Bottle at the Euston Tap, London. Poured a hazy blood orange with the most incredible Simcoe-led piney hop aroma rising out of the glass. Taste follows the appearance and heady aroma in being an almost viscous powerhouse of bitterness and sweet caramel backbone. This beer is no longer revolutionary, but a few years it could have been. I will gladly drink it though knowing I can gave it as fresh as can be thanks to it being local. If you like heady hops and lots of them on your tongue, give this one a whirl.

From notes. Clear, orange color and a thick white head. Orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, pine in the aroma. Light bodied, smooth, almost oily. Good one. johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy yellow appearance that was a bit off putting. Small head and very Vitter. Hops and citrus are also present. Too bitter for my own personal taste but still very nice.

Thick white head. Hazy orange pour. Lovely smooth bitterness. A great brew. wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2013
Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Hazy orange pour with a smallish white crown. Pungent hop aroma with notes of tropical fruits, cat pee and spice. The hops and fruit were served up again in spades flavour-wise. Typically cracking balance. Mouth coating bitterness. Can’t fault this, a winning kick-bottom collaboration. juanenka (267) - valladolid, SPAIN - MAR 22, 2013

Oct 2012 - bottle, cold. Very nice IPA. One of the best ones I’ve tried. Foretaste is rich caramel, bitterness is marked but not overpowering. A bit floral (which is one of the aspects of IPA I don’t like so much). Good sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2013
