3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask gravity at Colchester BF 2011. Gold thin white head. Sticky syrupy American hop aroma. Bit too syrupy and sweet on the hops I think. I had this next to the Harwich Town APA which was better. Not a huge difference in ABV but this is too sweet and syrupy whilst the Harwich Town was light and agile. Hops on this are ok but too sweet

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hand pulled cask at the Egham BF. Amber/gold with a white head and good lacework. A good crack at an APA but a little sweet at first. However, the US hops soon catch up with you and the overall impression led me to a second half. A very sound beer indeed.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned Gravity Dispense Peterborough BF. A copper coloured beer with no head. The aroma has good US hops but there’s an odd smoky note too. Taste is hoppy but again there’s that strange smoke which seems to have a floral quality. A real hint of parma violets add an odd feel to what is a good beer in parts, but has a strange undertone to it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask, Gravity at Banbury Beer Festival, Oxon, 07-05-09 Recommended to me by my dad on the Thursday evening, I had it a couple more times over the weekend. Pours light amber with the merest of haze. Good lemon peel and rind in the mouth and an immediate thrusting bitterness that really coats the tongue in a furry rasping numbness. This is very hoppy little number that finishes really quite dry, really likeable stuff. A7 A4 F8 P4 Ov15 3.8

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask conditioned at Banbury Beer Fest ’09. Gold with white head. You get straight in to the hop rush with this beer, lots of dry tangy, grapefruit and lemon notes right in to your face. The body is decent enough, there are well brewed out malts giving a dry biscuity background, but the hops are the thing. A beautifully set up beer that I hope to come across again.
