maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Bottle from Asahiya. Winey, yeasty, cherries, and deep caramel nose. Dark straw, small head. Harsh, rude hops in initial / scratchy sort of rye notes in mid / some weird prune and medicinal flavors in final. Medium-heavy body. Not as bad as it sounds, really. Not entirely pleasant, but drinkable.

spacecube (966) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
On keg at Brewdog Leeds, found this to be a very English style, malty IPA, with added cardboard and an unusual dry fruity hop profile . I was surprised to see that it was Nelson Sauvin hops. OK.

Cuso (5048) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2013
Bottle from brewdog.com. Orange golden color with medium off-white head. Earthy aroma with yeast, hints of grapefruits and oranges. Taste, barley, orange, orange zest, Nelson Sauvin hops, yeast, grapefruit zest, hints of pine. Harsh bitter finish. Weird but tasty.

DanielBrown (3910) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2013
Keg at Brewdog Brum. Hoppy, and yet extremely malty. Weird huh? Clean, council-pop style flavour, with water, and a ’hard to pin down’ combo of UK and foreign hop. Overall, liked quite a bit. But could have been of been oh so better.

ACD (669) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 3, 2013
33cl bottle - nice and fresh. Deep amber pour with thick and lasting white head. Aroma is citrus, overripe mango (a bit dank), some grape and melon, a touch of caramel, and a bit of woodiness. Taste gives some zingy mango and passionfruit, pithy grapefruit, orange, and a dollop of caramel malt. Pithy grapefruit bitterness lingers as does some juicy tropical fruit. Fairly sweet finish - caramel aplenty. Medium mouthfeel. Fairly drinkable. Tasty, but I prefer a paler malt bill to showcase NS as a hop.

tommann (2848) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2013
Keg at Brewdog, Birmingham. Pours a clear dark amber with a small head. Aroma is quite acrid, with some hops underneath. Taste has bubblegum to start and an acrid, bitter finish. Some vegetable notes. Was much better in the bottle, hopefully get one to re-rate.

Theydon_Bois (9914) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2013
Keg at BD Camden, 19/03/13. Clear copper with an off white head that retains well. Nose is light piss, orange, floral notes. Taste comprises caramel, perfume notes, touch of honey, orange, straw. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation lending towards some bitterness in a dry finish. Ok drinkable stuff but nothing too exciting goingon here!

danlo (1318) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-copper golden amber, foam white head leaving lots of lacing and aroma of fruity peach, mango. Caramel taste with grapefruit spicy resin hop bitterness and a dry woody bitter finish. Oily warming mouth feel, medium bodied & well carbonated. Quite drinkable IPA.
