viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - DEC 10, 2013
Mild, malty IPA, bit meh. Tastes somewhat underpowered, maybe iím too used to having hoppy/bitter IPAs.

Garrold (1338) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle. Morrisons. Clear, pale amber. Film of sticky, white head. Smells like an amber ale. Red fruit and caramel. Overly sugary. Taste is light sweet. Some woody dryness. Sugary palate. Finishes with an artificial sweetener thing. Not very nice.

This is a pretty unique and delicious beer. The color, head, and aroma will make you wonder what kind of beer it actually is, but the taste is light and frothy, yet full flavored. Definitely recommended.

harrisoni (13745) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle from Morrisons Newark. Now how did I miss this beauty. A Charles Wells Dogfish Head collab? Clear brown amber lasting beige head. Lime on the aroma for some reason. Almost artificial lime. Then some hop and citrus. Itís a bit odd. Itís like a lime flavoured session ipa. Not terrible but not good and distinctly odd. Made me look sideways at it several times.

mike_77 (3129) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2014
Amber to light brown. Malty aroma with just a hint of pineapple citrus. Malty flavour. Somewhat lacking in hops. Light bodied and misses depth.

MichaelAwesome (4100) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2014
Shared with McTapps. Fine one with a clear brown colour, some citrus upfront in the nose combined with crispy taste dominated by hops and some straw. Well brewn beer with some really satisfying moments.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
McTapps (4100) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. The beer pours out in a amber-brown colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and citrus. Taste of hops, light barley, flowers, spruce, thyme and grass. Quaffable and nice. Solid APA, yet nothing that special.

MadIndian (2385) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle gift from SJ. Some notes of caramel malt and floral hop, but it was thin and just bland. Needed the rating, but a bit disappointed.

Scopey (6871) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. It pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is bready, toasted grain, biscuit, earth and tinned fruit. The taste is bitter-sweet, pine, toasty grain, citrus peel, spice, earth and tinned fruit with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not very good. Sweet and earthy. I expected better from DFH, but maybe not Wells...

3.3
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 12/20
Quack-Duck (7920) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2014
bottle from Tesco Honiton. Golden colour, white head and good hoppy nose. Medium-bodied malty base, just about enough to support the aromatic hops that add a citrusy and slightly resiny touch, also some pine.

Sad24 (100) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle from Morrisonís. Slight aroma but not a particularly hoppy ipa, quite dark, cream head.
