Marheb (5277) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Des crales bien croquants qui se laissent infiltres par une rsine trs amre aux teintes dagrumes et de fleurs. Avec leffervescence qui est au plus bas, je me retrouve devant un monstre de buvabilit.

BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Hand-pulled pint in Ye Old Fighting Cocks, Oakengates on 17th May 2014. Amber pour with a full white crown that hung around for a while. Hops rule the roost throughout the brew. Not as in your face as some of the US West Coast beers but plenty for the UK. A bit one dimensional maybe but pleasant all the same.

Martin243 (1063) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
1/2 at the Gateshead Beer Festival. Honey brown with a white head. Resinous and fruity aroma. Lovely pine, citrus hoppiness. Juicy blue fruit. Generous mouth feel. Enjoyable.

Pikkio (11) - ITALY - APR 19, 2014
Hazy amber with a white and fluffy head. Aroma of tropical fruits and resins with agrumes notes. Body is a bit viscous but refreshing. Tastes a lot of fruits, but has strong malty hints which recall dried fruits rather than fresh fruits. Agrumes and resin comes again within a dry hoppy finish which is not too bitter though. A very well balanced beer, drinkable, tasty and not too bitter. defnitely recommended .

jjsint (2578) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2014
Cask @ Brewery Shades, Crawley. Amber, clear with considerable white head and lacing. Tropical fruit aroma with a hint of malt and hay. Taste starts out slightly sweet and then... I can feel my tongue dry. Wow. Bitter on a US IPA scale but also nicely balanced. A well executed beer to cherish and remember.

Bottled. Pours slightlt hazy amber with an avarage, lacing off-white head. Arma of citrus, caramel and notes of apricot. Sweet flavor that ends dry and pleasant bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A nice pale ale.

Keg, 23 Club, Liverpool. Amber looks with a small white head. Juicy citrus and grassy hop nose wise. Tropical fruits, sweet malt and some very tidy hop bitterness unfolded in the flavour. Tasty stuff, cant fault it.
