Leighton (20825) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle at home in London. Pours a clear, rich amber with a fluffy, white head. Aroma is full pine, grapefruit and orange citrus, fresh grass. Flavor is about as good as it gets. Fully realized, strong malt foundation, some honey and sugar, quite bitter, thick and juicy citrus and resinous pine. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Finishes sticky with hops and beautifully balanced. There is a touch of warmth but otherwise the alcohol only gives this beer body; you hardly know its there. Some lingering pine, toasty malt sweetness, hints of wood and grass. This is one of the best IPAs I have ever had.

tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2016
Bottle, home, EeBria mixed case. White lacing. Orange colour. London murky. US 05 yeast. Huge Amarillo dry-hopping. Loads of succulent papaya fruits, oranges, clementines, dry and a long finish. Utterly excellent beer. Great showcase of one of my favourite hops! Drink fresh or go home!

fkoolen (1159) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle at home, 6,5% Nicely cloudy, murky yellow colour with a creamy white head that nicely laces the beer. Citrus fruity, grassy, piny, beautifully crisp bitterness with a slightly sticky mouthfeel, nicely malted. Bitter finish, fruity, grassy, even earthy aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation.

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Draught @ The Craft Beer Co (Covent Garden), London. Pours a hazy cloudy golden colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of fresh citrus, strong pungent weed and some graininess. Flavour of crisp juicy citrus, herbal bitterness, dank hoppiness, weed, some graininess, gooseberries and orange pith. Juicy. Dank af.

Beese (2607) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle at Powder Keg Diplomacy, Battersea on 5 July. Poured a hazy amber colour, with a dense white head and excellent lacing. Full aroma of pine needles, citrus and just cut grass - in other words; a ton of hops! Lots of fruity hop flavours; orange, grapefruit, lemon zest, mixed with some caramel and grain. Finish was perfect lingering spruce and resin bitterness, balanced wonderfully wish biscuity malt and honey.

skortila (5734) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
Bottled. Small sample @ Derat, Utrecht. The aroma has beautiful citrus, light pine, some grass. Clear, golden coloured beer with a nice, white, medium head. The taste is dry, clean, moderate bitter and has citrus. Very refreshing. Great stuff.

Quite a sweet IPA in comparison to others from kernel. The hops taste of orange and mango. Very smooth and drinkable.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Keg, The Lincolnshire Poacher, Nottingham, 11/04/14. Dusted orange gold with a brief suggestion of head. Call me a Luddite but keg never matches cask. That minor grumble aside this is a beauty and easily the best beer of the day; dragon fruit and guava armpit hop without heat; gentle carb and husk backdrop. Kumquat and white pear. Sweaty, cheesy perfumed cat and armpit aroma. Yessir.

BeerViking (4618) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Cloudy dark gold with a thin head and aromas of pineapple and orange. Full bodied and pineappley, hints of wintergreen and rosemary, gorgeous!
