UPDATED: OCT 31, 2014 Bottle at home. Almost clear amber color, small white head disappears quickly. Aroma is nicely hopped, some malts also. Malty body, fruity hops, dry end. Quite nice ipa.

- Poured from a 330ml bottle - Colour: Amber - Head: thin wispy head - Aroma: deliciously hoppy, not too strong, just right! - Taste & Texture: Very tasty, and refreshing..but that might be because I drank it after a long hard week!! - Verdict: would drink again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

YigSvartka (86) - Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 10, 2014
Minuscule head size with a dark brown translucent hue. Utterly fantastic aroma consisting of hops, cinnamon, malt and prominent caramel. Delectable taste as well beginning with creamy smooth malt and caramel and finishing with a mildly bitter grassy hop. Good stuff.

330ml can - a hoppy taste with no blend of flavours. Flat taste with no nose.

VertBaconStrips (2093) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Smells English straight up. Weak tropical addition. Very tasty and quick drinking. Light spice, full flavour, savory slow citrus, purely enjoyable - I’m about 1L short of enough of this.

jamestulloch (1495) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Can from Oddbins. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head that quickly fades. Low carbonation. No lacing. Aroma of toffee, grapefruit and biscuit. Flavour of caramel, blood orange and watery malt. Thin body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Very malty for an IPA. Needs more hops.

Koelschtrinker (10946) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Grasig hopfiger Antrunk mit leicht süßer Malzigkeit. Dunkel getreidig im Mittelteil, hier insgesamt deutlich würziger und leicht röstig. Harmonisch, vollmundig, der Hopfen bleibt konstant aber rückt nach und nach in den Hintergrund. Süß hopfiger, etwas herber Abgang. 11/11/10/11/12/11

MadRobin (2027) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Poured from 330 ml bottle. Clear, dark amber with a khaki head and good lacing Aroma of caramel malt, pine, orange, earthy hops and a modicum of tropical fruit. Taste of pine, caramel, minerals, orange and herbal hops. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. A bitter, but unexciting IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mile (3087) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Light amber, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and some tropical fruitiness with some grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and light bread with light tropical fruitiness, light - some grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, some caramel faint bread, light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - light citrus hoppyness. Caramel sweetness IPA with notes of bread. Way too sweet and too much caramel for me.
