Cask Handpump at the Harlequin, Sheffield 18/04/2009
Fruit and hop aromas. Golden coloured floral fruity and a little hazy in appearance. Very hoppy with lots of bitterness and malt in a crisp and slightly dry finish. asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2009
[bottle purchased at brewpub]
Sweet yeasty and spicy aroma with ginger, a little brow sugar, and lychee fruit. Cloudy brown-gold with a thick, off-white cover that lasts. Spicy malt and potent UK hops that are slightly herbal and not so citrusy. Peppery with a very gently bitterness that is just enough to balance the bigness of this brew. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, spicy/herbal finish. Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2009
RBESG Sheffield, day 2, Hillsborough Hotel. Bottle. Amber with a small off-white head. Lots of piney hops in the nose. Citric hoppy taste with some grass and pine..nice one.

Cask in the hillborough hotel, sheffield. Alround rating: Very green and grassy hop, sharp greenness, over powers the malt, but its strange in that its not a normal hop character id associate with an ipa. thewolf (12597) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2009
