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.

Smells like liquid soap, tangy and fresh. A good IPA! Not that Im IPA fan but it is drinkable.

Hungarian_G (90) - - APR 26, 2013
Golden pour with off-white head. Big nose of grapefruit and citrus hops, followed by complex but well balanced taste of citrus and floral hops and some doughy yeast. Light roasted malts come into play in the back. Not your typical American-style "modern" IPA, but a very good beer. Well balanced, smooth and complex, but highly sessionable.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2013 Simply superb and wonderful citrus flavoured ale. Good body and taste right through to end of the glass. Had it on draught at the Blackfriars pub in London, and it was superb as well.

Much is said about this beer. It is all down to personal taste, but this beer is exceptional. Rich juicy citric aroma and floral fruity initial taste, this is a light golden strong ipa ale, with a powerful deep hoppy finish. This ale has won almost every beer award, and justifiably continues too win awards, dont be put off by some individuals who this beer is not a match for, definitely try this one. If you love this beer its worth trying Marstons "Old Empire" IPA which is similar strength.

Garlic_of_Doom (636) - SWEDEN - APR 13, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours golden/yellow with a crisp white head. Aroma has mostly citrus and floral hops, backed up by cookie dough malt. Taste is as aroma but quite bland, though crisp and doesnt live up to what the aroma promised. Quite thin and watery.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 5, 2013
Bottle. A clear and sparkling dark yellow beer, with a large, frothy, lightly lacing, fully lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (biscuits, toasted bread), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, lemon, grass, flowers), with notes of honey and all kinds of exotic fruits, perhaps a touch of tea. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry, very long finish with moderate bitterness. A great British IPA, mightily hopped, but refined (a rarity). In the end it doesnt even feel 100% IPA, but it feels 100% a great beer
