stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle from Beer Hive, Edinburgh [280513]
Amber, clear, bubbly rich frothy head, good lacing
Aroma - citrus hops, piney hop, soft resins, soft tropical fruits, good aroma
Taste - grapefruit citrus hops, zesty sweet fruits, nice bitter citrus zest hops, some tropical fruits, good fruity sweet pale malt background, lots of fruity hops, bitter grapefruit pith, great flavour
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, bitter grapefruit pithy palate, great soft mouthfeel and balance. Finish of bitter citrus, soft sweet fruity linger, some orange pith, dab of lemon
Overall - Excellent beer, really well balanced, great fruity zesty bitterness. Great condition for a bottled beer. I always thought this was inferior to Dobber which gets all the attention. This is, perhaps, just as good

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Golden color, hazy, with frothy head. A good hoppy Golden Ale, with more English yeast character than modern hop fruitiness. Dry and bitter.

zacgillbanks (2129) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
Bottles from Rehills, Newcastle and Chez Vin, Otley. A golden beer with a sharp grapefruit and floral hoppy flavour, a creamy mouthfeel, peppery notes and bitter woody finish.

prawlie (1104) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2013
Half pint at York Tap. Clear, golden, with a nice bubbly head. Bitter, well hopped, with a dry finish. Not entirely sure about it however, but still fairly good. Light IPA hop aroma. Drinkable but a little over-hopped.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - APR 30, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear dark yellow amber, thick loose frothy white head with light lacing. Soft earthy fresh cut grass, light pine, some tangerine on the nose. Soft sweet malts, pungent waxy floral stuff going on too with a beautiful squeaky clean juicy grapefruit finish. A lovely hybrid of US and UK styles. Wonderful.

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
On cask at The Holy Inadequate, Stoke on Trent. Pours amber with frothy head. A very refreshing ale that belies it’s strength. In your face with hops and a good IPA.

ration (1923) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 11, 2013
Summer 2011, England. Cask. Pours brown with a small head. Aroma grass, floral notes. Light bodied. Some side notes that indicate that this is probably not very fresh.

spacecube (760) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2013
From a 500ml bottle, light golden hazy brown. A small lacing and a lively carbonation. Some malty sweetness at the start, but all about the hops this one, pithy grapefruit with lemon zest, equally short dry bitter finish. Really nicely done. Crisp and very refreshing.
