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.

Clear medium amber with a large, frothy, mostly lasting, white head. Smells of hops, hay, caramel, with lots of citrus and pine. Super sweet taste with lots of hops, hay and flowers.

On keg at Firefly, Worcester.
Appearance - golden with a proportionate head.
Nose - lime and overripe melon.
Taste - more tropical with lime finish. Edging into lime marmalade.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A murky amber pour with a billowing white head; quite a gentle aroma with some grass from the Saaz hops coming through the citrus from the Citra; the Citra hops dominate the taste though, with a rich sweet grapefruit taste, and a creamy body, perhaps from the barley; the finish is smooth with a lasting grapefruit bitterness, and a pleasant rounded warmth. A subtle and very drinkable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky gold beer with frothy white head. Citrus aromas, and massive pine flavours with citrus in the background. Really good beer, and makes a nice change from hop bomb IPAs. Great stuff.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bottle via beer52. Always like to see a beer with live yeast. No malt/hop balance just an overpowering hop taste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Congress, Longton. Pours amber with off white head. Well hopped but a little too boozy so a little hard work. Decent IPA.
