jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, 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 (3487) - Strasbourg (France), 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.

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.

Cask @ CASK Pub & Kitchen. Hazy amber brown colour, not much head. Resin, grain & mixed fruit aroma & flavour. Dry aftertaste. Quite smooth. Quite unusual.

Beersiveknown (2473) - 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...

stravale (1883) - 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

wyzzywyz22 (1873) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Cask, Bodega, Newcastle Upon Tyne. This had a definite whiff of quality about it. Golden colour with a thin white head. Inticing aroma with bags of citrus and hop. Just knew I was going to like this. Very well balanced aromatic hop in the flavour and just very drinkable. Wish I could get this on a regular basis.
