Bottle. Pours hazy straw gold, whispy white head. Aroma is pungent citrus and bright fruity hops - perhaps nelson sauvin - behind light caramel backbone. Taste follows. Nice bitter finish that lingers on tongue. A damn fine IPA in the mold of Norwegian/nogne o-type hop and malt bill.

Great beer, very strong and packing in punch. Not sure I could drink it all night, couldn’t afford to anyway. But a couple of these when sitting in a comfy chair after a hard days slog is no bad thing.

01110110011001010111001001111001001000000110100001 - or in English very hoppy, almost dry, not bad. For a beer that they give you the recepie for this would be a cracking try at home home brew. I thought it lacked a finish is all. Nice though light florals, nice bitterness, sweet enough without being cloying and very drinkable.

"english style leaning with the malt balance. not really my thing. i dog the hops used, spicy and floral, but the beer is too malty for what i like in the style.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks Tom L. Slightly hazy deep golden-orange. Aroma of stale fruity hops. Flavor has light malt sweetness, a bit of honey and somewhat stale fruity hops. Medium-bodied. Might be good when fresher, hope to try again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is quite hoppy. Citrus, caramel malts, grapefruit, wood, a bit floral. Thiner than expected but a decent medium body. Flavor is floral, citrus, orange, light candied malt. A decent IPA but I don’t see the big draw with this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass a light yellow with a nice white head.
Aroma is hoppy citrus sweetness.
Flavor is juicy sweet with some mild bitterness. Less hoppy than the average IPA yet quite doable.
Very smooth & palatable. Would like a second bottle. Please.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 330ml bottle on 10/8/2014. Pours a murky golden with a mall head. Has a pleasant aroma featuring lots of caramel malt and fruity hops. Taste wise, it’s quite malt forward, with lots a caramel and a touch of toffee. There’s a fair bit of sweet tropical and stone fruit in there, leading to a firm, satisfying hop bitterness at the back. Has a fullish body and lively carbonation. Not typically US in style, but still very flavoursome, All up, another good’n from Yeastie Boys.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
From Sips. Translucent dark orange-copper with creamy looking off-white head. Smells of overripe pineapple, bubblegum/slightly artificial sweetness, hop. Tastes of crisp malt, hop, some soap and the same bubblegum, a little spice in the finish. Body is a little light, almost frothy. Sweetness is not cloying but quite odd; other flavours not big enough to be that interesting.
