fidelis83 (2383) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Clear orange pour with a 1 finger, frothy, off white head. tons of orange, grapefruit, floral and berry candy in the aroma, some caramel, biscuit and cereal backing that up. Flavor offers up some nice cereal and caramel notes up front, hanging on strong as the big hit of orange, grapefruit and berry come in, then some fruity and doughy yeast and a large dose of floral hops and mineral notes near the finish. Medium body, nice creamy feel nearly all the way through, a bit more dry to the finish, moderate carbonation. Fantastic IPA, though it has a heavier feel and ABV% than some beers claiming a DIPA/IIPA designation, so it might not be quite as refreshing as some of its contemporaries. However, it makes up for it by being a really well executed, very enjoyable beer.

It pours golden with orange tinges. The head is off white with good head retention. Aromas are floral and citrus. The flavors feature grapefruit and citrus with a bready backbone. It has a moderately high bitterness that is long lasting.

Can. A lovely IPA. A very good beer. Pours a lovely orange colour. This beer brings back memories of my trip to new York city, had a bottle in my hotel room one night. A very malty beer as uk beers tend to be.

beerstar88 (585) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2017
Ein sehr frischer fruchtiger Geruch. Zitrusfrchte im Antrunk gefolgt von starkem Hopfengeschmack. Liegt wohl an den 7 Hopfensorten!

JPDIPSO (6209) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Deep golden color with a modest head, but a thick sheet of lace. Aromas of pine and citrus, along with a backdrop of caramel and pale malt. Fairly chew and lightly oily. Citric start that leads to some honey and pale malt. Light pine and orange zest in the finish and into the linger. 2/12

romanstep (520) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 21, 2017
W nosie średnio intensywnie, słodkie cytrusy, dojrzałe tropiki, ziołowość, i niestety sporo nut miodowych. Barwa złota, klarowne, piana średniej wysokości o drobnych ziarnach. W smaku dużo żywicy, marmolady cytrusowej, grapefruita i ciasteczkowości, na finiszu lekkie alko, generalnie słodko-gorzko, klasycznie. Goryczka wysoka, grapefruitowa. Podsumowując mogła być niezła rzecz, a tak jest tylko średnio, potwierdza się teza, że amerykańskie piwa trafiają do Europy lekko zleżałe. Butelkowane 10/31/2016.
