4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(tap - keg) Amber coloured, hazy, with an average fizzy white head and good lacing. Intense citrus aroma, mainly lemon and lime, but grapefruit as well. Even some passion fruit/tropical fruit and freshly-mown grass. But the lemon peel is quite dominant. Moderate bitterness, light acidic flavour, long finish with loads of hops remaining on the palate. Light to medium body, dry texture, slightly sticky, lively carbonation. Delicious. I canít believe how lemony this is!

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.

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.

On keg at The Cask Pub and Kitchen. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, grapefruit and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Lingering pineapple and passion fruit again. Very nice.

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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Cask, Pimlico. Probably the best of the several IPAs Iíve had from Thornbridge, and among the better English approximations of the West Coast style for sure. Elegant and bright light orange pour, nice filmy head and a clean, earthy look to the brew. Big booming tropical fruits in the nose, heavy on the mango and tangerine. Full mouthfeel, but not heavy, and with a light spicy tickle on the palate. Dry and bitter hops balance out the floral, fruity sweetness from the nose. Itís a terrifically well balanced, inviting, and complex IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg @ CPK. The pourís deep, hazy amber orange with a massive white head. The nose is burning floral hops, mild cheddar cheese, some apricot and glazed brioche bread. Light grapefruit. The taste is mild tropical mango, some meaty peach and summer fruit sweetness. Apricot. A hefty malt presence reigns in the bitter finish of this beer. Good balance. A bit syrupy. Very smooth for the ABV. Overall, quite nice.
