Cask, Dean Swift and Port Street Beer House. Great IPA, beats Punk IPA, similar, not such a strong aroma as Punk. Beautiful beer.

Rating number 666, (cue evil laughter and thunder and lightning crashing all around me and a spot of Bach on the on the ornate Gothic organ). Very apt beer to for the evil rating. Anyway, this was tasted at the NWAF, Manchester. Bright yellow pour with a white head. Aromas of tangerine, tropical fruit, lemon zest. Lots and lots of fruit. Sharp hop kick. Citrus and herbs. Fruit laden mouthfeel. Refreshing. Wonderful stuff!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2012 Cask at Cloisters. Golden beer with a medium white head. lots of sweet passionfruit on the nose, The bitterness works well with the passionfruit flavour, Oily mouthfeel and lingering bitterness : ) Also had this on keg at the Holyrood 9A, this really stands up on keg with plenty of hop aroma and nice bitterness. A lovely beer!

Majek (323) - Ząbki, POLAND - MAY 9, 2014
Hazy, orange colour with big, frothy head. Some lacing. Fantastic aroma of fruits (lots of mango, apricots and grapefruit). Really pleasant nose. Taste is also very good, lots of fruity and malty sweetness mixed with citrus hoppiness. Really good balance. Low to medium carbonation. Medium body. Very good, full of fruity note IPA.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 Cask at Dean Swift. Hazy amber-gold with a creamy lacy off-white head. Coy aroma - low-level pungent citrus zest and solid oily malt. Taste is big-time grapefruit bitterness, noticeable alcohol, solid malt. Solid body, decent carbonation, long bitter finish; very good. Re-rated - at craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Fuckin spectacular.
