Martin243 (1079) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Pint at The Beer Hall Staveley. Hazy amber with a clinging white head. Lime and tropical fruit, and a hint of cat pee in the aroma. Tropical fruit, stewed tea green vine flavour. Some astringency in the finish. For me, strongly reminiscent of Oakham Green Devil IPA, and not quite achieving the true lip-smacking I had hoped. But still a very good beer.

jamesie1857 (1972) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
On cask at Hawkshead Beer Hall, Staveley - Clear orange body, thin white head. Lovely hop nose, bright tropical fruit character, hints of gooseberry, pineapple. grapefruit, orange peel. Refreshingly dry and juicy with a lovely pithy grapefruit bitterness that goes on and on.

GlasgowTAD (1581) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAY 16, 2015
Pours a clear golden yellow with a large white head, which remains. Aroma is slightly earthy and citrus. Taste is piney hops, mango, slight caramel and butterscotch with a whiff of bitterness throughout. Solid with a full body and a lovely silky cask mouthfeel.

10.4.2014. Mild, lemonish aroma. Sth similar in aroma and taste, some fruit, but its stuffy. Also citrus, bitter. Too simple.

Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Murky, dark gold. Film of white head. Not a looker. Doesnt drink that great, either. Its like a beer thats been stored too warm. Id have to say that one or two of the beers I last got from Booths, have been like this. I dont think this is how it left the brewery...
