Citrus dominated IPA with a slight astringency in the first sip that warns you of whats about to come and an enduring bitter finish (IBUs 65). Back end taste and aromas of tropical fruits from the New Zealand Kohatu hops with Dana hops giving the sensation of being smacked in the mouth with a jar of marmalade. kinda like Bob Dylan on acid.
Malt: Maris Otter Pale, Crystal Malt & Bamberg Cara Aroma

rosenbergh (11283) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 4, 2014
330 ml bottle. L13168. BB 06/14. From
Came out of the bottle like a Vauxhall... or even quicker. Clear deep golden colour with a small white head. Homebrew yeast and hops in the aroma. A mess of yeast, sweet malt, biscuits and some hops. The flavour is a bit more enjoyable but still theres quite a lot homebrew vibes there. Mild bitterness, sweet malt, biscuits and some hops there. So far I havent had a pleasant experience from Sunny Republic. Maybe some day...

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Cask; gold, clear, thin white head; tropical fruit aroma; tastes smooth, some soft citrus - lemon, lime; moderate bitterness; prickly hops; this was a grower: a third of a pint in and Id written it off as one-dimensional with a challenging hoppiness, but it opened out into something supple, mellifluous and moreish; more good, interesting stuff from an ever dependable brewery.

EdKing (2510) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Cask pint in the Lyric. Colour is chestnut brown to amber with a medium white foam cask beer head. Nose is fruity, soft ripe fruit, Vimto, grain malt, tropical fruit, mango and orange. taste is really soft ripe mushy tropical and citrous fruit with some musty grain and slightly fermented fruit. Its quite sweet and thick on the taste. Not entirely sure about it.

Idiosynkrasie (7102) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Cautious citrusy and slightly soapy hop aroma, hints of orange zest, a touch of overripe tropical fruit, juniper, some biscuit. Taste is bitter hoppy, more herbal than fruity, some juniper. Monotonous, no kick from the (rarely aromatic) hops - bad and boring IPA.

McTapps (6726) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a amber colour with low head and medium body. Nice aroma of hops and nuts. Taste of fresh but mild hops, nuts, pepper, herbs, oranges and thyme. Light body and light texture but nice anyway. Easy drink- and enjoyable.

MichaelAwesome (6501) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Well, a bit watery and thun, but quite good work. Some hops mixed up with straw, hay and even sweetish caramel. Crazily deep with that low abv.

kermis (12398) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuity malt, light weedy and citrus hops. Flavour is light moderate sweet and light bitter. Missing any real hop character. Light bodied with light carbonation.
