allmyvinyl (5767) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2014
500ml bottle from somewhere online, I forget, it’s been a long day. Clear golden orange pour, big white head, high carbonation keeps it there. bit too fizzy actually. Orange, apricot and cream on the nose. Light caramel sweet and good hop bitter taste. Quite rich for such a (relatively) low ABV. Sweet finish. OK.

55 cl bottle, 3€, 5.6%, 57 IBU. Clear amber color with a big rocky white head. Very hoppy on the nose. Aroma is grapefruit with hints of caramel, dried apricot and a load of bitter hops. Taste is definitely bitter and somewhat metallic. Light carbonation, medium bodied, oily texture. Damn bitter one.

MiP (14216) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, 5.6%. Good citric and grapefruity aroma. Hazy grey copper colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is sweetish and hoppy. The bitterness is quite rough, but there is a little fruitiness to balance it somewhat. On the whole, a flavourful IPA.

cloudy gold color; caramel, smoky aroma; fairly light; bitter with a fairly strong smoked malt flavor; fairly well balanced; bitter, smoky aftertaste; at first the smokiness took me by surprise, but after drinking a bit I began to enjoy it more

Leighton (13605) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2015
Bottle at home in London - sourced from Ales by Mail. Pours clear gold, effervescent, with a big, frothy white head. The nose holds lightly floral hops, some pithy citrus, grass. Light to medium sweet flavor with pronounced grassy bitterness, some grain, hay, grapefruit, lemon rind. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with nice rindy citrus bitterness, dry pale malts, strong grassy and lightly earthy bitterness. Pretty nice overall, perhaps just a touch too bitter, though.
