Maris (1425) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2016
From a 355ml bottle on 1/9/2016. Pours a clear light golden with a small head. The nose features lots of caramel malt with some pine. The taste is dominated by more caramel malt and some biscuit too, a good dose of sweet fruit, some honey, with some reasonably firm hops balancing things out (the dry hopping is evident). Quite light bodied with average carbonation. This is a slightly unusual, very malt forward IPA, but I really enjoyed it. Dont get why this is so lowly rated on here.

BeardedAvenger (436) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
On tap at Rose & Thistle, Frimley Green. Pleasant aroma - floral, grassy, sweeter than expected. Deep gold. Loses points for a weak head. Initially sweet before the hops come through. Medium bodied and smooth. Bitter long finish, which is slightly chalky. Grapefruit, with honey or similar underneath. I enjoy.

thepatrickman (1067) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Simple, straightforward APA -- it reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada, with its moderately-light Cascade hop flavor.
