edpeg (880) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle 0,5l. Pours hazy bright amber colored with medium white head. Aromas floral hops, herbs, lemon, melon and berries.Palate is watery with slick mouth-feel and smooth carbonation, with hints of tart. Aftertaste is hoppy and medium long bitter. The texture is little thin for hoppiness although IPA, little off balance. Still quite enjoyble.

Apelsin, plommon, aprikos och ett uns jäst registreras i doftsinnet. Välgjord men karaktärslös. Gör sig nog bäst till måltiden..och inte i soffan.

Arborescence (29) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Appearance Slightly hazy, light copper/amber, pours a lovely thick head. Aroma Very mild, surprisingly. Typical IPA hops can be detected, maybe a hint of floral aroma, but very little to it. Taste Quite mild in terms of the hops (Goldings hops), but they do kick in a little bit in the aftertaste, which is nice and lingering. The really surprising thing about this beer is the maltyness though; this is something that I don’t expect from an IPA. I do actually like it, there’s a nice balance between the hops and the malt. Then again, when I open a bottle of IPA I expect something a little more on the hoppy side. Overall I’m used to extremely hoppy IPAs from my visits to North America, so this one seems a little tame. A very drinkable beer though, would try again if there weren’t any other interesting options. This is also bottle conditioned, so it matures nicely in the bottle (this gives it the slightly cloudy appearance as well). I like many of the beers by Fuller’s — their London Porter is among my very favourites — but I don’t think I’ve tried this one before. Usually Fuller’s delivers, even if they are not the most inventive or experimental brewery.

Bottle. Stable and drinkable beer. Nice mix of caramel malts and flowery hops. A bit soapy.

dalfaro86 (307) - Mexico City, MEXICO - FEB 7, 2012
Aroma de intensidad media dominado por notas florales de lupulo, yo prefiero las notas citricas de lupulo, pero tambien me gustan de este tipo. Cabeza pequeña con buena retencion, cerveza color ambar. Cerveza de cuerpo medio, con sabor agridulce que empieza amargo seguido de balanceadas notas agridulces,con un final bastante amargo. En general buen sabor, aunque una vez mas dominado por notas florales. Nivel medio.alto de luplo, medio de malta y medio de carbonatacion, buena cerveza para empezar en el mundo de las IPA´S

culchiem (3234) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle from O’Briens off licence. Deep orange amber with a medium head. Fruity orange aroma. A lot of hop bitterness, but no great balance and a bit disappointing.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - JAN 28, 2012
50cl bottle. Amber colour with a small white head. Fruity hoppy aroma with malty notes. Flavour is sweetish malt, fruity hops and some bitterness. Medium-bodied, slightly bitter aftertaste. Quite good, well-balanced ipa.

thb (786) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
Hard not to judge it against an American-style hop bomb. Pours a bubbly orange with good sized lingering head. Aroma and taste are balance of sweet caramel malt and grassy/floral hops. Gentle bitter finish. There’s a mineraly/chalky character it that’s distracting though.

japi (156) - Neubrandenburg, GERMANY - JAN 13, 2012
An amber coloured beer with a small white head. The aroma is hoppy and citrusy. The taste is bitter with notes of fruits, resin, orange. The aftertaste is grassy, not so bitter like an american IPA. But it’s definitely a good beer!
