One of the first IPAs I had, and I stuck with it for a long time. Nice tropical aroma and taste, good maltiness. One of those hoppy beers that satisfies you and leaves you refreshed.

jmgreenuk (8412) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle at The Scene, Dubai. Poured a hazy light amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is creamy yeast, big grassy citrus fruit. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a light crispy refreshing, super grass hop, pine needle, citrus, light pepper spice palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Awesome. A really superb APA.

Heidbummer (358) - SCOTLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle from Villeneuve Wines. Pours chestnut brown, tight white head. Proper IPA aroma of hops and fruit. Soft mouthfeel, perhaps less on the taste than promised by the aroma. But a good IPA and very drinkable.
