Yellow golden, with a fair, slightly creamy head. Noble hop aroma. Great lingering bitterness with just the right level of carbonation. Good beer.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2007
Crystal clear copper with a creamy, lacy off-white head. Aroma is about as english as you can get , so earthy, a touch coppery and floral, as well as a solid sweetish malt. So simple but perfectly simple. Medium body, balanced so well between the sweetish base malt and earthy bitterness. Flavours of that coppery earthy hop, wort, flowers and an ever so slight oaky cardboard oxidation. It was always going to be a bit of a task to get a 4.1% bitter across the world in pristine condition. Overall though, its just excellent.

Ok I suppose, but the cask version is for superior, it is more complex and flavoursome. There are better bottled ales available, but this is worth a bash.

An ok bottled beer with some hops and biscuit malt in the aroma. Earthy flavours with a dry finish. Nothing like as good as the cask version IMHO.

[BOTTLED: 28/03/07] Was not as pleased with the tast out of a bottle as I was from the cask. Still a very pleasant ale but would recommend it is tried from the cask for full experiance. Refresing citrus taste, light and gentle.

Gorbalev (2980) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2007
Bottle shared with Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, Jerc, and GregClow, my bottle. Really nice dusty hop aroma - floral. Cloudy orange, small white head. Lovely taste: honey, floral, rather bitter, lemon, nice malt base. A great strong UK IPA - very fresh tasting out of the bottle that had traveled and been in storage for a few months. Very good.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc & tupalev - courtesy of tupalev. Golden-amber with a moderate sized white head. Great aroma of hops, honey and clover. Flavour is quite robust for a 4.1% beer - lots of sweet malt with a grassy hop finish. Nice stuff, Id love to try the cask version sometime.
