radassace (693) - SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2019 Pours light straw with an off white head. Aroma of dank tropical mango and apricot, lime, pineapple and pine. Soft, medium mouthfeel. Taste is light biscuit and caramel, dank mango, pineapple, grapefruit peel, lime and pine resin. Medium to high bitterness on the finish. Satisfying beer!

BreweryTickers16 (5) - - MAY 31, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2019 Grapefruit, zesty, tart, moderately carbonated. Got a can from tesco, very zesty smell, initial taste is zest, strong alcohol on the back of the mouth, thick resinous feel (in a very good way) with quite a lot of fizz. The grapefruit is very overpowering in this particular drink which is a nice change of pace but I couldn't drink more than 2 as its too tarty for me Fantastic drink though from thornbridge one of the most respected and highly rated brewery's out there imo

2.9
Pimot (615) - Castelló de la Plana, SPAIN - APR 11, 2019
UPDATED: APR 11, 2019 Color amarillo translúcido con espuma baja blanca que desciende lentamente con residuo medio. Aroma ligero cítrico a naranja o limón maduros y notas de frutas de hueso, un poco rancio. Sabor en la misma línea, ligero, cítrico y con notas a hierba y albaricoque. Amargor medio-alto con final seco y regusto medio. Textura entre chispeante y acuosa, cuerpo medio y carbonatación medio-alta. Una Imperial IPA que no lo parece. Es super ligera, casi como una APA o IPA floja, con unos 7.4 grados completamente camuflados.

DarkElf (3346) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 13, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2019 19-Oct-13 (500-ml bottle, Bottled 20-May-13: Sample bottle from the distributor)
This beer pours a very hazy, golden body with an inch of fluffy, white head that settles to a bubbly sheet. The nose offers sweet, grainy malt and a wonderfully aromatic hop character that smells like sweet tea with orange wedges. The beer is similarly flavorful and balanced; the malt is light-medium sweet, grainy, and very lightly caramely while the hops are very citrusy, with flavors of orange, pink grapefruit, tea, and dry grass. The bitterness is lighter compared to what you get from American-brewed IIPAs, but I think it's wonderfully balanced throughout, with just plenty of lingering bitterness to keep the palate refreshed till the next sip. It's medium-plus in weight, medium in carbonation, and pleasantly dry for solid drinkability. By BJCP standards, the alcohol level falls just short of Imperial IPA, and by American standards, it comes across as a single IPA, but to me, it's just a great IPA with excellent balance and delicious flavor.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2019 Big bitter hops with mango and marzipan sweetness. Dank and earthy notes. Good, beefy dipa.
