On tap at CPK. Pours a clear golden colour with a big white head. Long lasting foam and lot of carbonation streming off the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hop forward on the fruity side, with pineapple and citrus. Taste is similarly fruity but not overly bitter. Grapefruit and peaches with a touch of acidic note in the finish. Medium mouthfeel and well carbonated

Keg London, poured in a tulip and enjoyed outside in the sun. Yellow very little head. Low carbonation, mid body, oily texture. Malty sweetness to start very piney from the hops, dry bitter finish with some astringency. Authentic copy of a West Coast IPA. Nice.

Bottle. Archer Road Beer Stop, Sheffield. As "Bear State". Clear gold. Bubbly, messy, lasting, white head. Lovely, fusty orange. Peach. Pine resin. Something a little tart, along the lines of red gooseberry. The sweetness comes across as vanilla, and chewy toffee. Zesty, fruity, sweet, and smelling fantastic. Drinks soft, chewy, spicy, fruity bitter. Full bodied, but fresh. Finishes lingering, slightly chewy bitter. Lovely.

Tap @ CBC Brixton. Pours hazy gold with white head. Earthy fruity hoppy aroma. Grapefruit, citrus, some earthiness, some bubblegum and pleasant bitter finish. Well balanced, plenty going on and tasty.

On Keg in Cask P&K. Pours russet orange, crystal clear, medium white cream head with thick white lacing on glass. Nose is tropical fruit, mango, papaya, touch of passion fruit and pineapple, then it’s prickly hop, nettle, and caramel malt. Taste is prickly bitter green hop, and ctirous bitter fruit. Not so much soft fruit in this and the finish is a prickly green hop, pine and spice on the tongue.
