Pours clear and golden with very little head and slight lacing. Aroma is tropical fruits (pineapple, mango), straw and honey. Taste is bitter grassy hops with hints of citrus. Light carbonation. Good but not great.

sound67 (389) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2015
[York Beer Festival, 2014] - Great Heck Shankar IPA, 5.9%, kräftig tieforange, große! luftige Krone. Intensives Aroma nach Grapefruit, etwas Fichtennadeln, Kräuter. Gesamteindruck fruchtig. trotz Alkoholgehalt eher leicht, noch wässrig, mittleres Mundgefühl. Im Antrunk nach dem fruchtigen Aroma zunächst überraschend bitter und hopfig. Grapefruit vorhanden, wird aber von Kräutern und Fichtennadeln überlagert. Zur Mitte noch bitterer, jetzt auch etwas harzig. Frucht verschwindet ganz. Erst in den Abgang hinein wieder leichte Grapefruit, aber hopfige Bitterkeit bestimmt weiter. Nachhall relativ intensiv, anhaltend hopfenbitter, floral und leicht fruchtig. Gutes IPA, dem etwas mehr Körper nicht schaden könnte.

Theydon_Bois (12567) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2015
Cask at the Euston Tap, 14/05/15. Clear light golden with a moderately appointed off white covering. Nose is citric peth, melon, tangerine, light candyfloss. Taste comprises bread dough, melon, tangerine, orange pith, lemon rind, grassy notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness present. Decent enough cask IPA.

Pours a light golden with a smooth white head. Smells kind of like dishwater. Taste starts sweet and moves to a nice bitterness.

jjsint (1331) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle from Merchants 1688, Lancaster. Dark gold/copper, decent carbonation. A bit of white head. Pune/resinous aroma. Pure unadulterated hop. Taste is more muted: surprisingly sweet, hinting at maple syrup. A bit of bitterness in the unexpectedly dry finish. Perfect amount of carbonation. A joy to drink, and a reminder why we rate beer.

jamestulloch (2029) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Low carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, minerals and earth. Flavour of lime, leaves and bitter hops. Thin body with a light mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A crisp, hoppy beer.

Sjohnh (427) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
That’s good. Rusty amber colour, tiny white head. Big tropical fruit and orange aroma. Fairly light body, slightly oily, would prefer it a bit thicker and creamier to be a great. Lovely taste though, fruit salad, led by orange and peach, with a touch of caramel before a strong bitter finish. Well carbonated.

Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Amber looks with a small lingering white head. Promising piney hop and citrus in the nose. The sweetish flavour unfolded along similar lines with good tropical fruits mingling with a solid malt spine. Very drinkable and tasty stuff. Let’s raise a glass to Ravi.
