rubbishystuff (2537) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2010
This was the Green Hopped 2009 Harvest. Very tasty. Strong hop flavors. One of the more floral hop tasting IPAs I’ve had. Cloudy and a touch sweet. Well done. Serving: Bottle

BeerViking (5133) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2017
Bottle, pours bright gold with a lacing head and aromas of pineapple, lemon and a little honey and pine. Dry-sweet, with drying alcohol and hops, a herbal bitterness and a fruity-sweet overtone.

AssKicker (721) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - DEC 18, 2017
Couleur dorée voilée, mousse correcte mais peu véloce sur la durée. Au nez ça sent le rond avec une dominante maltée allant sur le caramel et la peau d'orange. En bouche l'amertume frappe d'entrée de jeu, et ensuite ça paraît pas mal sec. L'amertume est également bien présente. Niveau houblonnage, c'est au taquet sur le résineux. Couplé avec le côté sec, ça donne un rendu particulièrement abrupte et peu commun pour le style Imperial IPA. Autant pour une IPA je dirais OK, mais là pour une Imperial, ça me dérange...

Cimbasso (1058) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2017
Bottle from Waitrose. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Hoppy aroma and a good bitter taste of lime, grapefruit, pineapple and pine needles. A good citrussy APA with lots of character and and a good balance, better than many examples of this style.

Mad Dog Martin (150) - - NOV 25, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 Supermarket bottle. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Grapefruit and orange aroma continues in the taste then the pine kicks in. Nice IPA.

rodsquad (380) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2017
Bottle from JK Fine Foods. It’s hazy light and yellow gold in colour. It has a fantastic fluffy white head. The aromas are fruity like orange juice with a light touch of peach. Then comes a little fudge and mild earth quality. When it comes to the tasing the light fruitiness is quickly overtaken by a dry herbal wave. It’s fresh medium bodied with a refreshing sharp sparkle. It’s all so drinkable. A superb refreshingly clean big IPA that tricks you with an abv that’s slowly builds from the dry herbal warmth as you travel down the glass. Super stuff from Thornbridge.
