(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 20 Nov 2013) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with citrus, resin, grass, apricots and biscuity malt. Fruity, malty taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, resin, dried apricots and an impressive citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Tasty, fresh and quite bitter. Nice one.

Small creamy offwhite head. Slightly hazy yellow body. Floral resiny grape aroma with herbal notes. Dry-sweet resiny grape taste with floral wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish fruity orangey grape aftertaste with resiny spicy notes. Nice, drinkable, full of flavour. (0.284l cask at Marble Arch Inn, Manchester.)

allmyvinyl (4247) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Keg at Hanging Bat. Hazy golden brown with a good white head. Citrus, pine, grassy hops. Lots more hops coming through as it slips down. Bit one-dimensional to be honest, but not bad.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Cask at the Pelt Trader, Cannon St, 31/07/13. Lightly hazed golden with a medium sized off white cap, good lacing ensues. Nose is juicy hops, orange, light grapefruit notes. Taste comprises orange pith, light pine, grass. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, hop bitterness in a dry finish. Decent flavoursome low ABV cask IPA. Would happily session away on this baby!

Niall73 (1871) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Cask at Pelt Trader. Pours a slightly hazy gold with white head. Nice aroma - a sweet smelling tropical mix with pineapple and passion fruit at the fore alongside some caramel and a bit of dirt. Lots of toffee in the flavour. Lots. This gives way to fruits - orange and those mentioned already - before finishing with a decent, slightly earthy bitterness. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

stravale (2280) - 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
