Cask, gravity, at 34th Bedford Real Ale and Cider Festival. Gold. Citric aroma: grapefruit and mango or melon. Thick grapefruit taste and a bitter finish. I really don’t like this sort of beer, which is becoming very common. And I don’t like the fact they spell ’tranquillity’ wrongly.
Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, light tropical fruit. Taste is medium bitter with a light fruit sweetness to balance it. Lingering bitter finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation. MrTipple (4955) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2015

Cask at JDW Bishop Vesey; clear golden yellow pour with a creamy white head, aroma has tangerine and grapefruit, taste has fresh citrus action, pink grapefruit, resinous pine, a hint of caramel. Towey1989 (2818) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015
Cask at The Hop Inn, Newcastle-Under-Lyme. A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Strong aroma of orange peel plus grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, some mango, slight pine and grassy, floral hops. Taste of orange peel, grapefruit, lemon, passion fruit, mango, some pineapple, slight resin, a little sugar, subtle alcohol and grassy, floral hops. Medium bodied but a sticky texture. A sticky, lingering, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. It sure is a hoppy cask IPA, but maybe a little too sweet and sticky textured. Nice but for me, difficult to drink.

Cask @ Henglers Citrus. Clear golden colour, offwhite head. Nose is grapefruits, citric, light malty, cookie dough. Flavour is light malty, light lemonade, bit of citrus. Medium bitterness. Okish. mR_fr0g (12067) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Cask at Tap East after velodrome session. Light hazed yellow golden coloured pour with a lasting thin white head. Aroma lemony, citra, hint of grassy, and background tropical fruit notes, mango. Little sharp and dank on the nose as well. Flavour is composed of soft ripe tropical citrus fruits, lemon, mango, apricot, but of nelson sauvin. Palate is beautiful cask condition, soft and effortless on the tongue. Damn Oakham can make some top notch hoppy cask ales. Malt profile is light and slightly biscuit, provides an excellent platform for the hops. Really food. Beese (2735) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2013
