A very nice beer from one of my favourite breweries, just a shame its so far away and this beer is hard to find outside the brewery. A very drinkable double IPA with a heafty kick.

Luneylane (176) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - JUN 13, 2017
A bottle from the Beer Cellar, Truro, drunk here in Taipei. Aroma: citrus fruits. Appearance: clear amber, no head. Palate: medium-bodied and thin, soft carbonation, very astringent at the finish. Taste: medium bitter, some saltiness. Not my favourite style, too astringent, but I do appreciate the nice hefty booze kick.

vinivini (2243) - Gomel, BELARUS - JUN 7, 2017
Bottle. Foggy deep golden colour. Small off-white head. Nose: tropical and floral hops. Medium body. Dry flavour. Grassy and fruity hops. Good in the English way.

SarkyNorthener (4565) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2017
Bottle from Morrisons, walsall. Golden amber beer with large head. Aroma of passion fruit and peach. Taste is light peach, some light resin and some hop bitterness. Decent.

Bottle, from Morrissons. Pours golden, clear, barely perceptible haze. Wonderful fruity, citrusy, slightly musty (in a good way) hoppy aroma. Clean crisp and dry, bitter, malt comes through nicely. Wonderful beer, one of the best Ive had for a while. More balanced than many double IPAs - heavily hopped, but not absurdly or overpoweringly so.

BlackHaddock (7232) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2017
500ml bottle: BBD in 5 days. Poured into a Gwaun Brewery badged pint sleeve at home on 25th May 2017. Clear golden pour, white bubbley crown. Citrus notes greet your nose as the head swiftly buggers off. Malty esters try and knock the citrusy aroma to the background, almost made it. Taste is also citrusy and fairly hop bitter, again the malts fail to equal or overpower the hop content. Decent, but too citrusy for me, liked the alcohol mini-buzz: scored objectively. I have another bottle of this, it is going to be blended with a pint of my own exceedingly malty home brew and I am expecting to have a beer that my sweet tooth will really like.

Bottle from morrisons more an ipa than a dipa with the abv drop gold slight haze initial alcohol cane sugar opens up a bit floral some mango good for a supermarket pickup.

ALIBALI (1989) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2017
Da kitzelt ein zitrusspritziger Harzer die aufgeregten Hopheadlappen. A Malty Waltz with all the spicey Moves ✨👽.0,5l Buddel im STRONGBOWS Kiel.

3.5
colui72 (986) - HONG KONG - APR 13, 2017
Clear golden-amber, medium white head and not much lacing. Aroma is floral, peach and citrus. Clean and crisp to the palat, light bodied with a gentle carbonation. Weak on the malty side (a bit pale lagerish...) but good balance of hops with citrus, mango and peach overall. Decent, but not memorable.

3.4
drmet (952) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - APR 12, 2017
L: -pours a clear golden-orange with a small to medium,offwhite head -low to medium carbonation visible S: -grapefruit,oranges,tangerines,grassy the nose plus honey -noticeably watery throughout the finish -low to medium bitterniss for the style F: -medium carbonation -light to medium body O: I drank this 2 weeks past its best-by date, so i give it a bit of leeway. This is mildly decent overall, though a bit underwhelming.
