captaindoctor (1) - - JUL 19, 2013
Strong viscous mouth feel, moderate hoppy taste and a hint of citrus. Smoother than others in its class, finishes well. Head is not great, hops could be more pronounced.

oobawa (1082) - Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2017
Decent IPA, big cat pee nose with a grapefruit-pine soul. Comes off a little too sweet, in need of some IBU anger on the back end, but no major complaints. Looks good, feels good.

Clareeses (77) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2017 Can purchased at Gomers. Moderate carbonation, full mouthfeel. Heavy on the hops initially, finishes with a hint of wheat. Fresh and crisp, yet still bitter so you get that classic ipa taste.

BlackHaddock (6974) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2017
12 oz bottle: BBD 23rd Mar 17. Drank at my Son-in-Laws (in California) on 25th Jan 17. Really enjoyed it. Golden amber body, off-white head. Hops rule the roost with an unequal measure of citrus and piney aromas and flavours, light malty undertones help to balance out the beer nicely.

john44 (2986) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle. BBE date Oct 2016; Drank Sept 2016 - Hazy Orangey Gold in colour. Large foamy off-white head. Fantastic lacing. Very Fruity; zesty grapefruit and orange citrus, peel, rind. Hoppy; resinous piney hops, dank and rather herbal. Spicy; mildly peppery. Malty; bready malts, caramel/toffee. Good fruit/hop/spice/malt balance. Bittersweet citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Assertively bitter fruity hoppy and dry into finish. Excellent considering so near to BBE date. Enjoyed this. Good stuff. Solid IPA! (2016-09-29)
