Craft. Clear amber beer, small cream coloured head. Palate is soft but with a stinging carbonation lurking. Nice sweet hops! Sweet pine with sweet generic fruits - orange and peach most readily identifiable. Malt cream. Minerals. Crisp finish. Nice beer!

harrisoni (14850) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
On tap at Craft Islington. Clear mid gold with lasting white head. Yes now us a nicely hoppy ipa. Almost on the radox side of piney. Not a huge aroma. Sherberty hops in mouth. Just a crash of piney grapefruit and lemon. Pretty damn good and a sublime ipa from an English brewer. Lovely. More please barman. Hides abv well.

Keg at CPK, London. Pours clear, orange-gold with a fine, white cream head. Lovely dry pine and orange nose. Very smooth flavor, well rounded, light to medium sweet with touches of pine, toasted malts, orange and grapefruit. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, great balance, moderate sweetness, pleasant hop kick of pine, lightly toasted grass, tangerine and grapefruit. Excellent IPA.

Rune (9067) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2012
Tap at Craft Beer Co in Brixton, half-pint shared with Finn. Good amount of lacing down the glass. A few patches on the surface. Near-clear, amber coloured body. Fresh citrus fruits to the nose. Fresh fruity taste of pineapples and grapefruits added by apricot beneath. Fine lingering bitter ending. Medium bodied. A well-made and satisfying IPA (London, 04.11.2012).

Fin (8177) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2015
Bottle as Bear State West Cost IPA, from Beermoth, Northern Quarter, Manchester, purchased and consumed later at Holiday Inn Express, Oxford Road, after Godspeed You! Black Emperor gig on Friday 17th April 2015 I have poured this into a green glass so determining the colour is a tad awkward but I am guessing golden with a white head. a touch of pine on the aroma with some late citrus (grapefruit) coming through. Sweet and malty but not too malty and a bit dry. A dab of tropicana about this as well. Like it. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
