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.

aenima (335) - Askim, - JUL 23, 2013
Very citrusy aroma. Very pale colour. I would describe this as a west coast ipa. A good west coast ipa but not mind blowing.

thanatosti (1619) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
On cask and on tap @ Thornbridge, s Hertogenbosch. Cask: Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and a very light funky sidenote. bitter taste and of course, being from cask low in carbo. On Tap: Hazy light yellow with a medium sized very dense white head. Aroma of tropical fruits. Bitter taste and well carbonated. Either way, a very nice IPA although I like the draft version better.

aussiealchemist (8) - Berwick Victoria, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2017 does not count
Pint at The Mailling Jug, Kent. Pours clear golden with no head and no carbonation. Minimal aroma of citrus and cider. Strong hop forward taste with solid bitter hit on the front palate. Slightly thin in the middle with malt supressed. Some lingering bitterness but not over the top. Fairly typical of a west coast US IPA. Not bad.

Beerandhockey8 (386) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 15, 2017
From bottle to snifter. Pour is a golden color, thick white head. Nose is slight hop, pine, malt, doughy. Taste is bitter, bits of sweetness, light-medium body. A little sharper finish on the palate with a high carbonation. Definitely different than an American IPA but still good.

Decent, if nothing out of the ordinary. Medium body, medium bitterness, classic, fairly old school.

Onesimus (61) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Cracking beer, this is the Fred Astaire of pale ales light on its feet zippy zingy zesty. Pale golden colour, one finger foamy white head. Light on the tongue effervescent in the mouth. Lime, citrus fruit and pine; medium pithy bitter finish Light and crisp with lingering cutting after taste. Didn't last very long in the glass. ��

Kiebab (14) - Braniewo, POLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle at home. Pale with medium head. Aromas of grapefruit and melon. White grapefruits and peels of orange in taste, medium bitterness. Ive had it from cask few times at Market Vaults in Tamworth before and I can promise that its very drinkable.

Navers (56) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle from Maryhill Tesco Express Glasgow. Beer served in 8C, Teku Glass. After few times with this beer (and a thought that this is solid IPA) I was shocked at first, after opening the bottle. Strong iron smell, like in some cheap euro-lager. Taste is also really metallic, somehow refreshing, but spoiled because of this metallic nails aftertaste. Not sure what happen to this beer (incorrect storage in the shop?), it feels like a shadow of old himself, or like a different beer.

Alebarasi (83) - Dobrova, SLOVENIA - MAR 19, 2017
Light yellow color with a light green note, small hop particles and medium white head, which quickly dissolves. Medium body, medium carbonation, no lacing. Grassy and earthy aroma of citruses (especially grapefruit, pomelo and lemon) and their zest, pine, malts, hay, hops, resins, passion fruit, apricot, some mango and lychee. Hoppy and floral taste of bitter citruses, juniper and herbs. Slick mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste. Easy to drink one. Top quality brew for me.

monti24 (64) - Graz, AUSTRIA - MAR 17, 2017
Aroma is tropical fruit and some citrus. Body is quite light sweet with plenty bitterness and lively carbonation. Flavor is full of tropical fruit, pine, citrus and some malt
