Sampled cask conditioned at Oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Amber colour. Flowery nose. Dry and hopy. Medium to light bodied. Well rounded. Nice, lingering bitter finish. An uncomplicated enjoyable IPA, very much in the British style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask gravity Notts BF 05. This beat both the Brewsters Hophead and Nottingham Rock Bitter in the SIBA bitter category, although I thought the other 2 were better. Deep copper colour. Nice hop/caramel. Not a lot of fruit. Caramel in mouth, with hoppy finish. Quite dry, bit tangy, bit of choc. Nice understated hop.

Cask conditioned. Amber, good white head and low condition. Good hoppy aroma with some low caramel, well balanced malt and hop in the mouth and a hoppy finish with some bitterness developing and a suggestion of roasted barley.

Cask Conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Golden beer with fluffy head. A thin acidic hoppy IPA. Lots of woody, pineleaf notes. Orange and lemons but overall a little too thin

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gravity cask at the Bree Louise. Pours clear gold with a slight, filmy white head. Aroma seems a bit weak thought there are faint notes of lightly toasted malts and citrus. Has an alright flavor, lightly sweet with some dried hay, orange peel faintly earthy bitterness. Light bodied with very fine carbonation. Finishes a bit flat with modest bread, citrus, grass and hay. An OK beer but doesn’t seem to be living up to its potential

in reality, a quite malty session bitter, not an IPA at all. Pleasant nonetheless. Starts fruity and a little sweet, but bitterness develops and carries through to the finish. Handpump, The Speaker, London SE1, April 2003
