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.

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2006
Cask at Horsens Beerfestival. Clear, pale golden-yellow with a small white head. Pine, hops and pineapplenotes in the aroma. Medium body with a piny and hoppy flavor and a well-hopped finish. Sorry, it just didnt get me, but its on my list of "have-to-try-again"s. (061028)

Cask (gravity dispense)@Beer Hunters
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Very intensive honeyish, resiny, trefoil-flowery aroma. Hoppy, flowery flavor with hints of honey. Very long hoppy aftertaste. I wonder why this stylish IPA is ESB here?

brokensail (16111) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Hazy golden color with a white head. Hop profile is herbal and slightly floral with a slight hint of citrus and grass. Fairly dry nose with just a bit of bread and toasted malt sweetness. The flavor is only midly sweet, too. A bit of bread, some cracker notes, and an okay hop profile. Light bitterness of citrus peel with a light grass flavor to go along with the floral and herbal hop flavors.

Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
Straw colour. Nice loose foam. The aroma mixes some strong citrus and papaya with integrated butter, even a hint of pine. Fresh, bitter, piney beer with light diacetyl. Halfway between a hoppy bitter and a Seattle IPA, and a little bit of neither.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2007 Bottle, 5.9%. Cloudy golden colour. Soapy white head. Weak teaish hop aroma. Quite bitter hoppiness. So much aroma hops that it gets bitter and a bit rough. 6 3 6 3 15

mcberko (15011) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2011
500mL bottle, pours pale golden yellow. Aroma of citrus and piney hops, with a soapy quality. Flavour follows this exactly, with just enough malt backing. Improves hugely after a while. Excellent example of an English IPA. Delicious.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2015 Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2007) (8:3:8:4:15=3.8)
Floral and grapefruity aroma by the bucketful.Taste to match, full of bitterness and malt. Doesnt taste 5.9% at all.
Rerate: Keg (Pudel, Tallinn) (7:3:7:4:14)
A bit dead and dull compared to cask. Still nice, but no wow.
Rerate: Draught (Angleterre, Helsinki) (8:4:8:4:16=4.0)
Theres the wow! Just like I remember it first time, and if anything even better! Utterly delicious, so much character, and so drinkable too. Amazing.
