JohnRMurdoch (4366) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 21, 2012
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.

mile (3811) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and light tropical fruitiness, some grapefruit - piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some tropical - floral fruitiness, light grapefruit hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and some floral fruitiness, light piney - citrus hoppyness. Fruity IPA - could use more bitterness (and less caramel).

RexTalionis (3505) - FINLAND - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle 33 cl, BBE 03/2014. Pours clear golden in color with a thin white head. Grassy bitter hops, sharp piney notes and forrest in aroma. Sneezing effect here in this. Bitter grassy hops in taste, some sweet maltyness as well. Buttery and notes of hay also. A bit like a hybrid between an IPA and Dortmunder Helles. Grassy, sweet buttery finish. Okay, perhaps more grassy though, but with that slight burnt grainy feeling though.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden worth decent white head. Big pungent hoppy aroma, lots of grapefruit, citrus, mango (nelson?). Taste has lots of fruity hop flavours, orange, mango, grapefruit, passion fruit, some caramel and biscuit. Decent body with a mildly bitter finish. I like this

jamestulloch (3428) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2012
Aroma: Lovely grapefruit and peach notes with a hint of pepper.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a medium white head. Light carbonation. Good lacing.

Taste: Big grapefruit flavour. Slightly earthy. Nice and refreshing with a soft bitter finish.

Palate: Medium body with a slick oily texture. Average carbonation.

Overall: Tastes lighter than its 5.5% ABV. Big grapefruit flavours.

kiwianer (3428) - 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.

gegwilson (3204) - 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.
