ForlornHope (533) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours hazy amber with a thin white head. The first whiff shows that this is one hoppy beer - pine resin galore with an earthiness that reminds me of a patch of nettles on a hot day. The sip has a little sweetness, immediately followed with a massive bitterness. There is a juicy maltiness in the background, but the overwhelming taste is of nettle, wood and resin. As you would guess, a raspingly dry finish. I found it slightly unbalanced, but I suspect the hopheads put there would like this.

sebletitje (10178) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2016
Bouteille 50cl, de et partagée avec Pierre et Thomas. BB 31.05.2017. Batch # 1829. Couleur orange, col blanc crémeux léger. Arôme au nez fruité tropical et agrumes assez plaisant. Rétro malté contre-balance le tout apportant des effluve smalts plus en avant, centrées sur le malt pâle. Palais est fruité assez US dans l’approche, léger tropical, avec des notes agrumes rappelant le Cascade et autres houblons C. Caramel et caractère grains restent plus en avant. Très léger, se boit facilement tout en gardant une inspiration anglaise niveau levure, malgré ce côté américain dans l’usage des houblons.

Towey1989 (3031) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, some lemon, slight pine, a little peach, a hint of biscuity malts and subtle grassy, floral hops. Taste of orange, grapefruit, some lemon, slight peach, a little pine, a hint of biscuity malts, maybe caramel and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, fruity, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A really nice, hoppy APA with a good amount of fruit and slight sweetness. Really drinkable, nice.

BeerViking (4946) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2012
Cask at Pigs Ears, Richmond upon Thames. Copper coloured with a thin head and a very faint haze, good hoppy grapefruit and toffee aroma, sharp fruit, nuts and biscuity malt in the body, then a refreshing dry spicy finish.

JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pretty good pale. Good citrus aroma. Too bittered I think. And this is mr. Ibu speaking. Good starter for their excellent ipa.

lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange colour with a white small head. Aroma of biscuity malts, strong floral hops, citrus and mango. Flavour of strong floral hops, lemon juice, mango, biscuity malts, grass and dry hay. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a long lingering bitter finish. Refreshing. Great stuff.
