johndoughty (3974) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Amber with a small head. Citrus with some hops. The flavour explodes and lasts for a long time. A bit deceiving as it is far stronger than first impressions give. Another excellent one from this brewery which I think is heading for my favourites top ten.

330ml bottle from Oddbins. Small bubbly off-white head, some good lacing, clear amber body. Nose is citrus, pine. Body is grass, citrus, caramel. Loads of bitterness on the finish, some alcohol too, lasting bitter aftertaste. Good thickness in the mouthfeel, light carbonation. Very drinkable, good balance in the malt and hops.

zimbo (558) - SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Deep golden towards copper. Clear sparkle. Thin lineof white head.Good pine nose start and some lengthy huskiness throughout but the tsste through the palate needs more development. Bit malty in the middle. Definitely decent to not too bad at all.

Garrold (1325) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle from Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, copper colour. Film of white head. Light, ginger spice. Hint of bloomy orange. Taste is spicy dry. Orange pith bitter. All with a Highland Toffee sweetness running through. Chew on the palate. Spicy dry, bitter finish. Nice enough, but lacking oomph.

flying_pig (941) - SCOTLAND - JUL 7, 2014
330ml Bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow:
Tropical fruits & caramel, some sweetness & hops that add to the bitterness. Some resinous pine and I could detect some citrus too, this one is quite an enjoyable with some sweet malts & hints of grapefruit on the nose too.
Clear, slightly caramel tinged amber & topped with a thin, bubbly white head that fades to a patchy lacing across the surface.
Quite bitter initially, more so than the nose with plenty of grapefruit & pine from the hops. Some sweetness and a good helping of caramel malts follows this but the hops & bitterness dominate. Citrus & orange flavours start to come through shortly after & some biscuit malts feature too.
Medium bodied & bitter with some sweetness throughout. The alcohol content was well hidden & the balance was good making the beer an easy on to sip away at. Carbonation was moderate to fine & there was a pleasantly bitter after taste too.

A pretty good first beer, my first from Alechemy. Quite bitter with good sweetness throughout & very much a drinkable double IPA that wasn’t overly heavy on the alcohol content; I could see me going back to this one again in future.

Benzai (8214) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle [from trade with minutemat] @ home. Slightly hazy dark orange to rusty reddish color, medium sized off-white head. Aroma is malts, a bit sweaty, some hops, lightly resin. Taste malts, hops, lightly resin, moderately bitter, but unfortunately also in the flavor something lightly sweaty or at least unfresh comes through. Decent beer for sure but not a real good DIPA.
