Osprey87 (2049) - WALES - DEC 2, 2014
Keg at Draft House. Hazy orange, still, huge dense foamy off-white head, thick lacing. Aroma has lots of lemon tart up front, some metallic and plastic notes later on. Body is medium, spritzy carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste has more lemon, touch of butter, background floral, dry, soft bitterness with some straw. Very easy going pale.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
500ml bottle from Appleyards, Shrewsbury. Hope this is the right one! Drunk from the bottle. Nice fresh hoppy aroma. Taste is vibrant citrus, quite a lot of hops with some prickly grapefruit keeping things interesting. Very nice IPA.

AshtonMcCobb (2935) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 20, 2014
In bottle at the Craft Beer Rising event at the Drygate brewery. This was slightly overshadowed by the richer beers I drank in its company but it still delivered gentle citrus against malt in a balanced package. Imminently drinkable and tasty.

gegwilson (1472) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle from Booths in Ripon. Pours amber with an Off white head. A really nice hoppy IPA. There’s a sweet caramel base with some tropical fruit, pine and a little spice. Decent and well balanced.

jjsint (924) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Cask @ Urban Tap House, Cardiff. Gorgeous aroma of white grape, pineapple and pine resin. Juicy sweet taste but not quite the hop bomb promised by the aroma. Weak mouthfeel. I enjoyed it immensely even though it doesn’t quite deliver in the taste.
