer in a similar style.

bastarda (197) - Freiburg, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2015
promising nose of tangerine, tangerine peel, pineapple and lime, when warming also some pine aromas, some light caramel and even some oaky hints; therefore the fizzy, foamy consistency is a bit of a let-down, and "an intense hit of hops American IPA" is not this very subtle, almost faint reappearance of the nosing aromas in taste; on the other hand, all of them are really there and the finish ist quite pleasant, with a fine grapefruity bitterness and a light sourish touch.

beeebon (303) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Can from Morrisons, pours a light copper colour with small off white head which doesn’t linger long. Aroma: Slight pine and resin, grapefruit and citrus and strong malt and brown sugar. Taste is nicely balanced sweet and bitter, good malt presence. Not too watery mouth feel. Overall a decent IPA, I will buy again!

mtu71 (284) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Tap. Small white foamy long-lasting head. Filigran lace. Clear deep copper. Shy but pleasant aroma. Moderate hopping, malty and bitter. Silky palate. More ale than ipa but a good ale.
