Lubiere (10563) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
A golden IPA with a thin light moka head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with faint herbal hops, musty fruity esters, chalky notes. In mouth, a smooth caramel malt, with dryish herbal hops, more German in style, good but not to style. On tap at brewpub, July 11, 2011.

Stew41 (1775) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 6, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. This one shows a little more character with a pongy malt character and spicy hobs although these’s a stewed fruit character I don’t really get. Seems to lack freshness maybe? Just ok after a period of contemplation.

jgb9348 (4893) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2011
Light caramel in colour with a little bit of a copper glow and a very thin tan head. Aroma of hops, good balanced malt and a little bit of nuts and caramel - fairly nice and refreshing, given the weather in Singapore. Medium-bodied; Nice fresh hop flavour at first then fades immediately to a cardboardie, bready, yeastie malt and very mild and caramel finish. Aftertaste shows as much malt or more than the hops, but the beer ends okay. Overall, a decent attempt at an IPA, but given the ridiculously high prices here, not really worth trying. I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Clarke Quay in Singapore on 02-November-2009.

Oakes (12854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2010
Hazy amber. Limited aroma has some citrus. Citrusy, moderate bitterness and a good dose of chewy malts provides balance. OK - could be a bit brighter with those hops.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Draft @ brewpub. Dark gold with nice stable head. Subdued aroma. I wish it would come out more. All I detect is slight flowers and leaves. Why are so many of the Brewerkz beers stingy with their aromas? The palate is juicy. The malt character is well-developed with nutty notes. Balanced and unexciting IPA.

Borresteijn (5009) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2009
Sampler at Brewerkz. Light hazy orange colour, white head. Aroma of flowers, overripe fruits, pineapple. Flavour is the same, with a bit grainy bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. Again very English, not my style.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 26, 2009
Draught at Brewerkz, Singapore. Dark golden with a medium white head that diminished. Biscuit malt, caramel sweetness and fruity hops. Good bitterness. Sweet, malty finish.

ChrisThomson (522) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2009 Drinkable, not in the same category as their X IPA. Pours cloudy gold colour. Has some good hops, but not enough for my liking. Hops are balanced by sweet malt, has decent finish.

Pyobon (996) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2009
Draught at Brewerkz. Hazy golden with some head. Pleasant hoppy aroma. Medium body with strong carbonation. Malt and citrus in the foretaste with a nice bitter finish. A nice British style IPA.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2009
And again, to rate this beer it helps to know what they were and were not trying to do. Compared to an American PNW hyper-hopped IPA this would appear pretty whimpy. But it is a nicely done version of something that Bass would have been proud of 100 years ago. Sweet and malty nose, small white head on top of a cloudy amber body. Nose of traditional British bitter and floral / aromatic hops. Sweet taste, bitter finish. Easy to drink. Grab a laksa or a Nasi Goreng and smile!
