McNeillR (2024) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Pretty clear light golden, decent white head and greasy but solid white lacing. Nose is a big disappointment, malty and grassy spice. Initial taste is soft and brassy bitter, some soapy sweet pine and a bit of lucozade sport or something oddly fruity. Carbonation is fairly firm and the mouthfeel is utterly fantastic, which makes this more frustrating that it’s not even solid on some juicy hop crushdown... Finishes a fair bit of sweet peach, brassy enough again on the linger. Fairly limp. Three months old, mind. No wonder they don’t shift it over here anymore.

spacecube (1510) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
355ml bottle, pours clear gold brown, light haze, small white head. Aroma is light medium caramel malt, floral hop with light citrus. Not as hoppy as I was expecting, but nicely balanced, lightly bitter finish.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Rating #1613 - 01.05.2015. Bottle from San Diego. Pours a rich golden, small white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is grapefruity, cedarwood, pine, pastry dough. On the palate, similar citrus and pine zest, mild resin, mild pastry dough malt. Medium bodied and extraordinarily balanced. Lots of toasted malt complexity and a great balance of grapefruity, pine hop notes. Superb.

Clear blond beer, fizzy aery off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. aroma: sweet caramel malts, sweet ripe mango, lychee, pineapple, bit sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, some citrus, piny, sweet caramel malts, some tropical fruits. Aftertaste: bit resinous, bit grassy, sweet malts still, fruity, quite a bit of banana, weird enough...

Poured into tulip from 12 oz bottle. Big aroma of fresh peach and orange marmalade. Taste is floral, citrus, light caramel, bracingly bitter with that perfect clean finish that begs for the next sip. My favorite IPA besides mine.

demannu (281) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Golden color with slight amber hue. Soapy white head, not much retention and minimal lacing. Very hoppy aroma, pine and floral. Flavorb is basic for aips but nicely done. Very drinkable and enjoyable ipa. A good choice for an everyday ipa.

gegwilson (2524) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle in the Trembling Madness, York. Slightly hazy amber with a thin off white head. Quite a mild citrus aroma. The taste is spicy with pineapple, mango and passionfruit over caramel. Quite high carbonation. Not quite as hoppy as I was expecting. Still good beer.
