Overall solid IPA. Great aroma and proper use of hops. You smell tropical fruits. The taste starts with pineapple and citric, moderately sweet with a pleasant bitter aftertaste. There are some sweet malts, but are quickly overwhelmed by all the hops.

Perfectly clear golden amber colour with a smooth, white head. Good head retention.

Bright orangey aromas with other rounded citrus notes. Almost herbal but very good.

Moderately sweet malt flavour with a sharp, moderate bitterness. Good citrus hop flavour. Clean but everything an AIPA should be.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation. Fine.

A solid AIPA. Very crisp, flavourful and refreshing.

Half pint in 'spoons Counting House in Glasgow. Very light straw colour with a white head and orange and grapefruit citrus nose. It tastes like tangerine yet swetter and still somehow leafy, well balanced, with a slightly oily feel. Bravo. Took these notes while revising for an exam. Alas in the exam I attempted to recall what I had been revising at the time and I could picture the page and this beer, but not the details of what had been written on the page.

Pours golden, one finger white head foam going away fast. Sticky lacing. Looks nice.
Smells awesome! Really clear tropical fruit, with mango, pineapple, passion fruit, followed by tasty grapefruit and tangerines, all covering a faint caramel maltiness. This predicts a really tasty hoppy fruitiness.
Yes. Tons of hops. Really tropical at first, mainly sweet mango, pineapple, juicy passion fruit, so goddamn tasty, laced with lime, peach and oh so tasty blood oranges, with grapefruit towards the finish. Sweet malts can barely keep up with the hops, hinting some caramel and (very) floral honey. Mineral/earthy hoppy finish rather than green and sprucy; rugged and very bitter. I also get a bit of English specific hoppiness in the finish, which tries to keep this beer related to the isles, not 100% American.
Creamy smooth body helps the hops create a nice flavorful experience, not just a fizzy citrusy refreshing one. Green dry finish.
I'm glad a local bar has this at a fairly decent price, my new go-to beer when i need a tasty hop-bomb.

Hand-pulled half-pint in The Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 3rd Oct 2013.

Bright, pale golden brew with a white covering of thin foam.

Not as hop bitter as I was expecting, nor as citrusy either.

This was a pleasant surprise: I'm not a big Oakham fan to be honest, however I really enjoyed this. The hops rule, but they don't kill the malt content or take over completely like a lot of Oakham brews tend to do in my eyes.

This wasn't sweet, but there were some fruity notes leading that way at times and I nearly had another half, to confirm my thoughts, but the wife had a swig of my beer and she agreed with me about the semi-sweetness that became evident as the beer warmed a little in the glass.
