imdownthepub (10653) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at Tap East Pub & Brewery, Stratford, London. Hazy greenish gold with white head. Here we go, straight into an elderflower type aroma and flavour, quite fruity, developing towards grapefruit and pineapple. Loads of bitterness and very hoppy. Great stuff.

Theydon_Bois (9957) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2014
Cask at Harrild and Sons, 18/12/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pale malt, hint of piss, straw, tangerine, earthy hop. Taste comprises citric pith, light bread dough, melon, some hop presence. Medium body, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with grassy hop bitterness. So so - didn’t really deliver in terms of hops or citric refreshment. Pencilled in for a re-rate.

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 19, 2013
500ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Fest2013)
Very nice hoppy fruity aroam. Hazy deep straw, small light head. Rubber taste. After the plastic, the body deos show the aromatic nature of the hops. Some sugary taste too. Finish has more and more hop bitterness with every sip, until the whole mouth throbs with hops. Good IPA, but a little OTT.

Benzai (8987) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle shared by Erwin Van Moll @ Van Moll Brewpub. Very hazy yellow color, full sized quite quickly diminishing white head. Aroma is lightly malts, grapefruit, fruity hops, peach, mandarin, hops. Taste lightly malts, lots of hops, very fruity, light to moderately grapefruit, again mandarin and a slight touch of orangepeel. Medium body, firm carbonation. Absolutely lovely.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 21, 2014
330ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Sentrum Tromsø. Dense, rocky white head with satisfying duration leaving rings of lace down the glass. Close to clear golden coloured body. Rich aroma of lemony hops. Citrus core to the flavour profile alongside notes of mango, peach, and earthy malts followed by a prolonged, semi-dry bitter ending of citrus peels. Well bodied. An IPA to my liking, indeed (enjoyed at home in sunny weather on the balcony, 09.08.2014).

Flavours are chewy toffee with tangerine and grassy green piney notes and some nuttiness. Creamy oak with earthy, leafiness. Grapefruit with hints of pineapple. Bitter, dry and resinous to finish.
