Very pale yellow beer with a thick, foamy head. Light, bitter citrus scent. Itís a touch too fizzy on the tongue for me and it almost over-powers the flavour. The flavour is hoppy with a sharp lemony edge but thereís not a lot else to it. The finish is bitter and dry and does linger somewhat which improves the beer.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle at Jakeís Place, Edinburgh. It pours hazy golden with a thick with a thick white head. The nose is light citrus... grapefruit, lime, light urine and sherbet. The taste is crisp, smooth citrus, grapefruit, orange rind, light bitterness, straw and grass with a dry finish. Rather refreshing and easy drinking.

Stuartyboy (1459) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2013
On cask at Larbert beer festival flavours of lemon, pine, grass and grapefruit easy drinking with very refreshing finish however as others have said it is somewhat one dimensional and uninventive decent but nothing exciting

AshtonMcCobb (5372) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2013
On cask @ Thomsonís Bar. Pours golden with a decent head. This is really the single hop IPA by numbers. Itís the usual mixture of pine and grapefruit on the nose and more grapefruit on the taste. As expected, itís light to medium bodied and refreshing throughout. Itís nothing that hasnít been done many times before and it is somewhat one-dimensional. However, that one dimension is very pleasant.

Leighton (18700) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2011
Cask somewhere in London (The Market Porter, I think). Pretty standard beer. Has some pleasant, woody bitterness. Light sweetness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Not bad.
