McTapps (4463) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2014
IPA pours out of the bottle in a light cloudy deep golden colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and citrus. Taste of fresh hops, citrus, herbs, berries and mandarins. There is a certain lightness in the character of the beer which I really like. Very easy to drink, highly enjoyable.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Blumen. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig herb, leicht nach Kräutern.

Bottle. Pours pale golden, minimal white head. Minor malty nose. Taste is very malty, not much fruit or citrus. Long bitter finish, medium body. Average carbonation.

gegwilson (1381) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle from the deli in Shrewsbury. Has lagery looks with a pale golden body and white head. Sweet at first but with lots of hops flavour kicking in to leave a more bitter finish. It’s fruity with citrus, caramel, pine and some floral notes too. Very nice and drinkable.

Scottishchris (224) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 21, 2014
Had drank loads of this in the pats, never rated. Pours clear light straw with small foamy head. Good lacing. Malt on the nose, not much on the hops. Medium body, good mouth feel. Loads of maltiness, a bit lagery rather than IPA but I like it. If you like Ceasar Augustus you might like to try this.

danlo (1295) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
330ml bottle. Yellowy-orange amber colour, foam white head and aroma is citrus, peach. Taste of malt caramel with earthy pine bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dryish bitter finish. OK.

kiwianer (3362) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 2, 2014
The head is medium. It smells fruity, peach, melon, hoppy, honey, great. The taste is more boring, flat-malty, hoppy, watery, bit bitter. Aroma top, taste flop.

RichardGretton (4277) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2013
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.

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.
