Delicious. Orange, citrus, bitter zest. A full arrange of flavours but not too heavy in the mouth. Very long bitter aftertaste. Will grab another can next time I'm in Whole Foods. JohnRMurdoch (5248) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2018
Can from Wee Beer Shop. Murky yellow amber, good head. tangerine aroma. Boiled sweet grain flavour. Strong and bitter sweet. Good but I think overrated here. howardturner (14) - Frimley, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2018
07/03/2018 - can from XO wine shop Old Welwyn. Appearance- cloudy golden in colour with a small white head which leaves good legs down the glass.
Aroma: instant hit of orange rind ( specifically clementine), lemon peel, spiciness, slight rubber.
Taste: grapefruit grapefruit grapefruit!! Perfect dry bitterness (like eating the grapefruit pith) balanced with an after sweetness that is short lived and not cloying! Amazing mouthfeel with a light carbonation, but perfect for the style! Very slight taste of alcohol but for a 9.2% you wouldn't know it was that strong!
What a beer!! This is a brilliant DIPA and ticks all the bikes for me! Davros IX (635) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2018
Can at home from Beer Shop Hitchin. Sometimes in your life you have a beer that makes you sad when you finish the glass and this was one of those rare occasions. It looked and smelt good, but it was all about that flavour of well balanced bitter and citrus hops and I loved it. The hop oils coated the mouth and set my palate zinging from that bitterness. This is a true English double IPA and I say "long live the King." macca147 (863) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2018
355ml can. Pours a hazy orange gold with a whote head. Aroma: citrus, pine, mild grapefruit, mild grain notes. Taste: orange, lemon peel, pine, mild grapefruit and peach flavours. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Mild fruit sweetness followed by a boozy and mildly bitter finish. Quite easy drinking for the style. Quite good.

Appearance- cloudy golden, with a small foamy white head. Aroma- orange, mango, papaya, fresh hops, tropical fruit, pithy grapefruit. Taste- hop resin, juicy tropical fruit, orange peel, grapefruit and pineapple, sticky malt hints, clingy juicy bitterness, hints of rough malt, fruit juice, full, thick and sticky in the mouth. Good stuff. victorsampson96 (186) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2018
Pours a translucent, lemon-yellow beer. Medium-fine carbonation, and a fluffy white head. The moment you crack the can, an amazing aroma of tropical fruit floods the room with juicy goodness - sweet, sweet tropical fruit. First and foremost, bags of mango. Guava, pineapple, and dank pine undertones. Notes of alcohol at the back of the nose. On the palate, it's a whole new experience - grass, apricot, stone-fruit, dankness, lemon sherbert, and a tang of green nettle. Pretty tart, but searingly bitter. The carbonation is pretty soft, but the beer has a pleasant, medium body, which sits on the palate very nicely indeed.
The best thing about this beer is the balance that it strikes, and the way the raging bitterness meets the sweetness of the juice. Truly excellent Double IPA.

0.33 l can from 'Braukunstwerk', canned in December 2017. Hazy, orangeish amber with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, very fruity, grassy and slightly resiny aroma of mango, passion fruit, marijuana and some pine. Slightly sweet, moderately bitter, extremely fruity, grassy and dank taste of mango, passion fruit, tangerine, marijuana and some pine, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, fairly grassy and slightly resiny finish. Medium to full body, very smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very good, really fruity and smooth, lots of flavours and easily drinkable, despite the abv. jooilakon (373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2018
Can 330 ml from Borough Wines, Turnham Green. Aromas of tropical fruit and citrus with notes of grass. Hazy juice-like yellow body and big white head. Taste is not as rich as some of Beavertown's other DIPA's. There is an initial bitterness which returns in the aftertaste, with tropical fruit, citrus (mainly grapefruit) and grass. Great DIPA but not as good as e.g. Humuloid or M.A.D. explosivedog (1993) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 10, 2018
330ml can. Pours slightly hazy orange gold. Grapefruit, orange peel, big bitterness, bit piney, bit of caramel, bit of apricot and a load more grapefruit at the end. Some boozy heat. Decent body. Not much of an attempt at balance, but pretty tasty.
