harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
Cask handpull at Coach & Horses, Dronfield. Gold with lasting beige head. Fantastic APA style hops. Leafy hop. bit piney in mouth. Piney hop builds on finish. That is great. Great condition. Outstanding hop is piney and drying. Very drinkable. "Gosh" is all I could say.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, 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.

imdownthepub (13389) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Coach & Horses, Dronfield, Derbyshire. Gold with white head. the Thornbridge signature of citric, bittersweet, grapefruity hops is to the fore here with a light, dry malty background. A very decent beer indeed.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
2010-08-02. Lightly hazy yellow with a small foamy white head. Flavour is mild, very light bitterness throughout, subtle mild fruit with whispers of citrus, hints at lemon. 6+ Aroma is a bit interesting, mild lemon, lightly yeasty, muted straw. 6+ Smooth average palate. Mild but super drinkable, this might score more highly on a day by itself rather than in comparison to its Thornbridge brethren. Cask at CASK Pub and Kitchen, London
