tommann (2982) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2015

Fin (8199) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from Jacks (Westholme Stores) Goring on Thames, Oxon, consumed at home Thursday 21st May 2015 Crystal clear gold, sparkling, looks great, white head. Taste is rather drab, some biscuity malt lacks a fresh crisp bite, no zing or fruitiness, just very forgettable, nothing wrong with it at all just unexciting. A6 A5 T5 P3 Ov10 2.9

Towey1989 (417) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2015
Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear deep golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, mango, pineapple, some caramel and grassy hops. Taste of sweet pineapple, dry orange, resin, cereal malts and grassy hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a syrupy texture. A bittersweet, orange and resinous finish. Well hopped, complex and bittersweet but syrupy and not what I was expecting. Ok but not a great APA/IPA.

FatPhil (10343) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2015
Draught (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Lovely aroma, classic english bitter, fruity hops, but lots of twigginess too. Just a bit of tea too. No way is this "APA". Orangey straw, tight persistent head. Big bold hoppy body - fleshy fruits, almondy bitterness, chewy malts. Full smooth palate, quite luscious. Yup, no "APA" detected here. Finish malty, bready, and gently bitter. Great strong english bitter. (Use of USA hops does not an APA make, UK brewers have been using UK hops for centuries - we even changed our tax laws to protect the home market.)

mr_h (3474) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2015
Cask by hand-pump at Bon Accord, Glasgow (4 Apr 2015) - pale malty aroma, clear golden, thin creamy off-white head, berry summer fruits, traditional hop finish

Theydon_Bois (12178) - 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!

Iznogud (1336) - CROATIA - JAN 5, 2015
Cask at Ship and Mitre, Liverpool, UK. Pours golden with white head. Citrus, tropical fruits, caramel malts, juicy with hoppy bitter finish.

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.
