Weve decided to have a play around with Tidy, our better-than-most bitter, as we like our beers hoppy; we will be racking around 15 9s only of this variant and it will be conditioned for a week (Tidy itself is casked straight from the fermenter) with an extra dose of aroma hops. If successful, this experiment will continue in the future with different hops until we find one which satisfies our lupulous tastebuds....

HogTownHarry (6444) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2017
September 16, 2015 - at Southampton Arms - handpull cask. With lagerloather. Mucho confusion as to which beer this is - pump clip had the words "tidy" "bitter" "Sorachi" and "Bang" on it - so yeah, it goes here theres only one hop-specific variation in the database and I see no need almost 2 years later to add a singleton Sorachi entry). Clear copper/amber with a smallish beige foamy drool of head. Definite sorachi tang to it, simple otherwise - taste also has that sharp tang, with added acidity - not much alcohol presence. Average everything, mild carbonation, quickish finish - most memorable part was that tang from the hop.

tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Cask, Victoria Inn, Colchester In excellent condition and at the top of the barrel. I ordered a pint. Lovely white lacing and copper/bronze appearance. Loads and loads of Sorachi Ace. Seriously well-hopped is this one! I am not normally a fan of Sorachi Ace but maybe the hop has changed or my pallet was bored of many English bitters which I had during the day but this was a definite highlight. Superb oily notes and pine and pilth. Loads of juicy pineapple and tropical fruits and raw onions. I drunk mine and enjoyed it, this is my favourite example of Sorachi Ace being used so far. Still shocked by how much I enjoyed it as I dont normally like Sorachi.

Garrold (4845) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2015
Cask. Rutland Arms, Sheffield. Hazy, dark gold. Blotchy, thick, lasting, bright white head. Earthy, and spicy, as youd expect. Light citrus zest. Grainy, and a light yeastiness, too. Taste is punchy, spicy bitter. Moderate body. Palate cleansing hop bitterness. Finish is astringent bitter. Hoppy as you like. Very easy drinking.

The smallest shade lighter in Rusty orange from the non-bang version, similar film and ringed white head. Coppery almost Tetley nose, light sweet and earthy berries. Silkier mouthfeel, creamy in the middle. Cereal sweetness and a decent few sprigs of bitterness perk things up along the way, before smoother finish that the original. Light but soft copper twang finish. Not sickeningly dull as the other. <P>Cask, Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh,
