UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014
Sept, 2011 Bottle from Beers of Europe. Initially soft, juicy and fresh. Lots of lively, pleasant citric notes. It’s a fragrant summer’s day. Then the bitterness comes in, and settles down like an uninvited troll. Way too many hops for my personal preference. Not my thing at all. [2.0]
June 2012 Coal Hole, The Strand. With Nuffield. Citric lovely. Soft. Blonde. Toffee. [3.0]

Bottle: I had heard good things on this ale and had high expectations the bottle version tasted like a strong fizzy lager - would never buy another. Tried on Cask at Euston Tap, this was better.

Tap @ stem & stein - pours a clear pale gold. Aroma is faint citrus & yeast. Taste is metallic and mildly bitter. The bitterness lingers so the beer becomes more bitter as you drink it. Its OK, a bit simple and one note for me.

bottle from Waitrose Sidmouth. Hazy, rather pale yellow colour with a mid-sized head. Lovely hop aroma. Medium-bodied, solid malty base, rather dry palate, lots of spicy hops but not as hoppy as other IPAs, especially US ones. Delicious anyway.

Cask at GBBF2011 delightful example of the style. Full, rounded, refreshing, well conditioned. Citrus aroma and flavour almost overwhelming. Great British beer at a great British beer festival. Bravo!
