On cask at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Dec 2011 - Good and hoppy, with a rich boozy kick at the end. Feels heavy and oily in the mouth, but the pine notes seem to clear that. A good one to have in passing, but not one to spend a session with... which I did. With bad memories.

Should like this but it doesn’t quite work in my mind - the hop flavour is muddy and it’s a little too sweet. Needs more work to be in Halcyon space...

Miksu (4838) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 15, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co, London. Slightly hazy amber color. Thick juicy tropical fruity aroma with mango, grapefruit and fresh pine. Rich grapefruity and lemony taste with nutty maltiness and some petrol. Full bodied with smooth oily palate. Great.

Cask, The Interval Cafe, Sheffield. Slightly hazy gold, intense aroma of orange rind mingled with astringent resin and clove. Syrupy, honey and give ginger come through. Long pepper and honey finish.

superflyguy (421) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2011
decent effort from thornbridge. big aroma of hops. quite fruity, not in a usual way though. quite tropical. takes you back to the beach! the flavour has more of the same , but more subdued and the malty backbone and bitterness kick in along with a little sweetness and caramel. cask. blind jacks. knaresborough

Pours amber with a small white head. Aroma is malt, heavy flower and earthy notes. Flavour is malt, heavy flower, alcohol and fruit.

jackl (3867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Cask. Big DIPA from the lads at Thornbridge coming in at 8.5% ABV. Caramel roasted heavy malts support a massive hoppy symphony of flavor. Polished? Absolutely not. But this is definitely what I look for in a pint.

In cask al Cask Pub & Kitchen, Londra, una ottima double IPA, forse un po’ pignazza

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2011. Pours a clear and copper beer with a weak offwhite head. The aroma is malt and hops with peach and citrus. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a really good beer.

RBESG August 2011, shared at The Kernel. Cloudy amber with a small white head. Sweet fruity aroma with pine and peach. Sweetish fruity flavour with lots of pine hops. A bit raw bitterness.
