DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, - NOV 16, 2012
500ml bottle. Bronze with a scummy white foam. Annoying peach iced tea aroma; floral, peachy, a bit sickly. That same flavour without the hops to lay claim to IPA status. Sponge cake infused with peach air freshener; honey, orange Smartie notes. Would’ve loved this 5 years ago but I’m a fussy bugger these days and too into the hops. Pleasant enough but too watery, peachy and malt-sweet for me or the missus.

RichTheVillan (6639) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear amber pour with a thin white head, aroma has pine and grapefruit, taste has light pine and citrus, some sweet caramel.

Smithld1 (193) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2016
Cask at the rake. Quite pleasant but pretty boring. Not hoppy enough but a strange taste

blackradioboy (176) - SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2016

canddw (100) - - JUN 3, 2016
Clear amber pint with thin head. Light aroma of lemon and nuts. Light taste of grass, lemon, caramel. Some tartness before a medium, long bitter finish kicks in. A little watery but reasonably good overall.

jjsint (2322) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle from Saintsbury’s, consumed at home. Light gold, pretty much clear. Big white head but ir settles fairly quickly. Gentle orange and apricot aroma. Tastes bitter with a soft citrus sweetness, turning to a more emphatic bitter to the long luicy hoppy finish. Strong tropical fruit on the aftertaste. Carbonation is aggressive. It’s a good beer if fairly muted for an IPA. Easy drinking, it hangs together very nicely, hence the fairly high rate.

LazyPyro (566) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2016
500ml bottle from The Bottle Bank. Clear golden colour with a one finger white head and good retention, lacing. Aroma of American hops, grapefruit, malt, citrus, pine. Lovely hoppy flavour with a good amount of malt too, well balanced, sweet and bitter, citrus, lemon. Moderate carbonation, nice mouthfeel, little bit sweeter than other IPAs but I like it. A decent IPA.

BeerNinjaUK (243) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2016
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours fizzy clear light orange with big bubbles in the white head. Aroma of candy floss, citrus, pine and marshmallows. Taste nicely bitter with good sweetness.

JPC1524 (120) - Devon, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2016 Slightly hazy golden beer. Subtle biscuit / cereal notes with balanced floral and hoppy bitterness. Interesting with some complexity. A tasty IPA.

Idiosynkrasie (6396) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey, pale golden colour with small to average, thick, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney and minimally citrusy, hoppy aroma, hints of lemon, lemon biscuit, a minimally sulphuric touch. Taste is biscuity malty, minimally grainy, cautious citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of lemon, a strawy touch. So so.

BeerViking (4140) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s, amber-gold with a fine head and a spicy marmalade and tropical fruit nose. Dry toasted citrus, caramel and peppery bitterness. Good stuff.
