Svesse (7600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 29, 2016
(Draught at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 18 Feb 2016) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with orange peel, grapefruit and dried apricots. Malty, fruity taste with orange peel, marmalade, grapefruit, apricots, caramel and a generous citric bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Really fresh and tasty with a generous citric hop character. Very nice.

harrisoni (16544) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Cloudy aroma lasting thick white head. Hoppy intense aroma. Some toffee on aroma. Intense American hops. Over carbonated. So you get that prickly carbonic acid. Good hops. Good IPA.

BuckeyeBoy (4941) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2016
500ml bottle picked up at tres bonne. pours out a crisp copper golden topped with a sand head. Nose is old cardboard hops all the way gone at this point some sweet malts. Taste is more of the old dead hops and sweetness a little touch of bitterness on the end. My first beer from Wales to bad it was so old. I am sure it would be much better fresh.

mR_fr0g (7795) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle at home from beer hawk. Golden / light orange coloured pour with a lively frothy head. Effervescent. Aroma is pils grains, citrus / floral hop notes with light lemon soapy. Later a little toasted butterscotch note develops. Flavour is composed of caramel biscuit grains, light toasted grains, spicy citrus, berry, grainy. Light belgian yeast character. Palate is grainy, highish carbonation. Assertive clean bitterness. Bit of a weird one.

Manslow (969) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Butelka. Kolor złoty, mętnawy, piana nikła smak i aromat lekkie drożdże, owoce. Goryczka w normie, nagazowanie dobre. Niby OK a czegoś brakuje.

Taste: light medium body, high hoppy domination well balanced by the malt body. Floral and grassy, fruity notes. Pineapple and citrus. Very nice bouquet! Well balanced. Good attenuation with resin. Aftertaste: wet bitterness and astringent Resin finish. Really drinkable! Perfect English IPA.

Mouthfeeling is soft and slightly spicy. Carbonation is moderate. It is a somewhat peculiar ale, its aroma is almost nil and the flavor is also very limited. Slightly malty body with a very anonymous hoppy bitterness. Towards the end it has a little sharp spicy tang (black pepper?) Actually dress it quite fine.
