COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

Kurtos (196) - Sydney, - FEB 14, 2013
Aroma. Smells mainly of caramel with some slight hoppiness. Appearance. Pours a nice earthy red colour. Taste. Toffee and bread flavours really some to come through here, though with not too much sweetness, considering the lack of hoppiness i wouldn’t really call it an ipa. Overall. I bought this beer wanting to try a new ipa, whilst bean a good beer it certainly doesn’t deliver in the ipa department.

Bottle. It pours mostly clear deep golden with a creamy white head. The aroma is grassy hops with light fruit and a nice malty caramel hint. The flavor is grassy and malty. Light spice.

Dark Golden colour with white foam. Malt and hops in both aroma and taste. Could have a lot more to offer.

poech73 (390) - Braine, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2017
UPDATED: APR 9, 2017 From AH Antwerp ::: Old fashioned IPA >> Bière blonde aux reflets orangés au col épais persistant et crémeux. Nez fruité et herbacé à la fois livrant des senteurs de melon de sous-bois un peu terreuses. Assez aqueux à l’attaque, le corps malté se révèle charnu fruité à l’abricot et à l’amaretti au palais, épais avec peu de carbonation. Malheureusement sans beaucoup de tenue, tous les arômes se confondent en milieux de bouche en une masse maltée pâteuse vaguement biscuitée et herbeuse qui se finit sur des notes amères acres et farineuses.#387

imdownthepub (14208) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
Bottled, 330ml at The Fizzy Moon Brewhouse, Leamington Spa, Warks. Burnished gold with white head. This is a light, quite malty beer with a bitterish edge, some cereal sweetness, some fruitiness. It’s fine.

(Flesje) Verrassende ipa ruikt fris is ook fruitig van smaak en heeft zijn bittertje maar vooral zijn nasmaak is gewoon verrassend te noemen. Zachte nasmaak voor een ipa met fruit (volgens mij ananas/citrus) die in je neus blijft hangen waardoor je nog een slok wilt nemen.

Fin (10300) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Bottle courtesy of Mum and Keith, purchased from Whitby beer shop, consumed at home Tuesday 21st March 2017, another non beer night when I naughtily drinking a beer. A fairly pedestrian IPA, lacks a little in the hoppiness and bitterness departments. Light fruitiness, deep gold in colour, it’s ok. A6 A4 T5 P3 Ov11 2.9

330ml bottle. Pours slightly cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel and malt, light hoppy notes. Taste is sweet and caramelly, low bitterness and low hops. Not bad, but not a very believable IPA. I've tasted hoppier lagers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
