Cask at The Cellar, Chester. Slightly hazy golden. Long-lasting white head. Aroma is a gorgeous tropical fruit cocktail. Slightly grassy too. Taste is equally juicy, fairly dry and only slightly bitter. It’s incredibly drinkable. This is exactly how I like my IPAs and it’s clearly in great form here.

Bottle, thnx to minutemat for sending me this. Pours a murky blonde beer with a nice amount of bright white head on top. Aroma has pine needles, fresh citric touches and is really appealing. Almost like a West Coast IPA, so much citrus and pine influences are present in this beer. Flavor is moderately bitter, very citrussy again but has a slight bittersweet aftertaste. Nicely balanced, long, bitter aftertaste. Decent carbonation going, overall a nice IPA.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Really enjoyed this: cask half-pint at the 24th Shrewsbury CAMRA Beer Festival on 6th Nov 2014. Golden pour with a white cushion for a head. Not as citrusy as I expected, the flavours and aromas are there but subtle and controlled. The alcohol is well hidden by the depth of body and flavours. Got my vote as the beer of the festival.

MarkoNm (1033) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - OCT 27, 2014
Pours a dirty brown color, hazy, topped with small whit head. The aroma is very pleasant - citrusy hops, fruity notes. The taste starts fruity, followed by an extra pleasant and decent hoppy bitterness. Very enjoyable.

Bottle from the shop at the pheasantry brewery. Gold with white head. Thick and fruity IPA with citrus and big hops. Easy to drink go and highly drinkable.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Hazy orange; nice tropical fruit aroma; heavily hopped taste, more citrus than tropical; marmalade-like - orange and lime; whislt a certain amount of hoppy roughness is inevitable, this was sufficiently smooth to be an excellent IPA unlike so many attempts; really good.

330ml bottle from Beermerchants

BBE 01.03.15 - Pours clear golden with a smooth head. Aroma of alcohol, malts, citrusy hops and herbal grassy notes. Taste is strong, warming and malty with some citrus, grass and hints of wheaty notes. Finish is warming and malty with some hoppiness. Okay, but doesn’t feel very fresh.
