vipinvelp (2045) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2014
Dark clear orange with small off-white foam ring. Aroma is hoppy, but the taste is truly bitter. A nice English bitter, truly good beer. Lasting bitter aftertaste. (Gateshead 201404)

Cask six chimneys jdw Wakefield. Amber colour decent white head + lacing. Aroma is floral + citrus notes. Taste very unusual at first grows on u more u drink. Very very sweet starts folowed by some citrus herbs folwed by lingering hoppy bitterness. Good body low carbonation. Good stuff not sure how many I could drink in one sitting half is probs enough.

jookos (1907) - FINLAND - SEP 9, 2013
Cask@blackdoor (5.2 recipe actually..). Coppery cloudy. Good, slightly floral hoppy, somewhat nutty caramel malty. Soft full body, casky murkyness, herbal bitter. Really nice, reminds me of fuller’s, but more of a floral hop bouquet.

RichTheVillan (2410) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Retro review from Spring 2012 Wetherspoons Beer festival; calling trade descriptions again this is not an IPA.

Martin243 (740) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2012
Pint at the Cumberland, Newcastle. Golden orange with a white head. Quite restrained in its citrusiness, leant a bit more to tropical fruit flavours, but with well balanced sharpness. I was disappointed to have to move on, as I would have liked to spend a bit more time with this beer.

wimpyjoe (3468) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2012
Unpleasant lingering sour bitterness which is exaggerated by the ales strength.

berkshirejohn (4376) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2012
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. ABV 5.2%. I was expecting more from this, the ABV certainly doesn’t make its presence felt. Poured amber with a ring of white head; a light fruity aroma; a light body with a sweet tropical fruit flavour; and a soft, slightly musty, bitterness to finish. I expect more from something at this strength that calls itself an IPA.

alenm (18) - Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
UPDATED: APR 19, 2012 Little aroma, on the light side for the strength, small hit of hops on the intake, slightly more drinkable than the average IPA
