Pretty strong IPA...pours caramel, translucent. Piney up front wiht a bitter crisp end. Malt body tastes like it has some rye to it; it’s substantial without being over powering. Good dry finish.

Can @The foot of the walk, Leith. pours golden/amber with a thin white head which goes quite quick. Citrus on the nose with a dollop of floral notes as well. While bitter it was not over powering and it was all the better for it.

Can at Square Peg, Birmingham. Excellent IPA. Classically West Coast - or so I thought, until I read the description. Reminded me of SN Torpedo I think. Great balance of hops and sweetness. Slight resin. Feel real good on me tongue.

Can from Alexander Graham Bell.
Appearance - golden with a nice fluffy head.
Nose - grapefruit and mandarins, possibly tinned.
Taste - more grapefruit and pith too.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a very dry finish.
Overall - good but possibly a little too palate-rupturingly dry for me.
