KajII (801) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2012
12oz Can. The pour was a clear copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white bubbly head that reduced down to a thin puddled film and small collar with excellent sticky sheets of lacing. The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, citrus (grapefruit) and a light tropical fruitiness (pineapple I believe). The taste was lightly malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a mild fruitiness from the start, becoming nice and hoppy with dose of citrus, a hint of toffee and a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted for a good long time following the swallow, with a slightly sweet bitter hoppy taste that was left to linger for a while longer. Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with an exceptionally dry texture and a carbonation that was a little more than mild. Overall this was a decent enough IPA with a good strong bitterness along with a touch of fruit and mild sweetness, making this a nice and easy to drink brew...

Good IPA with a great history. Taste is strong but still desirable. I find myself enjoying this IPA outside on a cooler day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ManVsBeer (11102) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2017
Can from Booths Supermarket, Media City. Golden-amber with a small head. Has a full-bodied full fruity tropical fruitiness, but with a clear strength about it. It's citrus based but a palatable one with a lowish citric bitterness. Has plenty of nose.

simontomlinson (673) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2017
Creamy beige head stayed on a hazy caramel coloured body. Bitter, hoppy aroma. Medium to full bodied. Creamy on the palate & prickly on the back. Cloying. Well balanced with a malty fore followed quickly by a bitter, tangy, hoppy kick with plenty of pith, grapefruit, pine & citrus hints

355 ml can. Deep golden-orange. Nice white head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach, caramel and spruce. Very smooth. In tast American hops of spruce, grapefruit and citrus fruit meet sweet caramel and flavorful honey. Tasteful, aromatic. Excellent balance. Both mild and powerful.
