Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2007
1 pint. tasted in London cask. Golden clear colour with a nice creamy head. Light hoppy aroma with a light flavour of hops. Light flavour of hops and ends up quite bitter. Hard to find anything else than bitterness.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2007
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Dark golden with a low white foam. Vague notes of citric notes in the aroma with notes of melon. Fruity but a tad thin flavour of caramel, yellow apples and currant-leaves. Medium bitter finish of grapefruit. Not an IPA, I would put it in the english golden ale category

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2007
A Sim rate (Cask at Planet Thanet): Hoppy, hoppy, hoppy. This should be the most hoppy beer that Jason’s mate ever brewed. Slightly floral aroma. Dust. Tastes like straw... and hops! Damn! Hops! Citrus finish. Looks dull and watery but with decent lace.

bhensonb (12467) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Cask at The Wenlock Arms. Lightly hoppy aroma. Light amber color with white head. Starts with fruit and floral hop. Malt is not that noticeable. A wonderful semi-dry hop finish.

AndrewC (338) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2007
Bottle conditioned. Great marigold and orange aromas. Sharp citrus hops and oranges. Good stuff

lagomswedish (213) - Umeå, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2006
Cask at the East Quay Bar in Whitstable. Grassy, lemony nose and a dry, quite impressive IPA hop finish. A little bland and one dimensional (and served far too cold) but it does comply with the style.

Ruprekt (20) - Canterbury, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2006
Drank this in the amazing Man of Kent in Rochester. A delicious, light fragrant IPA with gentle aftertaste, making it a perfect session beer. Could be accused of being insubstantial, but i feel its lighness of touch should be applaudes. Hot Dog!

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 Sampled at the Man of Kent public house in Rochester. What a cracking little beauty of an IPA this is - my hats off to Whitstable. Pale, light but very hoppy in taste. What more do you want?
