tomekk1978 (272) - POLAND - APR 12, 2014
Barwa: złota / jasno bursztynowa, lekko zmętniona. Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, średnio obfita i dość szybko opadająca. Wysycenie średnie. Aromat: głównie chmielowy (cytrusy, owoce tropikalne, żywica) oraz alkoholowy. Słód bardzo przykryty. Smak: słodowy, pełny, umiarkowanie słodki. Występuje chmielowa kontra, ale goryczka poniżej średniej. Na końcu wyraźna nuta alkoholowa. Mimo tego mnie pasuje. Na takie India Pale Ale czekałem, ale nie spodziewałem się, że uwarzą je Anglicy. To pierwsze piwo z tego browaru, jakie miałem okazję próbować. Barwa jest w stylu, choć piana mogłaby być większa. Aromat jest świetny, intensywny, a smak pełny i konkretny - choć nie przytłaczający. Ogólnie wstrzela się w mój gust, bowiem idzie w stronę imperiala. Zobaczymy co będzie przy degustacji tej mocniejszej wersji. Warto też wspomnieć o oprawie graficznej, która jest ciekawa i zmienia się w zależności od piwa. Mnie przekonuje. Warto zainteresować się tym browarem.

Tselloufc88 (10) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
330ml Bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Pour is a hazy orange, pretty soupy looking. Small white head. Bits of sediment resting in the bottom of the glass. Aroma is citrus, peach. Taste is firstly citrus, bitter. Citrus end with a zingy peppery aftertaste. Hides the 7% ABV well. Pretty good stuff from a brewery who does hoppy beers very well. Would like to drink it on tap.

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle. Hazy gold with a white foam. Aromas are pineapple with mango and woody pine. Leafy with hints of melon and candy sugar. Bready yeast with peppery nettle. Flavours are sweet tropical fruit with bready yeast and green pine. Citrus rind with a herbal, peppery finish. Good stuff.

lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2014
330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy orange copper colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of pineapple, juicy lychee and some floral notes. Flavour of juicy fruity hops, lychee, biscuit, sweet orange and some lemon. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. A very juicy and bitter finish. High drinkability. Enjoyable.

Garrold (732) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy, lumpy, orangey amber. Patchy, sticky, lasting, white head. Yer genuine fruit salad sweet aroma. Light, fresh, mintiness. Very light spiciness. Taste is brown sugar sweet to start. There’s a light, fudgy, maltiness running through. The bitterness comes by way of a light grapefruit hoppiness that balances everything beautifully. Palate is fresh and lively, with a slip of oiliness. Finish is zesty, fresh bitterness. A delight.

Arczir (70) - POLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Pours almost clear amber orange with off-white decent head. Nice, fruity aroma, mostly pineapple, mango and peach, later with some sprucy and piney notes. Good taste, with pleasant bitterness and just enough background. Medium body and carbonation, long palate with some alcohol warmth. Good stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2014 Many thanks to Weird Beard for sending me TWO replacement bottles to make up for the one below! This has medium carbonation with a fresh pine fruitiness and crisp bitterness. Some tropical elements emerging more than the orange before but it’s a good hop balance and great bitter finish. Thanks guys.

330ml bottle from Beermoth. Flat as a pancake :( Looks like Cheddar Valley cider in the glass, orange and still, with a sweet aroma and peach melba yoghurt taste. Hm.. next.

Psytron (1151) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Smell of citrus and spruce. Hazy amber colour, small white head. Aroma of spruce, citrus, a faint of pepper in finish. Lively and plentiful carbon. Starts out very bitter and transitions into sweetness. Nice attitude.
