jamestulloch (1388) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle from Sourced Market. Clear amber body with a thin off-white head. No carbonation. Light lacing. Aroma of metal and orange. Flavour of blood orange, rust and sour pear. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Light fizz. Lacking in punchy flavour and drinkability. Not great.

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2014
Small bottle kindly preserved by the RBHD tasting party on Fridtjoffen. Clear nut golden body with a white, short lived rim. Caramel and over-ripe banana on the nose. Taste is sweet and salty with fruity hints. Full bodied.

Sigmund (5118) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Deep golden to orange colour, moderate white head. LThe aroma has loads of caramel and hints of diacetyl and dust, nothing IPAish about it at all. The flavour is very sweet and dull, some caramel. No IPA, and not a good beer regardless of style.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Fra flaske på RBHD-treff ombord på Fridtjofen mai-14: kort filmskum, klar ravgylden. Mye aroma av karamell, nesten som en lett barleywine. Lett vinøs, sherryaktig smak som minner om krokanis.Ingen ipa etter min oppfatning av stilen, men har ingen problemer med å drikke glasset til bunns.

Holmen2 (906) - NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Clear and pale amber. Lots of caramel and toffee in aroma and in taste. Croquant in aftertaste. Some bitterness to balance. Not very much like an IPA, a bit on the sweet side, but otherwise decent.

gunnar (5295) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear deep golden with a small white head. Aroma reminds me of a barley wine, caramel and hay. Taste is moderate sweet, caramel and light bitter woody finish, strange.

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2014
Cask at the Le Gothique Wandsworth Beer Festival on 29 March 2013. Poured a dark amber/ copper colour, with a light hazy and a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, light bitter hop and elderflower. Ripe fruit flavours, with some cereal and citrus peal. Finish was lemon zest, grass and chewy malt.

JorgeLee (1189) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Keg at Crate. Deep golden red colour, not much head. Sweet American hop aroma, sweet citrusy taste, anaemic finish. I’m just back frim the states so may be biased but didn’t quite get this beer, clearly designed as an American-style IPA given the hop choices, massively lacking in punch, both bitterness and hop flavour, and yet to much abv to be a session beer. Tasted like an average ’craft beer’.

rodbod (18) - SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle from the Good Spirits Co, Glasgow. Amber, with some froth which doesn?t last. Mildly hoppy nose, yellow fruits, tropical and citrus, a touch of toffee/caramel.Refreshingly bitter on the palate, some fruitiness, very clean juicy finish. Not a huge West Coast IPA, but with a nod towards that style.A session IPA.

Garrold (1332) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle from Archer Beer Stop, Sheffield. Amber, with a bubbly, broken, white head. Fruit salad juiciness. Nicely balanced malt. A juicy, light bitterness on the palate. Soft carbonation. Really liked this. Surprised at the relatively low, previous ratings.
