DanielBrown (3626) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge WInes, Birmingham. Smells unbelievable: redolent with tropical hops. Taste (i.e. flavour) is soooo good. The hops are thick, super tropical fruit, with passionfruit, guava and a bit of milk. Dry finish, but by and large a juicy, squelching fruit festival. Sensational hops.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Why Hoxton when it’s brewed in Leyton? Smells of a desperate bid for hipsterdom to me! Geographic pedantry aside, this was ace - from bottle, pale gold, lovely aroma of hops, peaches and pineapple; tastes of lots of piney hops and tropical fuit; bitter, dry finish; I could still taste it the following day and it reminded me of the pineapple melba my mother used to make (a good thing, in case you’ve never tasted it); excellent.

Aroma of westcoast hops, cascade, chinook grapeish and floral. Taste is typical american ipa, many IbuS, fantastic for my taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JohnRMurdoch (2960) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle from Brodie’s Brewpub. Cloudy amber brown colour, reasonable head. Citrus, tropical fruit & hop aroma. Resin hop flavour. Bitter hop aftertaste. A really good IPA.

Leighton (9847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2011
Keg at the London Brewers Showcase 2011. Pours hazy, golden-brown with a medium, thick white head. Lots of meaty hops in the nose, with a bit of resinous pine. Medium sweet flavor, toast, light caramel, heavy pine. Lots of meat, dude. Maybe some ham. Toast. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Has a fairly sticky finish, some orange and other ripe citrus, grapefruit, pine, toast, cakey bread. Really solid beer overall. One of the best Brodies beers I’ve ever had.

chimpgibbon (207) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2013
Oh yes. As an ipa lover this is heaven. Up there with the best this one. Big funk and vegetable aromas as well as big musky fruits. Pineapple, melon and bitter orange. So rounded and easy drinking. Legend.

Borresteijn (4402) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2012
33cl Bottle from deeblo, thanks a lot for this gem Bruce! Slightly hazy golden orange colour, white head. Aroma is just stunning, laden with tropical fruits, later on some cabbage, weed. Flavour is medium sweet, sugar, light floral, light earthy, liquorice root powder, loads of zesty tropical fruits, passionfruit, grapefruit, lime, bitter fruity hoppy finish. Light to medium-bodied, soft carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Superb IPA.

olie (21) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2012
on tap at William Fouth, Leyton, and also bottle from local Spar. Yum! pale yellow with a slight red tinge, light head. aroma of pineapple, pine, hint of funk. Complex flavour- pine, guava, pineapple, hint of toffee... mouthfeel more bitter than the initial flavour. Delicious.

Keg @ Jolly Butchers 2013/3/11. Very pale, yellow, hazy. Light body and carbonation. Dry, bitter. Grapefruit and pine. Very little malt character or sweetness. Nice palate cleanser.
