Many people enjoy this IPA because of its bold hop aroma and flavor while it still finishes clean. It’s a great companion with a meal or a bull session with friends. It is unfiltered and dry-hopped to give you the full blast of the Gale Force. Hops: UK East Kent Goldings, Cascade and Columbus.

355ml bottle. Gold pour. Aroma is orange and malt, smells terrible. Flavor is vegetal and sweet, poor stuff.
Post tasting thoughts:
This has a qc issue, terrible stuff.
Bomber from Total Wine, Gainesville. Pours hazy golden with a large beige head. Lots of carbonation in this one. Aroma of lemon zest, and grapefruit peel. Flavor is lemony toasted bread. Kinda bland, but not bad in any way. Grapefruit peel lingering finish. Letshaveatry (12) - Menai Bridge, WALES - NOV 25, 2016
330ml bottle, 5.25%. Aroma slight hops, caramel also. golden amber, almost orange, long lasting off white small head. Taste, lets it down, slight sourness, moving to bready bitterness, with lively carbonation, aftertaste slightly unpleasant Braudog (6712) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle. Rustic and ruddy, this is burnt-orange with a big, defensive head. It’s got quite the Anglophile aroma, woodsy, gritty. It drinks the same, yet somehow light in body. (#6402, 11/18/2016)

5.25% ABV bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy golden with a thin white head. It has a citrus and peppery hop flavour followed by a malty, toffee and grapefruit finish. Pretty good. tricksta_p (4650) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is pale biscuity malt, herbal hops, citrus peel, orange, mild pine, hint of caramel, soft herbal notes with a touch of earthy leafs. Flavour is moderate sweet with a bitter finish that turns a bit harsh. Body is medium. Very different IPA, malty and herbal-ish with a harsh bitterness. Hardly great, but likeable.

Bottle @home (Euro-vision 2016 tasting.) Pours amber/golden off white head. Nose and taste the same floral, resin and grapefruit AgentAle (1745) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2016
Aroma is roasted sweet malts, light rye spice and a funky earthiness. Taste is sweet malts with hints of honey, clove,citrus and funk. Pretty well balanced overall but slight tang on tip. Appearance is gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
