Cask at George, Croydon. It pours clear golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is pissy hops, bitter-sweet aspect, tropical fruit, candy and freshly cut grass. The taste is crisp, bitter-sweet, mango, grapefruit, straw, floral, fruit salad sweets, resin and light alcohol bite with a lingering bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Balance, flavour and drinkability are all spot on. A delight to drink!

Cask @ Live and Let Live. Light golden color with a medium white head. The nose is big fruity mango, pick-and-mix sweets, fruit leather, peaches. The taste is light syrup with loads of summer orchard fruit flavors. More mango and some pineapple. Grassy hop finish. Lip-smacking. The body’s a bit syrupy, soft carbonation. Overall, a very good west coast-inspired English IPA with plenty of bold flavors.
