Bomber. Pours a brown red with a beige head and aroma of toffee and caramel. Taste is of malt, toffee, caramel, and rye bread notes with a malty finish. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Great big rye flavor which i really enjoy. Lower alcohol really brings out the fresh hop flavors and a really good profile. Very enjoyable but a little slow drinking. suprchunk (2994) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Dark amber. Small off white head. No lacing. Strong peppery mosaic nose. Taste is the same. A little off. ElCapitan22 (363) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Pours a nice amber red color with decent lacing, but no real head retention. Smells like rye and malt with a taste that pretty much matches it. Has a taste similar to a sweet tea and dark roasted malt. A nice beer, but not a great one. mR_fr0g (12579) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Can shared at Leighton’s pad. Many thanks for this one. Reddy / amber coloured pour with a halo of off white head. Aroma is big rye bread, spicy rye, a little sweet berry, lemon. Flavour is composed of semi-sweet toffee, wye bread, light toasted grains, pine and citrus fruits. Palate is semi-sweet, moderate carbonation, little sticky. Decent malt / hop balance.

This IPA poured a beautiful dark amber colour with a quick living, frothy, tan coloured head. Scents include a sharp, grassy hop, malt and citrus. First swig was very flavourful with strong citrus/grass hop flavour. Medium to light mouthfeel and a grapefruit finish. Scopey (14992) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
