chriso (7475) - London, Greater London, - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle, thanks to yespr on 30 April 2013. Golden amber colour. Intense floral and grassy hop aroma. Lasting off-white head. Good firm bitterness on the palate to go with the aromatic elements. Not too boozy or sticky but does have a little more residual sweetness than I like.

UXO (536) - CANADA - MAR 4, 2015
Pours cloudy pale gold with a fat finger of dense ivory head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is pithy citrus, pine, peaches, mango, caramel malt. (8/10) Taste is moderate sweet, strong bitter, mild peppery spice. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly spicy finish. (4/5) Lots of flavour and a very well-behaved ABV. And yeah, its a 100 IBU hop bomb, but its not overwhelming, because its fairly well-supported by the caramel malt. I like it. (16/20)

Mesjasz (65) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Hazy golden color, big creamy white head. Aroma is hops with citrus, tropical fruits, pine and grass with caramel note. Taste is heavy bitter with fresh white grapefruit, pomelo, orange zest and resin flavors. Little malt sweetness and hay also appear. Aftertaste is long bitterness with juicy grapefruit note. Beer have full body, thick texture and medium carbonation. For this ABV alcohol is impalpable and beer has high drinkable factor. Great Double IPA.

Leighton (12668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Draft at LCBF 2013 - London. Pours cloudy yellow with a light, white foam head. Moderate dried citrus, some bready pale malts, orange, tangerine, some hay. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish, pretty sweet. Lingering ripe tangerine. Full on but pretty well balanced.

tomekk1978 (642) - Ząbki, POLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Barwa i piana: barwa jasno złota, zamglona. Piana lekko zabarwiona (żłto -biała), średnio i drobno pęcherzykowa, obfita i dosyć trwała. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat: dominuje chmiel amerykański w postaci cytrusw, choć i nuty zielone, łodygowe są wyraźnie wyczuwalne. W tle złożowa, lekko karmelowa i słodka słodowość oraz nuta alkoholowa. Smak: wyraźna słodowa słodycz, szybko skontrowana chmielem (tutaj więcej owocw). Bardziej wytrawny, słodowy finisz, ze zdecydowanym alkoholem. Goryczka i odczucie w ustach: dosyć wysoka, owocowo- łodygowa goryczka, wzmacniana przez alkohol, jednak mająca rwnowagę w słodzie. Jest ona lekko drażniąca i długa, ale nie zalegająca. Krągła do tęgiej pełnia i umiarkowane wysycenie. Nieco oleista konsystencja. Szorstkie i trochę pikantne odczucie w ustach oraz wyraźnie alkoholowa, rozgrzewając przełyk końcwka. Imperialne IPA z To l-a, bardzo dobrze przyjęte na ratebeer. Wizualnie nie ma się do czego przyczepić. Natomiast w aromacie i smaku występuje moim zdaniem zbyt dużo nut zielonych/ łodygowych, pochodzących z chmielu. Sprawiają one wrażenie, że piwo nie jest świeże, ożywcze, a raczej ciężkie. W prawdzie w smaku mamy więcej owocw (niż w aromacie), jednak nie jest to nadal ten poziom, na kry liczyłem. Dobre (może nawet bardzo) piwo, bez wad, ale nie wzorowe, zwłaszcza biorąc pod uwagę cenę.

lmastr (23) - Norma, ITALY - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle. Appears hazy blonde/amber. Aroma of tropical fruit, tastes like citrus that soon evolves into a strong (but not too strong) bitter hoppiness. The perfect balance achieved by To l makes this beer almost perfect. Bravo.
