Cask at Borefts 12. Big white frothy head. Straw yellow pour. The aroma Is very hoppy which is a big clue to what lies behind in the flavour. Nice bitterness on the palate. The sample I tasted was a little on the warm side but I can't help but feel it should be served a little cooler which would have enhanced the experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Couleur orangée à peine voilée, mousse correcte qui tient relativement bien. Très parfumée au nez avec des notes de résineux et un chouïa de caramel. Grosse sécheresse en fin de bouche et amertume prononcée. Notes d’agrumes dominantes, notamment la peau d’orange et surtout le pamplemousse. La finale sèche s’estompe un peu lorsque la bière se réchauffe, et laisse place à une petite rondeur caramélisée. En v’là une IPA qui tabasse bien !

Yorker (2006) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2017
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours cloudy golden with a white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma and flavour are citrus, caramel, and pine - with a bitter finish.

Now this is how IPAS/pale ales should be :) lots of flavour, orange with a slight grassy overtone. Lovely drink!

330ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£3.00):
Another really enjoyable beer from Buxton & very much on par with their Ace Edge offering, although this one definitely seemed more balanced & easy to drink. The beer looked fantastic after I poured it & there was a lot of early citrus & pine coming through to get you interested from the start. I liked the touches of sweetness & the tropical flavours were nice but I’d have liked to see more of the later when it came to the nose. Overall it’s a great beer from the brewery & one that I’d happily go back to again at some point in the future.

Delicously sweet and floral aroma. Fills a glass with a cloudy orange colour and frothy pale head with great lacing on glass. Sweet oranges and light bitter floral hops upfront. Nice lingering biterness too. Good subtle ying and yang. Easy drinking.

kaserov (752) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 6, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa y ligeramente chispeante. Aroma a malta caramelizada, humedad, resina. Sabor a cáscara de naranja, malta caramelizada (algo menos presente que en aroma), resina de pino, con toques herbales y una sensación de humedad en boca que mete miedo. Amargor medio tirando a leve que se acentúa algo en postgusto junto con resina y hierba. Muy interesante y distinta.

Pours amber with a decent white head. Malt and pine on the nose with some citrus rind. Orange, pine and grain finish sharp and bitter. Nice.

SebBrews (183) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JUN 5, 2017
330 ml bottle. Bottled October 2016. Pours semi-clear copper with thin white head. Nose is pine, orange peel, mango. Taste is medium bitter and follows the nose. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Average carbonation. A not-so-fresh IPA, so the hop profile is quite mellowed out.
