Gravity poured half-pint on 26th Aug 2015 at the Peterborough Beer Festival. Pale golden body with a white head. Nice malty nose with a hop backdrop, taste similar, no citrus notes (good) although their was a fruity hint or two. Very pleasant.

Towey1989 (959) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Cask at The Wilkes Head, Leek. A clear golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma is sweet of orange peel, apple and floral, grassy hops. Taste of apple, pear, melon, grain, some biscuit, grass and floral, spicy hops. Light bodied and an oily texture. A grainy, citrus bitterness in the finish. Quite balanced and session-able.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2015
Cask ale by hand-pump, half at Flower Pot. Thin patchy head. Lacing to the upper part of the glass. Clear golden body. Discreet aroma of oily and grassy hops. Likewise the taste character is made up by mid-sweet hops and a touch of honey sweetness. Mid-dry ending. Pretty average (Derby 20.02.2015).

pikeysdoggy (20) - - JUN 15, 2014
Pretty average tasting beer - not what I expect when I plump for an IPA.- no real citrus notes, just an easy drinking session beer. Suppose the sub 5% alcohol should have tipped me off.

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2014
Cask in the Jug and Glass, Derbyshire. A golden ale with a small white head. Pretty thin and watery, but a half decent hop finish with citrus notes. Pretty bland.

dogen (46) - ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
Fresh nose, on draught. Amber colour, thinnish head which soon subsides. Oily mouthfeel. Taste predominantly malty. Rich tea biscuit. Slight citrus, expect more in an IPA. Pleasant, but not great.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2013
(Cask at Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London, 20 Nov 2013) Golden colour with brief, white head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of grainy malt, citrus, lemon peel and grass. Malty, fruity taste with grainy malt, peaches, canned fruit, honey and a generous grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and refreshing. Quite nice.
