jookos (1907) - FINLAND - FEB 11, 2014
On cask @ blackdoor. Yellow colour. Pale malts, fruity grapefruity hops. Well bittered, light but not watery. Pretty nice thirst quencher . This one did have a bunch of eggy sulphur on it, but otherwise a nice smooth light tasty brew.

hohops (211) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
Appearance- light and hazy, golden with a small head. Aroma- big hops, zesty, fruity. Taste- some carbonation here, all about the hop bitterness, a bit of tangy lemon/orangey. A nice ale overall.

fiammanghilla (489) - Genova, ITALY - JAN 19, 2014
Pompa @ Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà. Chiara un pelo torbida con bellissima schiuma. Carbonazione a zero, amara e beverina, mantiene quello che promette al naso!

gegwilson (917) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Cask in the Prince of Wales, Farnborough. Pale golden coloured with a frothy white head. Sweet at first before a bitter tropical fruit finish with grapefruit and pineapple. A refreshing and sessionable brew. Just a little thin perhaps.

Tgn (20) - Herefordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Pale golden colour, good head. very hoppy aroma. good balanced bitter, just a touch of light malt, and something of a dry flowery hop flavour with a hint of citrus. Dry and moderately bitter, medium moreish finish.

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2013
Cask. It smells very fruity (grapefruit). The beer has no head, the body is dark orange-red. The taste is bitter and fruity. The body is medium strong and creamy with a flat carbonation.

jjsint (624) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2013
Cask @ Guide Dog, Southampton. Mid-gold, tiny white head. Full hoppy aroma: grapefruit (Cascade?) and less definable citrus. The taste is pleasant but falls short of the taste bud utopia suggested by the aroma. Slightly too bitter, unbalanced and a bit soapy. However Hopheads is still a great pint from one of Britain’s best producers of cask ale.

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/3/13] Cask at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell in London. Clear golden. Aroma of fruity hops and a bit of farty notes. Rather dry flavor with fruity hops and a moderately bitter finish. Rather light-bodied. Refreshing.
