DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
This is a good Summer Wine brew. Still aggressively hopped but not as harsh as some. Falls down a little on the classic combination of dry beer and dryer NZ hops. But still a good drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jackl (4797) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Keg @ CPK. Deep amber orange color with a tight white head. The nose is peaches, light sweet grape and floral hops. The taste is mellow sea grass, yeasty peach and jammy fruits. The body’s light, nimble, with active carbonation. Overall, impressive, flavorful, and easy to drink.

Scopey (7183) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Cask at CP&K. It pours hazy golden yellow, wit a thick white head. The nose is orange sherbet, hay, farmyard, grass, melon and pear. The taste is spice, hay, straw, resin, grass, floral, citrus pith, pear and melon, with a long, very bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. A good cask IPA.

Light to medium sweet flavor, plenty of dry orange rind, some toasty grass, lots of dry straw, some mild tangerine. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Medium sweet to finish, lightly drying with lots more citrus rind, light grass, faint pee, straw and tangerine. A nice British IPA.

Big tropical fruit aroma. Off white head. Grapefruit, maramalade taste, bit of malt. Quite bitter all the same, nice IPA.

BrotherLogic (252) - California, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Another sw beer I really wanted to like but again it just didn’t do it for me. Aroma is all tropical fruit but it’s too bitter for the abv the hop flavour is muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
