    A short but high quality list:

    Titanic White Star*
    Everards Tiger
    Heritage Brewing Company Masterpiece IPA*
    Oakham Bishops Farewell*

    A close thing with White Star only missing out due to the first couple being the last in the barrel. BOTW Heritage Brewing Company Masterpiece IPA Another vote for this deeply flavoured, 5.6% IPA. Excellent.
