Bright, clear amber in colour. Bit of lacing, not much head. Brisk, hoppy aroma. Tangerine, tropical notes. Taste is slightly bitter, with lots of fruitiness. Palate is light to medium. Quite crisp overall and leaves the mouth dry. Lots of interest in here despite the relatively low alcohol content.

Pours copper with a thin head. Aroma is all caramel. Malty, caramel and not much else. Very boring.

Onesimus (91) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2017
Clear copper colour with half finger white fluffy head that didn't linger long. Nose; the can cracked and with the phhht the aroma from the smoke of citrus hops aroused my interest. But this was short lived as you pour the beverage soon also gives you a good nose of malt sweetness Mouthfeel is moderate to light and ample carbonation to be a smooth thirst quencher. There enough of gunpowder in the guns give a good kick of citrus and herbal tones along with hints of tropical fruits. The rifling in the barrel gives a further twist nodding towards a soft smooth caramel that blends in for a short stay. Then the long finish is a tight dry invigorating bitter bang �� Good beer

Very very hoppy. Loads better on draught. Luckily they have it on the rooftop terrace at wetherspoons in Blackpool which was a nice surprise.

A pleasent malty flavoured IPA with a slight dry fruit overtone. Dark ish coloured IPA. Overall a good tasting beer but nothing groundbreaking

330ml can at the Assembly Rooms, Epsom. Pours clear amber with a thin off white head. Aroma of malt and pine. Similar taste. Sweet finish.

Can. Aroma: I puzzled over this since he initial smell was spearmint toothpaste but worryingly that may be the glass! Decanted to another it smells moderately malt but with some citric and floral hoppy notes. The taste reflects this balance with the fruit notes of the hops somewhat blanketed by the malt with some rye evident. Overall and being aware of its corporate origins it’s better than expected.

motney (2) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2017 does not count
One of the few beers which gives out a generous aroma. Taste is pitch perfect, not to insipid yet not so strong that it over whelms you. Finally a little lingering palate that is just heavenly. Overall a gorgeous rounded beer. Hits the target beautifully.

jmgreenuk (9552) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAY 17, 2017
Can at Hope and and Champion, Beaconsfield. Poured a medium copper colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is malt, nettle weedy hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light, crisp, fresh fruity metallic hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.
