STEVIE_NIX's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20

Bottle from cotteridge wines. this has a lovely hop aroma on pouring. Very resinous. Pours a dark amber with small white head. Taste is initially light but with a big hop bitterness coming in right after. Hints of spice then are overtaken by a real grapefruity peachy mouth. I enjoyed this the more i drank it. the taste remained in my mouth for a good while after. reminded me of Arbors Yakima valley from a few years back. pretty good id say.

Espectacular en cask. Cremosa, aromática, fruta y especias. Acaramelada en boca y amargota . Regusto prolongado. @ CASK.

explosivedog (1177) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 24, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours orange. Grapefruit, white grape, lemon peel, some light biscuit stuff. Overly bitter and a little harsh.

andrepintado (3398) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle from beer gonzo. Hazy orange color. Thin white head. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet. Medium dry body. Quite balanced taste. Aroma and flavour is hops, orange, blueberries, mango, peach, pine. Great beer.

beer-yum (1706) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 26, 2017
Restrained citrus aroma in a golden amber pour. Laid back hop forward balance to start that builds through a fruity body and culminates in a big bitter finish. Pretty much what an American IPA should be.

Tinaccio (388) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 11, 2017
Keg at St Albans Beer Shop, St Albans, UK. Colour is hazy golden, with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, tropical, peach, apricot, citrus, orange, herbs, pine. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium, carbonation is fine to average. Finish is fruity and light bitter. Overall nice!

CloakedDagger (2481) - - MAY 3, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy, opaque golden with a lacing, off-white head. Some juicy, citrusy hops if not exactly crisp. Medium-bodied, soft on the palate, juicy, chewy with a solid late bitterness. 030517

Heidbummer (644) - SCOTLAND - MAR 24, 2017
1/2 at Euston tap east. Pours very hazy orange gold. Aroma is mostly herb and hops. The taste is such more complex. Grass, big tropical juice, malt, popcorn, dried mixed herbs. Nicely balanced and really good.

kraddel (8108) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2017
Tap at beerlovers bar. pours clear blonde, small white head. Smell is bit aromatic, but mostly fresh, ’green’ hops. Taste is intense, bitter. Some mild sweertness from the aroma. pretty nice and balanced IPA, with a very nice intensity and bitterness.

ulrikolsen (576) - DENMARK - JAN 21, 2017
Tap. Pours almost clear golden with lazing offwhite head. Aroma has light malt, bread and hints of biscuit and is hoppy with grass, citrus and pine. Also some yeast. Taste is malty with light bread, notes of biscuit and is hoppy with grass, citrus, pine and resin. Finish is dry and bitter.

john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2017
Bottle. Hazy Pale Gold in colour. Good foamy off-white head. Good lacing. Very Fruity; tangy grapefruit and lemon citrus, rind. Hoppy; piney resinous hops, assertive hop bitterness. Malty; toasty malts. Bitter very citrus fruity and fairly intense piney hoppy throughout. Enjoyed this. Nice fruity hoppy IPA! (2016-01-22)
