500ml bottle from Reilly's, Fermanagh (£2.49): MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
This one was quite a nice IPA from Knockout, it was definitely an English style IPA but had leanings towards an American version at points too, particularly when the pine & grapefruit bitterness started to come through but it was just a touch weaker than I'd have liked. The citrus & orange flavours were well received & the beer was an easy one to drink throughout.
Bottle. Pours a hazy light orange beer with a big white head on top. Aroma of faint caramel malts, light kandi sugar and grains. Flavor is light sweet, nowhere near an IPA in my book, considering they label this as one. The sweetness and grainy influences dominate the palate, making this a quite boring and easy to drink beer. Fitting the style as listed here on RB, not fitting the style stated on the label. Meh.. McNeillR (2329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2015
Hazy golden amber, visible carbonation and a decent greyed pillow head. Odd corny biscuit, soapy and plasticy. Grainy, appley bitterness. Lemon and white flavour chewits. Bitterness is a battery licking steeliness. Firm carbonation throughout, not overcooked. Drags it’s heels a little on the finish, but is similarly weak, releaving soapy lemon linger. rosenbergh (11868) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015
I hope Norn Irish folk don’t lap this up as it’s anything but a juicy IPA.

500 ml bottle. From Beersiveknown. Thanks a lot Steve! Beersiveknown (5303) - NORTHERN IRELAND - FEB 22, 2015
Cloudy orange colour with a small white head.
Fruity hops, mild bitterness, biscuit sweetness and malt in the aroma. Nice.
The flavour is a bit milder with mild hops, biscuit sweetness, maltiness, mild papery dryness and a hint of bitterness. Not bad.
bottle at home from the brewery
slightly hazy pale burnished gold with pillowy foamy creamy head. Quite subtle nose, gentle fruit and berries on nose. Fairly lively carbonation, moderate bitterness, moderate body, peppery finish, building shortcake malt. Not so much an IPA but a decent pale ale
