330ml brown bottle. Medium golden pour, faint haze. Fat white cap, nice retention and lace rings. Nose has orangey citrus. Taste has grains, bread, some fruitiness, marmalade. Finishes with sweetish orange peel hops and medium fruity notes. Medium body, mild carbonation, lightish palate, drinkable.
Nice fruity hoppiness. Lightly bitter and pretty refreshing. Overall it’s a good old IPA aussiealchemist (55) - Berwick Victoria, AUSTRALIA - JUN 3, 2017
Bottle at Craft Burger, Cromer, Norfolk, UK. Pours slightly hazy tan with small white head. Not much aroma, some malt. Taste is caramel malt dominated, some fruit and citrus apparent. Palate is reasonably full, not watery, mild bitterness. What is curious is why this is called an IPA. It is more like an Amber ale. Not horrible bit not great. harrisoni (18801) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle at The Speaker. Hazy amber colour lasting cream head. Some toffee some dusty hop more an English style ipa more an English premium bitter. Some interesting features but not great for me. blueruin (118) - - MAY 1, 2017
Pours a classic amber with minmal frothy head. Moderate apparent carbonation. Aroma of mushroom, malt and caramel. Caramel-y flavour with some bread, a bit thin, too sweet. Fine, but nothing too special. FatPhil (16351) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2017

Mushroomy nettley aroma, some sweet caramel. Deep orange, brief head. Taste is caramelly, a bit mushroomy. Palate thin and a bit fizzy, some sweet stickiness. Vaguely tollerable, but only because the previous one was crap.
Pours clear amber with a finger of white head. Aroma of malt, citrys, bread. Taste is sweet caramel, mild bready finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation. hohops (1021) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Appearance- quite a dark amber, clear, a small head which dissipates quickly. Aroma- caramel malt, biscuit, toffee, raisin, honey traces. Taste- brambly fruit, hops, bitter malt, grapes, good malt presence. Might be imagining it but there’s some white wine in there too. Short bitter finish. Heidbummer (680) - SCOTLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle. Pours deep amber, surprising lack of head. Soft malty aroma. Triple hopped apparently but the Goldings predominates. It’s a rather traditional ale. The abv props it up well, otherwise it’d be very ordinary. OK. But just too trad for me. Bubeer (462) - - FEB 1, 2017
Clean amberish gold. Thin head. Aroma intensity 3.75/5. Rotten eggs, metal and citrus aroma with notes of blackcurrant. Heavy bitter. Light to medium body. Soft carbonation. Half-oily texture. Lemon aftertaste. ManVsBeer (10640) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Bottle @ Moon Under Water, Manchester. Deeper amber coloured with a thin head. Has a strength to it, but an overriding crispness and a healthy dryish pale ale texture.
