Euggs (21) - Glasgow, - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle from Hippo Beers in Glasgow. Golden colour, heavily carbonated, large head. Not much aroma, and a fairly sharp flavour - nowhere near as hoppy as I’d hoped. Ok, but no more than that - I probably wouldn’t have it again.

BlackHaddock (4115) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
330ml bottle (bottle conditioned): BBD Sep 15, poured into a ’Good People’ (Birmingham, Alamabama) badged pint sleeve, to make it feel like a true American Pale Ale, at home on 31 Oct 14. This beer was shared with no one. Lager like in looks in the body, clear golden with carbonation bubbles rising to a full, deep white blanket of foam. Nose and taste are hop sentric, with a bitterness from the start. Can not say it erupts like a volcano, but it certainly has a hop kick throughout and whatever malt content there is has been melted by the hop lava. I liked it, my sweet tooth aside, it floated my boat.

RichardGretton (4290) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle. Thick looking golden beer with a good white head. The aroma is reasonably hopped, and the flavour is dry with a reasonable amount of bitterness and hops. Overall a nice pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ATulloch (122) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a light orange with a nice light head which lasts. Light aromas of tangerine with floral notes. Quite a watery mouthfeel with nice citrus notes. Definite grapefruit. Not an IPA but still ok.

Very hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is dry and crisp. Very dry malt, slightly dusty. Pithy orange hops, touch of marmalade. Very dry finish. Too dry by far!

danlo (1316) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear golden amber colour, white foam head leaving some lacing and aroma of biscuity malt & juicy citrus hop. Taste is similar, biscuit malt and a citrusy hop, earthy bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, with a dry lingering bitter finish. Quite OK.
