JohnRMurdoch (4307) - 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.

minutemat (4147) - 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.

BeerViking (4100) - 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.

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.

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.

stravale (2723) - 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

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Cask at the Cask Pub & Kitchen, 2nd August 2010. Slightly hazy, light yellow. Strong grassy nose with hints of sulphur and eggs, almost meaty. Nice stuff.

jjsint (2255) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2016
Handpull cask at the Criterion, Leicester. Mid- to dark gold, clear with a decent tight white head. Slight orchard fruit aroma combined with some grain and wiid shavings. Lovely full taste with sweet apricot at the fore. Full body for a beer of this strength and you can really savour the natural carbonation. Not one of Thornbridge’s absolute best but solid all the same.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - 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.
