Garbageman (468) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - NOV 14, 2012
From tap. Poured orange with a little haze. Small white head. Aroma was bready with a grapefruit hop wallop. Taste piney, fruity hops with a biscuit malt backbone. Slight stall taste, but I’ll error on the side of the keg date. Will try again to verify.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with a medium sized white head. A bit of malt on the nose, a touch of citrus. Medium bodied, citrus, earthy malt and grain. Slow pungent earthy grapefruit into the finish. Nice stuff.

Theydon_Bois (12738) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle in the hotel lobby, RBWG ’15, night 2 - 20/02/15. I might have dragged this one down from Asheville? Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is tangerine, bitter orange, straw, melon. Taste comprises orange pith, straw, light bread, melon. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. A pretty basic IPA but drinkable enough.

Bottle. Hazy, light orange brown pour with a nice off white head that dissipated relatively quickly. Citrus, lemon zest, pine, malt and candy. Big sweet body with a bitter finish. Nice

Leighton (14040) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle shared late night during RBWG 2015. Pours cloudy gold with a creamy white head. The nose has some ripening citrus fruits, pale bread. Medium sweet flavor with dusty pale malts, rindy citrus, slight grains. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Simple citrus and dry, pale bread on the finish. Decent.
