Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Dark golden colour, thick head. Not much aroma to it, complex range of flavours. Enjoyable but also a little bit of a muddle.

Hazy light copper, large slightly off-white head which holds back the aroma a little, but hints of citrus and yeast. Flavour is quite boozy, some citrus, slightly floral, pine, a little malt. Moderate bitter finish. Decent.

BlazerT (1111) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle. Tulip. Golden, little hazy with big, white, semi-densed head. Medicore lacing and good head retention. Fruity and yesty aroma, little peachy. Taste is light to medium bitter pretty well balanced by malty (biscuity) sweetness. In overall highly drinkable, but still an average IPA>

ThirstyBird (2925) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Thanks to Mark for this! Pours a hazy golden color with a light tan head. The smell is toasted malt, fruit. The taste is crisp fruit, citrus, toasted malt flavor in the middle ending dry and crisp. Then body is light+ with nice, fine carbonation.

Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2007
Golden, with a nice head. The aroma has fruity, hoppy, caramel and alcohol notes, and I find the same in the flavour, that has a lot of fruit notes. The finish is nice and bitter. The alcohol is a bit too dominant IMO.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2007
Bottle -- NIce cloudy golden yellow typical of the style with a medium fluffy white head with a little retention and lacing. Lots of fruit in the aroma: passionfruit, grapefruit, citrus in general, and maybe a touch of cinnamon. Vaguely creamy palate with some noticeable carbonation. The flavour is a repeat of the aroma but with a nice bitter finish and quite prominent alcohol. Quite good.
