Hand-pulled pint in Ye Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 17th May 2014. Amber pour with a full white crown that hung around for a while. Hops rule the roost throughout the brew. Not as in your face as some of the US West Coast beers but plenty for the UK. A bit one dimensional maybe but pleasant all the same.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Hazy amber with a white and fluffy head. Aroma of tropical fruits and resins with agrumes notes. Body is a bit viscous but refreshing. Tastes a lot of fruits, but has strong malty hints which recall dried fruits rather than fresh fruits. Agrumes and resin comes again within a dry hoppy finish which is not too bitter though. A very well balanced beer, drinkable, tasty and not too bitter. defnitely recommended .

Cask @ Brewery Shades, Crawley. Amber, clear with considerable white head and lacing. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of malt and hay. Taste starts out slightly sweet and then... I can feel my tongue dry. Wow. Bitter on a US IPA scale but also nicely balanced. A well executed beer to cherish and remember.

Keg, 23 Club, Liverpool. Amber looks with a small white head. Juicy citrus and grassy hop nose wise. Tropical fruits, sweet malt and some very tidy hop bitterness unfolded in the flavour. Tasty stuff, can’t fault it.
