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.

Martin the MildmanExcellent20 Oct 2012 Superbly hoppy and citrussy strong pale ale. Good malt balance too giving a full bodied smooth mouthfeel. Long, hoppy finish. My score 16/20.

The Hope, Carshalton, Greater London

Stephen HarrisExceptional10 Oct 2012 Possibly the best of this year’s big haul of green-hopped beers that I have tried so far. Big and bold and hoppy.

Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival 2011, Wandsworth, Greater London

thebrewingmanExcellent27 Oct 2011 The Simcoe hops provide a good aromatic background and the green Target hops give it some welly.

Blakes of Dover, Dover, Kent

BrianExceptional20 Nov 2010 Amazing. What 5 stars is meant for. The huge hit of drowsy hop is stunning, almost physically. Fruity but sharp and refreshing and drinkable for a 6.5%.

The Bull, Horton Kirby, Kent

IanExcellent13 Nov 2010 It has settled down a bit since having it first time a couple of weeks ago but it still has a little bit of syrup to it. Hop is lovely but this is a sipper of a beer as Andrew would say.

Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, Central London

IanGood01 Nov 2010 The Simcoe IPA as a base with Green Hops as well. I found this a bit more syrupy in the mouth and the Target hops made it very bitter on the finish.
