4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Euston Tap. Clear, pale gold pour with a foamy, white head. Lots of grass and some tangerine on the nose. Flavor is just sweet enough, with some toasty cereal and hay, plus grass and straw, light pine bitters, some soft florals. Light to medium in body with fine to average carbonation. Mild sticky finish, perfect balance, bit more citrusy fruits here, some pineapple, light malts and toasted grains. Ah, wonderful! Makes you want to just keep drinking.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2011 Hand pulled cask at the Harp. Pale gold with a lively white head. Unbelievable aroma and full flavour for a beer of such modest strength. The best Citra based brew that I’ve tried to date.Pound for pound, the best beer I’ve enjoyed this year. Superb!

Cask at Angleterre, Helsinki. Poured pale golden in colour with a white head. Citrus, grassy and fruity aroma. Flavour similar with a nice sweet fruity and slightly malty taste too. Ending was nice fruity citrus with a light grassy bitterness twist. Very crisp and refreshing on the whole. Leaves a nice albeit fast dimishing lacing on the glass. Fruity citrusbomb!

Cask at The Rake. Finally got around to trying this after hearing so much about it, and it didn’t disappoint! Pours a hazy gold, with a medium pure white head. Huge piney hop, followed by a big lemon and lime hit, light toffee and a hint of madarin in the aroma. Taste was piney, grassy, lemon, lime, with a smooth bitter finish.

Cask at The Harp, London. Golden coloured pour with medium fluffy white head. Great fresh hoppy aroma. Similar to the original Hophead but this was slightly more bitter. Very fresh sample, crisp, hoppy and great taste for a beer of this strength. Good stuff.
