HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
On cask at Southampton Arms - August 19, 2011. Quite a hazy amber-gold, so full itís hard to judge the head - creamy/frothy white? Quite a hoppy aroma - catty, resin, citrus - with a florally sweet grain backing, a hint of black tea. Taste is hugely bitter, citrus zest, grassy and fairly acidic/catty as well - that just buries the malt completely, and alcohol might be there, but itís so bitter, could be up to 6%. Almost a perfect cask mouthfeel and body - solid, not thick, somewhat astringent, acidic and dry - long pithy grapefruit finish and linger, really coats the palate - lasting impression, grapefruit with grassy overtones.. Quite robust, a winner for me.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2011
Cask - The Southampton Arms, London. Pale copper-amber body, bubbly, mostly lasting off-white head. Juicy tropical citrus fruits on the aroma. Tangerine, peach, and a warm bitter grapefruit note. A hefty, fuller mouthfeel than the typical English golden; quite hefty for the style. Soft, medium, chewy body, tongue-coating pale malt sweetness, nicely balanced & moorish with a modest, lingering finishing bitterness.

EdKing (1754) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2011
Cask. Euston Tap. Pour golden, clear. Nose it very citrousy. Grapefruit, lemon, some biscuit malt. Taste is big firm grapefruity citrous, and then some subtle biscuit malt, honey. Packs a hop punch but nicely balanced. Wouldnít call this a golden ale as itís clearly US IPA. Very good interpretation of the style.

Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sticky bitter finish, lingering pee, grass, mild pine, light toast. Excellent.

Gasperoo (9) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2011 does not count
Supped from cask at The Craft Brewing Co., Clerkenwell. This is an almightily powerful US style IPA. Every sip is packed full of intense hops, with flowery vanilla and citrus tones. Dry as a bone with an oaky wine-like finish. Like 3 normal pale ales distilled into one. Redemptionís best beer yet... they can do no wrong!
