Nose is mango, some citrus. Taste is lightly hoppy, lemon balm slight mango, grassy, slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel is appropriate. It’s drinkable, but not hoppy enough for an American style IPA but slightly to hoppy for an old school English IPA.

500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of hops with malt. Bitter taste and finish. Nice stuff.

Bijl (683) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2017
Goudgeel, witte schuimkraag, iets wazig, wat drijvende deeltjes Gist, weinig koolzuur. Aroma: Fruitig en licht tropisch, Citrus, grapefruit, pijnboom en moutig. Geen hopbom maar alles vrij subtiel. Smaak: Prima zoetige mouten als basis, brood/biscuit, goed gehopt... aroma verbloemde het een beetje maar flink pijnboom/hars en netelig. Tropisch... grapefruit en Citrus, iet scherp als citroenschil en wat kruidig. Iets aarde/mossig en houtachtig....echt goed gehopt en grassig bitter. Nog wat fruitigheid van de gist en iets floraal bloemig. Indeed a Proper Job. Medium body, redelijk koolzuur, grassig en bittere afdronk....vrij droog. Ik vind hem goed!

Aromat cytrusowy, lekko zywiczny, mango. Barwa ciemnozlota klarowna - przywodzi na mysl Ipe z zachodnich stanów. W smaku glównie silna grejpfrutowa goryczka oraz owoce tropikalne w tym mango. To jeden z najmocniejszych punktów tego piwa, jest naprawde owocowo, lekko zywicznie, karmelu jest niewiele. Cialo relatywnie niewielkie, wysycenie srednie, goryczka przyjemnie zalega, nie jest mega agresywna. Bardzo przyjemna IPA, na opakowaniu nie podano konkretnej odmiany stylu ale stawialbym, ze to West Coast.

Nothing too exciting on pour and appearance but taste makes up for it in spades. Incredible flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Packaging is deceiving this is waaay more american then is looks. There are the fruity Cascade hops with mixed with the dry pine resin of chinook. Very nice fresh ale.

Pours translucent apricot wit a serviceable eggshell head. Aroma features citrus and fresh hop notes. Flavor delivers piney hops, citrus and fresh malt. Mouthfeel presents OK body and peppy fizz. Get your Cornish on.

500 ml bottle @home,bb 04/2018. Golden,clear,albeit lots of fairly big sediment particles,strange. Aroma of hops and citrus. Hoppy,bitter taste. Too bitter for me.

Dbcwi88 (19) - Loughton, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2017
Orange peel and malt on nose. Strong hop bitterness again orange peel notes. Nice, but just about as bitter as an English ipa can get

vlada94 (190) - Nis, SERBIA - JUN 27, 2017
Clear golden colour with medium white head, aroma of hops, really herbal , taste is hoppy , really bitter , orange peel , medium carbonated , a classic english IPA.
