Bottle with unreadable date stamp. Pours light hazy golden with a small white head. Citrus, light sweet tropical fruits and very light sharpness in the nose. The flavour has citrus, light perfume/flowers/soap in a good way, hay, sweet tropical fruits, light sugar/caramel and light heavy onion like hops. Medium body, oily texture, fine carbonation, medium sweet and bitter and oddly enough light salty. Hoppy finish. Interesting, would like to try a fresh one.

Ipa de 7,5 % abv et 75 ebu, dont le nom est une forte tentation pour les habitus de ratebeer... Malts dorge pale, crystal et malt de bl. Houblonnage en chinook, cascade, columbus et centennial. Mon exemplaire tait 10 mois aprs sa date. Couleur ambr orang, avec un tout lger voile. Bulles trs fines, parses, monte lente. Mousse beige clair, crmeuse, stable 3 mm. Armes dabricot, lichee, pointe dananas, jasmin. 1re bouche souple la belle entame malt/houblon/fruits. Arrire-bouche avec une amertume forte, mais cisele. 2me superbe suite rsine/fruits/houblon. Arrire-bouche quilibre, au trs beau caractre. 3me la belle suite homogne, mais lharmonie infrieure. Arrire-bouche avec moins de relief. Longueur qui ne permet pas de retrouver lquilibrage des deux premires bouches. Jambes fines, serres, collantes en haut. Levure fine, un peu rsineuse, belle ligne. Alcool correct, mais in ne fait pas son niveau, do sa perte defficacit sur la longueur. Finale linaire. CONCLUSION: trs belles 1res bouches, mais la suite est en perte de vitesse .. ce qui est extrmement grave pour un "racer" Et pas de chance pour le "5", ctait bien essay de tenter les amateurs de ratebeer, mais ce nen est pas un ...

12 oz. bottle poured into pint glass. Can't believe I've never rated this one. Beautiful orange amber color. Aroma of pine, citrus, earthiness. Taste is super smooth with the malt playing second fiddle to the hops. A true classic indeed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A buzz in a bottle. While 7.5% isnt too high when it comes to IPAs, this beer gives me a quality buzz after only one or two. Strong bitter IPA.

Au premier abord a sent le houblon et la fleur lorange le pamplemousse et la mangue, une odeur rsineuse se fait sentir, une belle robe orange avec une belle mousse blanche lgre. En gout on retrouve les fruits prcdemment nonc avec une belle amertume. Au top au top au top!

Towey1989 (2463) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2017
Bottle from The Bottle Lab, Leek. Pours a clear pale amber colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of pine, orange, grapefruit, a little pineapple, caramel, a hint of nuttiness, subtle grass and some earthy hops. Taste of pine, orange, grapefruit, slight caramel, subtle roasted malts, some grass and earthy hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, lingering, slightly piney, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A very good IPA, lots of citrusy, grassy and earthy hops balanced really well with sweet malts. Another quintessential American IPA.
