imdownthepub (14334) - 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.

radassace (257) - 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 (237) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAY 9, 2017
Blonde bien dore avec une belle mousse blanche qui persiste et une monte de bulles trs vive. Nez typique des IPA brasses avec des houblons Amricains 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 bires houblonnes du 21ime sicle ! Celle-ci ne droge pas la rgle, et autant vous dire que ces armes sont particulirement puissants et quilibrs. Un trs grand nez pour une IPA, surtout quil est soutenu abondamment par de beaux parfums de caramel, de chocolat au lait, de noisette, de pralin, damande, de miel. Superbe ! En bouche, carbonatation trs correcte, alcool lger mais suffisant, levures trs douces, texture pas trop sur leau malgr un manque de corps qui nimpacte pas le palet et limpression dgage, amertume relativement douce sans aucune astringence et qui persiste longuement mais toujours en souplesse. Larrire gout un ct minral trs prononc, presque mtallique mais sans que ce ne soit dsagrable. Cela dit cette note mtallique ne participe pas lensemble et tend le dsquilibrer trs lgrement. La longueur du final est intressante et sarticule sur des notes de noix ainsi que le caramel et le miel. En conclusion, les armes sont superbes, le gout est trs correct, le palet est excellent. Une excellente IPA tout simplement. Bouteille 33cl, Boissons du Monde, Saint-Egrve.

ALLOVATE (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2015
At just on cool and into a snifter. Hazy, pastel yellow and still. Head off the pour holds; snow-white and daubs the glass well. Strong, dried herb and butter note atop hints of fresh baked bread, honey and almonds. Bready, sweet and a little cloying on the palate - OK its over date, but this drinks like its a year over date. Light bitterness is overdone by the yeasty notes. Body is light but it sits heavy in the stomach. Not much else. Forgettable. (33cL, BBE 04/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)
