Scopey (14229) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle at GBBF 2012. It pours golden yellow, with a medium white head. The nose is fresh pine, resin, hopsack, sherbet and orange citrus. The taste is spritzy sherbet, lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, fresh pine and leaf, with a pleasantly bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well balanced, refreshing and rather drinkable. A great IPA.

Very solid beer! Very easy to drink. Citrus, and very nice hops. Not a super hop in the face beer but very well crafted.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Nothing to complain about.. Balanced and super friendly. Great for anyone who thinks IPAs are overly bitter. Tangerine, orange and sweet ruby red grapefruit nuances, are balanced by layers of toasty, caramel, doughy maltiness, while still leaving a mild hoppy flavor lingering on your palate. So easy to drink.. Rich and round, yet bitter and mouthwatering. A good brew. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle in nj. Light copper with frothy white foam. Nice lacing. Nice hoppy taste. Thought it could use a little less malty taste. Long lasting sticks to your tongue bitterness. Glad I got the chance to try it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thisis12ptfont (1167) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Faint aromas of citrus hops and some bread. See through copper with a decent foam. Nice sting on the throat from the bittering hops. A subtle and smooth caramel, bread. Overall, this IPA is balanced to perfection. A fantastic yet agressive beer with a strong alcohol sting. Id give this an A+ rating.

Theydon_Bois (18927) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods, Union Sq, reviewed on train from NYC to Montreal - 03/03/12. Poured into a pint glass to a clear amber colour with a decent white head that soon faded. Sweet floral hops, pine, grapefruit on the nose. Taste as nose, fairly sweet tasting IPA with a dose of butterscotch in there. Medium bodied, low carbonation and a lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Great IPA!
