Leighton (19833) - London, Greater London, - FEB 13, 2013
Keg at The Pony Bar UES, NYC. Pours clear gold with a small, white foam head. Lovely aroma with good urine notes, orange and other citrus, background pine. Medium to big sweet flavor with some spicy pine notes, a bit more pee, some gritty earth and grass, orange and grapefruit. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with continued pee, sturdy citrus fruits, resinous pine, palate-kicking earth, mild pale malts and bread. Great stuff. Well balanced. Exceptionally drinkable.

brontebeach (184) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Double IPA in bottle. ABV given as 8.2 not 8.6. A good example, on the sweet side, smooth, nicely balanced but nothing distinctive to take it to the most memorable category.

Handypaul (482) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle. Pours hazy dark orange-brown with very fine suspended sediment and a one-finger, white, creamy, mostly lasting, head that leaves fair lacing. Big aroma of pine and sweet citrus. Hop forward with medium bitterness that grows through the finish, medium body, sticky mouthfeel, average carbo initially that diminishes quickly to soft, flavors of grapefruit and caramel. Pretty good but balance is weighted to the hoppy/bitter side.

mcberko (16021) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2016
On tap at Augurs Well, pours an opaque cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out tropical fruits upfront, with a little resin and piney quality. Flavour is dry and rather spicy in the hop department, with a great piney and resinous hop quality. Very dry finish, with little residual sweetness. A little too sweet but still well-done.

Draft at Bierstube. Hazy gold pour. Soapy off-white foam. No lace. Broad wet dank tropical hops. Forest floor. Guava. Mandarin. Pineapple. Cantaloupe. Tastes exactly like a canned fruit salad mixed with pine needles but still not so bad!
