McDreamy (24) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2007
Bottle conditioned. Clear golden orange. With small vanishing head. Aroma citrus and unfortunately some metal also. Bitter, sharp citric hoppiness (36 EBU) and again small metallic hint. Nice and smooth palate. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 29, 2007
courtesy of oh6gdx - hazy golden-orange colour, little white foam with a correct lacing; solid aromatic hoppiness with notes of apricot and cream; very creamy mouthfeel, medium-bodied; a fair bitterness with a light sourness; short fruity and bitter hoppy finish BigBen2120 (687) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - APR 26, 2007
16.9oz bottle from A-1 to-go in Gardiner. Hazy yellow-orange body with a thin off-white head. Smells citrussy and herbal, no skunk to be found. Tastes like caramel malt and earthy, citrussy and herbal and a tad smoky. Hoppy but not overwhelming. A pleasing medium bodied, drinkable English IPA. joe19612 (3074) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2007
Bottle conditioned. Lovely orange colour with a thin white head . Good hoppy aroma with some citrus. Nice and dry with good strong citrus flavor; hops nicely balenced with sweet malt. Very good. Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2007
a good english IPA, I call English IPA’s the base at which the americans ran, ..... anyways, the aroma lacks, sweet hops on the finish... this is a solid English style, the flat mild hoppy beer, good and traditional...

Cask gravity at London Drinker BF 07. Gold colour, haze. Sherberty hop aroma. OK malt in mouth and then the biggest attack of hop I think I’ve ever had in a UK beer. Really hits you. Unusual to have such a citric hop finish. Aarghhhh. Crazy hop. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2007
A Mes rate:
Cask at London Drinker. Amber coloured, slight haze, thin head. Toffee and dusty hop aroma. More of the same in the flavour but with a nice extra lick of hops and a bitter finish. Lovely palate. Straight forward but very drinkable and enjoyable. spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAR 29, 2007
(Bottle BB 02/01/08) Citrus fruity, malty and toffee aroma. Golden colour, slightly hazy (tiny particles), small sedimentation in the bottle and small, white, more or less fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Citrus fruity, slightly bitter and toffee flavour. Lively carbonated, dry and medium-bodied palate. Crispy beer, which has a bit too sharp aroma/flavour of citrus. 04/03/07 Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2007
Coppery colored, cloudy appearance. Medium sized yellow head. Lemon, toffee and some flowers in aroma, I don’t know but some Finnish Plevna beers come to mind... Fine aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is more dry with biting hops and grassy-flowery side, lemon comes up in aftertaste with slight licorice. Dry but somehow soapy aftertaste. Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2007
0.5 l bottle. Amber color with small head. Sweetish aroma with caramelly and resiny hops, biscuity maltiness, esters with exotic fruits and perhaps some sulphur. Sweetish and malty flavor with some caramel, rich herbal-fruity hop flavor and some metallic taste. Fairly strong fruity esters as well. Oily and butterly palate with soft carbonation. Fairly good ESB.
