330ml bottle chilled. Really surprised at how bad this looks, like puddle water, no head at all. Almost zero carbonation which I don’t think suits the style at all. The result is a sickliness to what could be a really decent beer.
Bottle at Tuesday Share, Taphouse, Copenhagen - Amber pour with big white head. Sweet fruity and malty aroma and taste, caramel, toffee, sweet malty into a bitter finish. Very nice. Cuso (8933) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle at Tø Øl tasting at RJ. Deep Golden color with medium off-white head. Strong citrus, floral hops in aroma. Nice citrus hoppy taste with peaches, solid malty backbone. Medium long hoppy bitter finish. jamestulloch (4268) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Clear amber body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Medium off-white head. Average carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of pine, cooking apple and apricot. Flavour of resin, grass, caramel and a long, bitter finish. Very dry. Medium body with an oily texture. Light fizz. A bitter beast. teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 7, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush. It pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy with notes of hay, grapefruit, citrus, caramel. Taste is quite sweet with notes of honey, mango, ripe apricots, dried fruits and grains. Finishes medium sweet and medium dry with soft carbonation. Overall, tasty treat Stuu666 (14563) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle at home. Sweet sticky toffee malt, light pine fruit, should have had fresher though.

A rich, malty IPA without the injection of complementary hops it requires. It is cloudy for some reason (not good). This tastes like it should be a stronger, aged beer. Not the punchy IPA I was expecting.

A hazy amber beer with a sweet, malty aroma. Along with the hops there’s a strong grapefruit hit but a surprisingly sweet one. The hops are balanced well so it’s not sour and it’s altogether too drinkable for a 7.4! SlackerMads (3467) - DENMARK - APR 13, 2014
Bottle, bottled in August 2013. Unclear dark orange with a minimal head that doesn’t live up if you swirl the glass. Pine, citrus, light caramel, white bread. Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation. Medium sweet and bitter. Good IPA, but a shame that it’s so flat and unclear. With a little carbonation this could be pretty good. Still quite pleasant.

Smell of hops, grass, pepper. Cloudy amber colour, minimal white head. Aroma of hops, pepper, mead, yeast. A faint of licorice. Very sweet. Very little carbon. Oily and full-bodied. harrisoni (19165) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle on the 2nd Friday night is Bottled Beer Night 2014. From The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Cloudy hazy dirty golden brown with a lasting bubbly white head. Aroma of grapefruit but sharp gooseberry as well. And some sweet toffee. I’m guessing from the aroma I’m looking at a big IPA or DIPA. Very piney on the aroma. It’s sweet. For someone who likes a fully attenuated beer this has way too much residual sugar left in the beer. Too sweet. It unbalances the hops. I feel bad but this may even have to be a low rating. I love these 2 breweries and yes there is some nice hop going on and a lovely grapefruit sting on the finish, but it’s too sweet for me. Ken, where are you??? I need you.
