Piwo metne w kolorze bursztynowo-pomaranczowym nalewa sie prawie bez piany. Pomomo iz wypite po terminie to uwazam ze i tak jest bardzo owocowe i chmielowe, lekko miodowe z wyrazna goryczka i lekko rozgrzewajacym alkoholem. sugscott (8) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2017 does not count

Bottle from a bottle swap, thanks Idealpint!Gebels (94) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Again not a great aging beer. The fruitiness is there though rather as a memory of what this beer used to be. Sweet and hoppy. Smooth
Not the most fresh IPA i’ve ever drank but still great fruitiness in aroma and also in taste, well body and smooth, cant even imagin how it taste whan was fresh

330ml bottle thanks to Jashiu.
Drunk on 12th march 2017 so not so fresh and generally I shouldn’t rate it but I think it’s worth mentioning that even ageing this beer is still good and enjoyable and definitely not easy to achieve in such style. In v8 comparing to v6 and v7 bitterness was too heavy for me. Davros IX (581) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Bottle at home. A lovely cloudy appearance, lots of tropical fruit on the nose and plenty of them to taste in the beer. It’s a very rich and thick beer and one that has to be experienced, but perhaps it was a bit too rich for me; hence the score. mr_h (6072) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 22, 2017

Bottle from Bottledog. Colour is bright amber orange, with a medium foam white head. Nose is lovely. Lots of fresh mango and guava, menthol hop, minerals, grapefruit peel, orange peel, musty grain, musty ripe tropical fruit, pine, slight funk. Taste is orange and grapefruit citrus peel, pine, menthol, fresh mango, guava, minerals. Finish is very bitter citrus peel, with lingering grapefruit and pine, and then menthol. Guy in the shop told me the v9 was much better. He was wrong. GlasgowTAD (2007) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a notable white head which lingers. Aroma is tropical fruits. Taste is tropical fruit sweet, mango sweet, highly pine bitter, hint of caramel sweetness. Full body with a voluptuous mouthfeel.
