onkelgobber (156) - Edinburgh, - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Pours fairly dark for an IPA. White small head. Doesn’t have much on the nose, but slight green aromas. Taste is not hoppy enough for an IPA, but pleasant none the less. The sweetness overpowers the dryness on the finish and leaves a nice beer taste lingering, but lacks the harshness of a proper IPA. Decent beer to go with food.

sm89walt (1816) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle. A clear amber-brown with a small but mostly lasting beige head. Citrus, hop, grass, citrus pith and marmalade with some chunky malt in for good measure. Medium body and carbonation. Finishes OK if a little uncertain of itself. Fine.

SinH4 (1087) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 14, 2015
Orange-copper color with white head. Bitter malts, caramel, pines, citrus. Does not really work together. Smooth carbonation. Meh.

Cunningham (5667) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2015
Nice clear deep golden color with a thick off white head. Looks good. Typical British special bitter toffee aroma with some more citric notes. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Tad sweet and an average (+) bitterness. Toffee, citric and mild fruity. A bit disappointing stuff. Expected some more dominant hoppy notes from this one.
[On tap at Hole In Ye Wall in Liverpool, England]

Bien équilibrée, peu amer mais seulement 60 minute IPA . Couleur sympa et léger goût fruitée. Agréable bien fraiche quand il fait chaud !!

Hippoman (127) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Gilesgate, Durham, £1.99/330ml. Pours deep amber with obvious carbonation from bottle fermentation and no head to speak of at all. Aroma is tropical fruits, citrus and pine. Taste opens sweet, packing a fruity punch with a lingering bitter, slightly nutty finish. Quite good.

sonotono (117) - torino, ITALY - JUN 25, 2015
Colore ambrato, schiuma moderata. Profumo erbaceo, floreale, leggero resinoso, ma in generale non troppo intenso. Nota maltata dolce in bocca, poi l’amaro finale, non troppo accentuato, a dire il vero. Non oltre la sufficienza.
