Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. Moderately sweet with some white sugar, tangerine, faint alcohol and pine needles. Light bodied with fine carbonation; pretty good condition. Sugary finish with basic white bread and some juicy citrus. OK.

Theydon_Bois (8746) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Gravity dispense at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14 as GB ’Sommer’ IPA. Lightly hazed golden with moderate off white spotting. Nose is floral, faint citric peel, mango pulp, perfumed effect. Taste comprises mandarin, sweet licks, perfumed tones, light pine. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with a little hop bitterness. Average IPA but drinkable stuff if a little sweet and floral in places.

On tap. Dark amber pour, small white head. Not much nose, slightly malty. Taste is caramel-like malts, with notes of hops.. Good beer, but not really what i was expecting from an IPA. Average carbonation, medium body.

MadRobin (1964) - Silver Spring, USA - FEB 24, 2014
On tap 4 oz. taster at Gordon Biersch in Rockville, MD. This may be a different beer than the typical Gordon Biersch IPA. Very hazy, amber-yellow with an off-white head and very good lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine, mango, guava and caramel. Taste of citrus, tropical fruit, pine and caramel. Medium body and medium carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
