DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Keg, The Lincolnshire Poacher, Nottingham, 11/04/14. Dusted orange gold with a brief suggestion of head. Call me a Luddite but keg never matches cask. That minor grumble aside this is a beauty and easily the best beer of the day; dragon fruit and guava armpit hop without heat; gentle carb and husk backdrop. Kumquat and white pear. Sweaty, cheesy perfumed cat and armpit aroma. Yessir.

Niall73 (1051) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
On tap at CBC Brixton. Pours a cloudy straw colour. Light, fresh aroma with passion fruit and a touch of piss. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Marmalade, sherbet, pine, lemon, dry woodiness, some tonic water... Tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrold (732) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. 7.3%. Hazy, pale amber. Sticky, white, thickish, head. Peachy. Jammy. Light, grapefruit juice. That Kernel, digestive dunked in sweet tea, maltiness provides a lovely balance. Soft, sweet palate, prior to the pithy bitterness kicking in, ties it all up. Daft easy to drink.

Keg in CBC Clapham. Colour is hazy, rusty amber, large white foam head. Nose is very hoppy, grapefruit, orange, caramel, biscuit malt, green leaf hoppy, minerally, pine. amarillo is a bitter green leafy piney hop, but there’s some nice fruit too. This is a really good IPA.
