Cask; Regular.
Citrus dominated IPA with a slight astringency in the first sip that warns you of what’s about to come and an enduring bitter finish (IBUs 65). Back end taste and aromas of tropical fruits from the New Zealand Kohatu hops with Dana hops giving the sensation of being smacked in the mouth with a jar of marmalade…. kinda like Bob Dylan on acid.

Draught @ BA Folkis. Not the fruitiest of IPAs nor the sweetest and not even very bitter. Some unusual hop notes here... white grapes, melon, red orange. Crisp. A bit dry. Medium, short lasting, bitterness.

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Cask in the Rook & Gaskill, York. Pours golden with a nice off white head leaving good lacing. Pleasant tropical fruit aroma. The taste has some good pineapple and mango going on. A little thin, but otherwise decent.

Holmen2 (2182) - NORWAY - MAY 6, 2015
Pint from cask at The Castle Hotel, Manchester, 07.05.15. Clear golden. Dense and persistent head. Strong aroma of lemon and lime marmelade. And Sevilla marmelade. Similar taste, combined with tropical fruits and considerable grapefruit bitterness in lingering aftertaste. Also a hint of malt and biscuits in taste. Round mouthfeel. Considerable quaffability.

jookos (3897) - FINLAND - APR 24, 2015
Cask@galows. Coppery. Citrus, light pine on node, pale malty. Bitter, grassy, green herbal flavour, grapefruity hops. Feels a bit harsh, edgy, too grassy messy.

Hermod (4964) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2015
Cask @ Angleterre. Clear deep amber, thick white head. Caramel on the nose, fudge. Flavor reminds me of Werther’s original candy, later more fruity hops kicking in. More like an English IPA perhaps. Dry finish. Not really something I get that excited about.
