Cask; Regular.
Intense tropical fruit flavours are matched with with a hoppy bitterness to make this a dangerously drinkable 5.5% IPA

Theydon_Bois (11073) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2015
Cask at the Dean Swift, 03/01/15. Clear golden with a decent off white covering that retains well. Nose is pale malt, straw, light citric vibes, pretty mellow all round. Taste comprises straw, pale malt, melon, grassy, light bread notes, lemon rind. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitterness in the close. So so - NOT an IPA, more of an ESB, no hop presence and at 5.5% ABV is firmly in APA territory anyway!

Clear pale gold beer, decent white head. Palate is crisp and semi dry. Orange pith, orange marmalade hops with a touch of floral things. Juicy tropical fruits but very light, still adds colour though. Dry bitterness dominates the dry finish. Not bad just a bit dry.

Cask conditioned handpump Crowd Of Favours Leeds 14/04/14. A hazy gold coloured beer with a bright white head. Citrussy hoppy. Over harsh flavours. Malts are pale and the excessive bitterness is allowed to dominate. Low drinkability for me.

imdownthepub (10980) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Cask conditioned at The White Horse, Banbury. Hazed gold with white head. This proved to be a hoppy, fruity, tropical fruit, hopped beer. Passion fruit, some sweetness, fullish, a good drinkable premium golden beer. Good.

wimpyjoe (5073) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Cask @ White Lion. Heptonstall Beer Festival. Lighter-amber in colour with a thin head. It has a malt-hop aroma and a balanced taste with some light fruits evident.

jjsint (1130) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Cask @ CAMRA NWAF 2014, Derby. Golden yellow, clear with some white head. Light malt citrus aroma. The initial taste is bittersweet with a slightly jarring bitter finish. Ok but not too great, and in no way an IPA.

Finn (4531) - Tromsř, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
New Oxford, Salford 27 Jan 13. Lys gylden. 0 skum. Litt punktlacing. Ser ut som saft. Svak grapefruktaroma. Litt vassen - men bra fruktsmak. Litt třrr ettersmak.
