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.

Aroma of dill, citrus & lime. Pale golden color with large white head. Very mild hoppy for an IPA but very elegant. Light body with thin texture and average carbonation. Nice IPA to a broad customer base.

Ren och skär njutning från början till slut. Ljus och grumlig till färgen. Doften härligt frisk och full av citrustoner. Smaken även den med stora inslag av citrus och med en beska som rundar av och stannar länge utan att för dens skull bli för sträv. Ett guldkorn!

How do you rate one of the best IPAs ever made. So smooth and full of flavour but without overpowering with too much hops. Keeps the flavour lasting throughout and the aftertaste lingers. Keeps me coming back for more.

Cask and keg @ various. Lovely aroma of citrus and lychee fruits, clear straw appearance. Tastes light malt and grapefruit in the mouth leading to a balanced biscuity malt and citrus notes with a big citra-hop finish finish. My favourite IPA.

Well, what can you say, Mark had especially saved this one from the beer festival as i’d seen how highly rated it was here and suggested we could have a go at it later on. It didn’t disappoint, this beer is exactly what i enjoy drinking the most! A mid golden to orange coloured beer with a thick white head. a heady citrus aroma of grapefruits and oranges, followed by a slightly biscuity finish. The taste is very dry, hoppy, with strong citrus fruit flavours, dry, tart grapefruit, lemon and orange, then a bone dry finish. Perfect! (Cask - @ The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

On cask at the Punch Bowl, Stonegate York. I generally don’t like IPAs much, but this one is quite exceptional; by far the best I’ve had. It pours a beautiful amber with a white head, has a nice hop nose and then delights the palate with a perfect balance of smooth malt and hops. It does not suffer from the excessive hoppiness too many IPAs have and just delivers massive and delicious flavour without any offensive characteristics.. Many 6% beers have an overpowering alcohol taste but this hides it well. I had to have second just to confirm how really excellent it was.

Wow. Hoppy bite, citrus zing, deep flavours and a fantastic floral aroma. Doesn't get much better than this. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
