gegwilson (621) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013
Cask at the Richmond beer festival. A nice drinkable pale ale with little personality.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2013
Medium creamy offwhite head. Clear amber body. Dusty strawy fruity aroma with wooden notes. Dry-sweet dusty strawy fruity taste with earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dry resiny grassy aftertaste with dandelion notes. Lovely start, but very harsh. Still nice. (0.284l cask at The Wharf, Manchester.)

planky84 (1877) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2013
Gravity dispense at the CPFC beer festival, 2013. Gold pour with a white head. Vanilla and citrus aroma. Citrus and light malt flavour. Not too bad.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2012
Cask at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber colour with a thin broken head. The aroma is malty but weak. The flavour is very bitter and slightly fruity, but the aftertaste isn’t pleasant. This beer doesn’t really work as an American IPA for me. Time to revisit the hop selection.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2012
Cask conditioned handpump Far From The Madding Crowd Oxford 02/11/12. A golden coloured beer with an off-white wisp of head. A reasonably hoppy beer with obvious US hops. Some sweet chewy malts detract but it’s tasty enough.

AshtonMcCobb (2115) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2012
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours golden, no head - a friend then bought another pint and there was a head, so benefit of the doubt on this one. The nose is of light citrus and hay. The taste has more of the same. The palate is medium bodied with a tangy texture and a clean finish. Overall, solid but not worth having more than 2.

stravale (1883) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 6, 2012
Cask @ Haymarket, Edinburgh 021012
Amber clear, thick white head, good lacing
Aroma - faint citrus and pale malt, little aroma
Taste - light citrus bitter hops, mainly pale sweet caramel malts, soft flavours, soft zest, slight butterscotch malts, easy, alcohol not noticeable
Palate - soft carb, medium body, oily palate. Finish - soft sweet pale malts, bit of pale biscuit, fairly bitter linger
Overall - OK golden ale but not hoppy enough to be an APA

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Crown, Oxford. Gold with white head. I was expecting a heap of hops with this but they were very restrained, some orange citrus perhaps but only slightly, bitter, flowery, disappointing.

mr_h (2434) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2012
Cask by handpump at Haymarket Bar, Edinburgh - clear golden amber, bubbly white head, fruity citrus hop aroma, bitter citrus flavour, not at all sweet, moderate carbonation, good temperature

leaparsons (7794) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Golden with a thin foam. Aromas are leafy and peppery with lemon and grapefruit. Woody and herbal with melon and spices. Flavours are woody and dry with bitter grapefruit and citrus pith. Low malts with marmalade and green, peppery herbal notes. Quite resinous and tasty.
