(Bottle) Clear deep amber with slight white head. Excellent hoppy aroma - pine citrus with some candy notes. Medium body with excellent carbonation. Some dark toffee sweetness at the start, with pine notes appearing and developing into a good hoppy bitter finish. Nice DIPA.

Nice beer, sticky taste, crystal clear amber in colour. A bit of smokiness/roastiness in the aftertaste. Very enjoyable.

RichardGretton (4712) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2015
Bottle. Bronzy brown beer with a strong off white head. The aroma is well hopped and gently roasted, and the flavour is deeply bitter with a degree of richness and a lot of roastedness. Overall a nice strong IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sehr feine Geschichte mit angenehmer Hopfennote und fruchtigen Momenten. Sehr sffig, ausgewogene Bitterkeit und Perlung. Nicht schlecht.

Bottle from minutemat, many thanks. The beer has got a hazy golden-amber colour with a small head and smooth body. Aroma of hops and spruce. Taste of fresh hops, amlt, pine, herbs, exotic fruits, orange zest and flowers. Dry-hoppy finish. Good one.

AshtonMcCobb (6067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2015
Bottle from Saucy Pears. Appearance - beautiful amber with an attractive fluffy head. Nose - orange and hinting of pineapple. Slight funky edge, very yeasty. Taste - orangey yoghurt. Then it finishes with a tangy orange note. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - solid but not sure there should be this much yeast influence.
