jamesie1857 (1374) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2013
On cask @ Waggon and Horses, Sheffield - Golden to yellow body, tiny creamy head. Hoppy nose, with notes of citrus and some underlying malt presence. Flowery and hoppy flavour, little malt in the background. Average at best.

alastairkerr (6) - SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2013 does not count
My default IPA in Edinburgh when nothing exciting is on. Creamy and smooth with a pleasant hop after taste.

wimpyjoe (3750) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Golden with a quickly disappearing head. Sour hopped but with plenty of malts in the mix.

eaglefan538 (2886) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Poured a golden color, nice frothy head. Aroma of fruits. Flavor of fruits and grains. Hops balanced a tad but overall could have been played up more. Body was moderate to frothy on cask. A light and refreshing brew.

allmyvinyl (3135) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Pint at the brewery. You’d think if it was going to be good anywhere, it’d be here, right? Well, after a few years of having increasingly bad pints of this stuff around Edinburgh, then outright avoiding it in the same locale for another couple of years, I thought I’d give it another go. It’s still the same. Dull as the proverbial dishwater.

danlo (1131) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2013
Cask at Pennyweight, Darlington. Clear golden amber colour, foamy white head leaving lots of lacing, and a malty aroma. Taste is fruity malt mash, watery, with a biscuity note. Light creamy mouth feel, medium carbonation and a very slight hoppy dry bitterness. OK bitter.

Imaena (1817) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2013
This was my go to bitter at the pub in northern England and Scotland. Subtle, low abv for sessioning, and goes well with food.
