imdownthepub (11965) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at Tap East Pub & Brewery, Stratford, London. Hazy greenish gold with white head. Here we go, straight into an elderflower type aroma and flavour, quite fruity, developing towards grapefruit and pineapple. Loads of bitterness and very hoppy. Great stuff.

FatPhil (11836) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2013
500ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Fest2013)
Very nice hoppy fruity aroam. Hazy deep straw, small light head. Rubber taste. After the plastic, the body deos show the aromatic nature of the hops. Some sugary taste too. Finish has more and more hop bitterness with every sip, until the whole mouth throbs with hops. Good IPA, but a little OTT.

On tap at Buxton Tap House, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small beige head. Nose is quite fruity, with citrus and piney hops. Flavour is very dry, with lots of dry piney and floral hops, and bone dry biscuity malt to back. Very dry, without any residual sweetness at all. Very good IPA.
