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.

tombyars (1640) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2012
Tasted this in the Last Post, Paisley (JDW) in October 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Strong citric aroma of grapefruit and lemon notes long in intensity. Thick resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt base gives a rich fruit flavour of gooseberry, kiwi, white grape and pineapples with clear honey notes evident. Dry hop flowers give a big citrus whack of lemons and pine resin which compliment the citrus malt well. Strong hoppy finish with greengage fruit and honey notes sweet and tart in the mouth. An impressive IPA and highly recommended.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 9, 2012
IPA Fruttata con profumo di arancia e con un vaghissimo odore di miele che la rendeno molto originale al naso. Sapore amaricante di zest di arancia e pompelmo. Luppolata alla perfezione. Finale persistente.

Poured from cask. Totally flat no head. Aroma has tropical fruits, lots of mango and pineapple, subtle pine. Taste has citrus and tropical fruit flavours and balanced with a honeycomb sweetness, not cloying. Fresh, sweet, smooth and fruity. Bloody bang tidy!

SlovakSniper (5315) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2012
(50 cl. BB 08/08/2012) Une bire qui prsente une robe dore. Une petite tte blanche qui laisse des traces en se retirant. Un nez qui propose des fleurs de houblons et un malt aux contours mielleux. Une naissance de parfums citronns. Un got qui se dveloppe au cours de la dgustation. Un ensemble houblonn qui laisse beaucoup de fleurs sur les papilles. Du citron qui russit se placer sur ma langue. Les crales maltes dgagent davantage de miel que de caramel. Lamertume propose est plus ou moins intense. Une bouche habite par un corps moyen-faible. Un ptillement actif. Une texture qui, avec de limagination, est huileuse. Une finale faite de fleurs amres qui, dfaut dtre explosive, demeure agrable.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
Clear golden pour with a medium white head. Pleasant aroma of citrusy hops and honeyish malt. Very good flavor of floral, citrusy hops with honey and malt, the bitterness is restrained. The body is light to medium and the carbonation is soft. Very good.

VertBaconStrips (2361) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - MAR 2, 2012
Poured out a clear light gold that sparkles with a white fluffy cap - reminds me of a lager. After dumping in the bottom half of the bottle is got a tad hazy with a bit of suspended particles. The nose is lemony with spicy earthy hops - lots of them. There is a bit of foul veggies but only on deep snorts. Maybe this beer is getting a bit old. There is also some tangerine. Big bitterness on every angle of each sip, faint caramel, tangy, salivating created sweetness on the back end. Some spice, some faint orange - there is fruit here but I cant quite place it. Oooooo Jump played by the Oilers organ dude - awful. Low carbonation, leaves slick teeth similar to eating Chapstick. Decent beer but easily forgotten. Better than the normal Brit IPA.

jamestulloch (3705) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 29, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 Bottle from Wetherspoons, Edinburgh airport. Slightly hazy golden body with a thin white head that holds well. Low carbonation. Aroma of white bread, pineapple and orange. Flavour of earth, lemon and and a hint of mango. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A decent, if unspectacular, IPA.

taganaya (39) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2012
Cask at the Hilary step, whalley range, Manchester. Clear orange gold with white head. Aroma tropical fruits and honey. Taste same plus yeast and grass. Yeast a bit strong, lingers in the aftertaste too. A bit heavy but still quite nice.
