a_cross (593) - Poole, Dorset, - NOV 15, 2012
Gold, thin frothy head; earthy aroma; grainy malt flavour at first, leading to a hoppy, dry finish; slight sulphuric tinge permeates throughout (this example was possibly slight past its best); easy drinking, but nothing special.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
A good low alcohol bitter with lots of flavor. Pours a hazy orange with a frothy three fingers of white head. Sweet citrus and grass hops with light spiced notes. Mild caramel and honey sweetness with light lemon notes. Grainy malts on the finish

Fruity hoppy aroma. Quite sweet smelling. Golden honey colour. Very hoppy tasting with lingering back of the throat. Good session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piotr (26) - POLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Cask at Big Jug Durham. Very slight aroma of hops. Quite flat, with very little bitterness. A bit sweet, taste of friuts. Light apricot colour. The only IPA on the tap, this is the reason for trying it.

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 18, 2014
On cask: Cloudy golden pour with a creamy white head. Cut, wet grass, slight citrus, pine and cat pee. Quite tangy on the palate and refresing. Not bad.

Sad24 (67) - GREAT YARMOUTH, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Middle of the road, perfectly drinkable but nothing out of the ordinary. Aroma, IPA Citrusy taste all exist, but not overwhelming.

tommann (2622) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Cask at the Kings Arms, Stansted. Pours light gold with a small head. Aroma is sweet, honey and nutty yeast. Taste is sweet, with straw and a touch of honey on the finish.

gegwilson (971) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2014
Amber ale with a white head. There was little going on with this. A slightly sharp citrus hop flavour. Thin tasting and pretty bland really.

richie747 (39) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2013
Nice color with mild spice. No real bitterness or hop aroma. Easy drinking cask ale, but stretching the truth to call it an IPA.

kerenmk (2199) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 4, 2013
Cask at Ye Dolphin, Robin Hood’s Bay, September 2013. Clear golden with white head. Fruity, preserved fruit aroma - exotic fruit syrup and also some piss. Mild bitterness, English hops apparent in the taste. Light body, oily, malty finish.
