UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 On tap at Triangle Wine Co. Pours a hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma is grassy, hoppy and a little citrus. Taste is citrus hops forward with an almost oak flavor in the end and lasting smooth bitterness. Body and texture are slightly above average. This is quite a nice surprise. I have never heard of the brewery but it’s something worth giving a shot. Recommended if you like IPAs or hoppy beers.

Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head...solid lacing and retention. Aroma has nice grass and light hoppy spice. Flavor has great hoppiness...fresh...grassy and spicy...solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and silky with a dry grassy finosh that is fresh and pungent. Very nice.

On tap at The Bruery, poured into taster. Hazy yellow in appearance with thin white head that settles to a persistent film. Leaves some lacing. Aroma is hop-forward with citrus, floral, and pine. There is a little grain, too. Hops carry the day in taste, too, with a moderate bitterness that is less than expected based on the nose. A thin ribbon of sweet malts is perceptible in the background. Nothing shocking in the palate: medium body, crisp texture, average carbonation, dry bitter finish.

Sampled on draft at Mekong. Clear straw pour with very ample pillow top white head. Nice clean citrusy hop With not any floral or fruity notes. Its kinda like an american hopped pale pilsner. not Too spicy. Interesting, but I’d rather just have them make sours...

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh). Pours a nice, clean, clear amber. Not a pleasant aroma, but doesn't taste bad. Clean taste (symbol could be Mr. Clean). Hops and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Tap at Proletariat, NYC, 25/11/13. Additional thanks to Puzzl for confirming which beer I’d had at a later date! Lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white head, good lacing ensues. Nose is tarte grapefruit, bitter orange, lemon sherbet, citric dipped straw, light funk. Taste comprises orange pith, grapefruit, toasted malt, tarte orange peel, grassy. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy finale. Decent, a little differnt form the Bruery, hopped up pils.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a golden yellow color with a thick white head. Nice aroma of lemon rind, pilsner malt and hard citrus candy. The flavor is big with lemon rind bitterness and lots of florals. A bit too intense with bitterness in the finish, but otherwise a top notch IPL.
