Very nice bottle design. Pours hazy pale yellow with small fine head. Citrus and lots of tropical fruit in the nose. Starts with lots of aroma hops, aroma of tropical fruit, really lots of tropical fruit, hehe. Middle part has citrus and grapefruit as well as some herbs. Goes into a hoppy bitter finish with lots of tropical fruits and some pine wood. Awesome stuff, maaaan!

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.

javiercrasher (641) - Granada, SPAIN - SEP 17, 2017
De perfil herbal con algo de cítricos y resina. Bastante suave y equilibrada, con final ligeramente amargo. NO la catalogaría como Imperial IPA. De lo mejor de esta cervecera. Muy buena. BB 25/05/2018.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with medium white head. Aroma has lots of citrus fruits, very lemony and orangey, with a solid bready backbone. Taste follows the nose, lemon, lime, orange, tangerine and biscuit are very predominant. Moderate bitter ending to it.
