UPDATED: OCT 3, 2016 Really good, one of my favourite British IPAs. Very juicy mouth feel, lovely tropical passion fruit, apricot and peach fruity hop bitterness, with a bit of light caramel sweetness. Refreshing and very drinkable, defo one to buy again. Awesome beer !!

500ML Bottle .In a Shaker Pint . Im surprised not to have rated this , certain Ive drunk it before and I could say that about many beers . Nose of fresh citrus emphasis , wood , pine , musty aftershave and light maltiness . Two fingers of foam like when Rich scratches his ass with his fingers in the welfare line ...bright pale ale kinda colour . A pretty intense hoppy APA - assertive hops and a kiss of caramel backdrop . Good long fruity grapefruit zest bitterness lingers nicely ...Its pretty Xsolid ,

kwik-lime (1861) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Floral aroma. A little spice but somewhat resiny and I wouldnt call it powerfully hopped as per the bottle. A decent, but fairly generic, beer.

JorisPPattyn (9881) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
Small irregular yellowish head over clear golden beer, medium carbonated. Very flowery, delicate hoparomas during pouring. Once the head in place, hardly any aromas detectable, apart form some sweet malt. Bitter, bit metallic, herbal and spicy hops. Hint of caramel underneath. Metallic bitterness keeps hanging around. Light, finally rather low on carbonation. Not unlikeable. Lots of flavour from just enough ABV. Keeps the perfect middle between the classical UK familybrewers products and the endeavours of the smaller craftbrewers. The art and skill of Roger Ryman, I presume?

TomBitter (13) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Cooper colour with bold floral, citrus aromas with a slight hint of spiciness. The flavour is bitter with a little citrus coming through but its all marred by the metallic taste which overpowers any of the good flavours that are in the brew. Leaves the palate with a dry metallic bitterness which isnt pleasant. Should have just stuck to the smell.

ozzatoadisback (145) - ITALY - AUG 24, 2016
Dark golden, transparent, average head, decent persistence, scarce lacing. Weak aroma shows resinous and citric notes. Taste has a very light malt base, resinous hops are dominant with some not too vivid notes of grapefruit and citrus. A bit musty. Low sweetness, bitterness is dominant in both taste and aftertaste. Light to medium body, mouthfeel is nor too vivid nor refreshing despite quite high crispness, feels slightly muddy instead. Not intense, nor well made

A gift from Oliver. Light, bronze towards yellow, little foam. Metallic meaty aroma. Taste of toffee, metal with strong metallic hoppy aftertaste.

Very hoppy brew pours golden from the bottle with little or no head. No after taste I found it to have a delicate fruity taste as well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
