The_Bish (1124) - West Midlands, - APR 18, 2013
Drunk with Dom. There’s no magic rock in my cock. Though, that’s not what the laydeeeezzzz say. Ahem. Nicely hoppy and a bit of a treat. Abused the lovely man at the deli on the way home. Sorry Lewis, though your waistcoat was a bit poncey. Nothing wrong with poncey eh Dan?

Cask-conditioned at the Hope & Anchor, Bristol 4/3/2015. Golden in colour, with a decent, white, head. Aroma of grapefruit and apricot, with some grassy hops. Flavour had more tropical fruits, biscuity malts and a decent, dryish, finish. Good.

On cask @ the Haymarket. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - orange and grapefruit. Taste - more nice tangy orange. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - yep another well nailed ipa by Great Heck.

The_Osprey (2776) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Cask. Slightly hazy yellow, still, small bubbly white head. Aroma is cheesy, some mango-y hop. Body is medium to light, watery texture, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is pithy lemon, grapefruit, medium bitterness. Nicely flavoured but it’s borderline watery - something a bit thin about it. I don’t think it would take a great deal of poor condition to ruin this one.

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.
