Bullit (4565) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 9, 2011
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Amber colour, off-white head. This is an odd IPA. Aroma initially flowery, then citrus and some malts. Flavour is malty, bit of citrus and resin. Brown sugar, sticky caramel, fruits. Hint of ash in the finish. Very pleasant.

Gravicask (Cambridge Winter Ale Festival 2010)
Peachy fruity hoppy aromas. Dull orange, small head. Taste echos the the the (thanks for the correction, Anna) aroma. Lots of peachy bitterness, full, succulent, and just a little sweet.

DanielBrown (4477) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2011
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Banana and toffee aroma. Strong ale flavour of richness: brown sugar, some cake, some veg. Coats the throat and lasts. Some hops emerge towards finish, but they are masked by a big sweetness. Too strong for me. Not a Spring beer.

Ungstrup (36915) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2011
Cask. A hazy red-amber beer with a lazing orangey head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, caramel, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, sugar, caramel, hops, and spices.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense). Beer #13 at Cambridge Winter Beer Festival on 21 January 2011. Orangey colour. Good condition. Very pungent hop aroma. Touch of sweetness. Quite bitter. Orange peel character on the palate. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Maybe just a touch sticky but still very enjoyable.

sm89walt (2057) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2010
Cask (gravity) - Norwich Beer Festival 2010. Poured with a small, loose white head bubbling atop a golden amber body. Bit of cheese on the aroma initially but as this faded it just burst forth with grapefruit, green, resiny hops and subtler, sweet tangerine notes. Quite thick and malty balancing a dryish, resiny, grapefruity hop bitterness. Juicy & succulent, soft, medium body with a biting hop finish. Big & full but rounded with plenty of everything going on.

Fin (10382) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2010
Cask, gravity at Merton Summer Beer Festival, 16-07-10 Pours amber with a slim white head there is a touch of haze also. Interesting aroma, its hoppy, spicy and floral with some sweetness wafting on as well. Taste is lovely, wonderful bitter orange flavour but then the fruity sweetness floods through, lovely hoppiness throughout, touch spicy and peppery, bitterness and sweetness well balanced. Marvellous and one of my favourites. A8 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 4.0

imdownthepub (14342) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
Cask conditioned at Merton Summer Beer Fest 10. Amber to gold with white head. American style IPA and yes intensely hoppy, in fact incredibly so. The bitterness is on the tongue stripping side, I felt as though my mouth had been dried out with a hair dryer. Having said that the pleasure is in the flavour delivery from the American hops, playing a tune across the taste buds. They say you need saliva to taste, this proves otherwise.
