My personal fave of all the UK brewer's interpretations of the US IPA. Amazing aroma and mouthfeel. Would be much further up the IPA charts on here if it was more readily available outside the UK. Despite what it says in the bottle I prefer it chilled rather than at cellar temperature. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Bottle at home from the Bishop's Cave. A really spiky IPA that was dominated by the bitter hops. It paired beautifully with a prawn jalfrezi and it more than held its own against a curry that blew my head off. A really "jagged" beer that came into its own alongside the spicy food.

Clear amber, white froth. Caramely, piney aroma. Similar flavour, fruity with slightly rough bitterness and light alc warmth. Not fresh anymore, lacking some of the presumed fruity traits. Still quite nice.

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle @ THT. Pours a hazy golden beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, citrussy with some resinous notes as well. Flavor is light bitter, hoppy and grassy, rather dry and medium carbonated. Aftertaste is long and light bitter. Nice one.

Craftakt (84) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2017
Extrem gutes Aroma mit tropischen Früchten, Pinie und leicht blumig. Im Geschmack zunächst leichte Süße, Würzigkeit und grasige Noten. Wird zum Abgang überlagert von einer anhaltenden Hopfenbitterkeit.

Shared at the August THT. Pours a hazy golden yellow, white head. Citra-forward, tropical, fresh. Very clean and refreshing.

THT August at Kwartje. Sampled from growler. Slightly unclear golden with white head. Sweet malts, big citrus, grassy and weedy hops. Big sweet and moderate bitter. Medium body and soft carbonation.

Drank 31-07-17 while watching GoT. This IPA has a full body. The beginning is a bit malty, neutral, a bit orange. Taste continues quite bitter, especially the aftertaste. Not that fresh and a bit too bitter for me.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 Nice sweet Ipa, hoppy herbal nose, golden and hazy, herbaceous and resinous flavours, thin note of citrus and grapefruit. medium body sweet ending with medium bitterness...

jjsint (3317) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Keg tap at the Maypole, Cambridge. Deep gold, hazy with a light white head. Ambrosial hop aroma with lots of pine and lemongrass. The taste is not so good. Too hot and boozy at first which for 6.8% isn’t great, but I get used to it after the initial sips. Bittersweet finish with lovely soft carbonation. There are issues which keep it from being a top IPA but was enjoyable overall.

AssKicker (585) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUL 22, 2017
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 !
