DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 2, 2013
Has a very faint malt aroma, no real hops on the nose which is rather odd for an IPA. Body is standard gold with a decent head. Flavour is decent malts and sweet hops; simplistic but reasonable. A simple brew but reliable.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
(Cask): Clear golden with a small white head. Floral, hop and slightly citrus aromas. Malt, hop and citrus fruit taste. Works well with a nice bitterness. Drinkable and refreshing.

Graham77 (228) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 25, 2013
Cask at the Pot Still, Glasgow. Better than the bottled version which is more than decent. A well balanced beer with good depth of flavour. Biscuity and lightly hoppy with a viscous and refreshing mouthfeel.

Very drinkable traditional bitter. Good citrus hit at the first gulp ending with floral, coppery notes.

Best pint I’ve had in a while - drinks best when a bit colder. Floral hoppy taste, with a slight note of caramel.

Cask at The Lorne, Oban. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is malty and floral. Taste is light dry, citrus, moderate carbonation, lingering dry end.

Great colour on the beer, spicy hops that seemed a bit off, flavour was very a bit like wet wood, no aromas and I barely could finish it.

northropfrye (2082) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 2, 2013
For something called an IPA this was not bitter enough for my liking. A bit sweet, but rather bland altogether. Mediocre.
