RichTheVillan (2121) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2013
Keg at CBC Islington; clear dark copper pour with small foamy white head, citrus and pine aroma, very fruity taste grapefruit, peach & piney, decent mouthfeel very silky, drinks so easy for 10% + beer. Excellent launch event good to see the brewers dressed up.

maneliquor (2780) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2013
Tap at CBC Islington. Pours clear amber with a two finger beige head on top which slowly decreases to leave great lacing. Nose is sweet, pungent hops. You can smell its bitterness which is a good sign. A great deal of grapefruit and piney hops. Some sweet tropical notes coming through. Sweet tropical fruits - passion fruit, mango, lychee in the taste with some light pine and a heavy grapefruit finish. Lingering bitterness with not much heat at all. Sweetness is never too much. Surprisingly comes across quite balanced. Damn well made beer. Could have plenty of these (or at least try to)

Craft islington. Keg Hazy amber beer, little white head. Palate is smooth and a little soft with mild fine carbonation. Creamy malt base, a little caramel. Fantastic hops here - light tangerine and orange with lesser marmalade. Sweet pine, touch of grass and a whisper of skunk. Mild tropical fruits, tinned. Smooth finish. Marvellously drinkable.

BenH (2012) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Keg at cask p and k. Cloudy dark brown with off white head. Aroma is very resinous and piney, some mango, marmalade. Taste is extremely resinous, caramel, toffee, pine, bordering on molasses with so much resin. Thick and sweet with a punishing bitterness. Excellent dipa.

HogTownHarry (5983) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
August 17, 2013 - handpull cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. Looked great - hazy orange with a large and lasting creamy/rocky off-white head - gorgeous looking full pint. Aroma was just what I needed -alcohol, resin, spruce, citrus and decidedly alcohol - taste followed but quite floral - a big and unapologetic beer. Big-bodied, too, okay carbonation, reasonably long pithy fruity finish - packs a mid-level wallop. Great beer.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2013
Cask handpull at Craft Beer Co. Yes a little boozy and yes may be better on keg but this is good. Aroma of sticky hops. The carbonation on the mouthfeel may be better. Big pink grapefruit. Slightly syrupy toffee but excellent.

Niall73 (1049) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2013
Keg at cbc brixton. Not the cheapest half I'll ever buy! A murky browny yellow colour with a thin white head. Smells lovely - a lot of passion fruit! Medium body, slightly foamy in the mouth. It's fruity, goody and earthy with a nice but not overly boozy finish. Nice bitterness and some citrus and tonic on there too. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Tap at the Cask, Pimlico, 13/06/13 thanks to Josh. Lightly hazed orange amber with a thin white head that clears edgeward. Nose is caramel, bitter orange, hops, good pine blast. Taste comprises caramel malt, bitter hops, orange pith, grass, bitter grapefruit, bubblegum. Full bodied, fine carbonation - pitched expertly keeping this big boy drinkable, touch of booze but well integrated, dry finish with hop bitterness. A well balanced DIPA, great on the palate, ta Ryan !

Leighton (9830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2013
Keg at CBC Islington during the Siren tap takeover - London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fine, white cream head. Lemon and tangerine predominate in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with dry citrus fruits, pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming finish, sticky, with oily hops, dry tangering. Very tasty. Balance is better here than it is with the cask lime version.
