500ml bottle. Bronze with a scummy white foam. Annoying peach iced tea aroma; floral, peachy, a bit sickly. That same flavour without the hops to lay claim to IPA status. Sponge cake infused with peach air freshener; honey, orange Smartie notes. Would’ve loved this 5 years ago but I’m a fussy bugger these days and too into the hops. Pleasant enough but too watery, peachy and malt-sweet for me or the missus.
Pale yellow, light haze. Fruity tropicals on nose, fruity sweetness. Medium light body.Taste is malt and citrus. Grapefruity finish. beer_head (45) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Dark golden appearance with white fading head. Orange marmalade aroma. The aroma translates somewhat to the taste. There is also another distinctive flavour in there which it took me a while to put my finger on, but I would say it’s water melon. This follows on with a pleasant if not too strong an aftertaste. It’s quite an interesting drink, slightly different from the norm which is good, not your typical 5% IPA. MayumiH (1214) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Cask at Holborn Whippet. Golden colour with a white head. Pine, citrus and grapefruit. Hops with subtle malts. Dry finish. Pretty average, nice tho. TheKernOwl (214) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Gentle fruit (+ apricot + pineapple + grapefruit). Vegetal/musky whiff, bit like Nelson Sauvin but much less tropical. Tastes grassy, and of waxy lemon, with a bit of caramel malt. Bit too restrained for my liking, as per previous time I tried it, but covers a lot of bases (albeit faintly). RichTheVillan (7766) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2016

Cask at the rake. Quite pleasant but pretty boring. Not hoppy enough but a strange taste blackradioboy (208) - SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Bottle from M&S. Quite nice. Sharp flavour with some background understated grapefruit followed by a light bitterness.

Clear amber pint with thin head. Light aroma of lemon and nuts. Light taste of grass, lemon, caramel. Some tartness before a medium, long bitter finish kicks in. A little watery but reasonably good overall.jjsint (3002) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016

Bottle from Saintsbury’s, consumed at home. Light gold, pretty much clear. Big white head but ir settles fairly quickly. Gentle orange and apricot aroma. Tastes bitter with a soft citrus sweetness, turning to a more emphatic bitter to the long luicy hoppy finish. Strong tropical fruit on the aftertaste. Carbonation is aggressive. It’s a good beer if fairly muted for an IPA. Easy drinking, it hangs together very nicely, hence the fairly high rate. LazyPyro (1124) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2016
500ml bottle from The Bottle Bank. Clear golden colour with a one finger white head and good retention, lacing. Aroma of American hops, grapefruit, malt, citrus, pine. Lovely hoppy flavour with a good amount of malt too, well balanced, sweet and bitter, citrus, lemon. Moderate carbonation, nice mouthfeel, little bit sweeter than other IPAs but I like it. A decent IPA.
