SaintMatty (5110) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2014

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Light bronze. Aroma is fruity, tangerine, red currant, and marmalade, slight chewiness but then the hops jump up. Good fruity APA, even if the don’t call it that.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Cask @Malt and Hops, Leith. Pours golden with a slight haze and thin white head. Big fruit nose but with spruce/pine in there as well. Quite a bitter, grapefruit punch but the fruitiness that the beer has just gives it a boost

Martin243 (742) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Pint at the Isis Sunderland. Orange gold body with a thin white head. Resinous aroma. Old Satsuma, earthy conifer, slightly medicinal. Bitter finish. Another good ’un from Great Heck.

leaparsons (7988) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
Cask, The King’s Head, Leicester. Golden with an off white foam. Aromas are toasted malts with low woody pine and marmalade. Biscuit with brown sugar and bready yeast. Flavours are sweet, dry biscuit with bitter lemon and grapefruit. Piney with jammy fruit and spritzy yeast. Nice pithy bitterness to finish.

Cask@bridge bar bristol
Pale gold with lacing white head slight green apple in aroma and flavour, slightly chalky texture. Dry, not unpleasant, not an IPA!

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2013
Cask handpull, PO Vaults, Birmingham, 07/09/13. Slender loose white head over dusty orange gold. Nose old oranges furring with mould, Black Jack chews. Husky malt approaching smoke. Good stewed aniseed and old satsuma vibes; thistle sap, bags of hop character. Stood up to The Dog(Wired). Fair play.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Zesty citrus fruitiness leads to leafy hop resins in this quenching IPA.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the clear pale blond.
-The nose is more resinous than citrusy, oddly enough.
-A peachy touch appears in the middle.
-Hop profile is long and pleasant.
-Malts are quickly forgotten in this one.
-Mouthfeel is lean and clean.

On cask at The Horniman at Hay’s.
