AssKicker (431) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 17, 2017
Couleur dore, bien limpide, avec une mousse qui fini assez rapidement sur un col en pourtour de verre. Nez sur une dominante de pulpe de citron. Forte prsence dagrumes en bouche, la fois sur le zeste de citron et la mandarine avec une bonne amertume en fin de bouche qui reste pas mal. Les grains se font sentir en toute fin de bouche avec de lgres notes de crales et de caramel. Une bonne IPA langlaise qui est simple mais efficace.

Davros IX (303) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2017
2016 catch up - A good beer, but very lively and overall very yeasty. A strong kick of bitter and fruity hops and a thick mouth feel with a level of creaminess.

Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - APR 19, 2017
Classica english IPA. Amaro che si sente e permane nel retrogusto. Pulita, tranquilla, non si fa particolarmente ricordare, ma disseta e da discrete soddisfazioni.

lokis333 (478) - Birai, LITHUANIA - APR 16, 2017
Clear gold color with minimum white foam. Aromas of sweet fruity hops such as grapefruit and orange. Palate, light body with thin body leaving dry finish. Taste, sweet-ish of hops, grapefruit and orange peel with touch of lager malt. Overall, okay, not bad, better than expected. Still fairly simple but has hop character to it.
