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.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 Lovely stuff. Citrus, floral hops, not to strong but not too mild neither. Cloudy pale orange color. Very fruity flavored, some orange, maybe mango. Interesting. Serving: Bottle

toffeeslot (119) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 8, 2012
Probably served too cold, but still lots of aroma of mango, passion fruit plus all the other NZ hop attributes. Pours nice and clear with a huge creamy head. Taste is very smooth, lots of tropical flavours and a nice bitterness. In fact, I think the fact that its straight out of the fridge which makes is so creamy and refreshing. Very very nice!

Cracking curry and a very pleasant IPA to go with it. I have very kind family and friends and I have a warm glow. Although that could be because of the amount of rum Ive consumed. I have lots of rum. In fact, I have more bottles of rum than I do beer I think. More rum than a barber.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 5, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours clear gold, lively in the glass, lasting fizzy white head. Huge oily resinous hops on the nose. Hard lemon zest, orange zest and grapefruit. So aromatic you can smell it from across the room. Fruit (more lemon, orange, pineapple and lime) in the body, full of flavour. Also a twist of cinnamon spice. Medium bodied, excellent hoppy, fruit/spice finish.

Bibendum (117) - ITALY - DEC 4, 2012
Una delle migliori ipa mai bevute. Assolutamente piacevole e di facile beva, esalta le note amare caratteristiche di luppolo senza per rinunciare ad un sapore estremamente bilanciato. Da provare

wlajwl (5942) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Aroma is tropical fruit, citrus and a hint of malts. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, malts, a small hint of hop resin, slightly thin in body and a mix of bitterness and tangy in the finish.

foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2012
Massive aroma or grapefruit and even peaches. Pale, slightly cloudy yellow in the glass. Long finish of hops, you could almost be munching on them raw. Delicious.

Cask at Kittys Helsinki. Colour is golden with some white head. Aromas and flavours are citrus, fruits and hops. Excellent.

brief_smile (110) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Hazy amber, creamy white head. Big aroma of grapefruit, peach and pine. Taste is similar - strong citric notes, biscuity malts, slightly floral. Clean, bitter finish. Carbonation is spot on; mildly oily mouthfeel. Extremely balanced and eminently drinkable. Prefer this bottled to cask.
