On keg with husband. Basically stole it from him. It’s golden with a white head, smells really hoppy. Taste: Lots of fruits, really bitter. A real incredible beer!

Garrold (3337) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Can. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. Deep orange. Light haze. Thin, sticky, white head. Nose has jammy, spicy hop. Notes of ripe orange. Hint of woody herb, maybe. Sweet, soft toffee malts behind that. Taste is initially sweet and toffeeish, turning light, fruity, resinous bitter. Smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Shortish, light bitter finish. Nice one.

kapusil (956) - HUNGARY - JAN 24, 2016
On cask. Deep golden body, white head. Aroma and taste of bread, grape seed, pine and citruses. Minimal sweetness upfront but then the hops take over. The finish is quite dry. Very nice IPA.

ForlornHope (286) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Can at home. Pours amber in colour with a thick white head. Aroma: bready yeast, caramel, nutty with some pine resin. Taste has a little sweetness with an immediate hit of huge bitterness. Sappy malt background and more caramel, nut and hop, earthy and fragrant. Massive dry and bitter finish that makes you want more but with a rich mouthfeel. Excellent.

On cask @ Southampton Arms, London - UK. Color: hazy pale blond beer with no carbonation and small white foam. Smell: fruity and hoppy. Small floral balance and grassy notes. Very fruity nose. Mango and peach. Taste: medium body with nice peach and exotic fruits taste. Very easy drinkable with floral hint. Very nice. I recommend it. Good attenuation. Aftertaste: sweet bitterness with no resin. Well done!
