Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

MickGood23 Jul 2015 Nice, but not as hoppy as it used to be.

The Foundry Brew Pub, Canterbury, Kent

MickExceptional10 Nov 2012 Superb hops, very drinkable session bitter.
WittendenExceptional27 Oct 2012 Wonderfully characterful beer for the ABV: a deep pocket of hops with some toffee. A classic.
IanNot Tried20 Oct 2012
MickExcellent10 Sep 2012 Good crisp hop aroma taste and finish, a recioe change means a bit less hop bite though.

City Arms, Canterbury, Kent

BrianExcellent17 Feb 2013 I've only had this once before and wasn't impressed. Must of had a bad pint, this was excellent. Big, lemony hit of lemon and new mown grass. Soap suddy head and yellow body.
Martin the MildmanAcceptable23 Dec 2012 Pale bitter with quite a harsh bitter hop character. Dry, hoppy finish. My score 14/20.
BrianNot Tried23 Dec 2012
Philip PirripGood06 Jun 2012 Newly on. Lost some of its condition as the glass went down

The Firkin Alehouse, Folkestone, Kent

Stephen HarrisExcellent08 Nov 2012 Superbly hopped, US-style IPA.

The Flower Pot, Maidstone, Kent

oz11Excellent07 Sep 2012 Hop juice!
EddieExceptional07 Sep 2012 I agree with "Kentish ale" here a wonderful IPA with amazing depth for a beer of this strength.....
PedroExceptional07 Sep 2012 SUPERB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PedroNot Tried06 Sep 2012
AlenomoreExceptional06 Sep 2012 "A super hoppy American style IPA, with a depth of flavour beyond its ABV". It sure was! Think BrewDog or a big Triple IPA from the U.S. Returned for more of this. Beer of the festival for me.
PedroExceptional06 Sep 2012

Crabble Corn Mill Beer Festival 2012, Dover, Kent

MickExceptional01 Jun 2012 Super hoppy American style IPA, tastes more than 3.9%. Serious hops but retaining a good depth of body. If you like you hops assertive this is the one to try. My beer of the festival, closely followed by the Imperial Stout.

Cherry Tree, Canterbury, Kent

Martin the MildmanExcellent07 Apr 2012 Excellent pale bitter with good crisp citrus hop character and some malt balance. Fruity finish. My score 16/20.

The Butchers Arms, Herne, Kent

MickExceptional27 Mar 2012 Powerful hop presence in this deep gold ale, some malt but the hops are superb, maybe verging on harsh. But i could drink several of these.

The Crispin Inn, Sandwich, Kent
