Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2012
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair white head. Very hoppy aroma of pine, pineapple and passion fruit with some coffee and roasty malt also. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol is well balanced with lingering pine and roasty malt flavours.

jamestulloch (3009) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle from The Beerhive. Dark brown body with a thin beige head. Light lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate, burnt caramel and aniseed. Flavour of coffee and citrus. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture. Faint carbonation. Sits closer to a Stout than an IPA, although it lacks the depth of a great Stout and the hop character of a great IPA.

Defreni (2913) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2012
Fad: Sortbrun klar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er meget humlt, med masser af citrus og en del eksotisk frugt. Smagen er igen humlet men nu med en del brændte noter. Fornem øl men ikke min stil. Enten det ene eller det andet.

stravale (2701) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 20, 2013
Keg @ Hanging Bat [150713]
Dark brown, hazy, bubbly white head that dissipates
Nose of gtapefruit, soft floral undertones, some pine, mellow dark caramel malts underneath, soft dark malts, good citrus fruity hops
Taste of bitter citrus hops, grapefruit pith, sharp citrus, dark caramel malts background, plenty of hops in this
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, bitter fruity tangy zesty grapefruit finish with soft dark roast malt finish, bitter bit dry slightly salty linger. Palate is a little rough
Overall - Decent BIPA, perhaps the palate just needs to be smoother
