jackafholmes (208) - - JUL 31, 2014
Cask from the stags head sheffield. Pale amber ale with a creamy white head, thick lacing. Citrus aroma abound, orange lemon some grapefruit too. Bitterness dominates. Nice subtle carbonation, medium body. A good apa.

wimpyjoe (3908) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Golden with a thin creamy head. Hopped with a high fruity sweetness - and too sugary to comfortably enjoy.

stravale (2101) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 24, 2014
Cask @ The Hallamshire House, Sheffield [210314] [From memory as notes lost]
Has soft citrus tropical notes and similar flavours. Fairly hoppy, with soft sweet fruity malts, but not as hoppy as Kipling. Was quite decent as I recall...remember scoring it 3.4

minutemat (1638) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Cask @ The Dolphin, Shrewsbury. Pretty uninspiring and quite mild for an American pale. Citrus is there, nice cool & smooth with some lemon and a touch of tangerine but it just lacks some bite.

Theydon_Bois (8695) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Cask at the Cask, Pimlico, 308/08/13. Another Thornbridge catch up rate ... surely I’ll run out of these soon ! Almost clear pale golden with a thin white head. Nose is citrus fruit, thinhops, melon, light piss. Taste comprises toasted malts, orange, grass, melon. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry finish with a little hop bitterness. Drinkable APA perhaps more GB than others of this ilk.

ACD (637) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 27, 2013
Cask pint at Porterhouse, Temple Bar. Light Amber pour. Orange, light caramel, and herbs on the nose. Pithy grapefruit comes alongside the orange in the taste - quite juicy initially but then overtaken by light caramel and woody malt notes and a bit of pine. Lingering earthy, herbal bitterness as well as residual pine flavour. Tasty stuff.

Scopey (6865) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2013
Cask at the Sheffield Tap. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is zesty orange, tangerine, Irn Bru, wood and some urine. The taste is pine, oat, grainy, grass, light sweetness, orange and tangerine with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smooth and pretty drinkable.

Rasmus40 (11203) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2012
Cask @ The Wharf, Aalborg. Hazy golden with a small off/white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and rather hoppy - peach and citrus. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Dry and moderate bitter finish. 251212

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2012
Cask @ The Wharf Winter Cask Ale Festival. Pours a golden yellow with a small white lace. Aroma is quite hoppy with notes of orange, tangerine, grapefruit, slight tropical fruits, grassy notes and is fairly juicy with some sweet malt. The flavor follows the nose with nice juicy hop flavors, again orange, tangerine, grapefruit, slight topical fruits and grassy notes with those sweet malt flavors. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty nice and sessionable APA.

CraftBeerNick (896) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2012
Cask at PSBH, 30th August 2012. This was OK strong after taste, not the best from Thornbridge
