Sigmund (7493) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
Shared 500 ml bottle at local tasting, thanks to Holmen2. ABV is 6.0%. Clear deep golden to orange colour, moderate to low white head. Nice and "typically English" aroma, toffee, caramel and sourish hops. Much the same elements in the flavour too, but less nice - seems a bit unbalanced. Drinkable, but far from the best IPA I’ve had.

Clear golden, modest head. Persistently unfresh aroma, with liquorice, citrus and lemon grass. Decent hoppy taste. abemorsten (3615) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014

Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin white top. Nose is super pungent. Lots of fruits - mango, pineapple, peach, nectarine, grapefruit. More fruit intenseness in the mouth, with some warming sweet malts. This is incredibly tasty stuff in the American/Double IPA vein. Real quality. johndoughty (5449) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
