Pours a dark amber with a little white head that doesn’t last. Aroma of tropical fruit and some malt. Flavour is fruity hops with that malt coming through and a slight sweetness. Lively carbonation with this one too. Very enjoyable beer.

jjsint (2322) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2016
KeyKeg at the 2016 Cambridge Beer Festival. Golden brown with the hintiest hint of red. Proud off-white head. Pine resin, papaya and a note of PVC in the aroma. Bitter taste tempered at first by sweetness, but then left to its own devices. Full, long, satisfying resinous bitter finish. It’s a bit churlish to say ’I expect more from my IPAs’ while rating this a (well-deserved) 3.5... however it’s a bit too ’by-the-numbers’ for me.

Floral hops, citrus fruits, some grapefruit, light pine. Clear, dark gold, small, creamy, off-white head. Medium bitter. Citrus fruits again, grapefruit, light tropical fruits too, sweet mango and oranges, bitter finish. Very decent IPA, lovely fruity flavours in the aroma and palate. Bottle from Independent Spirit, Bath.
