Tried this a few times on cask, and can’t fault it, would be interesting to try it on keg tough. Overall, an itInteresting English IPA with a slight American hop twist. Not as big on the hops as some of it’s American cousins, but still packs a hop punch.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 Gravity cask at The Salopian, Shrewsbury. Quite a good blend of Citra, good strength, medium body, medium bitterness.. quite a nice pint indeed.

Pale yellow appearance, little head. Best IPA I’ve had. Strong fruity flavour on impact, settles to a fantastic heavy aftertaste (for an IPA). Great beer.

Bright clear gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate, fresh and a little dry. Light malt base. Fabulous hop fruits here. Hardly any bitterness. Piney sweetness. Loads of tropical fruits. Mango dominates but there is orange, pineapple and melon too. All sorts of other fruits well buried. Finishes semi dry. Superb!

Niall73 (1696) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2013
Cask at CBC Brixton. Pours a straw colour with little carbonation. Great aroma - big sweet lychee smell. It's lovely - lots of sweet lychee in the flavour too which give way to a grapefruit citrus bitterness to finish. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On cask at The Bow Bar, Edinburgh.Pours almost clear dark golden, small white head. Aroma is strong citrus and pine. Taste is good fresh hops, still mellow and smooth,pine,lemon and grapefruit. Light sweet finish with a bitter fresh piney bite at the utter end. Good.

Rune (7999) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2013
Cask, half pint at North Bar. Filmy layer blanketing the glassware. Bright golden body colour. Dried fruity nose with apricot to the fore. Grapefruit and orange flavours promoting a mild marmalade impression. Mid-dry bitter tail. Medium bodied. Well-made Brit IPA (Leeds 01.07.2013).

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This is a light golden coloured beer with a thin white head. It has orange marmalade and sharp citrus flavours with bitter pine on the finish. Very good indeed.

jmgreenuk (4258) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2013
Cask at the Beacon Hotel, Sedgely. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is hoppy with citrus fruit. The flavour is grassy nettle hop bitter with some spicy pepper and liqourice on the palate. It’s a rather rich beer with loads of complex flavours. A winner from Oakham.

Nose doesn’t prepare you for the massive citra hit! Lovely. Quite malty but balanced with powerful hoppyness.
