Cask at JDWs in Surbiton. Fairly hoppy but very sweet with the alcohol noticeable too. Not a great balance but an enjoyably full body.

JonMoore (2022) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with frothy white head. Fresh hoppy aroma. Quite well balanced, grassy hops and sweet malts. Medium body, quite high carbonation. Tastes like a pretty decent bitter, not really an IPA. Still nice though.

Cask at The Bell in Waltham st Lawrence. A lot of sweetness and not enough hop to be a great ipa. Not bad just could be better.
