tommann (3484) - Dudley, West Midlands, - NOV 17, 2012
355ml bottle. Pours dark gold with a medium, frothy head. Aroma is sweet, with pineapple and bread. Taste is sweet, a little pineapple, some astringency. Another boring new beer.

Antzrhere (116) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Pours golden orange. Not much aroma. Taste is more malty than hoppy. Quite a full bodied malty profile with delicate background citrus floral hops. Quite disappointing for an IPA, too light on hop flavour

BarleyBrain (5) - blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2016 does not count
Aroma: very malty, not so much hop aroma although it is present. Just. Appearance: nice amber colour. Decent carbonation. Off white head, not too bad at sticking around. Some lacing present. Flavour: it is a generic classic IPA taste, very malty with a good bitterness, but with a very spicy hop taste, they dont jump out as any particular hop but they taste nice. There is no unusual flavours Palate: very sharp carbonation but after that its a decent bodied beer. Could be less carbonated though. For £1.25 a bottle (355ml) and 6.3% this is a decent beer! Of course it wont stand up to big tropical ipa’s but this has a good character to it for when you want a different taste to your ipa’s than what every craft brewery is doing with ipa’s

Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Honeyed gold, clear with a tiny head. Honey and some gluey malt I the aroma. Tastes better than I’d thought it would: bittersweet with tropical fruit notes, turning exceptionally bitter. Harsh acidic note in the the short to medium finish, not a lot on the aftertaste. Drinkable although not all that.

Heidbummer (355) - SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2016
This is not an IPA. American pale maybe. It’s a generic ale really. Minimal aroma (hint of citrus and some malt). For the abv it’s thin. Tastes like they used hop concentrate not hops - has that metallic sweetness which characterises mass brewed "craft" beers. It’s OK but compared to Tesco’s finest beers this is poor.

Bottle at home. Pours clear amber colour. Fairy mild tasting IPA. Light caramel malty with some citrus and hop bite. Easy drinking.

Ktwse (4240) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Pours cloudy orange with low white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, light citrus. Taste is light caramel sweet with a mild bitter finish. Body is too light and smooth with average carbonation.

jasonbenali (163) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2016
Pours clear copper with mild carbonation. Aroma is restrained. Marmelade, tangerine, caramel, peach and touch of soap. Taste delivers more than the aroma. Nice sweetness, mild bitterness and medium finish. Not bad and certainly good value.

A very nice beer, full of flavour. Strong but not overbearing. Great value and stands up well against Punk IPA, which is another favourite of mine.
