DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
Cask. Aroma is quite hoppy, (citrus) some notable malt as well, orange, slim custard head. Flavour is orange, with a decent malt accompanying. Light bodied, very well balanced, bitter west coast as can be for a UK offering. Seems to be a really fine rendition of an American IPA. Terrific!

Cask @ Gunmakers, London. Golden with a lively white head. Aroma and flavour of citrus hops and honeyish malt. Good bitterness that leads to a hoppy finish. I enjoyed this one.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Cask at GBBF 2009, 5th August 09. Very slightly hazy golden amber. Firm small white head. Fresh hop aroma hits you before you can get the glass to your lips! Lots of citrus & grapefruit. Classic modern golden ale but it doesn’t go "above & beyond".

KnutAlbert (6071) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2009
Cask at the Gunmaker’s Arms. Lovely. Fine malty base to a flowery hoppy flavour. Dust, roses, some fine, this is a bit Mid-Atlantic in style. Even served in a nice branded glass.

[Cask at the Good Food Show 2009, NEC, Birmingham] Gold, slight white head, moderate carbonation. A lovely refreshing herb-and-flower flavour with hints of citrus and a well-balanced gentle dry bitterness in the finish. Nice!
