Practice beer courtesy of nimbleprop, our generous host, thank you sir. Straightforward IPA, tasty enough, hoppy enough, without being overbearing. No complaints.

yngwie (14775) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle, 12oz, at Haand Festival -14. It pours an almost clear body, golden in color and with a small, white head. The aroma is piney and citrus peel-ish, with some malts kicking in. Bitter flavor with piney, citrusy hops on a backdrop of pale malts. Full-bodied, soft and nicely carbonated, with bitter, citrusy finish. I prefer the even more hop forward west coast IPA’s, but this is a really fine one anyway. 140523

harrisoni (14715) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2008
Bottle from Utobeer. Gold with lasting white head. American hop aroma, a little woody, some grapefruit. Fairly toned down US IPA. Malts are a bit wonky. It’s fine, but as I say needs a bit more backbone. Hops are pretty generic.

MiP (14007) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle. Mild caramelly aroma. Almost clear dark golden colour. Very small white head. Good caramelly flavour. Not overly much, but enough. Slightly high bitterness, clean. Well-balanced. A good IPA for beginners.

TBone (13638) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2007
Bottled
Pale hazy yellow, small white head. Bready, parfumic hoppy nose. Basic bready, American hoppy flavour. Standard American IPA with slight honey sweetness. Nothing wrong in this brew, but not very interesting.

Leighton (13405) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2009
A rock-solid IPA here. Sampled it at a tasting while in college. Nice golden color with a medium head. Strong hops odor and flavor. A wonderful session beer.

Oakes (13185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2000
Impressively hoppy IPA - West Coast flavour from Mass. Good curranty notes. Had it with chili when I was in NYC. It was a brilliant combination, repeated frequently since.
