chimpgibbon (286) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2013
Keg at the Bat. Meh not a huge fan. Overly bitter with less of but still present SWB dryness. Big improvement in palate to their other stuff tho. Good funky resinous quality but won’t revisit. Kernel handle this hop better.

Euston Tap. Keg. Light haze on this gold - amber beer. LIttle white head. Palate is smooth and slightly soft. Fine minerally carbonation. Odd beer! Not unpleasant, but definitely odd. Starts with sweetish malt and sweet grapefruit with a touch of orange. Turns to pretty bitter grapefruit and orange peel. Then light floral notes and whispers of candy fruits, violets and red berries! Somehow it all comes together. Finishes smooth with an aggressive bitter linger.

minutemat (1373) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Keg at Euston Tap. Yet another great full flavoured beer from Summer Wine, this time using Chinook, the hop that put Brewdog on the map with Punk IPA. It represents the hop very well with a full hop character and plenty of spiky citrus poking about your mouth, but perhaps not as explosive as Punk used to be.

Leighton (10534) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Keg at the Euston Tap - London. Pours mostly clear orange-gold with a fine, foamy white head. The nose holds dried citrus and minerals. Medium sweet flavor with fairly bredy malts, orange citrus, mild bitter grass and pine needles, some wet leaves. Medium bodied bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, some toasty leaves, dry bread, dried orange, bitter citrus rind. Decent IPA.

jamesie1857 (1347) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2013
Keg at Broadfield, Sheffield - Light amber with a solid lacing white head. Heavy hoppy aroma with grapefruit, peaches and tropical notes. Good hop heavy IPA, very deceptive ABV, nice rounded mouthfeel.

CraftBeerNick (842) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Keg at the Euston Tap, 7th August 2013. This is a nice IPA, thick mouth feel, the hop for me is not my favourite, but the beer is tasty. Good stuff
