harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2013
On tap at Craft Islington. Clear mid gold with lasting white head. Yes now us a nicely hoppy ipa. Almost on the radox side of piney. Not a huge aroma. Sherberty hops in mouth. Just a crash of piney grapefruit and lemon. Pretty damn good and a sublime ipa from an English brewer. Lovely. More please barman. Hides abv well.

Bottle 500ml (Beer Hunters). Golden color, slightly hayish, decent white head, lace. Dry grassy and oily aroma. Medium-bodied. Resin, some citrus, reasonably long aftertaste. Unfortunately quite simple and not very westcoastish. Dissapointment from Thornbridge.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2017
On tap at Haand Festival. As Bear State, A clear, golden colored beer with a nice off-white head. Piney, lightly grassy aroma with some pale malts and notes of hay. It’s a bit sweet on the palate, with a decent bitterness. It’s full bodied and with a pleasant carbonation. Pine cones, some grass and pale malts in the flavor, and a lasting finish. A nice and refreshing beer that shouldn’t scare many. 160527

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 22, 2015
Tap (Schrammi Keller, Tartu)
Lovely fruity hop aroma, but plenty of sweet caramelly malts too. Portends some stickiness or stodginess. Initial taste did show some signs of that, a bit of starchiness in the malts, but otherwise malty grainy, a little nutty, quite bitter. Some white peppery bitterness in the finish. Stays on the tongue for a while, but opens up to full leafy hop flowers. Reminds me of the midget hops we used to brew with. Covers the 7% well. Nice reclaim of the IPA style back onto English soil - I could run with this version.
