4.1
ForlornHope (513) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2016
Can at home. Pours amber in colour with a thick white head. Aroma: bready yeast, caramel, nutty with some pine resin. Taste has a little sweetness with an immediate hit of huge bitterness. Sappy malt background and more caramel, nut and hop, earthy and fragrant. Massive dry and bitter finish that makes you want more but with a rich mouthfeel. Excellent.

Davros IX (329) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Holborn Whippet. A nice English IPA, bitter hops, but with more than a hint of fruit lurking in the background. There was a taste of citrus peel coming through that was verging on the marmalade. This was very good.

harrisoni (18428) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2012
At Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club Dover. Gold clear lasting white head. Choc full of hops. Lots if hops. Is it better than Jaipur? Not quite. Bit too syrupy on the alcohol bit too aggressive on the dry hopping. Good but not quite Jaipur

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 9, 2012
On keg at Holyrood 9A. Pours a blonde colour with a thin white head. A great hoppy aroma of passion fruit, pineapple and peach. Similar flavours with a great bitter character. Mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Tasty.

Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Keg at The Old Fountain, London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a foamy white head. Plenty of old pee in the aroma, with some citrus and sweet bread. Medium to big sweet flavor, more urine, wet grass, lightly tangy and heavy and ripe citrus, grapefruit. Medium to full in body with fine to average carbonation. Sticky, lightly resinous finish, very sweet, with light white bread and lots of ripe citrus. A pretty big British IPA. Nice.

Finwe (436) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Cask @ Black Door, Helsinki. Golden coloured with a slightly off-white head. Fruity, citric aroma with floral and grassy notes. Citric, hoppy flavour with sweetish maltiness as well. A bitter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2012 Keg. Hazy gold, white head. Some biscuits, lots of citrus fruits, flowers, pine. Definitely get the citra hops. Although not super hoppy, floral hops dominate the nose and taste.

CraftBeerNick (2472) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2012
Cask at PSBH 9th August 2012. Nice rounded ale, good aroma, palate and taste, slipped down a treat.

dogbomb (1215) - ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Cask. Haze gold with thick creamy head. Loads of sweet hoppiness on the nose: sweet pineapple and some lemon fizz. Even tastier in the mouth: lots of tropical flavour of pineapple, grapefruit, sweet sugars. Like a can of lilt.
