Aroma: grassy hops, some fruits (citrus, grapefruit?). Appearance: amber, slightly hazy, little white head. Taste: light to medium sweet, some bitterness. Palate: medium carbonation, bitters getting stronger, dry finish. Overall: nice IPA - aroma is quite interesting. Pint at the Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell, London.

Craft Clerkenwell. Light haze on this gold beer, little white head. Palate is light and smooth with moderate carbonation. Smooth pale malt. Nice mix of what tastes like Citra hops and NZ hop floral hops. Touch of lime here as well. Really nicely integrated. Finishes smooth and a little dry. Super drinkable.

Again golden caramelly brown body, slightly lighter and hazier than itís lesser sibling with a similar bubbly film whiteish head. Nose is more upfront with sweetness and grassyness - I asked if it had been dry hopped (apparently not). Gritty pine and again watery veg with the ABV coming through to crush the previous biscuity backbone and whip up the sweetness much more. Bitterness is up a few notches too, soft carbonation maybe holds things back in the final third more than youíd like. Very fresh throughout, grassy/piney - the usual relative pointers with a warming ABV.

Cask, Guildford Arms, Post MTB/Launch Night, Edinburgh

Leighton (18222) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Cask at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Pours clear gold with a lingering, white foam head. Nose of tangerine and cat pee. Medium sweet flavor with juicy citrus fruits, lightly bready pale malts. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, good and juicy citrus, light pine needles, a bit more aged urine. Solid.

Scopey (12247) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Cask at Craft Clerkenwell. It pours golden yellow with a small white head. The nose is pungent hoppiness, pine, earth, grapefruit, touch of farmyard and resin. The taste is pine, bitter, earth, zesty citrus, grapefruit, resinous and a touch of alcohol with a dry bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Little bit cloying perhaps. Would love to have this on keg....

Stuartyboy (1415) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2013
On tap at hanging bat fresh and aromatic beer strong mix of citrus and tropical fruit however hop flavour is raw and strong giving early and prolonged bitterness decent but could of been great

[cask at the Guildford Arms, Edinburgh] Slightly hazy golden amber with a small, but persistent, head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, grassy hop and orange and grapefruit citrus. Caramel, sweet toffee and orange on the flavour, it carries the alcohol well. A good IPA, consensus was that it would do very well on keg [10052013]
