Garrold (1087) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Tap at Brewdog, Nottingham. Hazy amber. White, lasting head. Sweet, thick, sugary grapefruit. Taste is fusty bitter. Thick, chewy palate. Sweet and bitter finish. Tipping me over the brink, after a long days rating...

Scopey (6197) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
Keg at BD Sheps Bush. It pours hazy amber with a thick white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, doughy, icing sugar, orange peel and irn bru. The taste is smooth, stewed orange, muffin, toast, light resin, light alcohol and dough with a dry, citric finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Smooth and drinkable. Rather nice.

Beese (1462) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Draught at BrewDog, Edinburgh on 17 May. Poured a hazy amber, with a thin off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit, pine needles and syrup. Sweet flavours, some tinned fruit, ripe grapefruit and chewy grain. Finish was caramel, spice and some residual booziness.

evergreen0199 (1929) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Keg at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush, London. A dark amber/straw coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Rich, caramel, tropical fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, malty, caramel, rich tropical fruit, smooth and easy drinking despite the strength. I rather like this one.

jjsint (628) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Tap @ Gravity Station, Cardiff. Fresh sourbread dough and papaya dominate the heady aroma. Sweet at first - not like an IPA at all - with a kiss of bitter hop finish. Alcohol is warming without being overpowering. Mouthfeel is slightly weaker than I’d have liked but that is such a small gripe. A top drawer experience.

jamesie1857 (1335) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Hawk - Deep amber pour with a foamy white, lasting head. Nose is pine and sweet citrus. Rather syrupy in the mouthfeel, taste is a bit tart, sour citrus and harsh on the tongue. Long and bitter finish, still on the tongue five minutes after the last sip.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes dunkel orangegoldenes Bier mit schöner beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig fruchtig, reife Früchte, hopfig herb. Geschmack sehr malzig, überreifes Dörrobst, hopfig, leicht alkoholisch.
