Cask at the Philharmonic, Liverpool. Pours a clear gold with a thin but consistent white head. Aroma is citrussy hops and slightly peppery. Taste is hoppy and citrus, tropical fruit and smooth. Slight carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Tasty!

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2014
(Bottle): Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, pine, tropical fruit juice. Flavour is a big fruit bowl, bitter citrussy flavours combining well with sweet, juicy flavours. Has a nice bitter kick and is overall very refreshing. Just seems to be lacking some balance.

Osprey87 (1579) - WALES - MAY 14, 2014
Cask at the White Horse, Soho. Clear orange, still, small foamy beige head, droopy lacing. Aroma - tropical, cheesy hops. Body is light, quite foamy yet also smooth. Taste is caramel, touch of mango, lime, soft bitterness. Aftertaste has lots of demarara sugar. Quite drying. Flavoursome cask ale. As much as I love cask ale, I think this one would be better on keg.

Cask gravity at Reading BF 2014. Hazy gold amber colour lasting white head. Piney grapefruit aroma. Decent grapefruit apa ipa. It’s amazing for a UK brewer to produce something like this outside of the Bermondsey run. Hoppy fruity good ipa.

Cask at the Chequers, Oxford, Saturday 12th April 2014 Had this shortly after meeting the legend that is Sir Roger Bannister ay Blackwells, Oxford. Hazy gold, bittersweet a tropical fruity nose this is repeated in the mouth, wonderfully hoppy but carried forward on a wonderful sweet silky smooth malty seam of goodness, utterly marvellous.
