Boutip (5833) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
Bottle: Poured a nice golden amber color ale with a large foamy head with great retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of dry floral hops with light pungy notes. Taste is a nice drinkable mix between some dry floral notes with light pungy notes and solid dry caramel malt notes with some good cereal notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Solid mix of English hops and nice grain bill.

Pours clear amber. Good hop aroma. Zesty, punchy upfront with a little spice, mild caramel & nut flavour to balance it off. A well rounded classic style.

SirLimpsalot (3673) - SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2012
Svag lite jordig doft. Mycket bitter smak samt jordig humle som gir en lite besk eftersmak. Helt ok men inget mer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

haukur (1700) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 18, 2012
I have no idea why I havent rated this. It is a formidable ipa, classic english. Solid palate, a bit mild, some hop bite but not over the top. Very balanced and a decent session

edpeg (890) - 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.

slakemythirst (201) - - FEB 11, 2012
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.
