victorsampson96 (56) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Deep, clear copper-red beer, with creamy white head. Fairly thick, with moderate carbonation. Strong caramel and grapefruit aroma, slightly floral, with a dry finish: pinewood, resin, faint burnt toast, and a lingering spicines. Rather in-your-face, but not at all bad.

MrTipple (4321) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2014
Aroma: light flowers and resin, light honey. Appearance: hazy, pale gold, hardly any head. Taste: medium sweet, Palate: fizzy carbonation, heavy bitters coming back after initial sweets, intense hips. Overall: not my favourite IIPA, somewhat bland, not complex enough. Pint at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a murky medium amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is citrus fruit, grassy hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a gorgeous smooth woody ligjht resin nettle hop palate and a long bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lots going on here with plenty of flavours.

danlo (2936) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
500ml bottle. Deep orange-brown amber colour, foamy off-white head and aroma of caramel, orange marmalade, spice. Taste is sweetish, malt caramel, tangy with fruity grapefruit and woody pine hop bitterness. Medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, warming boozy, dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable DIPA.

Beersiveknown (5205) - NORTHERN IRELAND - APR 3, 2014
Bottle at home from ales by mail
dark amber, pillowy beoge head colapses to a lacing. Hot and heavy, sticky malt, pithy bitterness but lacking flavour and aroma (at end of BBE range). Light carbonatio but v full bodied. A struggle

Sigmund (7228) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
500 ml bottle conditioned, a gift from my beerpal Olav. Orange colour with floaties, hardly any head. Strong spicy (weird) and hoppy aroma, also notes of red wine vinegar. Nearly void of carbonation. The flavour has an unpleasant peppery and hoppy bitterness, and not much else. In other words: A fucked up bottle. Drainpour.

jamesie1857 (2016) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Keg at SIBA BeerX - Rich red body, foamy white top. Big citrus nose, grapefruit and tart lemons, expecting a big hop taste which you get. Smooth bitter-sweet grapefruit again, after taste of kumquat and tangerine. Very nice and deceptively dangerous!
