UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Draft. I tried this one again, and this must have been from a newer keg they had tapped. Much improved over my initial tasting. Medium amber color. Medium carbonation. Complex flavors: sweet honey, citrus and very strong hop aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet finish. Not as heavy or as high ABV as Flying Dog Raging Bitch, but still too heavy to drink more than 1 or 2 at a sitting. Much too heavy for post-game beers.

surething_ii (197) - enkvice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 12, 2017
Bottle from Yeme. Mission impossible to make any sort of head. On the other hand, it has everything IPA should have. Citrus aroma and taste and nice bitter finish. An okay beer.

Fullpintofbeer (307) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2017
Can from a local Tesco. Golden/amber colour, huge head which disappears quickly, clear. Aroma of grapefruit peel, lemon, pine. Bitter taste, long finish, medium body, lively. Alright and drinkable.

jasonbenali (178) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Pours clear amber with clean white head and good lacing. Medium carbonation. Nice looking beer. Aroma has lovely caramel malts backed by pine, pineapple, marmelade and apricot. Taste is sweet with a pleasant bitterness and good body, with touch of saltiness in a medium finish. Not a hop rocket but a balanced, flavoursome IPA.

paulohare (2) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 18, 2017 does not count
Malt on the nose and very boozy. Dark (for an ipa) pour with heavy head, dissipated quickly. Apple on the palate and nice hoppy tang but ultimately too much alcohol in the finish. Not gassy in spite of the heady pour. Long finish but just too boozy. (It is 7% mind🤓)

ryanscourt (1427) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2017
Mix between new west coast ipa still with some malt profile. Not completely pale ale.

Clear orange with a big white head. Grass, peach and light grapefruit paired with sweet notes. A good beer but was somehow awaiting more.
