COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thrillseeker is a "West Coast-style" India pale ale that is sure to push your senses to the edge. It starts with a base of American 2-row malt and a restrained dose of extra light caramel malt to let the hops punch though. It’s then generously hopped with Chinook, Summit, Centennial, and Simcoe for a massive citrus and tropical hop profile. Thrillseeker is dry hopped with Simcoe and Chinook for an über fresh resiny aroma.

Leighton 10K tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Colin. Yellow gold beer, light haze. Small bubbly white head. Palate is light and airy with very fine carbonation. Airy pale malt, mildly sweet. Resinous hops, little skunk. Good hop spice. Touches of lemon balm and pine and a little citric peel. Light dry finish. Bitterish linger. Caused 2 days of bickering between Colin and Paul. What you could call a room divider!

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Coleen for this freshie. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a frothy white head. Great nose, lots of grapefruit, some tangerine, lemon rind. Light to medium sweet flavor with strong bitter grass, pine needles, lots of rind, pith. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Quite bitter on the finish, more grass, rindy citrus, light warming alcohol. The bitterness in the aftertaste is a touch abrasive. Beautiful aroma but the flavor doesn’t follow on well enough. Decent.

brokensail (15638) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 14, 2011
A: The beer pours a clear, light amber color with a dense white head, and sticky lacing. S: A very intense nose. Lots of pineapple fruitiness and plenty more piney hops. There’s a moderate grapefruit aroma, along with mild herbal notes and sweet tropical fruits. Overall a really dank hop character. T: The flavor is very heavy on the pine. Plenty of perfume with grapefruit, pineapple, and floral hop flavors. There is a decent amount of bitterness to it and only a touch of malt sweetness. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation and a little bit of bitterness on the finish. O: A nice IPA, here. Perhaps not as good as Melrose, but definitely something you could have a glass or two of.

Bottle - Pine and some light tropical fruits. Clear gold with a rich white head. Grapefruit and a huge bitter hit that fades quickly. Nice IPA.

Scopey (12007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours clear gold with a small white head. The nose is fresh, juniper, floral, lemon, lime and light sweetness. The taste is bitter, boozy, floral, peppery, lemon peel, grapefruit and floral notes. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Booze is too much of a dominant factor. Nose is rather good, but the taste doesn’t live up to it.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Ariel for this bottle! Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of oniony hops, overripe fruity and piney, and some malt, with a light buttery hint. Flavor has sweetish malt with a caramel note, fruity, tropical and citric, and piney hops, and nice bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice.
