RichardGretton (4222) - 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

Idiosynkrasie (3593) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, foamy, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma has notes of citrus, tangerine, biscuit undertones. Taste is citrusy, minimally sweet pale malty with a touch of honey, biscuit, tangerine, floral hop note in the finish; flat carbonation. Fresh, citrusy, neither overly bitter hoppy nor complex IPA - juicy.

McTapps (3574) - 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.

kiwianer (3317) - 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.

330ml bottle from the Good Spirits Co. Orange peach colour, reasonable head. Resin vanilla aroma. Hoppy citrus fruit flavour. Bitter aftertaste. A good beer which is an IPA with a Scottish twist.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2012
On cask at The Stockbridge Tap. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of passion fruit, caramel, a little grapefruit and alcohol. Similar flavours with lots of passion fruit again. Nicely bitter with mild carbonation, light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel.

Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some tropical - floral fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness.

allmyvinyl (2802) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 29, 2013
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.
