SarkyNorthener (2384) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2014
Cask@the blackcountry arms, walsall. Slow settling golden amber beer with medium creamy head and patchy lacing. Aroma is hoppy with tangerine and citrus. Taste is orange pith, tangerine, juicy and a little sweetness in the finish. Medium bodied and chewy. Excellent, my sort of IPA, soft fruity flavours without all the pine resin.

ianwelby (541) - SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2014
Pale golden beer with the odd bubble and a decent foamy head. There’s a touch of bitter fruit in the aroma but it’s mostly caramel. The flavour is interestingly balanced. There’s a decent grapefruit-y, bitter fruit element but the malts aren’t blown out by it meaning there’s a balancing malty, biscuity touch. The aftertaste IS mostly the citrus but that’s no bad thing. It’s obvious that they’ve made an effort to balance this carefully and it’s worked. Very nice.

w_adwersarz (213) - Cracow, POLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Aromat bardzo ładny, białe owoce, ananasa dużo, mango. Barwa jasnego słota, klarowne. Piana od drobnych do dużych bąbelków, ładnie krążkująca na szkle. Wytrawne, lekko słodowe, z wyraźną choć lekką trawiastą goryczką.

danlo (1328) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear bright orangey golden colour, foamy white head leaving some lacing and aroma of lemon, grapefruit citrus, hop resin. Taste is biscuity malt with fruity peach, earthy citrus & pine bitterness. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry lingering woody bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (9945) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2014
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green, 29/03/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pithy citric twinges, chalky minerals, peach, mandarin, straw, juicy hop ring. Taste comprises juicy hops, orange pith, mandarin, light pine, straw, mango, tangerine. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, grassy hop bitterness drawing to a lightly drying conclusion. Solid hoppy cask offering.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2014
Fruity, amber, a fair bit of chewy caramel as well, and alcohol in the finish. Similar to the other pale, but more evidence of alcoholic strength in this one.
