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.

Pours a hazy golden colour with big white head. Medium body. Aroma contains both fruit and malt characters such as citrus, pineapple and caramel. It tastes a bit sweet at the start, but covered by grapefruit peel bitterness very soon. The bitterness extends and builds a long and dry aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Diabobale (322) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - OCT 10, 2015
Birra molto agrumata e profumata, dal colore arancio con schiuma bianca fine e peristente. Note agrumate (mandarino e arancia) sia al palato che al naso, fruttate (polpa di arancia) con un corpo nella media e di una facile bevuta. Amaro finale non esaltate e di poca persistenza.

A great beer with a very clear hoppy taste and dry finish. To my palate not unlike a slightly heavier version of Six Strings Pale Ale which is one of my favourites. Certainly on my shopping list from now on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very nice beer. The taste is quite a journey. You can taste many things. The bitterness is hiden behind sweet introduction, with a small touch of chocolate. Only thing that I miss is a stronger aroma. Overall it’s good beer.

juffage (136) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
On tap at Buxton Tap House, and several bottles bought previously from work. Very tropical fruit forward IPA. Orange/straw color with classy aroma. Resiny, piney, dank, mango, caramel flavours. Tied for best UK IPA of all time with Cannonball and a few Kernel offerings. Just drink it already.

Kauge (857) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle at Hell Hunt in Tallinn. Opaque orange body, head with great retention, lace good too. Resiny, pretty rough aroma, blood orange sweet, other sweet tropical fruits. Very juicy sweet, a bit oniony taste, with a mellowish bitter finish. It’s obviously too old, bottled 14.4.15 - its BB should’ve been due already but is 14.1.16. Feels less exciting than the average good IPA but considering I remember having it many times before, and liking it, I’m giving it a better score than this specific bottle deserves.

Cobrizo limpio y espuma marfil compacta. Aromas intensos de cítricos, mandarina, uva, pomelo, pino y resinas. Cuerpo medio, sabor intenso como en aroma y final de amargor resinoso duradero.

Pours hazy golden with a medium white head that lasts and leaves lovely lacing. Aroma is mango, pineapple, pine, grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, ripened mango with lovely sweet malt backbone and big bitter hop finish. Very drinkable, a top UK IPA.
