at_the_hop (109) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle. Pours fairly murky - not the prettiest. Nose is pineapple, lime and an undercurrent of dank hops. Pleasant grapefruit and white grape flavour with a long if somewhat straightforward bitter finish. Soft but with a vicious, almost moussey carbonation. Nice but have to admit I was expecting something outstanding which this is not.

Towey1989 (1519) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2016
Keg at The Font, Manchester. A cloudy pale amber colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, some melon, slight apricot, a little caramel and subtle grassy, floral hops. Taste of grapefruit, melon, some orange, apricot, a hint of pine, a little lemon, lime, slight caramel and subtle grassy, floral hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A long, dry, citrusy, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. What a really well made IPA, really boozy and full of American and Czech hop bitterness. A huge grapefruit aroma. Enjoyed this.

MonsterMagnet (998) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle from minutemat, many thanks! Pours cloudy yellow/brown with a creamy white head. I suppose there was still quite some yeast in suspension when I poured. Lots of lime, orange, pear, pine, a bit doughy, caramel. Fairly sweet with a lingering bitter finish. Not the most complex, but a lovely creamy, mild but full flavoured IPA.

purpledragons (51) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2016
On cask at the Salopian Bar, Shrewsbury. Clear gold with a white head. A heady alcoholic aroma is immediately apparent. Some citrus (grapefruit) and orangey notes. Surprisingly easy to drink for its strength.
