imdownthepub (14979) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, - JUN 11, 2013
Bottled 330ml from Sandra. Gold with white, slightly fizzed, head. There is a good fruity aroma on opening, oranges then on the palate there is a clean, citrusy flavour, bitter and lasting. Pretty decent.

mabuzzer (877) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2017
330ml bottle. Clear golden with a reasonable foamy white head. Soft fruit aroma, flavour is more soft fruit, with very little bitterness. OK, but not the big, bold beer I expected.

3.2
Kita (2194) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 2, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear golden color with thin creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of tropical fruit, dried fruit, grass and caramel. Taste starts light sweet grainy and resinous, following is refreshing fruity, grassy and medicinal, mouthfeel is crisp, while finish is average bitter. Medium body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Decent one...

sinte (582) - Udine, ITALY - JUL 22, 2017
Bottle 0.33L. Clear golden body with an average, frothy, white head, mostly lasting with some nice lacing: high density of medium sized bubbles. Moderate-to-heavy hoppy (grapefruit, flowers) and light malty (caramel) aroma with notes of white fruits. Moderate-to-heavy bitter and light sweet flavour with a long-lasting and structured bitter finish. Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation.

radassace (370) - SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2017
330ml can. Pours an unfiltered but fairly clear golden amber with a small white head. Nose is very malty, biscuit, bread, caramel with some citrus, mango, passion fruit, orange peel and gooseberry. medium mouth feel, light carbonation. Big malts, leading into a tradition style bitterness. Some tropical fruits come out, but fairly subdued. Nice but a bit bland.

Zarrach76 (295) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 9, 2017
Blonde bien dorée avec une belle mousse blanche qui persiste et une montée de bulles très vive. Nez typique des IPA brassées avec des houblons Américains et modernes (Simcoe, Cascade, Citra, Nelson Sauvin) : rose, litchi, orange, pamplemousse, jasmin, bergamote, citron vert, gingembre, verveine etc. Fleurs et agrumes, la combinaison aromatique des IPA et bières houblonnées du 21ième siècle ! Celle-ci ne déroge pas à la règle, et autant vous dire que ces arômes sont particulièrement puissants et équilibrés. Un très grand nez pour une IPA, surtout qu’il est soutenu abondamment par de beaux parfums de caramel, de chocolat au lait, de noisette, de praliné, d’amande, de miel. Superbe ! En bouche, carbonatation très correcte, alcool léger mais suffisant, levures très douces, texture pas trop sur l’eau malgré un manque de corps qui n’impacte pas le palet et l’impression dégagée, amertume relativement douce sans aucune astringence et qui persiste longuement mais toujours en souplesse. L’arrière gout à un côté minéral très prononcé, presque métallique mais sans que ce ne soit désagréable. Cela dit cette note métallique ne participe pas à l’ensemble et tend à le déséquilibrer très légèrement. La longueur du final est intéressante et s’articule sur des notes de noix ainsi que le caramel et le miel. En conclusion, les arômes sont superbes, le gout est très correct, le palet est excellent. Une excellente IPA tout simplement. Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrève.

m.mahu (193) - Iasi, ROMANIA - JAN 24, 2017
Bottle. Yellow with small head. Low carbonation, pale malts, not very much IPA, but ok drinkable. Forgettable at the most.
