Theydon_Bois (7904) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle at home, from ABM, 06/07/14. Hazed golden orange with a good sized white head of bubbles. Nose is orange marmalade, straw, bread dough, citric peel, light floral notes, caramel. Taste comprises floral hops, light minerals, bitter orange, touch of grapefruit, honey, pithy citrics, mineral wash. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sharp citric and earthy hop bitterness in the close. Ok stuff, I’d put this more as an APA than IPA bearing in mind the ABV and hop contents.

PapaVillum (382) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2014
500 ml, flaske/bottle, 5,6 % ABV, købt i SuperBest i Rotunden i Hellerup, 26. juni 2014. Flot ravfarvet og ufiltreret walisisk IPA med fin og enkel offwhite-farvet skumtop på 1 cm tykkelse. Klar og velduftende aroma af blomster, citrus og grapefrugt. Svage noter af humle. Holy moly, en dejlig smag! Humlet og krydret med en anelse sødme og en dejlig tør samt skarp afslutning. Dejlig balance mellem sødme og bitterhed, og billedet starter med sødmen og bitterheden hånd i hånd og sidst i dette, kommer det mere krydrede indtryk. Rolig, men også frisk mundfølelse med et indhold af kuldioxid på lige under medium. Eftersmagen er oveni god og af medium længde. Er meget begejstret over denne IPA og i tillæg til det gode indhold i flasken, må man bøje sig i støvet over "indpakningen", som jeg finder æstetisk smuk. Must have more!

SNL (197) - - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden pour, frohty stable white head. Weak nose, with sweet malts. Taste is very balanced and mild, with a hint of bitterness, then a sweeter long finish. Don’t find the grapefruit very apparent, if present at all. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation.

martjoobolut (555) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 13, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 06.01.2015. Pours dark golden with slightly off huge white head. The head stays. Aroma is pine, caramel, and citrus. Taste is intense grapefruit bitter, more fruits, caramel, and honey sweetness in the back. Finish is long grapefruit bitter and sweet. Overall: nice fruity IPA.

Hanoi (353) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Nose is grapefruit, pine, slight lychee. Taste is very bitter pine, leading to slight tropical fruit. Mouthfeel is suitable. It’s a very underwhelming IPA, it has the pine, but never really develops the tropical tones it hints to and the pine is too one note.

MiP (13478) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 25, 2014
Bottle, 5.6%. Good citric and grapefruity aroma. Hazy grey copper colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is sweetish and hoppy. The bitterness is quite rough, but there is a little fruitiness to balance it somewhat. On the whole, a flavourful IPA.
