It smells hoppy and sweet. The taste is first nice sweet-hoppy then it more becomes fruity-hoppy and the sweet is less. Good! 10/10/10/11/-/10 madmitch76 (26366) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2012

9.5%. Cloudy amber brown beer. Slightly dry palate. Wow! Finally an English beer with real balls!! Rich rich salty malt with plenty of hops making their presence felt as well. The malt is also creamy and the hops well integrated. Really comes over as a Barleywine but who cares - it’s English and full of flavour! Whoo Hooo!

Can. Light haze on this gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Airy palette, mildly dry, decent fine minerally carbonation. Smooth malts, a light creamy sweetness. Good orange and orange peel. Light hop spice. Mild mango. Slightly tangy pine. Light crisp finish. Seems like a very different beer from 2009, much lighter and much more modern.
660ml Bottle (at 9.5%ABV per the Bottle).: Got in trade from stobbe74; THANKS Soeren! Aroma of malt, hops, Earth, citrus, and a hint of caramel. Poured a muddy brown/orange in color with a small, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout around the edges. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of malt, citrus, oranges, pine, light resin, tropical fruit, and hints of Earth and Caramel. Medium body. Oily, then medium to dry texture. Average carbonation. Light malt, citrus, hop, resin, pine, light tropical fruit finish is light to medium sweet, medium bitter, and dry. 9.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout. dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Thanks Aaron. Pours light brown with a small off white head. Nose is light citrus, some pine and other dark fruits. Grass and sweet caramel malts too. FLavor is sweet and just a tad bitter, great balance for an english IPA. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean and has a shorter aftertaste. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 Cerveza color Ambar algo turbia con cabeza de espuma blanca poco duradera. Aroma afrutado y fresco. Sabor citrico con toques a pino, gran cuerpo e intensas notas a lupulo con final muy seco. Gran cerveza.

I like this double IPA. Light brown coloured and unclear. Has a white head, medium duration. Heavy hoppy aroma, citrus, crisp, fruits, mango, moderate malty too. Flavor is starting moderate sweet and finish heavy bitter, more herbal hoppy notes. Dry texture and lively carbonation. Zita (6331) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2012
