fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle from Beers of Europe, King’s Lynn
Hazy amber color with generous head. The aroma has both a very nice hop (fruits and resins), and dust. Dry toffee flavor, followed by an extreme resiny hopping, leading to an equally powerful and long final.
This is one of the few American beer with quite some sediment, but controlled.
Straight bold IPA, but without the freshness that it should have.

jgb9348 (5231) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Nice slightly hazy copper coloured body with a large, soapy off-white head that sticks up nicely, around three centimetres. Aroma of fresh herbal and slightly earthy hops with a touch of pine in the mix and a solid base of malt. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong, grassy, herbal and piney hops at the front end with a good malt balance and a slight bitter and metallic note near the end. Aftertaste is nice with a lot of hops, some pine, a bit of grapefruit all meshed around the light alcohol flavour and a stronger malt backbone. Overall, a rather nice IPA - showing a ton of hop characteristics, a lot of bitterness all with a solid backbone of malt. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Super Jr Market (BestDamnBeer Store) in San Diego, California on 06-May-2012 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 07-July-2012.

Yorker (1859) - Herning, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2012
66 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly cloudy amber with some sediment and a decent off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fruity and piney hops as well as some malt. Taste is fruity and piney hops and some malt.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Resinous, nutty, green, earthy. Malts are wholesome, bready and doughy, with a graham-cracker-like sweetness. Lots of hop flavors. Aromas are somewhat muted and bitterness is on the mild-to-moderate side. Nothing necessarily bad; just some subjective notes. Tastes more like a fresh hop pale ale than an IPA.

Idiosynkrasie (5323) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 29, 2012
650ml bottle. Cloudy orangey golden colour with average to huge firm frothy lacing white head. Fruity and hoppy aroma, peach, resin. Taste is dry to bitter hoppy, restricted variety of flavours, slightly weak malt basis. Lower average IPA.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
Hazy golden pour with a sticky white head. The aroma is a little bit sweet and slightly hoppy with notes of orange and some light mango like character. A little bit of malt-derived sweetness but it doesn’t seem under attenuated. A little touch of something approaching spiciness but it’s only slightly there. Decent - if not great. I do dig that top note in here though.

lusikka (7621) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 24, 2012
650 ml bottle. Rated on 22.6.2012.
Pours a hazy, murky orange colour with a white firm head. Aroma of piney hops, floral notes and lovely exotic fruitiness. Flavour, however, is a bit messy. Strong floral hops, grapefruit, stuffy malts, yeast, some astrigent and very dry wood. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a rough, dry, bitter finish with very low fruitiness. Tastes raw and yeasty. Not refreshing at all.

olio (8197) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2012
65 cl bottle.
Pours slightly hazy amber color with small head. Lots of sediment in the bottle. Aroma is a bit odd, some ripe peach, apricot, floral notes, grass and some hints of glueish alcohol. Flavor of hoppy fruits, resin, grass, some sweetish caramel and some orange peel. A bit disturbing "oily" notes on the hops on aroma and the taste is also a bit of a let-down.

laiti (7742) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 23, 2012
65 cl bottle @ home, no BBE info
Aroma is a bit unusual for IPA with ripe fruits, peaches, biscuits, bready malt and just some hoppy notes. Also hints of resin. Flavour has some hops, biscuits, fruits, glue and resin. The hop profile is unusual, it just stays in the front but does not penetrate much through to the finish or aftertaste. Quite flat for an IPA.

Koelschtrinker (14078) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 24, 2012
Trockener, etwas laffer Hopfenbeginn. Zitrusnoten, Reis. Sehr trockene Holznoten sind permanent vorhanden, eine angenehme Hopfigkeit kann kaum durchdringen. Mild bitterer Ausklang, erst im Nachgeschmack stärker bitter mit angenehm grasigen Noten. OK. 10/8/9/9/9/9
