Keeps a frothy head. Has carbonation. Got citrus, grapefruit, but not strong. Carbonation does hit on smell in the glass. Low key finish. Came in 500ml bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shoulderbroken (3906) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 24, 2016
Tap at Grub. Pretty English feel to it, light maltiness, minerals, bit of pineapple, toffee, touch of spice. Some kind of real ale yeastiness. Nice to start off but then fades a little.

Amber pour with long lasting head. Caramel & hops aroma. Dry taste with pleasant maltiness. Finish is strong, dry, lingering bitterness.

Bozo_skeleton (1053) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 4, 2016
Blonde orange, grosse carbo, collet moyen de fines bulles, persistant. Aromes citrons, fruits exotiques, caramel, cereales. Mince, amertume citronne en finale. Une English IPA de bonne facture

explosivedog (498) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 4, 2016
330ml bottle. Aroma is fairly nondescript. Maybe some fruit in there but hard to tell what. Flavour is bigger, with a lovely refreshing citrusy start. It all blends into a decidedly English hop finish though, and for me it doesnt work. Perhaps its true to the original definition of the style, but theres a reason the American version is so much more popular. Certainly drinkable, but not great.

TedE (1051) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 18, 2016
330ml bottle into glass. Golden bronze beer with solid foamy white head. Tiny bubbles, smells sweet and earthy. Light body, oily texture. Finish is bitter lemon. Refreshing, nice beer.

From bottle. Cracked the cap and instant foam. After taking the first sip I understand why. Over carbed. The bitterness is within my range. Strangely thick and sweet. Like it wasnt allowed to ferment out properly or they have added too much corn syrup. No real hoppy aroma noticeable. Its not real bad but I wouldnt buy it again.

Bottle thanks to Timo. Clear pale golden beer with a decent offwhite head. Hoppy pine aroma, grassy, citrus, floral, biscuit notes. Hoppy citrus flavor, grassy, biscuits, hay floral notes. Decent beer.
