Bottle at bar. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, grass, grapefruit and hops. A bit thin body, mostly hops. Nice, experimental IPA.

gegwilson (2539) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Amber colour with some cream suds. An enjoyable IPA. Quite spicey with a nice bitterness and citrus notes. A solid beer rather than a spectacular one.

Gethinbeer (2436) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2010
Good quality malt aroma. hazy copper colour with a thin head and lace. Aroma has fruity hints. Astringent flavour with bitter malt. Almost Belgian like in style. Bitter hop with subtle fruits, tangy finish.

ThirstyBird (2391) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2016
Thanks to Mark for this! Pours a hazy golden color with a light tan head. The smell is toasted malt, fruit. The taste is crisp fruit, citrus, toasted malt flavor in the middle ending dry and crisp. Then body is light+ with nice, fine carbonation.

joe19612 (2367) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2008
Bottle Conditioned. Pours a cloudy dark golden colour. Has a real fruity hoppy aroma. The flavour has plenty of fruit with a long lasting bitterness.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle (in NZ), pours a crystal clear amber with a large pillowy white head. Caramal note on the nose, slightly medicinal, with peppery hops. Plenty of alcohol on the palate, along with those peppery hops. Hops dominate the malt in fact, with just a hint of toffee in the background. The finish is short, though well bittered.

patricks110 (2287) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
St. Cuthburt pours a sparkly, bright orange copperish body with a foamy off white head. Lovely carbonation with some spotty lacing and a overly unimpressive head. The nose is fruity and lightly hopped with a light breasdy malt and a fuzzy peach esque note. A hint of white sugar and light citrus. The taste is sweet and lightly malted with an overly fruity taste. Very subtle notes of lemon, grass, wheat, apricot and peach. Nothing in the taste compares to the nose. A nice, crisp finish with a light hop. St. Cuthbert has a medium body with some soft carbonation and a light subtle aftertaste of bitter hops. This is an okay brew, but nothing comparable to an IPA. The peachy sweet taste is lovely, but it is missing all the bitterness and hop character.

TheCametron (2209) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 11, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Floral hoppy nose. Great hoppy flavour. Orangey citrus. Minor caramel. Lots of bitterness. Very nice.

markas101 (2174) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2011
50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via The Dram Shop. Kicking of the Xmas beer countdown. Pours a hazy deep gold apricot. Caramel, cereal grain and lemon zest aroma. Creamy, honey sweet then a orange rind bitterness builds at the end. Quite nice.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle, Ale Cellar, Darlington. Poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a decent rocky head. Fruity hop aroma with some yeast. Flavour had the same elements and was fragrant and sweetish. Hoppy bitter finish. Good balance. Very nice indeed.
