Bottle. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is dry and nicely hopped, and the flavour is fairly deeply hopped with a long lasting bitter finish with some sweetness. Overall a nice IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Almost more like a lager than an IPA, not much on the hops more of a malty beer. Bitterness from the hops is low, not a big fan.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Bottled 04/12/13. An orange coloured headless beer. A fruity aroma. Peachy notes throughout. A nice body. Good hops and good citricity. Works nicely. Not really an IPA but it is a tasty beer. Touch of sweetness.

Bottle from Sainsburys. Moderate hop aroma. Pours light golden. Nice head that didn’t disappear completely. Good carbonation. Quite bitter. The malts come through somewhat though maybe a tad too much sweetness lets it down, as does a lack of hop taste. Could do with being more balanced and bigger in overall flavour and aroma.This is not bad beer. I wanted to like it more.

Bottle drank on hols in St Ives. Bright clear gold beer with a small white head. Palate is dry and crisp. Light pale malt, touch of honey. Nicely integrated orange peel and mellow pine hops. Light dry finish with a touch of lactose - cream. Decent.

330ml bottle from Sainsbury's. Small foamy white head disappears quickly with some lacing. Body is clear golden. Nose is gooseberry, grass and strawberry. Sharp hoppy upfront taste, some nutty malt coming through on the aftertaste. Good full mouthfeel with little carbonation. Pretty good, could do with a bit more good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

330ml bottle at home. Pours clear yellow with a billowy white head, which stays around to the end. Smells of dough and lemon, and a bit of butter. More cereals on the taste, and a little too sweet for me. Expecting hop balance to come, but it didn’t. OK.
