Huge pine and orange hop note with spruce and mango. Pours a hazy amber red, gorgeous dry palate, leafy and grassy with a late soft sweet finish and some alcoholic warmth deep down. Truly excellent IPA.

On draft at leeds international beer fest. Great colour and it smashes the pallette. Simply great beer...enough said.

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.

Hazy golden beer with a frothy head. Aroma is citrus but sour whereas the flavour has a distinct sweet tang to temper the sourness. The hops could easily have been overpowering but they’ve been well balanced given this a flavour which is surprisingly rounded after the first sniff. Too strong for a session beer of course which is a shame because I think flavour-wise it’d be perfect for me!

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras. Hazy dark amber colour lasting off white head. Lovely hop aroma. It’s a good even excellent American pale ale. Good solid malt underpins the good Pacific northwest hops. Fresh and hell really good. Surprise of the day.

Garrold (1332) - 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.

Keg Friends Of Ham Leeds 01/05/13. A ginger coloured beer with a white head and lace. Rather hoppy and rather fruity with sweetness which doesn’t annoy. Lots of berry like flavour. Malts are not intrusive but give a good body. Candy sugar suggestions. Really good and the keg temperature was far from being too cold.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Dark copper with a cream head, quite clear. There is a great tropical aroma. The flavour is mango, grass, pine and melon. There is a bitterness at the back of the tongue and a nice slight sweetness. Great beer.

Hermod (3167) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2013
33cl bottle, batch # 0005. Bottled on Mar-13. Hazy dark orange, thick, white head. Aroma has sweet tropical fruits, light sweetness, grass and malt. The taste then; well quite similar hoppy fruitiness, some yeast and grass, just the right amount of sweetness and a bitter, malty and fruity finish. Tasted delicious after 30min with the lawn mower.

Spicy, lemonadey nose with fresh orange juice and dripping mango notes. Hazy copper with a quickly dying head when poured. Flavour is excellent - well balanced with a lot of citrus and lemonadey notes, some more spice and some spruce, with a gentle underpinning malty-honey sweetness. Textured finish with flavours of composting orange and grapefruit rinds and a pleasing sharpness at the end inviting another swig. Very nice indeed. One tiny thing - this brewer tends towards just a touch of over-carbing. If they sort that they’ll be joining the leaders of the craft beer revolution in the UK for sure.
