CacheManyHose (749) - HONG KONG - AUG 2, 2016
Drank at Boom Art Cafe. Slightly fermented fruit malt, light dark fruit, medium bitterness. More hop in the taste than the nose. Body is bitter, fizzy effervescent carbonation, fruity dry slightly sharp finish. Perhaps not enough hop to balance the malt flavours (dry pale malt, somewhat too sharp), esp. for an IPA.

3.6
DraftDodger (1626) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 30, 2016
Copenhagen 29/4 2016. 33 cl bottle from Barley Wine. Roaring Saberttooth tiger om the label. A bit too old (BB end of January). Pours hazy copper brown with big yellowish head. Settles as creamy crown of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Sweetish aroma of fermented exotic fruit with notes of orange and grape fruit providing a little balance. Soft carbonation and thick oily palate. Taste has sweetness but is overpowered by quite prominent hoppy bitterness which dominates the aftertaste. Tasty IPA which does not save on the hops unnecessarily.

Hartoloni (243) - - NOV 23, 2015
Pours dark cloudy amber with light head. Aroma is of hops and soft fruit. Taste is hoppy, orange peel, moving to a bitter toffee/coffee after taste. Not bad.

Maarten1993 (1334) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2015
Drank with Timon at home 27-10-2015 (bottle best before 31-07-15, whoops..). Nice beer, but too ordinary, too flat.

3.5
teorn88 (7682) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 19, 2015
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle form Utobeer, London. It pours a clean golden color with good carbonation. Aroma is mostly resiny and lightly sweet, with some citrus ad grass. Taste has more stone fruit, melon, caramel and grass. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, good but a tad sweet

3.7
zacgillbanks (5362) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy dark amber coloured with tropical fruit and a slight tart fruity flavour followed by toffee, biscuit and citrus finish.

3.2
Towey1989 (3048) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2015
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A slightly hazy amber colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of caramel, resin, grapefruit, orange and some peach. Taste of caramel, resin, spicy orange, grapefruit, some peach, slight brown sugar and floral hops in the background. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A bittersweet, grapefruit bitterness in the finish with some caramel sweetness. I agree with most people that it’s a little sweet for an IPA, more like a strong amber ale. Nice flavours though.
