500ml bottle from the Romsey Beer Emporium. A deep amber pour with a dense cream head; there’s a rich tropical fruit aroma fromthe moment the bottle is opened; the mouthfeel is soft and thick with some initial sweet tropical fruits, but immediately overtaken by the intensity of the hops giving a piney, grapefruit bitterness that contasts with the passion fruit body. This is definitely a great interpretation of the American IPA style. Excellent.
Bottle - strong fruity citrus aroma, golden amber, small carbonation giving small white head - soon dissipates. Good citrus tasting - easy drinking. 6bottlepack (390) - Devon, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2017

Cask @ Rumsey Wells. Golden with a small white head. Malty and fruity tones. Malt, fruit and britternes. Medium body with a long bitter / fruity finish. ForlornHope (514) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle at home. Orange and slightly cloudy with a thin white head. Strong aroma of marmalade and nettle hop. Initial sweetness leads to a bitterness which is somewhat harsh. More tangerine/orange fruit, stinky hop and sweet, syrupy malt. Bitter and astringent finish. Lots of flavour but a little unbalanced for me. john44 (3078) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2017

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Legacy rating.
Pours rich orange-amber with deep and lingering head. Aroma explodes with tropical fruits - passion fruit and pineapple in particular, with bags of resin underpinning it. Beautifully balanced but strongly defined in character, sweet biscuit to even out the great bitter hoppiness. Love it! Korcz (3375) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 3, 2016

Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A hazy amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, strawberry, some orange, grapefruit, slight pine and subtle pineapple. Taste of orange, grapefruit, some pine, a hint of passion fruit, pineapple, slight toasted malts, burnt caramel and subtle red berries. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long, dryish, piney and citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A very good take on an American IPA. A good amount of citrus and pine hop bitterness and sweet, caramel and toasted malts.

Butchers Hook, Southampton. The sweet malt body here does support the juicy citric hops so this feels quite balanced and drinkable. I hadn’t realised at the time that the abv was as high as 6.5% as it doesn’t feel that strong. For me the malt is not doing much more than balancing and supporting the hops. The malt is too pale, too biscuit like, and too bland, for my taste. The focus here is on the juicy hops, which thankfully held off, just, from burning my lips. I was OK with this, but it’s not really my thing. Stuartyboy (1648) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - SEP 14, 2016
