4.21/5  rDev +6.3%

Good Spirit Co, Glasgow (330ml, £4):
Orange amber with a two fingers tall, bubbly head that is a slightly off-white colour and holds very well and leaves a great lacing too.

A balanced citrus and grapefruit aroma with light pine hops and floral notes. There is a light grassy hops aroma along with some tropical fruits and caramel.

Floral and pine hops with a light amount of bitterness, some good citrus and tropical fruit flavours such as peach, grapefruit and some passion fruit. Again a very nice blend that goes down great.

Smooth with a light citrus tang and a touch of bitterness, there is light medium carbonation and a mild bitter mouthfeel to this one. The beer is quite refreshing and goes down great with good balance.

An excellent and perfectly balanced beer with all the flavours working well together and complimenting each other perfectly. A very refreshing with a nice, fruity and light bitter taste that goes down incredibly easily.

On tap at Sessions in Greensboro.Poured into an imperial nonic a deep hazed burnt orange with a well defined one finger white crown,I loved the intense orange color of the beer.A mix of deep pine resin,grass,and grapferuit rind in the nose,the aromas didnt jump at ya but they were appetizing.Awesome hop complexity on the palate,resiny and citric with mild onion-like flavors as well,a sweet biscuit malt base actually holds up well to the big hops.A real nice complex ipa,most of the different hop flavors came thru from each hop making it very unique,I loved it.

Thanks to my brother for sharing this beer.

The beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with a large white head. The aroma is peaches and oranges, with a hint of pine and some biscuit malt. The flavor is very similar, with some bitter orange notes standing out. There is also some biscuit malt, and a touch of pine, but the bitterness level is still about medium. The mouthfeel and medium and the carbonation is about medium as well.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of March 2014. Picked up last weekend from Beeritz in Leeds. Love the somewhat kaleidoscopic label. 19 hop varities - sounds like a fantasy IPA!

Poured into a Duvel tulip. A rich marmalade colour with decent carbonation and plenty of hazy sediment. Produces a gigantic head of creamy off-white foam with excellent stability; this eventually subsides to a surface layer. A juicy aroma of fruity aromatic hops - notes of white grapes, melon, grapefruit, tropical fruits, citrus, the list goes on.... This is underpinned by subtle caramel malt and earthy yeast. Tons of hops!

Tastes of fruity aromatic hops with a restrained bitter finish. Notes of white grapes, grapefruit, melon, tropical fruit and citrus, along with biscuity malt and earthy yeast. Quite juicy and dry. A subdued bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and full-bodied, but a bit flat. Mildly spicy and rather astringent - dries the palate. Aftertaste of fruity hops; yum!

Tasty - a dazzling array of aromatic hop flavours to be savoured. However, it's not the best IPA I've ever had; too many competing aromatic notes. It's good but something tells me that 'less is more' applies to beer as well. Still, the creative effort should be acknowledged - I doubt that I'll be drinking another beer brewed with 19 hop varieties any time soon. A solid effort that is only let down by a lack of carbonation. Grab one if you come across it.

Bottle from yesterday's trip to Premiere. With all the hops listed, one would imagine a double IPA. It is a single and that's consistent with the understated IBU. Peachy coloured body with carb bubbles. Fresh smell. Some pickle flavour, more orange citrus flavour as it warms. Good drinkability.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller Teku (proper!). Poured a dark red-orange with a one and a half finger off-white head that subsided to one finger very slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, tangerine, citrus, citrus hop, fruit, fruit hop, and a subtle earthy note. The flavor was of sweet malt, fruit, fruit hop, earth, earth hop, spice, citrus, and subtle citrus hop. It had a medium feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. The aroma on this one was definitely top-notch in my opinion based on some brews I’ve had from the style. Loads of fruit and citrus going on with a nice balance of sweetness. The flavor however wasn’t as well balanced unfortunately. The spice character going on was definitely a little invasive. Worth trying if you get the chance even if only for the aroma going on.
