Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 10/10/12. Clear light gold with a small frothy off white head. Hops, grapefruit, caramel malts, touch of pine and light mango notes on the nose. Tastes of pine, hops, juicy mango, pineapple. Medium bodied with a bit of bite and fine carbonation leading to a bitter sweet finish.

weaselkenievil (1207) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
Bottle. Darkish gold with a thin to medium off white head. Aroma fruit, hops, rubber, lemon n lime, blackcurrant. Very drinkable. Not masses of wow factor but another good effort from a solid brewery.

Beese (1139) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottle from the Red Squirrel Chesham Brewery Shop. Poured a hazy golden colour, with a thick, white head. Aroma of perfume, grass and mango. Sharp bitter hop pine flavour, balanced by some brown sugar and bready malt. Finish was bitter resin, dry cereal and a slightly musky note.

andriesradu (405) - ROMANIA - APR 15, 2014
From tap @ BBF 2014. Pours hazy yellow/golden with a moderate white head. Hoppy, fruity-citrus, sweet aroma, some sugar notes. Flavor is moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, citrus, light herbal, quite sharp.

Idiosynkrasie (3269) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 12, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear, deep orangey amber colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Herbal, earthy, grassy hop aroma, some pine and spruce. Taste is dry hoppy, slightly tannic, earthy, wood, coniferes, herbs, cautious hints of pineapple, caramel malty basis, dry finish with hints of glue. OK, almost three months old (bottled on 14/01/14)... but definitely below expectations.

InPivoVeritas (196) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Pours a bit hazy orange with medium white head - longlasting and very nice. Aroma is great! Oranges, peach, pineapple, mango, caramel and light resin background. Some caramel sweetness at first, then fruity aroma and bitter finish. Bitterness is just right - not too long, not too short. Medium carbonation, medium body. Amazing IPA with great aroma and nice balance.

Arczir (72) - POLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Pours hazy orange with nice, dense head. Awesome lacing. I avoided pouring in the yeasty part, although some traces of hops from dry hopping remained. Aroma - very ripe orange, mandarin, peach, some pineapple and caramel. Very fruity taste with loads of hoppy goodness - grapefruit, peach, minimal caramel and toast. Some alcoholic warmth on palate but without nasty aftertaste. Medium body with dry finish and slightly above average carbonation.
