harrisoni (13632) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2012
Cask handpull at Tap East Stratford. Clear yellow gold colour with thick white head. Aroma of sweaty citra hops. Wow that is hoppy. Creamy mouthfeel. Wow that is hoppy as hell. Good though. My god that is good. All the Oakham easy drinking know how with a hop kick from the devil himself. Seriously bitter on the finish. Thats pretty damn good. Lovely. 4.3/5

Scopey (6726) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Originally on cask at The George, Croydon. It pours golden yellow, with a decent off-white head. The nose is sweet orange, tangerine, lime, sweaty sock, urine, rhubarb and custard cream sweets and grass. The taste is resin, juicy orange, mango, tangy marmalade, big hop bite, spice, pepper, pine and alcohol warmth, with a big bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Massive flavour and drinkability. The best cask IPA I’ve ever had.... I have now sampled this sucker on numerous occasions and it surprises just how truly brilliant it is. Crisp, flavoursome, well-balanced and eminently drinkable. Wow!

evergreen0199 (2008) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Cask at St Albans beer festival 2011. A golden coloured pour with a small white fluffy head on top. Healthy hoppy, fruity aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit and really quite bitter. Clearly a well made beer but too bitter for my palate, their Dream Catcher is more my kind of thing.

Cask at the Cambridge Blue, Cambridge England 13th August 2011. Gold with thin white head and a little lacing. Wildly fruity and hoppy. Grapefruit and grass early and late, with an explosion of fruity hoppiness in-mouth.The finish is richly hoppy and satisfyingly intense. Exquisite.
