Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightly hazy orange gold with a one-finger head of foam that lasts mostly throughout. Pine and grapefruit on the nose with some orange and malt as it warms. Average carbonation and average body with a slightly pillowy mouthfeel. Pithy iyokan-like finish with lingering bitterness. Nice enough.

Svesse (8006) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2015
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 26 Aug 2015) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with citrus, orange peel and crystal malt. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, caramel and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with balanced sweetness. A bit one-dimensional, but really tasty and well made. Nice one.

Towey1989 (2102) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
Keg at Indy Man Beer Con. A slightly hazy golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, some lemon, slight mango, subtle pine and a little biscuity malt. Taste is similar of big grapefruit, orange, some lemon, slight mango, subtle pine, a little straw and floral hops late on. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, lingering, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A citrus lead hoppy IPA. Can taste the Munich malts too. Really good.

johndoughty (5176) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle. bronze/orange.. Small head with grapefruit dominating with some bitterness floating around. Fairly predictable but still very pleasant to drink. Up to their usual high standard.

tyrannosaurus (7) - ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015 does not count
British IPAs are definitely catching up. Nice hop hit and bitterness, deliberately unbalanced, tons of flavour. Slightly watery mouthfeel for me but still a really nice IPA.

JackMandarin (281) - Aberdour, SCOTLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Bottle from Drinksmonger, Bruntsfield. Pours hazy. Burnt orange in colour. Aroma is a little muted. Bit of straw. Jammy. Orange musk. Taste has caramel and bread notes but is quickly overtaken by a drying bitterness that comes on strong. Good length of finish with juicy citrus that comes out dry. Creamy carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Quite sticky. Alcohol is present but works. Good.
