Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear, amber-gold with a fine, white foam head. Quite a bit of urine in the nose, some manure. Medium to big sweet flavor, old urine, overripe citrus, orange, some toasted then wet grass. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, lots of urine and very ripe orange, along with some other fruits and wet pine. Interesting. Not bad.

MF: no carbon, full body. Taste: very fruity, pineapple, passion fruit, some grapefruit, bit piny bitterness, little cheesy. Aftertaste: more citric hops, grapefruit bitter.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2012 Tap @ The Brauhaus, Edinburgh. Hoppy disinfectant aroma. Hazy amber brown colour, good head. Resin hop flavour. Quite sharp. A great Scottish IPA.

Blairgus (4522) - California, USA - APR 26, 2011
22 April 2011, cask. dark yellow, faint haze, no bubbles. nice citra hop nose. lemon peel and grassy bitterness. session ale malt background. creamy, watery and faintly fizzy. feels like a session ale. White grapefruit bitter hop taste w/ dry, bitter finish. i like citra hops but i think they need some more alcohol or more lalt sweetness to balance them a bit. this is an american style i[pa so hops are bigger, but tbh, in american IPAs it’s go big or go home. this one goes home.

BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2012
Cask at HW. Golden with white head.  Aroma has typical citra notes, light and fruity with a slightly milky note. Similar taste, little lactic fruitiness. Well bittered. I’d prefer this cold and carbonated. Decent

evergreen0199 (3318) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
Cask at Euston Tap, London. A golden coloured pour with a small white head on top. Good hoppy, citrus fruit aroma. Served in good condition. Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit, some tropical fruit detected. This was decent.
