A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Pours a surprisingly pale straw with a modest, medium bubble head that didn’t last long. Aroma is of lemons and resin. Drinks very dry & a little oily, with a bold slug of lemons and piney resin. Lingering parching dryness and lemony bitter, I don’t enjoy it much

explosivedog (1421) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 25, 2017
On tap at Brewers Cooperative. Pours sickly pale. Elderflower, orange juice, touch of earthy pepper, some bitter orange. Little sweet but the Belgian yeast is a fun touch.

You have go a long way in England to find a better IPA. My only criticism is that the bottled beer is unnaturally clear, however, aroma, palette and aftertaste are very good. (Plenty of beers similar beers in US by the way)

On Cask Light golden body. Fruity citrus aroma. Medium body. Light citrus tropical fruit flavours. I prefer this bottled

Was my favourite beer for a long time. Good balance with the hops and nice, not too strong aftertaste. I still like it (a lot)..

radassace (388) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2017 330ml bottle. Pours straw with a small white head, carbonation rushing up the glass. Nose is tropical, citrus and piney. Some sweet caramel malt too. Piney, resinous mouth feel. Flavours of mango, apricot and grapefruit. Good malt base. Really long lasting dry bitter finish. Love it. Pricey stuff though.

thanatosti (1755) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
On cask and on tap @ Thornbridge, ’s Hertogenbosch. Cask: Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and a very light funky sidenote. bitter taste and of course, being from cask low in carbo. On Tap: Hazy light yellow with a medium sized very dense white head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Bitter taste and well carbonated. Either way, a very nice IPA although I like the draft version better.

3.5
aussiealchemist (57) - Berwick Victoria, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2017
Pint at The Mailling Jug, Kent. Pours clear golden with no head and no carbonation. Minimal aroma of citrus and cider. Strong hop forward taste with solid bitter hit on the front palate. Slightly thin in the middle with malt supressed. Some lingering bitterness but not over the top. Fairly typical of a west coast US IPA. Not bad.

Beerandhockey8 (417) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 15, 2017
From bottle to snifter. Pour is a golden color, thick white head. Nose is slight hop, pine, malt, doughy. Taste is bitter, bits of sweetness, light-medium body. A little sharper finish on the palate with a high carbonation. Definitely different than an American IPA but still good.
