Bottle, bought @Alesbymail. Pours light hazy orange with a large, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma has fresh citrus, apricot, bergamot, light peach. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good malty base sweetness, a touch of caramel, apricot, apple, citrus oil. Quite nice, elegant bitter finish. Good ipa.

Davros (2746) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2014
Pours orange/amber with a large head. Nose shows grapefruit, earthy hops, grassy notes, green apple and lovely biscuity malt. Clean hoppy flavours, big pine, grapefruit and grass hops with some faint malt underneath. Finishes with a very aggressive and sharp bitterness. Carbonation seems a bit full on.

Niksko (593) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a light hazy golden with some frothy white head. Nose is pineapple, fresh citrus, slight caramel. Flavor is classic american hops, loads of grapefruit, some pine, lime zest. Lighter side of medium body, fairly low carbonation for the style. Doesn’t taste like 7% at all, which makes it very dangerous. Very tasty.

dsmith4 (47) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2014
330ml bottle A dry tasting IPA but somewhat disappointed by the lack of bitterness that should have been coming through from the hops for an American style IPA. Disappointed given the hype around this beer.

prawlie (1499) - ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2014
Half pint from a keg at Wandsworth Summer Beer Festival. Hazy light orange with a good foamy head. Very dry, grapfruit notes. In fact very, very dry. Still it does have something to it. Zesty grapefruit aroma. Just a bit overhopped for me.
