HopsIPAndDrunk's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
HopsIPAndDrunk (43) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 3, 2011
Aroma is a hay/basement combo. Has a ’metallic’ sort of presence. Possesses a golden amber color that is coupled with a hazy-liquid appearance. Head proved minimal upon the pour, settling quickly into oblivion. For its short life, it was minimal and white. Despite this, brew does contain some persistant carbonation. Light sour taste, with a strong citrus background. Light-bodied with a thin texture. The finish is long and astrigent. Pretty decent Belgian White.

Keg at The Squirrel, Farnborough. This used to be a fave in days of old when it was exciting to see it on yocally. Sour edged cloves and fruit with added chemicals. A cloudy dark amber. Fluffy white head. Light bitter with a sweet edge. Overly chemical tasting. Medium bodied yet thin. Light carb. Longish finish. Just tastes fake. Mass produced.

First beer my wife would drink and enjoy. Easy to drink with some orange flavor coming through, but seemed to lack depth and complexity. Enjoyable to drink with food and on its own.

Hazy copper body with white head. Coriander and fruit (banana) flavours. Light body and right carbonation, but the high flavour of yeast is disturbing.

BojanM (19) - Banja Luka, BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA - OCT 4, 2017
Narandžasta boja, skoro bez pjene. Aroma limuna i cvijetna aroma, osjeti se miris ruže. Nema klasičnu aromu pšeničnih piva. Veoma blage gorčine, ugodno za popiti.

I love this beer, although it did taste best when I had to swim over to the bar in Hawaii.

330ml bottle from The Co-op, Reading. Light amber colour with white head. Big coriander, big pesto, yeast, citrus, light spices.

Had this in various places on both sides of the Atlantic and whilst it's not something you can have a lot of, I find it a really enjoyable ale in the summer as the citrus hit is refreshing. Sometimes I notice the coriander too much but would recommend you give this a try if you haven't. Best from a bottle I think.

Tjomleif (253) - NORWAY - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle. Clear amber color with ivory foam. Mild sugary, sweet malt, herbal wit spice aromas. Average mouthfeel.

Rickard's White by a different name. Citrus flavours dominate this unfiltered summer beer. Refreshing on a hot day and safe choice at a local pub with limited selection. Nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
