Bottle from Coppers in Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with sweet tropical juicy fruit flavours and a sharp, slight woody bitter finish. WeissGary (290) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2013
Pours a lovely golden orange with a thin white head. Nice dry hopped American style IPA which dominates the aroma and pursues the taste throughout the smooth drinking experience up front which develops into a dry finish. A really enjoyable beer that really gets the American IPA style right (and at a good price!). Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2012
Bottle from Appellation. Pours a light golden colour with a fair white head. Interesting citric aroma with grapefruit, lemon and tangerines. Similar flavours and quite bitter with lingering grapefruit and tangerines again. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice. RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2012
330ml bottle, Coppers, Ncl. Love the caramel aroma coming from the big hops, lures you into a bit of a false sense of security. I expected a really soft creamy palate, which you just get on the front of the tongue, but, at the back, there’s a really tangy, sharp, refreshing bitterness, with almost acidic citrus late on. Poured with a thin, clean white head and a really nice gold appearance. Another cracker. DanielBrown (4563) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Smells particularly yummy - sweet, fruity hops. It’s rather dry. Finish is rather dry. Apart from the Arabian peninsular-style finish, it’s a refreshing pale ale.

Bottle at home. Hazy orange amber, thick rocky white head fades to a thin film. Pungent, resinous juicy tropical fruits on the nose - passion fruit, citrus, pineapple, gooseberry. Nice pithy dry palate, slightly herbal, lots of bitter grapefruit, puckeringly dry finish. Tasty. cgarvieuk (26365) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2012

Bottle shared at the Earl of Essex, London, pre-Zwanze release. Pours cloudy yellow with a HUGE, white foam head. Big brett-esque aroma, some straw, lemon and poop. Light to medium sweet flavor with big poo character, lemony plastic, grass. Light to medium bodied with mouth-filling, massaging carbonation. Dry finish with some lemon rind. There is lots of brett and farmyard character here, but I’m not sure it’s intentional. This beer is more like a saison than an APA. Very nice, but, yeah.
