JohnCook101 (394) - - MAY 15, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy copper with a fairly large and slightly off-white head. Aroma is floral, sweet and earthy. Flavours of tropical fruits, nectarine, mango and so on. Quite a bit of malt comes through too. Some earthy, woody elements and a really strong bitter finish. Medium bodied, very slightly oily, moderate carbonation. Lovely.

Pours a bit hazy orange with good head. Full on apricot and watermelon jolly ranchers. Bit of caramel/nutty malt blends in well with more tropical fruit. Slightly resiny bitterness, but clean finish. Yum!

tomekk1978 (801) - Ząbki, 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 (206) - 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.

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.
