jackl (6779) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Cask @ CPK. Light golden straw color with a tiny white head. The nose is light citrus, grass, some subtle pine. Faint. The taste is light malty strawberry and some lemon wood. More straw. Light body. Overall, an OK APA. Nothing spectacular.

jaghana (5326) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - APR 9, 2012
Bottle 50cl, a clear yellow beer with good head. Nose is very hopy on grass and hay. Aroma is medium malty with a huge hops bouquet, very grassy and hay with high bitterness, grapefruit notes, well done beer and quite drinkable.

Beersiveknown (4918) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 22, 2012
Hazy amber with fluffy off-white head a slight citrus aroma. Gentle carbonation, sweet malt and some lemony hops. Quite difficult to taste after human cannonball...

JohnRMurdoch (4229) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Cask @ CASK Pub & Kitchen. Hazy amber brown colour, not much head. Resin, grain & mixed fruit aroma & flavour. Dry aftertaste. Quite smooth. Quite unusual.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2008
Cask at Green Man, Ashbourne, Derbyshire. Pint. Everyone else watching Olympic cycling. Dark gold with a small white head. Citric hop aroma and some grassiness, with a buttery malt background. Sweet, oily malt taste. Mid to strong bitterness. Liked it. But, sorry, lads, I only rated it 3.6.

BeerViking (3909) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2009
Full bodied with aromas of hop and citrus, lots of dry bitterness, malt and orange on the palate. Satisfying and thirst quenching.

minutemat (3841) - Shrewsbury, 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.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 21, 2012
On cask at The York Tap. Pours a dark golden colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of pine, caramel and barley. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mildly bitter. OK.
