September 24, 2015 - at Craft (Covent Garden) - keg draught. As Thornbridge Bear State. Hazy orange-gold with a decent lasting fizzy/foamy tight off-white head. Aroma is resin, alcohol, citrus zest - lush, grainy, good. Taste follows - straight bottle-conditioned cloudy west coast IPA; resin, citrus, a bit tart and floral - a good one. Average body, strong carbonation, quick lively but a surprisingly quickish crisp finish. Will watch for this one in the future. Borresteijn (7036) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2017

Flavour is medium sweet, citrus, resin, hint of grass, caramel, light floral, some mango, decent bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. Tasty fruity IPA. AndreasP (276) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2017
Sampled as Bear State. Nice aroma of tropical fruits. Rather malty for a West Coast IPA, almost like a double IPA. Hop taste is also less than expected from the aroma while a strong bitterness ends this nice beer

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, hops and citrus.
Turbid golden/amber beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium white/off-white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. In terms of aroma and flavour; this beer is decent, but nothing more than that. The great appearance is the best aspect of this beer.
