Acid303 (463) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - JUL 5, 2015
On tap @ Barcelona Beer Festival. 1/2 Pint. Pours golden with a big off-white frothy head. Lemon and tangerine on the nose, some tropical fruits as well. Too much malt on the flavour, fruits also. The bitterness on the palate does not linger. Medium body, average carbonation. Not bad, a little bit disappointing though.

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 (460) - 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.

jjsint (1387) - 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.

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.
