Light copper colour with thin lacy head. Aroma and flavour have a great deal of powerful and complex hop notes. Very floral and citrusy with a little caramel too.

joe19612 (3172) - Camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Pours a hazy orange colour with a fluffy white head, the aroma is hoppy with plenty of fruit, the taste is medium bitterness and with a dry bitter finish.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 Golden, small brownish head. Does what it says on the bottle. A safe, standard IPA. Reduced to £1 to clear - what a beery bargain!

DruncanVeasey (8643) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
24/06/16. Peppery monkey nut back like the PA almost lingering with smoke depth. Overlay of mango slivers, red polished apple, peach jelly and pine. Aroma of mint, caraway, Fruit Salad, polished pine, nice smelling shit. Really good IPA with a husky English malt backbone- none of that syrupy peach flan Crystal crap. That minty Sorachi coconut thing also sets it apart. Worth buying again, in quantity

GoufCustom (2352) - HONG KONG - AUG 17, 2017

330 ml bottle bought at M&S in Langham Place, Mong Kok.

Looks: Clear golden orange colour with a thin knob of dirt-like yeast sediments; One-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and very sweet Ale malt, with pineapples, peaches, apricots, yellow fruits, honey, candied fruits, floral, sugar, light spices, biscuits, lemon and grass.

Taste: Close to medium sweet Ale malt, with strong Amberness, grains, grapefruits, floral, molasses, spices, strong herbs, dry biscuits, strong lemon peels, mid to strong bitter hops and grass.

Body: Medium body. Dry and slick palate.

Mouth Feel: Good strong Amber maltyness in a fairly thick background. Strongly citrusy as in fruit peels. Very herbal with lingering bitterness. Flowery with medium sweetness. Spicy dry biscuit to round. Solid!

Hoppiness: Pineapples, peaches, apricots, yellow fruits, candied fruits, floral, light spices, lemon and grass in nose. Grapefruits, floral, spices, strong herbs, strong lemon peels and grass in taste; Bitterness is strong for a lasting, close to high astringent sweet-bitter Amber malty finish.

After Taste: Dry. Herbal citrusy and strong bitter to mouth.

Coments:This one got a nice tropical sweet hop aroma to start things up, and the lemon peel herbal taste is equally strong and charming. A well made English IPA with an American masquerade, a great hoppy Summer quencher and will buy again for sure!

ManVsBeer (11715) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2017
Bottle from Marks & Spencer, Manchester. Golden-amber with a thin head. Stated pale ale with a clear strength to it, but there’s lots of fruitiness here too, especially in its nose.
