Bottle. Pours golden yellow/orange with virtually no head. Aroma reminiscent to that of a traditional English bitter - fungi etc. Some hay and caramel, straw, malt heavy. Flavour is a little more interesting. Has a decent about of complexity and depth. Flavour is quite bitter, candied, boozy. More depth than Mad Dog, but still far from amazing.
330 ml. bottle. Pours hazy orange-amber with an enduring disc of creamy bubbles and a few floaties. Nose is pineapple, earthy toffee, zesty orange, light resiny wood. Tastes of toffee, orange, toast, dry grass. Notes of mint, cocoa and wood give a nice earthy complexity. Near-medium body has medium, but silky smooth carbonation and a great balance.

Pours muddy pale amber colored with beautiful creamy white head. Smells herbal hoppy, spicy, slight fruity. Starts with very herbal hops, flowery, with some kind of lavender and lilac. Middle part has spicy and strong floral-herbal hops. Goes into a very strong hoppy-herbal finish with lots of lavender! Overall, a very herbal IPA, really good!
(33 cl bottle) orange, hazy, small white head. Aroma of marmalade, piney, with a hint of lavender or sandalwood in the finish. Taste is strongly bitter with medium sweetness. Slick and slightly oily texture. Rather soft carbonation. Full body, a bit sticky. Good.
