Tap. Hop, Sheffield. Clear, dark gold. Thin, lasting, white head. Juicy white grape. Fusty orange. Tad of spice. Drinks juicy sweet. Fruity, light chewy bitter. Still crisp, though. Bittersweet close. Some spice. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled at the Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Golden, thin pond of head. Smells good - Pacific Jade maybe? Taste is not quite up to the aroma, but is certainly fruity - raspberry, blackberry. Some bitter green leaf notes also and a thimble of sherbet on the finish, which is quite agreesive. Lacks subtlety, but a flavourful UK IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half-pint, keg at The Hop in York. Clear golden coloured body. Bubbly ring at the surface. Fragile lacing. Fruit and coffee on the nose. Flavours of mid-tart berries, hints of grapefruit and a touch of bitter coffee grounds to the ending. Medium bodied. Interesting and different. Quite alright (11.07.2014).

For the sake of the social interaction just numeral ratings and/or some highlighted attributes. Nice overwhelming fruitiness, balanced.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at the Furnace Inn (Derby)
With a name like that I had to give this one a try. For the low risk cost of £2.00 I soon had a half pint to sample. The result was an excellent American style IPA that was very drinkable. There are very few bad options at the Furnace Inn.
Aroma / Appearance - A golden carbonated base bubbles with a sparkling texture. Like a bright champagne it bubbles away though the stiff white head is different than a brut. Fresh lemons, roses, peaches, and white grapes are both fruity and sweet at the same time.
Flavor / Palate - Peaches, lemons, and roses start the taste profile with a bang. Bright and hoppy almost immediately it sticks the throat. The malts, while not overpowering, do bring it a great balance. I would drink this more often if I had to spend more time overseas as it is almost like a taste of home in UK soil.
