johndoughty (4996) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle. Golden and fruity. The hoppiness hits you from the start. Medium body with a lot of impact. Good but not as outstanding as I expected.

Towey1989 (1894) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2015
Keg at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of grapefruit, some lemon, subtle lime, slight passion fruit, a little pine, maybe mango and subtle spicy, herbal hops. Taste of passion fruit, mango, some grapefruit, slight pine, subtle lemon and herbal hops. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. A crisp, citrus, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A fresh, citrusy, hoppy British IPA. Perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness. Really easy for a 6.6. Good.

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Keg at the Grove, Huddersfield. Slightly hazy and light. Clean fruity taste with leaves, grapes, perfume, grandma. Bit of weiss beer character to it. Pretty well balanced. Lemony. Pleasant mouthfeels. Pretty solid, slightly unusual take on an IPA.

HogTownHarry (6376) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2015
September 15, 2014 - at Old Coffee House; handpull. Bubbly yellow pour, decent creamy/bubbly off-white head. The aroma surprised the hell out of me - lush tropical fruit, moderate alcohol, and hints of pine and spruce in behind - my my!! The taste followed - definite sticky icky cannabis resin bitterness jumps up and asserts itself against the solid ripe fruit malt backbone - full-bodied, bitter, surprisingly balanced, with a nice long juicy finish to it. Beer of the day at the pub.

Keg, King William IV, Leyton, 3rd April 2015. Hoxton Special at Bunny Basher. Descent white lacing, gorgeous hazy golden/lime colour. Taste is lime cordial, citrus, hop resin, pilth and pine. Excellent bitterness. Clean and fruity. Just what I needed after a long journey. Top.

Garrold (4344) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
Tap. Tapped, Leeds. Clear, amber colour. Sturdy halo of white head. Very pungent, verging on medicinal, hop. Pine resin, and a hint of smoke. Touch of oily herb. Taste is herby, oily bitter. Malty sweetness just balances out the hoppage. Smooth, full mouthfeel. Finishes, long, lightly smoked bitter.
